Why Does Prednisone Help Nephrotic Syndrome

Why Does Prednisone Help Nephrotic SyndromePrednisone is a common used medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. For some patients, it really helps a lot. Why does prednisone help Nephrotic Syndrome? Now let’s have a look in the following article. You can also get the answer from online doctor. All of our online service is free.

First, we should know how does Nephrotic Syndrome occur.

Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder that causes your glomeruli to leak protein. It is also an autoimmune disease. Due to some reasons such as cold weather and overwork, your immunity becomes low so that bacteria and virus invade into your body easily. In order to resist them, your body will produce massive antibodies to combine them and reduce their toxicity. During this course, immune complexes come into being. With blood circulation, they come into kidneys. If your kidneys are not strong enough to cleanse them, immune complexes deposit in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation. Inflammation increases the permeability of capillaries so that protein which should be retained in the blood leaks into the urine.

How does prednisone help Nephrotic Syndrome?

Prednisone can inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to prevent protein leakage, while immune complexes are still in the glomeruli to impair your kidney function. That is why many Nephrotic Syndrome patients develop kidney failure several years later even though their symptoms are under controlled.

Alternatives to prednisone for Nephrotic Syndrome

If you really want to have a good control of Nephrotic Syndrome, you should cleanse immune complexes from the blood and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that your kidneys do not cause inflammation even if there are immune complexes in the kidneys. Immunotherapy can help you achieve all the goals. What is the most important, it can improve your kidney function.
