Is Temporary Hemodialysis Possible for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients to Treat Edema

Question: I have Nephrotic Syndrome with severe edema. I can not control the edema even with diet and lasix. And I also have a lot of proteinuria, but steroid pulse therapy did not work. Any advice please. Is temporary hemodialysis possible to treat my edema?

Is Temporary Hemodialysis Possible for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients to Treat EdemaAnswer: Severe edema and proteinuria are the most common symptoms for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Severe edema is associated with proteinuria. Too much protein leaks from the blood, resulting in the decline of plasma colloid osmotic pressure. And then the fluid flows into the tissue space, leading to edema. In addition, edema may be related with kidney function impairment. The damaged kidneys can not remove the excess fluid from the body and then sodium and water retain.

To treat edema, you should reduce proteinuria. Steroids are the most common used medications to inhibit kidney inflammation so as to reduce proteinuria. But as you said you are resistant to steroids. Diet and diuretics also have no effect. Thereby you have to try other ways. Hemodialysis can take over part of your kidney function to take away the excess fluid from your body. But this can not solve the problem from the root. Once you stop dialysis, water retention will occur again. The best way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function so as to reduce protein leakage and ease edema.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can remove the immune complexes and diseased tissues from the basement membrane and activate DNA duplication in the injured cells so as to promote the structural changes of the damaged kidneys and restore kidney function. Besides, it can inhibit kidney inflammation, improve blood circulation and stop kidney fibrosis, which are also good for kidney self-healing. With systemic treatment, it is possible for you to recover from Nephrotic Syndrome.
