Extreme Fatigue while Taking Prednisone and Nephrotic Syndrome: How to Deal with It


Question: I have Nephrotic Syndrome. Now I am taking prednisone. I feel extreme fatigue while taking prednisone. How did you deal with it? Are there any ways to combat it? I feel like it's getting hard to even breath because of my exhaustion.

Extreme Fatigue while Taking Prednisone and Nephrotic Syndrome: How to Deal with ItAnswer: Prednisone is a common used drug for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to inhibit kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage. But as you mention, it causes extreme fatigue. It also causes many other side effects, such as weight gain, increased appetite, diabetes, bone disease, etc. Besides, Nephrotic Syndrome relapses easily under prednisone treatment. Though prednisone is effective in controlling your symptoms, it is not the only medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome. Now what you should do is to choose some alternative treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

It is a kind of Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy, which is to put herbal bags on the shenshu acupoints. With the help of osmotic devices, the active ingredients can be penetrated into the nidus. This therapy can suppress kidney inflammation. It can also dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidneys, which is good for kidney self-healing. Moreover, it supplements the essential nutrients to help kidney recovery.

Adjunctive treatment

In order to achieve a good curative effect, mediated bath, mai kang mixture and decoction are also used together. They can cleanse waste products from the blood, lower cholesterol level, reduce blood pressure and remove stasis to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing.

After a period of treatment, you will feel energetic. And the indicators of kidney function such as creatinine and GFR improve as well. A good kidney function can help you live a normal life.

Besides medical treatment, you can do some gentle exercise such as walking and jogging to strengthen your muscles and increase energy. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
