Will Cyclophosphamide Used in Nephrotic Syndrome Cause Menelipsis

2015-01-31 07:12

Will Cyclophosphamide Used in Nephrotic Syndrome Cause MenelipsisA 40-year-old woman diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome (NS) consulted us that her doctor prescribed cyclophosphamide to treat her. However, she only took this medication once but she experienced menelipsis. Is this normal for her?

Experts in Shi Jiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital deem that cyclophosphamide in western medicines is cytotoxic drug and has great side effects. One of the side effects is that menstrual quantity reduces gradually and menelipsis occurs. As for this, western medicine considers this condition as normal while Chinese medicine thinks that menelipsis is caused when this medication cause damages on blood and qi, so it is not normal and menelipsis must be treated. Chinese medicines can treat this condition such as angelica sinensis, donkey-hide gelatin and rehmannia glutinosa, etc.

Western medicine doctors tell patients that reduced menstrual quantity, menelipsis, vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea and calvities are side effects of western medicines and they are not life-threatening. When the treatment ends, these side effects can be alleviated or disappear naturally. However, some patients after treatment have no recovery.

In this condition, the best treatment for nephrotic syndrome is Chinese medicine. We know nephrotic syndrome is an immune-related kidney disease. In normal conditions, the immune system can fight against the virus from outside and protect our body from being damaged. However, in nephrotic syndrome, the damaged immune system cannot remove the virus. Consequently, the virus will deposit in the kidneys, causing kidney problems. Chinese medicines can remove the virus deposition in the body, which can stop immune inflammatory reaction and kidney damage. What’s more, Chinese herbal medicine can also expand blood circulation, repair damaged kidney tissues and improve renal function, etc.

Therefore, we recommend that cyclophosphamide combines Chinese medicine together to treat nephrotic syndrome. It can not only reduce the side effects of western medicines but also avoid future’s relapse.
