Steroid Treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

Steroid Treatment for Nephrotic SyndromeSteroids are widely applied into Nephrotic Syndrome treatment. It can relieve body malaise to certain extent and achieve a good therapeutic effect in short term. Every coin has two sides. Steroids are no exception. Using steroids without control can bring you many severe side effects. Now let’s have a look.

-Long-term steroid beyond physical dosage can cause metabolic disorders of fluid, sodium, sugar, protein and fat. It can also cause adrenocorticomimetic hyperfunction, which is presented at central obesity and calcium absorption problems. In severe case, it can give rise to spontaneous fracture.

-Steroids can weaken your immune system so as to expose you to many other diseases, such as infections. Infections can speed up kidney failure.

-Steroids can promote the degradation of protein and slow down the formation of granulation tissue, which is not beneficial for the recovery of cut or ulcer.

-Steroids can counteract the effect of growth hormone, so if used for long-term, it can inhibit the growth of bones and the synthesis of protein so as to affect the growth and development of children. If used by pregnant woman, it can cause fetal malformation.

-For some Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they have to use steroids for long-term to control their symptoms. In such case, if they reduce the dosage or stop the use of medicine suddenly, those symptoms will come back again and they will become more severe. Besides, some other symptoms you do not suffer from before will appear, such as joint pains, myalgia, etc.

All in all, steroids can only help you control symptoms, which do not solve the problems from the root. If you want to have a good control of Nephrotic Syndrome, you had better choose some natural treatment, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment.
