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. Nephrotic Syndrome patients will have irreversible symptoms under long-term of steroid treatment.

Long term of over dosage of glucocorticoid will lead to disorder of fluid, salt, sugar, protein and fat metabolic disorder. Adrenocortical hyperfunction occur. Patients under this condition will suffer from osteoporosis and even spontaneous fracture.

Glucocorticoid will weaken your body’s ability to defense disease, which contributes to the bacteria reproduction and spread. This tends to trigger or worsen infection.

Glucocorticoid will promote the break-down of protein and delay the formation of granulation tissue. This is not beneficial for the healing of trauma or surgical wounds.

Glucocorticoid has function of fighting growth hormone. If children take glucocorticoid for a long time, it will prevent the bone growth and protein synthesis, and affect growth and development. Pregnant women take glucocorticoid, which may lead to fetal malformation.

When symptoms get controlled, if you reduce the dosage too quickly or stop taking medicines suddenly, your symptoms may appear again or get worse. Other medical conditions may also appear like joint pain, muscle pain and muscle stiffness.

In a word, steroid only cures the symptoms not the disease. Almost all kidney diseases are the result of damaged immune system and low immunity. When immune system is damaged, the harmful foreigners cannot be removed when they attack our body, they will pile up in our body, forming immune complexes connecting with antibodies in our body.
