What Causes the Relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome

What Causes the Relapse of Nephrotic SyndromeThe treatment course of Nephrotic Syndrome is a long process, during which patients have to bear the various body malaise. As long as there are no symptoms, patients tend to pay less attention, leading to the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome easily. Frequent relapse speeds up kidney failure, so importance should be attached. What causes the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome?


Some research show that Nephrotic Syndrome relapse is associated with the antigenicity of white blood cells. Patients with certain white blood cells relapse easily. And this antigenicity is inherited. That is to say, those patients have to suffer from frequent relapse.


Infections especially upper respiratory tract infections can also cause relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. For some patients, as long as they have cold, there is protein in urine and sometimes there is edema. When you recover, proteinuria disappears. But sometimes patients have to take steroids to control symptoms.

Long-term use of prednisone

Prednisone is the common used drugs to reduce protein leakage. But it can cause cortical atrophy. When you stop prednisone, the cortical atrophy can not secrete enough steroid, which may contribute to the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. Therefore, you had better not use prednisone for long-term.

Improper medicine use

Some patients stop the medicine or reduce its dosage as long as their symptoms are relieved. This leads to the relapse easily. Therefore, we should use the medicine correctly and take them under the instruction of doctor.

To know what causes the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome can help you do a good job in daily care. Do not relax yourself as long as it is cured clinically.
