Does Change in Weather Cause Relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: My 4.5 year old daughter is diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. She is on second course of steroid now. Now the little girl is having cough and with changing weather. I am just wondering if this relapse is due to change in weather and she developed cough?

Does Change in Weather Cause Relapse of Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: Nephrotic Syndrome has a high morbidity in children especially those younger than age 5. One character of Nephrotic Syndrome is its frequent relapse.

Change in weather is a common cause of relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. When weather changes, immunity becomes low. If you do not put on clothes or take off clothes according to the weather, it is easy for bacteria and virus to enter into the body, causing flu and some other infection. This can stimulate the immune system to secrete antibodies. And then antibodies combine with those antigen to produce immune complexes. Those immune complexes flow into the kidneys with blood circulation. If your kidneys can not remove them out of the body timely, they deposit in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation so as to cause relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Some other factors that trigger the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome

-Considering the side effects of steroids, many patients stop the medicine or reduce its dosage without the instruction of doctor. This increases your risk of relapse.

-Negative emotion affects your sleeping quality so as to cause relapse.

-Over fatigue, improper diet and some other factors.

How to reduce the relapse frequency of Nephrotic Syndrome?

If you want to reduce the relapse frequency of Nephrotic Syndrome, you should repair the damaged kidneys and resume your kidney function. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various Medicinal Soup) can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. They can also decompose the deposited immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. Besides, they can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. All in all, they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, kidney function can be recovered.

Does change in weather cause relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome? Yes. Therefore, when weather changes, you should take good care of your daughter to prevent its relapse. If you are interested in our treatment, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
