Nephrotic Syndrome, Swelling Badly on and off: What to Do

Question: Hello, I have problem. My daughter suffers from Nephrotic Syndrome. Her swelling is badly on and off. What should I do to help?

Answer: Swelling is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. It is badly on and off, which means her disease is not stable. What treatment does your daughter receive now? And how long does the treatment last? Generally speaking, after about 3 months of steroid treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome can get complete remission. Steroids are the most commonly used treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to inhibit renal inflammation and reduce protein leakage. When proteinuria gets relieved, swelling will be controlled. But this kind of medicine is only temporary medical relief, because they can not repair kidney damage and promote renal function. If she wants to have a permanent control of the disease, alternative treatment is needed.

With Toxin-Removing Treatment, swelling will fade away within one week.

In kidney disease hospital China, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used in Nephrotic Syndrome treatment. This treatment is also known as Detoxification Therapy. You may wonder why Nephrotic Syndrome patients need such a treatment. The reason why the disease is long-lasting is that there are a lot of waste products in the blood. They do not only cause further kidney damage, but also counteract the effect of medications to restrain the patients from getting well.

This treatment is actually a systemic treatment, which is composed of 9 therapies. Those therapies can work together to increase urination, improve bowel movement and make patients sweating so as to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

After about one week’s treatment, swelling will fade away.

After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will get relieved.

After about one month’s treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control, and renal function will get promoted. With the improvement of renal condition, proteinuria will turn negative, and swelling will disappear completely.

All in all, it is not good for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to have swelling badly on and off, because it indicates the disease gets relapse frequently.
