Is Baking Soda Helpful for Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: I have Nephrotic Syndrome. I currently taking prednisone 10 ml. My sister in law told me about the baking soda therapy. Would you be able to enlighten me more on this?

Is Baking Soda Helpful for Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: Baking soda is also known as sodium bicarbonate in our daily life. It is a common ingredient in quick breads, cakes and cookies, but apart from diet, it also can be used to help kidney disease patients, including people with Nephrotic Syndrome.

According to doctors in the Royal London Hospital in England, usage of baking soda significantly slow down illness progress and the rate of kidney function decline is about two-thirds slower. On the basis of this, we can know that with baking soda, Nephrotic Syndrome patients can put off kidney failure and dialysis successfully. But unfortunately, they can not get a cure from baking soda.

Nephrotic Syndrome is an illness marked by increase of permeability of glomerular filtration membrane which is in charge of filtering blood and preserving nutrition. When an individual is diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, large amounts of protein will leak into urine, which can cause many other health tissues. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, treatment must be start from repairing glomerular filtration membrane, because only in this way, can problem be solved fundamentally. Baking soda is helpful, but it can not repair kidney damages on glomerular filtration membrane, so Nephrotic Syndrome patients can not get a cure from it.

Lastly, in early stage of Nephrotic Syndrome, kidney is affected mildly, and in such a case, mildly damaged kidney can be treated well. However, with the deterioration of illness, some kidney tissues will be necrotic. These necrotic one can not be revived according to current medical technologies, so Nephrotic Syndrome in advanced stage can not be cured at all. For this reason, Nephrotic Syndrome should take treatment as soon as possible after the diagnosis, so as to prevent further deterioration and health tissues.

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.
