The most typical type of MN is immune complex glomerulonephritis. Its own or foreign antigens stimulating the body produce the corresponding antibodies. The combination of antigen and antibodies will form immune complex. Then immune complex will deposit in the glomerular basement membrane(GBM) and further activate complement. Finally clinical proteinuria appears.

4. Natural remedy

Steroids and immunosupppressants can prevent immune response and alleviate proteinuria to some extent. While they only control the symptoms. The root cause of MN cannot be solved. In this condition, a natural and radical solution is recommended to treat membranous nephropathy. This therapy is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
