Treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome due to Diabetic Nephropathy

Treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome due to Diabetic NephropathyNephrotic Syndrome can be caused by primary renal disease or by a variety of secondary causes. It is said that 10 % Diabetic Nephropathy patients develop Nephrotic Syndrome in certain stage, which is characterized by urinary excretion of more than 3 g of protein per day, edema, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipemia. Now let’s have a look at treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome due to Diabetic Nephropathy.

Control blood sugar level

Your kidneys have to work hard to remove the excess sugar, which over time can cause damage to the filters. Since high blood sugar is the underlying cause of Nephrotic Syndrome, you should control blood sugar strictly. Generally, diet, weight control, exercise and medication can help you control blood sugar level well.

Reduce high blood pressure

Diabetic Nephropathy patients often have high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to further damage to the kidneys and it can also increase your risk of heart disease so as to threaten your life. ACEI, ARB, CCB and diuretics are often used to lower blood pressure. Besides, Chinese herbs like corn silk, hawthorn and semen cassiae can also reduce hypertension.

Follow a right diet

You should not only follow a diabetic diet, but also a renal-friendly diet. First, you should limit the intake of sugar. Second, you should reduce the intake of protein to reduce proteinuria and lower urea level. Fresh vegetables and fruits are good choice for you. Because of their high fiber content, they can help you control blood sugar level and lower cholesterol. Because of their high content of vitamins, they can strengthen your immunity to fight against disease.

Repair the damaged kidneys

When your blood sugar and blood pressure are under control, you should repair the damaged kidneys to improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. It can also inhibit the kidney inflammation because the active ingredients of Chinese herbs can eliminate the immune complexes from the blood. Moreover, this therapy can stop kidney fibrosis by degrading extracellular matrix. With Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, your damaged kidneys can regain part of function. Long-term treatment can help you avoid dialysis and kidney transplant.

Patients with Diabetic Nephropathy and Nephrotic Syndrome should receive treatment as early as possible, or it will quickly develop the end stage renal disease.
