Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome Associated with MCD

Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome Associated with MCDPeople with MCD (Minimal Change Disease) often have the symptoms of Nephrotic Syndrome, namely massive proteinuria, edema, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. What is the treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome associated with MCD?

No treatment

For some people, MCD can have spontaneous remission. But it is very rare, so when you are diagnosed with MCD, you had better receive treatment as early as possible, because persistent Nephrotic Syndrome causes significant morbidity and morality.

Corticosteroid for Nephrotic Syndrome associated with MCD

MCD has an excellent prognosis with corticosteroid therapy. It is said that over 85% to 90 % of cases have a complete remission of proteinuria. However, the problem is that relapse may occur frequently. But the risk of relapse decreases with time.

Natural therapies for Nephrotic Syndrome associated with MCD

There are still some patients who are steroid-resistant or steroid-dependent. For steroid-resistant patients, steroids do not take effect. For steroid-depend patients, once they stop or reduce the dosage of medicine, Nephrotic Syndrome comes back again. As we all know, long-term use of steroid has many side effects. For these two kinds of patients, we recommend the natural therapies. If your MCK relapse frequently, you can also adopt this treatment.

Traditional Chinese Medicine including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, medicated foot bath, Mai Kang and medicated soup. They can draw out toxins from the blood. They can also increase the blood flow into the kidneys so as to reduce the deposition of immune complexes in the kidneys. And then the kidney inflammation will gradually relieve. Steroids are just to inhibit the kidney inflammation, while the immune complexes are still there, so you easily have frequent relapse. With this treatment, you can get over Nephrotic Syndrome associated with MCD and live a normal life.

Moreover, they can invigorate qi and blood, activate meridians and pacify the five internal organs (heart, liver, kidney, lung and spleen). When your body is in a harmonious and balanced state, it can fight against all the diseases.

Though Nephrotic Syndrome associated with MCD is not so serious, you should also attach importance. Do not be the rare ones who develop renal impairment or acute kidney failure.
