Nephrotic Syndrome: Other Way to Check the Problem Aside from Biopsy

Question: Hi! my son has been diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. After taking prednisone for almost a month, the protein count is still high on the urine test result. The doctor advised us to take one more week medication but after one week and the result is the same. She said she will recommend for biopsy to check what is really the problem. Is there any other way that we can check the problem aside from biopsy?

Nephrotic Syndrome: Other Way to Check the Problem Aside from BiopsyAnswer: Renal biopsy is a procedure used to extract kidney tissue for laboratory analysis. It helps your doctor identify the type of kidney disease your son has, how severe it is, and the best treatment for it, but it is invasive, and it has many side effects, such as infections, blood urine, fever, acute renal failure, back pain, etc. That is why many kidney patients do not want to take renal biopsy. In fact, with the development of medical technology, many other ways are developed to help doctors have a clear diagnosis.

In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we have a series of characterized tests, such as

-Urinary protein component tests

-Early renal injury marker test

-Hematuria localization test

-Immune complex test

-Lymphocyte subgroup test

-SOD test

-Toxin index test, etc

The above tests can also help find out where kidneys are damaged and how severely the kidneys are damaged so as to help doctors find out the best treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome.

Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment. It can eliminate proteinuria, hematuria and edema. It can also help reduce the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome as much as possible. In fact, this is a systemic treatment, which is consisted of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, etc. After about one month’s treatment, his disease will be under control, and renal condition will get improved.

Aside from biopsy, there is other way to check the problem for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. If you can not find out these tests, welcome to Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
