Why Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Can Not Stop Steroids Suddenly

Why Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Can Not Stop Steroids SuddenlyAs we all know, steroids are the common used drugs for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to control proteinuria. But ever coin has two sides. Steroids have many side effects if used for long-term. That is why some Nephrotic Syndrome patients want to stop the use of steroids when their symptoms fade away. Here I have to say that do not stop steroids suddenly without the instruction of doctor. Do you know why? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

-Increase your risk of Addisonian crisis

When you have taken steroids for a long time, your body stops producing its own steroid hormone. Sudden stop of steroids can make your body in sudden shortage of steroid hormones so as to cause an Addisonian crisis, which is dangerous. Therefore, steroid treatment is often reduced slowly to allow the adrenal glands to recover.

-Recall Nephrotic Syndrome

Steroids are to inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. Kidney inflammation is usually caused by immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. If you can not remove immune complexes from the kidneys, when you stop the use of steroids, kidney inflammation may become active again.

If you do not want to suffer from the side effects of steroids, you can use some other natural treatment to stabilize Nephrotic Syndrome when your Nephrotic Syndrome is under control. After years of research and clinical practice, our doctors find that Traditional Chinese Medicine can counteract the side effects of steroids and their combination can achieve a better therapeutic effect, because TCM can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and it can also provide the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients to speed up recovery. What is more, TCM can decompose the deposited immune complexes to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis.
