How to Relieve Fluid Retention for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Question: Hi, I recently relapsed with my Nephrotic Syndrome. I was in the hospital July 10 and have been taking 60 mg prednisone daily. I am retaining about 15 pounds of fluid. I’m in a lot of discomfort. Do you recommend anything I can try?

How to Relieve Fluid Retention for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsAnswer: Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by massive protein leakage, edema, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipidmia. Prednisone is to help you suppress renal inflammation and reduce protein leakage so as to relieve hypoproteinemia and swelling. But since now you have so much fluid retention, you can take diuretic (or water pills) to flush out the excess fluid from body. Considering that prednisone has many side effects, one of which is water retention. We recommend you a systemic Chinese medicine treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. It can help you have a permanent control of Nephrotic Syndrome so as to reduce its relapse greatly.

Water retention can be relieved greatly with one week’s Toxin-Removing Treatment.

It makes use of medicated bath, foot bath, steam therapy and so on to increase your urine output, make you sweat and improve your bowel movement so that wastes and excess fluid can be taken away from body.

Toxin-Removing Treatment can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to ensure blood flow fluent, and then essential elements such as nutrients, vitamins, and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

Moreover, this treatment can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to relieve renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

It can also strengthen immunity and help you train good living habits so as to reinforce the effect and reduce its relapse.

-After about two week’s treatment, proteinuria will reduce or even turn negative.

-After about four week’s treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
