In this article, let’s have a look at one of our patients—Mr.Wu. Recently he stopped steroids totally and his Nephrotic Syndrome has not relapsed yet. do you want to know why? Go on reading to learn more his story.

Mr.Wu is 21 years old. In 2013, because of catching a cold, he had swelling in whole body. Test report showed his urine protein was 3+, occult blood was 2+, and 24h urine protein was 8.29g. He was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. After a period of hospitalization in the local, his condition was not improved at all. Under the guidance of other renal patients, he came to Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital for treatment. When he just arrived at our hospital, his urine protein was 4+, occult blood was 2+ and 24h urine protein was 11.8g. In our hospital, he received Chinese medicine treatment. After 25 days’ treatment, both his urine protein and occult blood turned negative, and his 24h urine protein reduced to 0.17g. Therefore, he took Chinese medicine home. From then on, every three months, he came back for an examination. Every time his test report came very good.

Mr.Zhang is his fellow. He is 24 years old. In 2010, he had leg swelling. Test report showed that his urine protein was 3+, 24h urine protein 4.85g, and he was also diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. After 4 months’ treatment, his urine protein was still 3+. Because of no improvement, he discharged from hospital.

Once in a while, he was added into a online group about kidney disease, in which some patients said Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital is very good, so he came here for a try.

When he came to our hospital, his urine protein was 3+ and 24h urine protein was 5.65g. He also had moon face, buffalo hump and abdominal skin purple stripes. With our medicated foot bath, hot compress and oral Chinese medicine for 22 days, all symptoms disappeared. When he did test again, urine protein turned negative. Therefore, he took medicine home happily, but it required him to come back for examination every 2 months.

When Mr.Wu did his 7 times examination and Mr.Zhang did his third time examination, they got to know each other. Both of them had a good control of their disease. Therefore, change their examination time into every three months. From then on they often came back together.

But this time they came back earlier. Do you know why? That is because of Mr.Wu., he has stopped Chinese medicine and western medicine totally, and his disease has not relapsed, so he returned to send a silk banner to his doctor. Mr.Zhang accompanied Mr.Wu to do it and he also wanted to stop the medicine to lead a normal life as well.

After examination, Mr.Zhang’s 24h urine protein was 0.06g. Though it was within the normal range, but from his whole physical condition, doctor suggested him take medicine continuously to reinforce the effect and gradually stop the medicine.
