How to Deal with Constant Cramps and Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: My 12 year old son is diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. He started a course of prednisolone treatment but has constant cramps. How to deal with constant cramps and Nephrotic Syndrome?

How to Deal with Constant Cramps and Nephrotic Syndrome

Answer: Constant cramps is a common complaint of kidney patients. Many factors can cause cramps. But they can classified into two categories. One is associated with declined kidney function and the other is related with the medicine you take. Now let’s have a quick look at them.

-When your kidneys do not function well, they can not balance electrolytes in the blood. Low blood calcium and magnesium may increase the excitability of leg muscles, leading to cramps.

-Acidic materials building up in the muscles can also contribute to constant cramps.

-Prednisolone is a kind of steroids often used to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. For some patients, this kind of medicine can help you control the symptoms, but in the long run it has many side effects. Constant cramps is a common side effect.

From what you described, I can hardly tell which one is the main causes of constant cramps for your son. But we should improve his kidney function and avoid the side effects of steroids. For child patients, natural remedies are much better. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and Medicated Soup are often used together to make the body harmonious and balanced so as to prevent relapse.

This set of treatment plan can dilate blood vessels, speed up blood circulation and remove stasis so as to increase the blood flow into the kidneys,which can help the elimination of immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. And then the kidney inflammation can be alleviated. Besides, they can provide the essential substances, such as amino acids, vitamins and trace elements, to activate DNA in the damaged cells and help them recover. With the improvement of kidney function, constant cramps can be eased.

Because all the medicines used in these therapies are herbs, they seldom have side effects if you use them under the instruction of doctor. For more information about our treatment, please leave a message or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
