Must Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Take Steroids for Treatment

2016-10-22 06:35

Steroids for Nephrotic Syndrome The common treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is steroid therapy. People take steroids for nephrotic syndrome to help restore the kidney’s normal function and remove extra fluid from the body. Well then, must Nephrotic Syndrome patients take steroid for treatment? Is there any alternative remedy?

Steroids can have a quick and obvious effect in remitting patients’ condition especially when there are heavy protein in urine because steroids can affect the permeability of glomerular basement membrane, inhabiting inflammation, immune reaction and the secretion of aldosterone and antidiuretic hormone. However, steroids are not suitable for long time treatment because they can cause some side effects like moon face, weight gain and slow growth, etc. Most patients want to get rid of steroid therapy.

Is there any alternative to steroid for nephrotic syndrome?

Yes, in China, we treat Nephrotic Syndrome with Immunotherapy which includes six steps. These six steps are Immune Diagnosis, Immune Clearance, Immune Tolerance, Immune Adjustment, Immune Protection and Blockage. Different step has different function. In Nephrotic Syndrome, there are lots of immune complexes depositing in glomeruli. These immune complexes can cause inflammatory reaction and then damage kidney tissues. Then, the key point in Nephrotic Syndrome treatment is to remove these immune complexes out. Only in this way can Nephrotic Syndrome be treated from the root. Steroids and other western medicines can not expel immune complexes out so many patients with steroid therapy still experience relapse. To remove immune complexes out, the effective treatment in China is Immunotherapy which can decompose immune complexes and then remove them out. Besides, Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicines and Chinese medicines. Western medicines control symptoms quickly while Chinese medicines repair injured glomeruli and recover renal function effectively. In this way, you can get rid of steroids gradually and no relapse occurs.
