What Is Cellcept Used For In Nephrotic Syndrome

What Is Cellcept Used For In Nephrotic SyndromeCellcept is an immunosuppressant which is sometimes prescribed for people with frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. As it restrains immune system and lower immunity, so people who take this medicine run high risk for infection and some other problems. Well, what is cellcept used for in Nephrotic Syndrome.

Nephrotic Syndrome is not a specific illness,but a group of clinical manifestations which appear as a result of kidney damage. These clinical manifestations include severe proteinuria, swelling, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipidaemia. Although they are resulted from impaired kidney function, if not brought under control, they will in turn damage kidney.

In Nephrotic Syndrome, kidneys fail to preserve protein in urine because glomerular filtration membrane is damaged by persistent inflammation reaction which is an immune response triggered by damage to living tissues. Cellcept is applied to treat Nephrotic Syndrome because it can lower body’s immune system and restrain inflammation in kidney. In this way, further kidney damages can be avoided temporarily. Cellcept is very effective in bringing Nephrotic Syndrome under control, but as it can not remove the cause of inflammation in kidney, illness relapses easily when patients stop taking this medicine or when they reduce medicine dose.

Besides, short-term usage of cellcept is very helpful, but it is used for a long time, patients will experience lots of side effects like abdominal pain, black stools, bladder pain, hair loss, blurred vision, bleeding gums, chest pain, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, trembling, seizure and even developmental retardation in kids.

Due to its terrible side effects, cellcept is used temporarily to bring illness under control in our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease. When illness condition becomes stable, Chinese medicine treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Foot Bath, Circle Therapy are used to help patients promote renal blood circulation, increase bloodstream in kidney, repair kidney damages and strengthen residual kidney tissues. By making full use of Chinese medicine and western medicine as well as combining them properly, Nephrotic Syndrome can be controlled well and also the long-term requirement of cellcept can be avoided successfully.
