Stop Steroids Successfully for Nephrotic Syndrome

Stop Steroids Successfully for Nephrotic SyndromeHow to stop steroids is a problem for most Nephrotic Syndrome patients, because as long as you stop the medications, this disorder comes back. But for Mr.Cui, he stops steroids successfully and his disease does not come back any more. Do you want to know how he treats his disease? Go on reading to learn his story.

2 years ago, Mr.Cui was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. In the beginning, he was treated in the local hospital. And the treatment there was very simple:

To eat steroids for 12 pieces in the initial treatment, and then reduce its intake to 3-4 pieces, but the disease came back. He changed to another hospital, but he needed to take12 pieces of steroids again. When he tapered its intake to 3-4, it recurred again. It seemed that it was a circle.

Facing the frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome, Mr.Cui was very worried to develop to kidney failure. When he heard that his classmate’s sister had been treated in Shijiazhuang for Purpura Nephritis and achieved a good effect. He decided to have a try.

In July 2015, he had severe feet swelling so as to outgrow the normal shoes. And he had so severe moon face that he did not look the same as his identity card.

The reason why he had so bad swelling was that his 24h urine protein was as high as 5.73g.

After about half month’s treatment, his urine protein and occult blood became normal.

When seeing the result, Mr.Cui did not show any surprise, because he had seen it for many times. What made him happy was that when he tapered steroid intake to 3-4 pieces, his disease did not recur. And with the improvement of his condition, he kept on tapering steroid intake. Three months ago, he kept on medical treatment plan and stopped steroids totally. Now all the side effects caused by steroids disappeared, and his urine protein was still within normal range.

Though Mr.Cui can still not do heavy work, he can lead a normal life. As long as he can keep this condition for 2-3 years, he will recover completely, and then he can do whatever he wants to.
