Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Lead a Normal Life

Question: My 5 years old son is suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome. He relapsed after the first course of steroids in exactly one month. He is on steroid again and now in remission. Can he lead a normal life?

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Lead a Normal LifeAnswer: It is possible for your child to lead a normal life, if he receives treatment as early as possible and prevent frequent relapse. Now let's have a quick look.

Why your child suffers from frequent relapse?

Child usually has a weakened immune system. When bacteria and virus invade into body, the body will produce a lot of antibodies to fight against these antigens. During this course, immune complexes come into being. With blood circulation, the immune complexes may be around the whole body. When they reach kidneys, they may deposit in kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation. If the glomeruli is severe impaired, massive protein may leak out, causing proteinuria. There may be other symptoms, such as edema and hypoproteinemia. If so, that is Nephrotic Syndrome. Steroids can restrain kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to relieve proteinuria. But as long as bacteria and virus invade into body again, immune complexes are produced again. When coming into the kidneys, the inflammatory reaction may be triggered again by the immune complexes. That is why Nephrotic Syndrome often relapses. Frequent relapse may give rise to kidney function impairment.

How to help the child lead a normal life?

If you want to lead a normal life, steroids are not enough. The child needs systemic treatment to remove the immune complexes from the kidneys. So far the western medicine can not reach this goal. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and medicated soup. They can dilate blood vessels and speed up the blood circulation to increase blood flow into the kidneys. This can reduce the deposition of immune complexes. And the deposited immune complexes can also be taken away from the kidneys with increased blood flow. And then the relapse will be reduced.

With the above systemic treatment, your child can lead a normal life without worrying about relapse. If you have any question about our treatment, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
