Chinese Herbal Medicines Help Treat Nephrotic SyndromeWith the symptoms of heavy proteinuria, edema, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia, Nephrotic Syndrome is a systemic kidney disease. Generally, it is usually caused by the kidney disease, and in rare cases it is caused by other diseases such as SLE. If left untreated, it may develop kidney failure. According to some experts, Chinese herbal medicines help treat Nephrotic Syndrome. Is it really? How does it play its role? To know the answer, we must first know the causes of this disease.

What is the cause of Nephrotic Syndrome?

The occurrence of Nephrotic Syndrome is due to the kidney damage. Usually, some immune complexes depositing in the kidney or some inflammatory reactions will impair the kidney function. Over time, the filtration function of glomeruli will be damaged, and as a result heavy proteinuria and erythrocyte will leak out of the kidney. Proteinuria in turns can aggravate Nephrotic Syndrome. If left untreated, it is more likely to develop renal failure. According to the causes, some Chinese herbal medicines help treat Nephrotic Syndrome.

How do these medicines play their role?

The first step is to clean those immune complexes or block the inflammatory reactions to avoid further kidney damage. Some blood purifications are needed to assist the herbal treatment, if the person’s disease is caused by immune complexes, while some immunosuppressive agents should be used if it is caused by the inflammatory reactions. In this step, Chinese herbal medicines help regulate the whole immune system and build his bone. With a normal immune system, the person can accept the following treatment more successfully.

The second step is to repair the damaged kidney function. As we all know, there is no specific treatment in the western medicine to repair the impaired kidney function, so more and more experts pay their attention to the herbal medicines. After a period of research, they have found some medicines can help repair damaged kidney function. The coordination of oral and external Chinese herbal medicines helps treat Nephrotic Syndrome with medicated bath or some other methods.
