How Long Can FSGS Patient with Stage 5 Kidney Disease Live

2016-03-11 14:38

How Long Can FSGS Patient with Stage 5 Kidney Disease LiveUsually, without good control, FSGS will aggravate into stage 5, which may cause severe health problems, even be life-threatening. Then how long can FSGS patients with stage 5 kidney disease live?

How can FSGS progressed into stage 5?

To treat FSGS, patients usually use glucocorticoid. If patients can get remission for long time with this medicine, their prognosis will be relatively good. However, if FSGS relapses and presents Nephrotic Syndrome, patients' prognosis may be bad and their FSGS aggravates into chronic kidney failure easily. When kidney function declines to 15% or less, we call it stage 5 kidney disease.

How long can FSGS patient with stage 5 kidney disease live?

When FSGS develops into end stage, kidneys will lose nearly all of their ability to filter blood and play their other functions. Then, heart failure, pulmonary edema, high potassium level, metabolic acidosis, heart failure, and some other dangerous complications are more likely to shorten patients' lifespan and life expectancy easily.

If patients have these problems and don't take prompt treatment options, they may die quickly. Fortunately, some therapies are able to prolong patients' life expectancy and improve their life quality.

What treatment can be used for prolong the FSGS patient’s life span?

Dialysis and kidney transplant are most conventional therapies to treat kidney failure patients, because dialysis can help replace kidneys to cleanse the blood and kidney transplant can give a brand new life for patients with CKD Stage 5.

If patients still have certain kidney function, some alternative therapies can be used to prolong patients' life and improve their life quality. Then, patients can live for long time without life-threatening complications.
