Is There Any Successful Treatment for Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: My daughter is suffering form Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome since January 2011. Her age is 13 years old. She was steroid resistant and was on tacrolimus and on renitec since 2 years. Now her serum creatinine level starts increasing and becomes 1.3. Doctors stopped her tacrolimus and she is only taking blood pressure lowering medicine nowadays. How to lower creatinine? Is there any successful treatment for Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome?
Is There Any Successful Treatment for Minimal Change Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: Minimal Change Disease is the most common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in children. It causes about 80 % of cases in young children. It can be cured in most children with corticosteroids. But you say that she was steroid resistant, so other drugs are chosen. Tacrolimus is a kind of immunosuppressants to inhibit immune system, and renitec is a kind of ACE inhibitors to lower high blood pressure. They have effect on controlling symptoms, but it seems that they do not stop the progression to kidney failure.

For healthy children, serum creatinine ranges from 0.3 to 0.7 mg/dL. Creatinine 1.3 is almost twice the normal level, which means there is kidney function impairment for your daughter. Because some of the kidney tissues are dead, no treatment can bring the dead back to life, but appropriate treatment can repair the injured renal cells and protect the intact renal cells. Here we recommend some natural remedies to help your daughter regain kidney function as much as possible.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy makes use of osmosis devices to penetrate the active ingredient of Chinese medicine into the kidneys. Because the medicine can reach the focus directly, they can play their role in treating kidney disease more quickly. This therapy can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to improve blood circulation in the kidneys so that the injured cells can get enough nutrients and oxygen. It can also eliminate inflammatory factors and immune complexes from the blood to protect the renal cells from being damaged. Moreover, it can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. There are also some adjunctive therapies, such as Medicated Bath, Moxibustion, etc.

With systemic treatment, not only does kidney function improve, but also the whole physical condition can be balanced. As a result, your daughter can keep dialysis and kidney transplant away and live a normal and happy life.

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.
