Chinese Medicine And Western Medicine: Which One Is Better for Nephrotic Syndrome

Now let’s have a discussion on Chinese medicine and western medicine: which one is better for Nephrotic Syndrome.

Traditional Chinese Medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome

According to TCM theory, disease results from imbalance, so when treating disease, doctor usually help you restore the inner balance of your body. For Nephrotic Syndrome, we usually dilate blood vessels and speed up blood circulation to remove stasis so as to improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. We also decompose the immune complexes deposited in the kidneys and remove them out of the body to eliminate kidney inflammation. Moreover, we lower blood sugar, reduce blood pressure, control blood cholesterol level so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. But Chinese medicine usually takes effect so slowly that you have to stick to it for a long time. And it is difficult for you to find a very professional Chinese medicine doctor.

Western medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome

Western medicine may be the most popular treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome. It is to use steroids or immunosuppressants to decrease the permeability of renal cells so as to stop the leakage of protein. But those medicines usually have many side effects. And as long as you stop or tamper the use of steroids, it is likely for Nephrotic Syndrome to come back again and again.
