Can Kidney Size Be Brought Back to Normal Size for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Question: My wife is a Nephrotic syndrome patient since 2003 and everything was going on normal and the serum creatinine level was under control. Now since January 2013 her serum creatinine level has been increased to 2.5 level and her kidney sizes have been reduced to 8.6 cm and 8.2 cm from 9.6 cm and 9.3 cm. in 2010. How to reduce the serum creatinine level and whether kidney size can be brought back to normal size?

Can Kidney Size Be Brought Back to Normal Size for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsAnswer: From what you said, we can see that her creatinine level keeps increasing and her kidney size becomes small, which indicates that her Nephrotic Syndrome is worsening. Because creatinine level usually does not increase until more than 50% kidney function has been lost. And shrunken kidneys usually result from ischemia and anoxia.

To reduce creatinine level and bring kidney size back to normal size, the fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.

First, we should find out what causes her Nephrotic Syndrome and then control those root cause.

Second, we should treat Nephrotic Syndrome from the blood. Creatinine 2.5 means there are a lot of waste products in the blood. If they are not be cleansed timely, they may cause further damage to the kidneys. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and decoction can draw out toxins from the blood to reduce their damage. They can also expand blood vessels and speed up blood circulation to remove stasis and increase blood flow into the kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. When getting enough blood, kidney size can be brought back to normal size. Moreover, they can decompose immune complexes deposited in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, your kidneys gradually regain their ability and then creatinine level decreases.

Can kidney size be brought back to normal size for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? Yes, it can. But early treatment is needed. Leave your basic medial condition below and then our doctors can give you more treatment suggestions according to your case.
