Alternative Therapy for Steroid-Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome

Alternative Therapy for Steroid-Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome“My son has Nephrotic Syndrome. He got his biopsy done and then knew he has steroid resistant MCD. Now I am looking for alternative therapy.” So far steroids may be the most effective treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome. But as we can see, for steroid-resistant patients, they have to find some alternative therapy to control the state of illness.

Causes of steroid-resistant Nephrotic Syndrome for MCD

In Minimal Change Disease (MCD) patients, steroid-resistant patients are only 5%. Some factors may affect the effect of steroids. For example, use insufficient dosage of steroids, reduce steroids or stop them without the instruction of doctor. Besides, severe edema may also affect the absorption of medicine. Therefore, when treating steroid-resistant MCD, we should take those factors into consideration.

Alternative therapy for steroid-resistant Nephrotic Syndrome

Though steroids are effect, they have many side effects if used for long-term, such as weight gain, headache, diabetes, bone disease, etc. For children, this kind of medicine may affect their growth. Therefore, no matter your child is steroid-resistant Nephrotic Syndrome or not, you had better choose some natural treatment for him.

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, their characteristic treatment is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In TCM, there are many kinds of therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Full Bath, Circle Therapy, Enema Therapy and Moxibustion. There are also oral Chinese medicine like Mai Kand and various decoction. Those TCM therapies do not cause any harm if taken in proper doses and under the guidance of the doctor. They can remove immune complexes from the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. They can also cleanse the blood and improve blood circulation to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, the damaged kidneys can be repaired and then protein leakage is stopped. In addition, TCM can make the whole body harmonious and balanced so as to reduce the frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.
