Nephrotic Syndrome: Is It Possible that Protein in Urine Goes up due to Ear Infection

Question: Hi! I have a question, my son has a Nephrotic Syndrome so he’s taking prednisone. He was negative for protein in his urine test for a month. Then today he’s 3+. He got sick couple of days ago, ear infection, so he has to take antibiotics now. Is it possible that his protein went up due to ear infection?

Nephrotic Syndrome: Is It Possible that Protein in Urine Goes up due to Ear InfectionAnswer: Hi, friend. I am glad to help you exclude the difficulty and anxiety. Nephrotic Syndrome is a collection of proteinuria, swelling, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. In most cases, Nephritic Syndrome can be brought under control with prednisone and some other immunosuppressant, but under some inducement, it relapses frequently. Infection is the most common cause.

Nephrotic Syndrome is usually caused by immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. They cause kidney inflammation and increase the permeability of capillaries so that protein goes out of the body. Steroids and immunosuppressants can block kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to stop protein leaking into urine, but they can not remove immune complexes from the kidneys. When patients have ear infections or some other infections, a lot of immune complexes come into being. They will trigger the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys again.

Therefore, to prevent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome, you should take treatment to remove immune complexes. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup) can decompose the deposited immune complexes to reduce kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. They can also set up a good blood environment and provide the damaged kidneys with the essential nutrients to speed up recovery. Besides, they can make your whole body harmonious and balanced so as to reduce the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.

It is possible that protein in urine goes up due to ear infection. Therefore, in the daily, you should take good care of your son to prevent infections.
