2014-01-30 13:52

nephritis, prednisone Prednisone is a kind of anti-inflammation drug and it is commonly prescribed to treat nephritis. However, long-term use of prednisone can cause many side effects so the patients with nephritis are eager to find an alternative treatment to prednisone.

Prednisone for nephritis

Nephritis is an immune-medicated disorder in which the immune system attacks kidneys by mistakes. The abnormal immune response can cause inflammation of kidneys. The inflammation may worsen renal function, resulting in progressive loss of renal function.

In treating nephritis, prednisone can control the inflammation of kidneys by suppressing the immune system. After a period of treatment, some patients will have a remission and the symptoms will also be relieved.

However, prednisone can not correct the immune dysfunction in nephritis. Whenever there is a triggering factor, the abnormal immune response will relapse. What’s worse, long-term use of prednisone can cause many adverse effects, as follows:

-Mood swings.

Stress, sudden anxiety, depression, over-stimulation and so forth are commonly seen in patients on prednisone.


Diabetes may occur in some people with nephritis on prednisone. This is because the medicine can disorder patients’ endocrine system, raising glucose level.

-Weakened immunity

Long-term use of prednisone not only can suppress immune response, but also can weaken immunity. It can make the patients prone to infection.
