Therapy for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients with Oedema and Hyperlipidemia

Therapy for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients with Oedema and Hyperlipidemia“What therapy you suggest for Nephrotic Syndrome patients with oedema and hyperlipidemia?” This questions was put forward by one of our renal patients. If you are with the similar doubt, hope this article will be helpful for you.

Generally speaking, oedema should be treated with diuretics, and hyperlipidemia should be treated with statins. But both oedema and hyperlipidemia is associated with massive protein leakage. Therefore, to control these symptoms, you need to stop protein leakage. Conventional treatment is to use steroids. If you are steroid-sensitive, proteinuria will be reduced and turn negative quickly. But if you are steroid-dependant or steroid-resistant, this problem will become tough, because steroids are no longer effective. In such a case, you may have to take immunosuppressants or the combination of them.

If your condition can not get improved with the above treatment, or the disease gets relapse frequently, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment to reinforce the effect.

This therapy is also known as Detoxification Therapy. It can eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement so as to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also expand blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients, active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

-After about one week’s treatment, oedema will get relieved significantly. And with the relief of oedema, your weight will reduce.

-After about half month’s treatment, swelling will disappear. Proteinuria will reduce. And hyperlipidemia will decrease.

-After about one month’s treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control.

With treatment going on, your kidney condition will get better, and the therapeutic effect will be reinforced, so the disease won’t relapse easily.
