What troubles most Nephrotic Syndrome patients is the frequent relapse. Do you want to know how we deal with the relapsing Nephrotic Syndrome? Go on reading to learn little Bei’s story.
“Dr.Tian. Little Bei’s urine protein was 3+, and both her face and legs became swelling. What to do?”
“Well, it is her Nephrotic Syndrome that relapsed. You had better take her to the hospital nearby to lower urine protein, otherwise it can impair kidney function, elevating creatinine level.”
Bei’s mother took her to the local hospital. Her test report showed that her urine protein was as high as 3g. Unexpected, after one day’s treatment, she felt nausea and vomiting, so she had to change the hospital.
“Dr.Tian, her creatinine increased. It is 183. Is it kidney failure?”
“In severe case, Nephrotic Syndrome can cause acute kidney failure. Do not worry too much. Her creatinine can be lowered as long as you cooperate with doctor.”
“How can I not worry? What if her creatinine level does not come down? I want to take Bei to see you.”
Though Dr.Tian comforted Bei’s mother, she felt upset. On December 23th, they arrived at Shijiazhuang. Dr.Tian analyzed Bei’s condition carefully. There were several severe questions.
1. Her urine protein was 3+. And it was 3.8g.
2. Uric acid level was as high as 1012 umol/L.
3. Creatinine was 183 umol/L. If it could not be lowered within one week, it would be more difficult.
4. Her urine output became less. The first day of hospitalization, it was only 500 ml.
For Nephrotic Syndrome, urine protein is caused by inflammation, which can affect kidney function when it is very active, leading to symptoms of declined kidney function, such as increased creatinine and uric acid level, reduced urine output, etc. In such a case, both symptoms and causes of disease should be treated.
After the discussion of expert team, Dr.Tian helped her make a detailed treatment plan, which consists of Chinese medicine and western medicine. In the first week, her creatinine level reduced to 79 umol/L, and her uric acid level also reduced quickly, because she was sensitive to medications for uric acid. At the same time, her urine output increased gradually. Several days later, it maintained at 1500ml.
When seeing those improvement, Bei’s mother felt very happy, so she sent silk banner to our medical team.
The symptoms of kidney failure were eliminated. The biggest the problem is the deposited toxins in blood and kidneys. It is those toxins that cause immune inflammatory reaction, triggering the relapse. This is a long-term course, which requires combined therapies such as hot compress, medicated foot bath, oral Chinese medicines and so on. After a period of treatment, her urine protein turned +-.
As far as we can see, her treatment plan is very effective. As long as she pays attention to diet and rest, and take preventative measures to infections, she can reduce the rate of relapse. If she can prevent relapse in one and half years, she can lead a normal life.
