What Shows Improvement in Nephrotic Syndrome when Steroids Are Used

What Shows Improvement in Nephrotic Syndrome when Steroids Are UsedWhat shows improvement in Nephrotic Syndrome when steroids are used? To know the answer can help you know whether your treatment is effective or not.

Steroid can reduce the exudation of acute inflammation, stabilize the lysosomal membrane, decrease fibrin composure and reduce capillary permeability so as to lower urinary protein leakage. It can also inhibit the hyperplasia reaction in chronic inflammation, reduce the activity of fibroblasts, and reduce the fibrosis caused by tissue repair. If you are steroid-sensitive, Nephrotic Syndrome will get complete remission within 8-12 weeks. If you are steroid-dependant, when you reduce steroid to certain degree, the disease comes back. If you are steroid-resistant, steroid has no effect on your disease.

To judge whether steroid has effect or not, you can see your proteinuria and swelling. If bubbles in urine reduces gradually, and swelling disappears, it means the effect is effective. You should also do checkups such as urine test and test test regularly to see the therapeutic effect so as to adjust the treatment plan timely to achieve a better effect.

If your disease does not get improved at all after steroid treatment, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment.

This treatment has been practiced in Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine for years. It can turn proteinuria and hematuria negative, and make swelling vanish. It also shows remarkable effect on refractory proteinuria, hematuria and edema.

This treatment is actually a systemic treatment, which takes advantage of various Chinese therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and so on to improve internal environment. It can have a thorough cleanse of the blood. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation. And it can also provide the essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can relieve renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will fade away. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will decrease or even turn negative. With treatment going on, you can have a permanent control of Nephrotic Syndrome without worrying about its frequent relapse.
