Why Protein Is Still Frothy After Steroid Treatment for FSGS Patients

Question: My husband was diagnosed with FSGS. He was prescribed 3 months ago steroids - prednisone I think and started with 60 mg dosage, now that the results (blood and urine tests) seem really good, he is allowed to decrease the dosage and he is on 25 mg now. Dr said that there is around 1% protein in his urine. The question is why is his urine then still frothy?

Why Protein Is Still Frothy After Steroid Treatment for FSGS PatientsAnswer: Steroid is the common medicine to treat proteinuria. It can inhibit the inflammation in the kidneys so as to reduce the leakage of protein. FSGS means that some glomeruli are necrotic. Once they are dead, no treatment can bring them back to life. That is why your husband still has foamy urine even after steroid treatment. Some patients have dependent on steroids to control their proteinuria. But long-term use of steroid has many side effects, such as increased appetite, puffiness of the face, headache, etc. Now what he should do is to protect his kidney function and reduce the side effects brought by steroids. Here let’s see some natural remedies to make the whole body balanced and harmonious.

Proteinuria is associated with the impairment of glomerular basement membrane. If you want to improve kidney function, you should repair the damaged glomerular basement membrane. But first we should set up a clean blood environment for kidney self-healing. Therapies such as medicated bath, enema therapy and circle therapy can draw out toxins from your body. Then Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used to dilate blood vessels, inhibit kidney inflammation, block blood clotting and stop kidney fibrosis. With systemic treatment, there is an improvement of kidney function.
