Nephrotic Syndrome, Appearance of Hairs on Face and Body: What Should I Do

Question: My daughter (9 years old) has been diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome with excessive proteinuria. She is on prednisone and relapsed twice. She got weight from 22 kg to 32 kg with appearance of hairs on her face and body. What should I do?

Nephrotic Syndrome, Appearance of Hairs on Face and BodyAnswer: For Nephrotic Syndrome, large amount of protein and swelling are the main symptoms. And for this kind of disease, the doctor usually prescribes some steroids, such as prednisone, while these medicines can only eliminate the symptoms temporarily.

Long-term intake of these steroids may cause problems, such as weight again and appearance of hairs on face and body. They may even affect her growth and development. So you should be cautious to use it. All steroids have many side effects. And once she stops taking the medicines, or suddenly reduce the amount of medicines, she will get relapse easily, and it can also recur when she catches a cold or infection. What is worse, the disease will aggravate every time it relapses. The vicious circle is a torture both to the child and the pares.

So steroids can only symptomatically treat the disease and it can not eliminate the disease from root.

The reason why she gets Nephrotic Syndrome is that excess substances in body cause damage to her kidney cells., so the key to the treatment now is to repair her damaged kidney, otherwise the damaged ones will die. The dead kidney units can never be reverted. As long as the remained kidney function can be repaired in time, the symptoms of her high proteinuria and swelling can get better.

Toxin-Removing Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we mainly use Chinese medicine to treat kidney disease, which does not have so many side effects as steroids. For your daughter’s case, we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment. It includes several therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy and so on. It can eliminate metabolic wastes and excess fluid from body via sweat, urine and bowel movement. It can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, it can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to keep blood circulation fluent, and then essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients, and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

-After about one week’s treatment, swelling will vanish.

-After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will reduce or even turn negative.

-After about one month’s treatment, her Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control, and renal function will get improved.

Because both kidney condition and immunity get strengthened, the disease won’t relapse so easily.

For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, it is likely to have appearance of hairs on face and body due to the side effects of steroids. If you would like to try natural remedies, Toxin-Removing Treatment will be a good choice. For more information on our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
