Question: Hi! my son has been diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. After taking prednisone for almost a month, the protein count is still high on the urine test result. The doctor advised us to take one more week medication but after one week and the result is the same. She said she will recommend for biopsy to check what is really the problem. Is there any other way that we can check the problem aside from biopsy?
Answer: Renal biopsy is a procedure used to extract kidney tissue for laboratory analysis. It helps your doctor identify the type of kidney disease your son has, how severe it is, and the best treatment for it, but it is invasive, and it has many side effects, such as infections, blood urine, fever, acute renal failure, back pain, etc. That is why many kidney patients do not want to take renal biopsy. In fact, with the development of medical technology, many other ways are developed to help doctors have a clear diagnosis.
In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we have a series of characterized tests, such as
-Urinary protein component tests
-Early renal injury marker test
-Hematuria localization test
-Immune complex test
-Lymphocyte subgroup test
-Toxin index test, etc
The above tests can also help find out where kidneys are damaged and how severely the kidneys are damaged so as to help doctors find out the best treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome.
