Are Prednisone Applicable to Treat Nephrotic Syndrome

Are Prednisone Applicable to Treat Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder in which your kidneys become leaky due to inflammation so that protein which should be retained in the body goes out of the body. Prednisone is often used as an anti-inflammatory drug. Are prednisone applicable to treat Nephrotic Syndrome?

In short term, you can use prednisone for Nephrotic Syndrome.

As a matter as fact, prednisone is the most common used drug for Nephrotic Syndrome. Proteinuria is a bad factor that can affect the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome. Prednisone can block kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries to reduce protein leakage. But it has many side effects in the long run, such as headache, bone loss, weight gain, moon face, etc.

In long term, you had better use some natural treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome.

When your Nephrotic Syndrome is stabilized, you can use some natural treatment to consolidate the therapeutic effect. In China, we often use Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. In TCM, there are many therapies to help you, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup. They can decompose the immune complexes deposited in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. They can also expand blood vessels to lower blood pressure and increase blood flow into kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. Besides, they can speed up blood circulation to remove stasis. After a period of treatment, the damaged kidneys can repair themselves and then symptoms associated with Nephrotic Syndrome will disappear. What is the most important, TCM can make your whole body balanced and harmonious so that Nephrotic Syndrome does not relapse frequently.
