Nephrotic Syndrome Should Be Treated in This Way

Nephrotic Syndrome Should Be Treated in This WayPrognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome varies widely: either it is completely cured, or it often relapses, and some patients with poor outcomes will quickly go into renal failure. Do you want to know your prognosis?

Take the following four common case types for example:

-Mesangial capillary glomerulonephritis, which accounts for about 10% of primary Nephrotic Syndrome, is difficult to treat. Generally, the prognosis in childhood is good, while the curative effect in adulthood is poor and the cure rate is relatively low.

-Minimal Change Disease, a common type of Nephrotic Syndrome, in which 3 to 4 percent of patients may have spontaneous remission months later, and 90% of patients treated with hormone therapy can achieve a good effect, but the recurrence rate of this Nephrotic Syndrome is as high as 60 percent with poor prognosis.

-Membranous Nephropathy, more common in elderly Nephrotic Syndrome patients, accounted for about 30 percent of adults with primary Nephrotic Syndrome. The insidious onset of the disease shows slow progression, and patients are highly prone to thrombosis, and embolism. Often after 5 to 10 years of onset, it gradually causes renal function damage.

-Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis accounts for about 30% of primary Nephrotic Syndrome. The cure rate is related to the severity of pathological changes. The curative effect and prognosis of patients with slight illness condition is better than the severe one.

All in all, the cure rate and prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome vary with different etiologies, pathological types and drug sensitivity.

If you do not want to develop uremia, how to treat Nephrotic Syndrome?

Although the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome is closely related to primary disease and pathological type, the standard treatment is the most important.

1. Combined treatment with immunosuppressant and glucocorticoid can effectively reduce proteinuria and control inflammation.

2. Patients who are not sensitive to hormones can be appropriately treated with cytotoxic drugs.

3. Combined treatment with Chinese medicine and western medicine. Steroids and immunosuppressants are not suitable for all pathological types. In such a case, Chinese medicine will have a great effect. In the initial treatment, you can mainly use western medicine and use Chinese medicine auxiliarily. When illness condition get controlled, you can gradually reduce the dosage of western medicine and use Chinese medicine mainly.

Nephrotic Syndrome treatment requires a comprehensive approach. No matter what type of patient you are, you must be treated in a regular hospital for kidney disease. The doctor will make the most suitable treatment plan according to your specific situation. Even you have a pathologic type of poor prognosis, as long as you receive standard treatment, you can significantly slow down the progression of kidney disease and reduce the incidence of uremia.
