Nephrotic Syndrome is a group of kidney disorders caused be glomeruli damage. It is characterized by increased glomerular permeability and decreased GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). The causes of this kidney disease can be various. Gastrointestinal infection is also a factor of Nephrotic Syndrome occurrence.
How does gastrointestinal infection cause Nephrotic Syndrome?
Infection, along with auto-immune diseases (anaphylactoid purpura and lupus, systemic scleroderma), tumor, other kidney diseases (Diabetic Nephropathy and nephrosclerosis), etc are the common causes of Nephrotic Syndrome.
If gastrointestinal infection is untreated or uncontrolled, the inflammatory factors will irritate the kidneys frequently, causing extracellular matrix formation on glomeruli. As a result, the glomeruli cannot filter wastes effectively, and large amounts of protein leaking out with urine. Then, Nephrotic Syndrome happens.
How to treat Nephrotic Syndrome with gastrointestinal infection?
● In the past: Medicine is the first and the only way for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Infection can be a cause or a complication of this kidney disease. Immediate treatment is needed, and antibiotics are usually prescribed. Drinking plenty of water is also helpful, on the condition that you don’t have swelling or edema.
In addition, in order to relieve symptoms such as heavy proteinuria, general swelling, hyperlipidemia, and hypoproteinemia, some medicines will be prescribed. They may include glucocorticoids (prednison), cytotoxic drug (cyclophosphamide), or immunosuppressants (cyclosporine A).
Since long-term and large dosage of these medicines will cause some adverse effects, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should take these medicines closely monitored by a doctor.
● Nowadays: Medicine is not the best treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome, since its side effects. More over, medicine cannot solve the underlying problem, because, it won’t repair the damaged renal tissues.
Nowadays, a new and natural treatment named “Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy” has been used for treating Nephrotic Syndrome. It is can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammatory and degrade extracellular matrix, thus improving GFR and protect remaining kidney function.
