FSGS (focal segmental glomerulus sclerosis) is a kind of kidney disease, which is a cause of Nephrotic Syndrome and describes scarring in the kidney. When diagnosed with FSGS, you may wonder whether FSGS can be cured or not. Honestly speaking, there is no cure to FSGS, but the symptoms and the progression of the disease can be controlled by medications.
Proteinuria is often treated by steroids. High blood pressure is often treated by hypotensive drugs, such as ACE inhibitors and ARB. Swelling is often treated by diuretics. They are really effective in controlling symptoms. But over time, they have side effects.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
If you can not bear the side effects of western medicine, you can choose some natural herbs, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tripterygium wilfordii, lumbricus, periostracum cicada, dandelion and so on are often used to treat proteinuria. Lucid ganoderma, rheum officinale, astragalus membranaceus and so on are often used to treat high blood pressure. And corn silk, nettle leaf, salvia, genseng and so on are often used to treat swelling. Compared with western medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine takes effects slowly, but they have no side effects.
Combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine
To make up each shortcoming, combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine are becoming favored by more and more people. You can use western medicine to control your symptoms first, and then use Traditional Chinese Medicine to regulate your whole body.
