Is Buchu the Right Herb for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Is Buchu the Right Herb for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsBuchu is a plant, whose leaf is often used to make medicine. Is buchu the right herb for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? Now let’s have a quick look.

Buchu is diuretic.

Nephrotic Syndrome is caused by damage to the glomeruli, allowing large amounts of protein to leak from your blood into your urine. This can decrease plasma colloid osmotic pressure. And then fluid flows into the tissue space, leading to edema. In the early stage of Nephrotic Syndrome, edema may just appear around your eyes. With the progression of Nephrotic Syndrome, it may appear in legs, ankles or even the whole body.

Buchu is a natural diuretic, which can help you flush out the excessive water from your body so as to relieve edema. It is also used in combination with other herbs such as corn silk, juniper and uva ursi.

Buchu is anti-infection.

Infection can add insult to injury, speeding up kidney failure. Besides, it can trigger the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. Buchu has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which prevent you from infection.


Buchu can cause stomach and kidney irritation. Besides, medications that slow blood clotting interacts with buchu. Therefore, you had better take buchu under the instruction of your doctor.

Just controlling edema is not enough for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. You should also reduce protein leakage. In such cause, steroids and immunosuppressants can help you. The fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can remove inflammatory factors from the blood to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also expand blood vessels and block blood clotting to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. Moreover, it can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. With Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, you can live a normal life with Nephrotic Syndrome.
