When Do FSGS Patients Need Dialysis and Kidney Transplant

As a patient with FSGS, you may be wondering when dialysis and kidney transplant is needed. Here we will talk about this issue, and hope you can learn about something from the following content.

Generally speaking, dialysis or kidney transplant will be required when FSGS and other types of kidney diseases develop kidney failure. However, as a matter of fact, when dialysis is needed depends on patients’ specific conditions. For instance, some cases have not developed kidney failure, but patients are having severe complications such as shortness of breath, pulmonary edema, severe nausea and vomiting, heart problem and so on, or their serum potassium level is more than 7mmol/l, then we recommend FSGS patients to start urgent dialysis to avoid more severe consequence happening. So, according to patients’ lab tests and their specific symptoms, doctors will help decide when dialysis is needed.

Speaking of kidney transplant, it is regarded as the last choice for patients with end-stage renal disease in many countries. Many FSGS patients are on dialysis now, while waiting for the chance to receive kidney transplant. We have to tell FSGS patients that kidney transplant may not be the best choice as this kidney disorder has a high relapse rate after the operation in the clinic, and the relapse rate can be 50%. Once the new kidney is damaged, patients have to undergo dialysis again and wait for another transplant. We have met so many cases in the clinic.

So we hope FSGS patients could be treated with the proper methods to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. As long as the kidney damage can be repaired and kidney function can be recovered, it will be achieved.
