How to Be Healthy Without Steroids for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

How to Be Healthy Without Steroids for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsNephrotic Syndrome patients sometimes may have to live on steroids to control their symptoms. As long as they stop the medicine or reduce their dosage, proteinuria and other symptoms associated with Nephrotic Syndrome will appear again. In the short-term, steroids is really beneficial. But in the long run, steroids have a lot of side effects such as weight gain. How to be healthy without steroids for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

Let’s see why Nephrotic Syndrome often relapses.

Steroids is just to inhibit inflammatory reaction rather than eliminate the immune complexes which can cause inflammation. Once you catch cold or infection, the body will produce a lot of antibody to fight against the invaders. During this process, massive immune complexes will be produced. With blood circulation, they come into the kidneys, which may activate the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys again, leading to the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Natural therapies for Nephrotic Syndrome patients

If you really want to be healthy without steroids, you should remove the immune complexes from the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction are often used. They can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase the blood flow into the kidneys, which can reduce the deposition of immune complexes. Besides, they can draw out toxins from the blood to reduce their damage to the kidneys. After 3-5 day’s treatment, you will find that there are flocs in the urine, which indicates that immune complexes are discharged out of body. You will also find that appetite improves, cold limbs become warm, fatigue goes away, etc. All of the indicators of kidney function will have an improvement.
