Nephrotic Syndrome due to Horseshoe Kidney: Is It Life Threatening Disease

Question: Hi sir, my cousin is 19 years old. He is suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome due to horseshoe kidney. Is it life threatening disease?

Nephrotic Syndrome due to Horseshoe Kidney: Is It Life Threatening DiseaseAnswer: Horseshoe kidney is the most common type of renal fusion anomaly. For some patients they do not have any symptoms. In such case, horseshoe kidneys in themselves do not require any treatment, and patients have normal life expectancy. But for some patients, they have many symptoms and complications. In such case, they may need abdominal surgery or renal intervention for their many complications. As we can see, your cousin has Nephrotic Syndrome. It usually results from diabetes, high blood pressure, immune complexes deposition and so on. It is not life-threatening as well, because it can be controlled very well with proper treatment.

How to treat Nephrotic Syndrome caused by horseshoe kidney?

-Conventional treatment is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage. Diuretics sometimes are needed to relieve water retention.

-4M treatment (Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various medicinal soup) can expand blood vessels to lower blood pressure and increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to prevent ischemia and anoxia. They can speed up blood circulation to remove stasis. They can cleanse waste products and excessive fluid from your body to reduce their damage to your body. All in all, they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. Besides, they can decompose the immune complexes in the blood to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome can be stabilized. Because 4M treatment can make your whole body harmonious and balanced, you won’t need to worry about frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Nephrotic Syndrome is not life-threatening if it is brought under control timely and effectively.
