Nephrotic Syndrome and Lactulose

Nephrotic Syndrome and LactuloseDo you know lactulose? Recently a Nephrotic Syndrome patient visited our website and consulted our online doctor about it. Can Nephrotic Syndrome patients take lactulose? Does it have any side effects? And does it affect kidneys? Read on to learn more information.

What is lactulose?

It is an oral drug used to treat constipation. It is a synthetic sugar, which breaks down in your large intestine and then draws water into the intestine. This softens your stool, easing constipation. But it may also cause burping, gas, nausea, cramps, severe diarrhea, stomach discomforts, vomiting, etc.

Note: this medication may counteract with some medications you take, so talk with your doctor.

Why Nephrotic Syndrome patients are easy to get constipation?

-Water restriction

-Physical inactivity

-Diet restriction which can lower the intake of fiber

-Side effect of medications

How to relieve constipation naturally for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

Here we suggest you a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, Toxin-Removing Treatment. It takes advantage of numerous Chinese therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, and so on to improve your bowel movement so as to ease your constipation. It can also make you sweat and increase your urine output so that more waste products can be taken away from body. Besides, it can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that enough essential elements can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, your constipation will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, your swelling will vanish, and proteinuria will reduce. After about one month’s treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control. It won’t relapse as easily as before, because your kidneys will be repaired during treatment.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients can use lactulose for constipation, but you had better talk with your doctor. If you would like to try natural remedies, Toxin-Removing Treatment will be a good choice for you. It does not only alleviate your constipation, but also help you have a permanent control of Nephrotic Syndrome.
