Can Steroid Therapy Treat Nephrotic Syndrome Radically

2014-03-06 10:21


Q: I was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome(NS) a year back and used steroids for a couple of months. My protein in urine have some relieve, but after some time I found some protein loss again and my suggested to use steroids again. I now suspect that if steroid therapy can treat my disease fundamentally. Is there any alternative treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome?


A: To tell you the truth,steroid therapy or immunosuppressive drugs can not treat NS from the root. These drugs and other western drugs show quick effects on controlling symptoms but fail to treat the disease fundamentally and easily make the disease relapse, leading to a vicious cycle. That is to say, if you take some steroids for a long time, your illness conditions can not be alleviated; otherwise your illness conditions will be aggravated. This is because you do not treat the pathogenesis of the disease. In this condition, you miss the best time to treat your disease. However, it does not mean there is no other way to alleviate your nephrotic syndrome symptoms.

What is the alternative therapy for Nephrotic Syndrome?

Nephrotic Syndrome is not a independent kidney disease and actually refers to a group of clinical manifestations such as proteinuria, edema, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipidemia. Thus, the treatment should have comprehensive functions which refer that the treatment can not only control the symptoms effectively but also can repair damaged kidney tissues. Only in the way the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome can be stemmed. This therapy is Immunotherapy.

How does Immunotherapy treat NS from the root?

Immunotherapy is a newest therapy for kidney disease. It combines western medicines and Chinese herbs together. The western medicines are responsible for controlling symptoms like proteinuria, edema and vomiting and other symptoms. When the symptoms are under control, Chinese herbs are used to treat the disease radically which aims to repair the damaged glomeruli and prevent further kidney damage. Besides, the ingredients in Chinese herbs can dilate blood vessels, prevent anti-inflammation and coagulation and degrade extracellular matrix which will relieve the renal ischemia and hypoxia and increase the regeneration of damaged intrinsic cells. Gradually kidney function can be improved and then the relative symptoms can also be alleviated. More importantly, immunotherapy won’t cause nephrotic syndrome relapse. Because of its radical feature, many nephrotic syndrome patients favor it.
