For some renal patients, their illness condition is not that severe, and they take medicine on time, but why their proteinuria not turn negative? It may due to the following reasons.

1. Uncontrolled blood pressure

When you pay a lot of attention to proteinuria, you can not spare enough time and energy for other aspects, which can also cause kidney damage without good control. For example, high blood pressure. Continuous increase of blood pressure can speed up kidney damage and worsen proteinuria as well as damage your cardiovascular disease.

2. Improper diet restriction

Kidney disease is a chronic disease, which does not only need medical treatment, but also healthy lifestyle. Otherwise, lifestyle can affect the effect of medications. Good living habits include: low salt diet (<6g), low quantity but high quality protein, moderate meat intake (<100 g per day), low fat, low sugar and low oil.

3. Individual difference in steroid treatment

Different types of disease and different people have different reactions to steroids. For some kidney disease, such as Minimal Change Disease, the effect of steroids is remarkable. While for some kidney diseases, such as FSGS, IgA Nephropathy and Lupus Nephritis, the effect is usually bad.

Different patients have different reaction to steroids as well.

-Steroid-sensitive type: the effect of steroids is particularly good. After a short period of treatment, proteinuria will decrease and turn negative.

-Steroid-dependant type: the effect is also good, but when you cut down the dosage to certain dosage (about 2 pieces), proteinuria will come back or even get worse. And then you have to restart the treatment process.

-Steroid-resistant type: there is no effect at all. In such a case, immunosuppressants are often used together to achieve the goal of eliminating proteinuria.

As to the last two types, you can also try systemic Chinese medicine treatment, such as Toxin-Removing Treatment, which can help turn proteinuria negative after about one month’s treatment.
