Question: My son is 9 years old and was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome in February last year (2017). He has relapsed twice now. He is being treated with prednisone and is taking 60mg daily. What is the herbal alternative?
Answer: Prednisone is a common used drug for Nephrotic Syndrome. It is to inhibit renal inflammation and decrease permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. But this is only temporary medical relief. The reason why there is renal inflammation is that immune complexes deposit on the kidneys. If those immune complexes can not be cleared away, inflammatory reaction will flare up easily, especially when the patients catch a cold or under other inducements, such as over fatigue. That is why you son suffers from relapse frequently.
Now your son is only 9 years old. He is still in a period of development and growth. Long-term large dosage of prednisone intake has a lot of side effects. Besides appearance changes, the most serious side effect is that it affects the child’s growth and development. Therefore, a natural treatment is needed in the long run.
