How does prednisone affect kidneys? Some kidney disease patients will be prescribed this medicine to control their illness condition. But is it safe for patients all the time? What should you pay attention to while taking it?
The benefits of prednisone for kidney disease patients.
Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that is particaularly effective as an immunosuppressant drug. Our healthy kidneys can filter out excess water, waste products as well as toxins from the blood in our body. However, when kidneys are injured due to inflammation, the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane will increase and some protein will leak into urine.
It is often a common drug for patients with kidney disease, which is used to decrease the inflammation in the kidneys and treat proteinuria. Because it can decrease the body’s immune response and help to block inflammation in kidney and reduce protein in urine. Therefore, it is helpful for kidney disease patients to control and improve their illness condition.
This western medicine is helpful in treating kidney disease, but long-term taking of prednisone will cause a series of side effects or discomforts such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, heartburn, trouble sleeping, dizziness and so on.
According to the above analysis, what I want to emphasize is as following:
You should take this medication under your doctor’s guidance, and the dosage should be based on your medical condition, weight, response to therapy, and side effects you experience. In addition, if you have diabetes, you are recommended to monitor you blood sugar because this medicine is easy to cause high blood sugar which is dangerous for kidney disease patients.
Compared to western drugs, I prefer recommending some natural ways like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath, Immunotherapy and so on, are available to you.
