Is Nephrotic Syndrome A Part of Chronic Kidney Disease

Is Nephrotic Syndrome A Part of Chronic Kidney DiseaseNephrotic Syndrome is a medical condition, in which glomeruli become leaky so that massive protein spills into urine. Is Nephrotic Syndrome a part of chronic kidney disease (CKD)?

First, let’s learn more information about Nephrotic Syndrome.

CKD is a condition characterized by a gradual loss of kidney function over time. It can also cause swelling and protein leakage. But not all CKD patients have Nephrotic Syndrome.

The diagnostic criteria of Nephrotic Syndrome includes:

-Protein in urine is more than 3.5 g/d

-Plasma albumin is less than 30 g/L



Nephrotic Syndrome does not damage your kidneys if you take timely and effective treatment, so you can lead a normal life with full kidney function. From this point of view, Nephrotic Syndrome is not a part of CKD. But without good control, Nephrotic Syndrome can cause kidney function impairment. From this point of view, it is a part of CKD.

How to treat Nephrotic Syndrome and prevent kidney failure?

Conventional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants. They can block kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. But they can not cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys. It is those immune complexes that causes kidney inflammation. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup) can decompose the deposited immune complexes to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. They can also dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the damaged kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. Besides, they can lower blood cholesterol and regulate blood sugar level. In a good blood environment, your kidneys can repair themselves quickly.
