Steroid Treatment Is A Double-edged Sword For Nephrotic SyndromeThe application of glucocorticoid is an indispensable aspect in the treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome. Glucocorticoid can relieve patients’ pain and improve the short-term therapeutic effect to some extent, but uncontrollable steroid application also brings some harms to patients’ health.
