Why Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome Are Prone to Infection

Why Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome Are Prone to InfectionFrequent infections increase your risk of Nephrotic Syndrome. And with Nephrotic Syndrome, it is likely for you to suffer from frequent infections. Why patients with Nephrotic Syndrome are prone to infection? Go on reading to learn more information.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients usually have a weak immune system.

A weak immune system can not resist the invading bacteria and virus, so it is prone for them to having infection. As we all know, Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by swelling and massive proteinuria. In order to reduce protein leakage and relieve swelling, steroids and other immunosuppressants are often used. They can help you control symptoms, but they also have many side effects, one of which is to weaken your immune system and expose you to various aliments, including infection.

Infection can add insult to injury for Nephrotic Syndrome.

When you get infection, your body produces a lot of antibodies to fight against the bacteria and virus. During this course, massive immune complexes are produced. With blood circulation, they flow into your kidneys, which can trigger the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys. And then proteinuria and swelling will come back again.

How to reduce the chance of infection for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

To reduce the chance of infection, you should strengthen your immune system. After years of research and clinical practice, we find that Chinese medicine can counteract the side effects of western medicine. In Chinese medicine, there are many therapies to help you, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup. They can decompose the immune complexes to reduce kidney inflammation. They can draw out toxins from your body to reduce their damage to your kidneys. They can also improve blood circulation, remove stasis, lower blood pressure, decrease blood cholesterol level, etc. Besides, they can strengthen your immune system. After a period of treatment, your Nephrotic Syndrome can be brought under control. With the improvement of immunity, infections reduce and relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome reduces as well.
