Is Steroid Inevitable to Treat Nephrotic Syndrome

2012-12-05 10:41

Steroid Treat Nephrotic Syndrome“Love & hate” is the attitude of many Nephrotic Syndrome Patients to the steroid, because on the one hand steroid can help to treat their proteinuria in a short time, but on the other hand using steroid can cause many side effects and the disappeared proteinuria is very easy to recur. Therefore, they want to know whether steroid is inevitable to treat Nephritis Syndrome.

Of course, the answer is “Not”. Hormone can help Nephrotic Syndrome patients to control their disease temporarily, but the kidney disease caused by glomerulus damage is not remitted. If the person wants to get rid of their disease completely, he must accept a kind of medicine or treatment which has positive effects but no side effects of steroid. From the root cause of Nephrotic Syndrome namely blocking the progression of glomerulus damage and protecting kidney function, the patients can get rid of the dependency of steroid. Two steps of Immunotherapy called immune block and immune protection may be helpful for them.

To recover the kidney function, blocking the progression of glomerulus damage is necessary. Immune block using some immunosuppressant which has fewer side effects can block kidney fibrosis and control Nephrotic Syndrome patients’ condition. When patients’ condition is remitted, protecting the remaining kidney tissues should put on the agenda. Immune protection with some herbal medicines can just help to keep the remaining kidney tissues safe. As we all know Chinese medicine usually has fewer side effects than western medicines. With these two steps, Immunotherapy becomes another treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

Above all, we can say steroid can be evitable to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. These patients can also live much healthier but don’t need to depend on steroid. From now on, Nephrotic Syndrome patients can say goodbye to steroid.
