How Does Cellcept Work for Nephrotic Syndrome

How Does Cellcept Work for Nephrotic SyndromeHow does cellcept work for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? Cellcept, with brand name mycophenolate mofetil, is an oral medicine that is commonly used by patients who have done organ transplantation. Sometimes, it is also prescribed to treat Nephrotic Syndrome in medicine. Nephrotic Syndrome is an illness that can cause progressive loss of kidney function. Well then, why is cellcept used to treat Nephrotic Syndrome? How does it work for these patients?

The most commonly used medicines in Nephrotic Syndrome include prednisone and cyclophosphamide which are can help to bring illness under control. For these who receive less treatment effects with medicines we mentioned just now, cellcept will be prescribed to help them protect kidney. It works effective in treating Nephrotic Syndrome, but unfortunately, long-term usage of them will cause many terrible side effects like chest pain, blurred vision, bloody urine, confusion and retardation of physical development and mental development for kids. For this reason, the usage of this medicine is always under doctor’s direction.

In Nephrotic Syndrome, cellcept works by acting on immune system. In many cases of Nephrotic Syndrome, kidney tissues are injured due to severe inflammation which is the body’s attempt at self-protecting. And it usually appears to remove harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants and pathogens. Cellcept shows obvious effects in inhibiting inflammation, so with the help of this medicine, further kidney damages can be avoided.

Besides, although cellcept is helpful for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, but no one wants to take it as a long-term solution due to its terrible side effects. Cellcept is helpful, but it can not remove harmful substances away from kidney, so when patients stop taking medicine or reduce medicine dose, illness relapses. Additional, cellcept is just a way to bring Nephrotic Syndrome under control, it is not the only treatment option. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a treatment that can be applied in medicine to deal with Nephrotic Syndrome. Although it works slower, it can remove harmful substances away from kidney and prevent inflammation from the root. With this treatment, relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome can be prevented and what is more, it is much safer and causes no side effects during the whole treatment process.
