How to Prevent the Relapse of FSGS in Children
FSGS refers to a medical condition in which the filters (glomeruli) became inflamed. It can affect both children and adults. However, this disorder can relapse easily in children. Then are there some effective preventive measures?
Frankly speaking, it is usually hard to control FSGS. In certain cases, this disorder may remit spontaneously. However, most of the children will experience progressive loss of kidney function. If left untreated, it will develop into kidney failure eventually.
Why does FSGS recur easily in children?
In FSGS, the immune system fail to work adequately. In general, some immunosuppressive agents or steroids including prednisone can be used to relieve the abnormal inflammatory reaction in kidneys, but unfortunately, these drugs can not treat it fundamentally. What’s more, long-term use of these drugs can also lead to some adverse effects. When there are some triggers, such as, cold, upper respiratory tract infection, etc, it will recur easily.
Are there some effective preventive measures to reduce the high relapse rate of FSGS in children?
