Nephrotic Syndrome: Is 1+ Protein in Urine A Relapse

Question: Hi! My son is taking prednisone now for his Nephrotic Syndrome. His medicine is tapered into every other day but when I check his urinalysis after two weeks he has +1 protein in his urine. Is that a relapse already?

Nephrotic Syndrome: Is 1+ Protein in Urine A RelapseAnswer: Prednisone is commonly used to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. It can help reduce proteinuria and swelling. But do you know what does it work? It is to suppress immune system and inhibit renal inflammation so as to decrease the permeability of cell wall, and then protein won’t go out. When its intake tapers, renal inflammation becomes active again, and then it is likely for patients to have proteinuria. From what you said, I think your son has a relapse already. However, his protein in urine is not that much. With proper treatment, it is possible to turn proteinuria negative. Here proper treatment does not mean prednisone.

Toxin-Removing Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

This is a systemic Chinese medicine, which includes Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy, etc. It can dissolve toxins to make blood flow fluent so that more essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. It can also dispel toxins and discharge toxins out of body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will disappear. Half month’s later, proteinuria will turn negative. After about one month’s treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control. Because kidney condition and immunity both get improved, the disease won’t relapse. And with the improvement of your medical condition, the patient can get rid of prednisone completely.

Regular checkups are necessary for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Once protein presents in urine again, it means the disease comes back, and then immediate treatment should be taken to prevent it worsening.
