Can Prednisone Treat Nephrotic Syndrome Fundamentally

2014-02-28 17:33

Can Prednisone Treat Nephrotic Syndrome FundamentallyCan prednisone treat Nephrotic Syndrome (NS)fundamentally? Actually it does not cure NS from the root. And the following will give you the reason.

Nephrotic syndrome is characterized by proteinuria, edema, hyperlipidemia and hypoalbuminemia. And prednisone is just able to relieve some symptoms of nephrotic syndrome and is prone to cause NS relapse if you take prednisone for a longer time. The reason may include the following factors.

1. A longer time use of prednisone will cause cortical atrophy of the adrenal gland which can not secrete some enough hormones once you stop taking this medicine.

2. Prednisone may cause many side effects like high blood pressure, osteoporosis, low immunity, infections,etc. These side effects will aggravate your conditions.

From the above,we can see prednisone can only alleviate some symptoms but fail to treat kidney damage from the root. What’s worse, side effects of prednisone are more likely to worsen your kidney conditions.

Therefore, treating nephrotic syndrome fundamentally must start from repairing kidney damage. With this regard, Chinese Medicine treatment is suggested for you. The Chinese medicine treatment includes Chinese herbs, Micro-Chinese medicine osmotherapy, medicated bath, foot bath, enema and acupuncture, etc. It treats nephrotic syndrome with this systemic therapy. On the whole, Chinese medicine is able to prevent inflammation and coagulation, blood vessel dilation and extracellular matrix degradation, remove blood stasis and provide nutrients and enough blood for damaged kidneys. In this way, kidney damage can be restored gradually and Chinese medicines have little or no side effects.

As long as kidney damage is restored, nephrotic syndrome relapse will not happen. Therefore, no what which disease you treat, you should treat it fundamentally.
