When referring to colds, many Nephrotic Syndrome patients become alert, because it is the main cause of relapse. But sometimes without catching a cold, it relapses as well. What is the matter? Here I list 3 factors that trigger the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. Hope you are alert to them as well.
-Steroids inhibit the immune system.
Steroids are essential medications for Nephrotic Syndrome, but if you depend on such a treatment completely, it is only a temporary medical relief. Because steroids can inhibit immune system. Once they are stopped, immune system becomes active again, and then disease comes back soon.
To stabilize the disease and control it well, you should not only follow the doctor’s advice to take moderate steroids to inhibit the overactive immune reaction, but also use Chinese medicine, such as Hot Compress Therapy, Steam Therapy, Medicated Bath and so on to adjust the abnormal immune reaction and repair the damaged kidneys to maximum. When state of illness restores to certain extent, you can taper steroids and stop them according to the suggestions of doctors.
-Tapering medicine intake without the permission of doctor, which can cause and worsen infections
Tapering medicine intake without the permission of doctor can cause body system disorder and declined immunity, triggering various infections. Once there is inflammation and infections, Nephrotic Syndrome can come back in a short time or even get worse quickly.
Before controlling the disease well, you can not taper the disease especially steroids because of their side effects.

Diet restriction is often recommended to kidney patients, but improper diet restriction can cause malnutrition or overnutrition. Malnutrition can cause immune function disorder and poor physical condition, while overnutrition can put extra stress on kidneys. Both of them can trigger the relapse. Therefore, you should balance your diet according to your condition.
