Question: Hi. My son has Nephrotic Syndrome since last 3 years and his age is 7 years. I just finish his chemotherapy last month. His WBC count is not normal, but physician has told me not to worry because he is progressing. I would like to know about precaution measures regarding food and exercise. Thanks
Answer: White blood cells (WBC) are to fight against the invading bacteria and virus. When their count is abnormal, it is likely for them to catch infections. Infections can trigger the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome and even make the current condition worse. Therefore, attention should be paid.
Here you said you want to know about precaution measures regarding food and exercises. I can give you some general suggestions. If you could send a copy of your son’s lab report to firstname.lastname@example.org, I can give you detailed guidance after analyzing his condition.
-Food. For children, who are in a stage of growth and development, there are not so many diet restrictions as adult. But it is still recommended to follow a low salt diet. In some cases, protein intake should be restricted as well.
-Exercise. To do some gentle exercises can boost immune system and reduce the risk of infections. Exercises, such as walking and jogging, are suggested.
Food and exercises are helpful, but they are only adjuvant treatment.
Here we recommend you a systemic Chinese medicine treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment. It makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, oral Chinese medicine and so on to expel waste products and excess fluid out of body, making internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, swelling will disappear, and proteinuria will turn negative. Because kidneys have been repaired, and immunity is strengthened, those symptoms won’t relapse as easily as before.
Importance should be attached when white blood cells amount is abnormal, because it may cause severe diseases for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. For more information on Nephrotic Syndrome, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
