Should I Use Medicine till End of My Life with Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: I have been suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome. Will it cured permanently? Should I use medicine till end of my life?

Should I Use Medicine till End of My Life with Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: With Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), your kidneys can not retain protein in your body, leading to proteinuria. Nephrotic Syndrome occurs when your protein leakage is more than 3.5 g/d and plasma albumin is less than 30 g/L. CKD can not be cured.

Conventional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome may persist for long-term.

Conventional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is just to eliminate the symptoms clinically. For example, steroids and immunosuppressants are often used to suppress inflammation and reduce protein leakage. ACEI and ARBs are often used to lower blood pressure and control proteinuria. Diuretics are often used to increase urine output so as to relieve edema.

This kind of treatment can quickly control the symptoms, but you can not stop the medicine suddenly. Because when the medicine stops suddenly, Nephrotic Syndrome comes back again. Sometimes it recurs when you reduce the dosage of medicine. But it does not mean you have to use medicine till end of your life.

Systemic treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

Nephrotic Syndrome is associated with immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. A systemic treatment consisted of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang and decoction can decompose immune complexes and discharge them from the blood. They can also draw out toxins from the blood to reduce their damaged to the kidneys. Besides, they can improve blood circulation to help kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, your medical condition can be improved a lot and then you can gradually reduce the use of medicine until it stops. But if you have entered ESRD, systemic treatment can not be stopped.

Besides medical treatment, you should live a healthy lifestyle, which includes many aspects, such as renal-friendly diet, moderate exercise, positive attitude, good rest, etc. They can help you consolidate the curative effect.

Whether you should use medicine till end of your life with Nephrotic Syndrome depends on your medical condition. If you would like to know more information, please send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. Our doctors will give you an accurate answer.
