2014-02-23 17:59| Font Size A A A

Nephrotic syndrome refers to a medical condition in which the glomeruli became injured. And the four typical symptoms are severe proteinuria(>3.5g/24hours), hypoproteinemia(<3.0g/dL), swelling and hyperkalemia. In this article, you can find more information about the causes and treatments of proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome.

Causes of proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome

In right condition, the glomeruli within the kidneys work as filtering units. On the one hand, they can keep useful substances in the body, such as, protein. On the other hand, wastes and excess fluid can be filtered out of the blood.

However, in this disorder, the normal filtering system can not work adequately. Eventually, substances like protein will leak into the urine. And this is the major cause of protein in urine.

Besides, other reasons can also lead to this abnormal sign, if you are suffering from this, do remember to talk with your doctor about the root cause.

How to treat proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome?

Proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome should be treated early and effectively. If not, kidney failure will occur eventually. In that case, patients have to resort to dialysis or a kidney transplant to sustain their life.

Corticosteroids Sometimes, doctors may provide patients with corticosteroids treatment. Even if this method can alleviate this sign to a certain degree, there are always some side effects. More importantly, kidney damage still exists.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy To treat this sign radically, it is important to seek for effective treatments to promote kidney function.

As a new form of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM), it combines modern medicine technology perfectly.

By improving blood circulation, reducing inflammatory reaction, anti-coagulation and providing nutrients for the damaged kidneys, renal function can be promoted gradually. Once this problem is resolved, protein in urine can be well controlled.

Generally, this treatment may last for 45-90 minutes each time, if they feel bored, patients can also listen to a light music or watch a funny movie.
