Question: My daughter was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome at the age of three. She is currently taking prograf, lisinopril, and prednisone. But from time to time, she still has protein in her urine. What can I do to maintain her albumin levels?
Answer: Nephrotic Syndrome is very difficult to treat. The medications she take are mainly used to control symptoms. For example, prograf is an immunosuppressant, which can suppress immune system so as to inhibit inflammatory reaction in kidneys. Lisinopril is used to treat hypertension. And prednisone is to reduce protein leakage. But your daughter still has protein in urine from time to time. It indicates that those medications are not enough for her to control the disease. Maybe she is prednisone resistant. In such a case, you had better change the treatment into another.
In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use Chinese medicine to treat Nephrotic Syndrome.
Compared with the above western medicine, Chinese medicine does not have so many side effects, and it is helpful for the damaged kidneys to recover. To achieve a better effect, system Chinese medicine treatment is often applied. For example, Toxin-Removing Treatment. It takes advantage of a variety of Chinese medicine, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, oral Chinese medicine, Mai Kang Mixture and so on to remove massive waste products from body to make internal environment clean. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so as to improve ischemia and anoxia. Besides, it can provide the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. After a week’s treatment, swelling will disappear. After about one week’s treatment, proteinuria will decrease. After one month’s treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome will be under controlled. With treatment going on, kidney condition will get well. With the improvement of kidney condition, albumin level will be maintained into normal range.
