Is It Effective to Take Medicine with Steroid to Treat Nephrotic Syndrome

Is It Effective to Take Medicine with Steroid to Treat Nephrotic SyndromeSteroid may be the most common used drugs for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. Is it really effective to take medicine with steroid to treatment Nephrotic Syndrome?

As a matter as fact, it depends on the medical condition of patients. Some patients respond very well to such medications so that Nephrotic Syndrome disappears after a period of treatment. Some patients are steroid-dependent, which means they have to take steroids for long-term to control the symptoms. While some other patients are steroid-resistant, which means steroids do not take effect on their medical condition. Therefore, it is difficult to say whether it is effective to take medicine with steroids or not to treat Nephrotic Syndrome.

Steroid treatment has another problem, that is, Nephrotic Syndrome easily comes back due to cold or infection. Besides, steroid can only be used for short-term, because long-term use of steroid can cause many side effects. In order to avoid frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome, we should not only control the symptoms, but also treat the kidneys from the root. Here we recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which can make your whole body balanced and harmonious. Space limited, so we can only introduce some of them.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an external therapy, which is to penetrate the micronized Chinese herbs into the kidneys through shen shu acupoints on the back by osmosis devices. Foot Bath is to immerse your feet into the mediated soup. Mai Kang is a Chinese patent medicine. They are often used together to improve blood circulation. They can also cleanse waste and immune complexes from the blood and then help the damaged kidneys to repair themselves. Moreover, they can stop kidney fibrosis and halt Nephrotic Syndrome from developing to kidney failure.

From the above, we can see that taking steroid is not enough to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. The combination of steroids and TCM can achieve a better curative effects. If you have any question, please feel free to ask the doctor online.

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.
