Why Nephrotic Syndrome Relapses Frequently By Hormone Treatment

Why Nephrotic Syndrome Relapses So Frequently By Hormone TreatmentIn clinic, hormone is commonly used to treat various kidney diseases, of course, it also plays a helpful role in treating Nephrotic Syndrome. However, not everyone responds to hormone very well, on the contrary, patients who have used it before always suffering from recurring Nephrotic Syndrome frequently. Well, why nephrotic syndrome relapses so frequently by hormone treatment? Now, follow us and try to find the answer.

Why nephrotic syndrome relapses so frequently by hormone treatment?

To answer this question, proteinuria is a main index to evaluate the treatment. In the treatment of proteinuria, as long as hormone treatment blocks the holes, can proteinuria be controlled very well. However, this goal is impossible to achieve because the injured renal tissues are not repaired by hormone treatment. Moreover, the hormone’s effect only can maintain a short period. Besides, hormone treatment has immunosuppressive effect, which means it can lower immunity and induce infection to nephrotic syndrome patients. As we all know that infection will cause relapse of nephrotic syndrome and worsen damage on kidneys easily, so hormone treatment is not the best choice.

Here, you may think of dialysis and kidney transplant, but we have to tell you that both the two treatments are not the best, the reasons are as follow:

1. Side effects

2. High costs

3. Can not treat nephrotic syndrome thoroughly

4. Difficult to implement, especially for kidney transplant

Is there other treatments for nephrotic syndrome effectively? Here, we are glad to tell you that Chinese herbal medicines bing a promising future for nephrotic syndrome patients. Chinese medicine treatment will decrease side effects of long-term use of hormones and improve immunity in the patients. Moreover, Chinese medicines directly function on damaged glomerular cells, through promoting blood circulation, resisting inflammation on kidneys and other functions, to repair damaged glomerular filtering cells and get rid of proteinuria effectively.

Finally, if you would like to know more details about the Chinese herbal medicines, please contact us freely, we will try our best to help you.

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.
