Precautions to Be Taken to Prevent Nephrotic Syndrome Relapse

Question: My child suffers from Nephrotic Syndrome, but his symptoms have been controlled with medications like steroids. I know Nephrotic Syndrome relapses frequently. Please suggest me precautions to be taken so that the disease does not come back.

Precautions to Be Taken to Prevent Nephrotic Syndrome RelapseAnswer: It is indeed true that Nephrotic Syndrome comes back frequently. The cause of this condition in children is largely unknown, but it may sometimes be preceded by viral infection, allergic reactions, or recent immunizations. When bacteria or virus invades into the body, your body will produce a lot of antibodies to fight against them. During this process, massive immune complexes come into being and enter into the blood stream. With blood circulation, they come into the kidneys and may deposit in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation. Steroids can inhibit kidney inflammation temporarily, but if you use them for long term, they will cause side effects and lower immunity. When you get cold or infection, more immune complexes will be produced and then the inflammatory reaction will be triggered again.

What precautions you should take is to improve immune system to protect yourself from cold and infection. Doing exercise is good for health, but you should avoid strenuous exercise. Besides, supplementing vitamin C can neutralize free radicals in the body and boost immune system. Fresh vegetables and fruits are packed with rich vitamins. Moreover, you had better avoid overwork, because it can lower immunity.

If you want to prevent Nephrotic Syndrome relapse, you should remove the immune complexes. In our kidney disease hospital, we often adopt systemic treatment, which may include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, foot bath, Mai Kang mixture, medicated soup and some other therapies. They can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase the blood flow into the kidneys, which helps the elimination of immune complexes from the blood. Seven days later, you will find that there is floccule in the urine. These are immune complexes. And you will find that your cold limbs become warm, poor appetite improves and your immune system is also strengthened. In this way, you can live a normal life. For more information, please contact online doctor.

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.
