Should I Start Taking Ciclosporine with Protein in Urine 3+ Again and Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: I am an adult diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome in 2004. I have had 3 relapses since then but have been free from it since 2007. Today I realized that my urine is a little foamy and did the home test which showed 3+. I have some ciclosporine with me and wonder if I should start taking it.

Should I Start Taking Ciclosporine with Protein in Urine 3+ Again and Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: From what you said, we can see that your Nephrotic Syndrome comes back again. A characteristic of Nephrotic Syndrome is its frequent relapse. Frequent relapse worsens your kidney disease and speed up kidney failure. Therefore, you should receive treatment as early as possible to reduce the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Ciclosporine is a common used medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to dampen the immune response and reduce protein leakage. It can help you eliminate the symptoms quickly, but it can not repair the damaged kidneys. Besides, this kind of medicine has many side effects, such as increase the risk of tumors, cancer, headache, etc. Improper use of ciclosporine may even cause kidney damage. Therefore, you had better not use ciclosporine without the guideline of doctor. If you can send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com, our doctors will help you make a suitable treatment plan.

Besides symptom management, you should consider repairing the damaged kidneys and improving kidney function so as to reduce relapse. Immunotherapy is a new treatment for kidney disease. It can cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys and block the abnormal inflammatory response in the kidneys so as to eliminate kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage. This therapy can also strengthen immune system and improve blood circulation to help kidney self-healing. When your kidney function improves, protein leakage stops and then you can live a normal life without worrying about kidney failure.

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.
