A Cold May Be A Trigger of Nephrotic Syndrome

A Cold May Be A Trigger of Nephrotic SyndromeMany people may consider a cold as an aliment, but if you take it lightly, it may be a trigger of Nephrotic Syndrome. Nephrotic Syndrome has a high morbidity in children, because the immunity of children is very low, which allows bacteria and virus to invade into body easily. Now let’s have a look at Li Me’s story.

Brief introduction of Li Me

Li Me is a 8 years old girl. Because of poor immunity, she got a cold and fever frequently. But after treatment and rest, she recovered soon. 2 years ago, she caught a cold again. But at this time, she had facial swelling and she felt very weak. After examination in local hospital, she was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome.

Treatment in local hospital

Cyclosporin 5 mg/(kg·d), hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg, 3 times a day and some steroids. When her state of illness was stabilized, she went back home. Because she did not pay enough attention to renal-friendly diet and regular medication intake, her swelling appeared again after getting a cold. This time her parents took her to another hospital. With steroids and western medicine, her Nephrotic Syndrome was brought under controlled. But in November the same year, Nephrotic Syndrome came back again. This time Li Me’s condition became worse. She did not only have swelling, but also had high blood pressure and temporarily blinded. Therefore, her parents took her to hospital again.

Treatment in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital

Once by a chance, their parents encountered Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital. After chatting with our online doctor, they took Li Me to receive treatment.

Symptoms before treatment: urine protein 3+, 24 h urine protein 2.08 g/L, blood pressure 180/120 mmHg, slight cold, swelling in face and stomach

According to her medical condition, our nephrologists made a reasonable treatment for Li Me.

-In diet, she should limit the intake of fluid and salt, ensure enough calory intake.

-Control her cold in case that infections worsens her condition further.

-Use steroids, diuretics and hypotensive drugs to lower blood pressure and alleviate swelling.

-Use Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to help western medicine become fully effective. It can also consolidate therapeutic effects.

After 3 days’ treatment, her temperature was normalized to 36.7 and her blood pressure decreased to 100/80 mmHg. And she felt energetic. After a week’s treatment, she gradually stopped the intake of steroids. After 20 days’ treatment, 24 h urine protein become 0.25 g and swelling disappeared gradually. One month later, all her symptoms disappeared and she went back home. But she often came back to do test regularly. Now her Nephrotic Syndrome is totally under controlled.
