Question: I have Nephrotic Syndrome and have been excreting proteins in my urine. How best can I handle myself to prevent kidney problems?
Answer: Besides treatment in hospital, you indeed need to do something to handle yourself to prevent kidney problems, after all most of your time is spent at home. Here are some suggestions to help you.
Now the first problem to solve is the protein leakage, the most common symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. Long-term massive proteinuria can speed up glomerulosclerosis so as to impair your kidney function. Steroids and immunosuppressants are often used to reduce proteinuria. But they have a lot of side effects in the long run. Therefore, you had better try some natural treatment. In our hospital, we use Toxin-Removing Treatment together with steroids. This treatment can counteract the side effects of steroids, and it can also set up good blood environment for kidney self-healing and other medication application. After about half month’s treatment, your proteinuria will decrease. After one month’s treatment, your condition will be stable. And then you can gradually taper steroid intake and eventually get rid of it.
The second thing you should do is to adjust your lifestyle. Healthy lifestyle can help you reinforce the treatment effect and reduce its relapse. Then what is healthy lifestyle? You should follow a renal-friendly diet, which does not only help you fight against the disease, but also satisfy the need of body. You should also take part in some gentle exercises to strengthen your physical condition, which is helpful for your recovery. Besides, you should give up some bad habits, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, staying up, etc. And you should obey the advice of doctor. Do not taper medicine intake or stop it without the permission of doctors. Noncompliance is not good for you to prevent kidney problems as well.
