What to Do with Steroid Dependent Nephrotic Syndrome

What to Do with Steroid Dependent Nephrotic SyndromeMany Nephrotic Syndrome patients have to depend on steroids to control proteinuria, swelling and some other symptoms. But long-term steroid use has many side effects and it is not good for you to preserve kidney function. Now let’s have a look at how Chen Mei fights against steroid dependent Nephrotic Syndrome.

Brief introduction to Chen Mei’s medical condition.

In October 2009, she looked pale and there was swelling in her eyelid. In the beginning, she took them lightly and contributed them to fatigue. But after a period of time, her legs became swelling as well. At this time, she went to hospital to have a check. And then she was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome.

Treatment she received before coming to our hospital

She received steroid treatment under the instruction of doctor. After a period of treatment, swelling and proteinuria disappear. And then she went back home and kept steroid treatment at home. But when she tapered prednisone to 3 tablets, her legs swelled again. And proteinuria occurred again. In such case, she had to increase steroids into 10 tablets again. From then on, as long as she decreased the intake of steroids, Nephrotic Syndrome came back.

Treatment she received in our hospital

After coming to our hospital, our doctors had a comprehensive examination to her medical condition and then found out that her Nephrotic Syndrome is caused by glomerular cell disease and it was the waste products in the blood that impaired her inherent immune system so that her immune system can not fight against the invading bacteria and virus. During this course, immune complexes are produced and deposit in the glomerular cells, leading to protein leakage. Steroid can eliminate inflammation so as to stop protein leakage, but it is temporary. If you want to control Nephrotic Syndrome, you should cleanse those immune complexes from the blood and strengthen immune system so as to repair the damaged glomerular cells. Only in this way can Nephrotic Syndrome be controlled from the root. Our characteristic treatment is combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine, especially 4M treatment (MIcro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and Medical Soup).

Now Chen Mei leads a normal life and has stopped the use of steroids thoroughly. Though sometimes she has fever, cold and some other infections, her Nephrotic Syndrome does not relapse any more.
