2013-11-30 15:13

Lifelong Prognosis for Children with FSGSFSGS is short for focal segmental glomerulous sclerosis. It is a common primary glomerular disease among children and adults. Once children are unluckily diagnosed with FSGS, parents may concern about many things, such as treatment, diet, symptoms, causes etc. Prognosis is also a problem that always troubles parents.

Prognosis has relationship with many factors.

1. Proteinuria

-If protein in your child’s urine is between 3 and 3.5 g per day, there are 50 percent possibility for him/her to develop to end stage kidney disease in 6-8 years.

-If there is less than 3 g protein in your child’s urine, kidney function may retain normal after 10 years.

2. Treatment

A good prognosis has close relationship with treatment. A successful treatment can help your child get rid of kidney failure. Steroidal drugs are common drugs used to treat FSGS. If your child is not allergic to them, only 15 percent of them may develop to kidney failure. Here natural remedies without side effects are recommended. For more information about natural remedies, you can contact our doctor online or leave us a message. We will make a treatment plan for your child according to his/her state of illness.

3. Age

The older your child is, the better prognosis he/she has. It is reported that about 76 percent of children will develop to Nephrotic Syndrome and 80 percent of the children will relapse.

4. Race

Black children have high morbidity than white children and once they are diagnosed with FSGS, the illness develops very quickly. About 78 percent of black children will develop to end stage kidney disease, while there is only 33 percent of white children.

5. High blood pressure

If blood pressure is not under control, there is bad prognosis.

6. Kidney tissue pathology

If there is damage to your child’s kidney, membranous, mesangial proliferative and vascular, he/she is prone to kidney failure.

This is only a general introduction to prognosis for children with FSGS. The specific prognosis may vary from patient to patient. At last, hope your child recover and live a healthy life.
