How to Come off Steroids for Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: My daughter was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome in April 2016. She is now steroid dependent. I want her to be able to come off steroids. Can you help me?

How to Come off Steroids for Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: For steroid-dependent Nephrotic Syndrome patients, once they reduce steroid intake, their proteinuria and swelling will come back. But it does not mean they can not come off steroids.

Steroids should be tapered gradually for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

Because suddenly stopping steroid treatment after it has been take for a long time can be dangerous, as the sudden shortage of steroids causes an Addisonian crisis. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, to help patients stop steroids, we usually use systemic Chinese medicine treatment together with steroids.

Systemic Chinese medicine treatment such as Toxin-Removing Treatment is to make use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Cycle Therapy, Moxibustion, Navel Therapy and oral Chinese medicine to remove massive waste products and excess fluid out of body via your urine, stool and sweat, making internal environment clean for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so as to supply them with enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine to speed up kidney recovery. Besides, it can strengthen your immunity to fight against the disease. After about one week’s treatment, your swelling will get relieved. After about half month’s treatment, your swelling will vanish, and proteinuria will be reduced. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control gradually. With the improvement of your condition, you can taper steroids gradually. At last, your proteinuria will turn negative, and you can totally stop steroids. Because your kidney condition has returned normal, your disease can be controlled very well without few relapse.
