Treatment for Kidney Failure Caused by Nephrotic Syndrome

Treatment for Kidney Failure Caused by Nephrotic SyndromeWhen it comes to kidney failure, dialysis and kidney transplant are the two life-sustaining methods that we need to mention. They are very helpful, but they are not the only two treatment options for these with kidney failure caused by Nephrotic Syndrome.

Dialysis for kidney failure caused by Nephrotic Syndrome

Dialysis is a treatment that does some of the things done by healthy kidney, so when kidneys shut down, dialysis is suggested. Once Nephrotic Syndrome patients start dialysis, they need to do it regularly, as the treatment effect of dialysis is temporary. Also, as dialysis can not repair kidney damages and improve kidney function, so kidney failure can not be cured after doing dialysis. What is worse, with the duration of dialysis, patients’ survival rate decreases severely.

Kidney transplant for Nephrotic Syndrome

Kidney transplant is a medical procedure in which a healthy kidney is put into patient’s body to replace the failed one to kidney. It is a way for patients to live far away from kidney failure and dialysis, but in some cases, kidney problem comes back after the surgery. Also, after the surgery, patients need to take immunosuppressive agents the rest of their life to suppress rejection reaction. Besides, it is really hard to find a matched kidney in the limited time.

Alternative treatment for kidney failure caused by Nephrotic Syndrome

Blood pollution therapy is another treatment that can be applied by patients with kidney failure caused by Nephrotic Syndrome. It is a totally different treatment from dialysis and kidney transplant, as it works by treating damaged kidney, not replace the damaged kidney with a healthy one or a machine that can do things done by the kidney.

In blood pollution therapy, different methods are combined to purify blood and recover the clotting mechanism and haematogenous mechanism of blood, which is very helpful for kidney tissues to get necessary nutrition from blood. After that, some elements are added to the blood to keep blood function well. The last step of blood pollution therapy is rebuild of kidney function. In normal cases, kidney helps us filter blood and meanwhile get necessary nutrition from blood. When blood pollution condition is treated well, some kidney tissues get recovery through its self-curative ability. In this way, kidney function can be finally improved.

Lastly, blood pollution therapy is a treatment option for patients with kidney failure caused by Nephrotic Syndrome, but it is only available for these who still have urine output. Therefore, if you are such a patient, please seize your last chance to avoid or get off dialysis.
