Lupus Nephrotic Syndrome, Retaining Liquids, Gaining Weight, Proteinuria: What to Do

Question: Hello, I'm suffering of Nephrotic Syndrome due to Lupus, retaining liquids, gaining weight due to prednisone, still high proteinuria... what can I do?

Lupus Nephrotic Syndrome, Retaining Liquids, Gaining Weight, Proteinuria: What to DoAnswer: Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which can attack kidneys, leading to Nephrotic Syndrome. At present, the traditional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is steroid, such as prednisone. Steroid treatment has the advantage of inhibiting immune response, and stopping urine protein and occult blood symptomatically. But it can not repair the renal pathological damage which leads to the symptoms like proteinuria. So the disease can be induced easily by a cold, tiredness, infection, or improper reducing medicine dosage. That is why Nephrotic Syndrome relapses again and again when we only try to remove the symptoms, leaving the main problem—damaged renal cells unsolved. What’s more, medicine like prednisone have many side effects, such as weight gain, moon face, depression, memory loss, etc. Therefore, you had better try a treatment to reduce the side effects of prednisone, while controlling the disease well.

Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment for Lupus Nephrotic Syndrome.

This treatment is also known as Detoxification Therapy. It is actually a systemic treatment, which includes a variety of therapies, such as plasma exchange, oral Chinese medicine, external Chinese therapies (like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, etc), cytokine infusion therapy, negative oxygen ion infusion therapy, good habits, etc. It can clear immune complexes and other waste products from kidneys and blood to make internal environment clean. 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. Besides, it can improve blood circulation so that essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

-After about one week’s treatment, your weight will be reduced, and fluid retention will get relieved.

-After about half month’s treatment, swelling will disappear, and proteinuria will reduce.

-After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
