FSGS relapse is an excruciating issue for the patients. It can quicken the renal function decline and onset of kidney failure. Then how to prevent FSGS relapse?

FSGS is an immune-mediated disorder.It occurs as the immune system fails to work normally and causes deposits of immune complexes in filtering units in kidneys.The deposits can cause inflammation of kidneys,thus resulting in renal function deterioration.
The conventional treatments in western medicines mainly focus on controlling symptoms like proteinuria,high blood pressure and edema.Also,immunosuppressive agents are used to suppress the inflammatory response in kidneys.These treatments can slow the progression of the disease to some extent.
