“Doctor, my son has been with Nephrotic Syndrome for 3 years. His swelling recurs frequently. Is there any good treatment?” If you have the similar condition, go on reading to see little Zheng’s story.
Zheng is a 8 years old boy. He has been diagnosed with kidney disease for 3 years. During this period of time, he was treated twice in the local hospital.
At the first time, he had eyelid swelling and he was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. Local doctor used steroids for 10 days. Then his swelling disappeared and urine protein turned negative, hence he was discharged from hospital.
At the second time, his swelling got worsened. And his urine protein was 3+. Local hospital used Chinese medicine. But after a period of treatment, his swelling did not disappear, and his urine protein fluctuated from 1+ to 3+.
Once in a while, his mother heard about Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital and took children here for treatment.
Because of eye swelling and limb swelling, Zheng looked fat, but he did not have any energy, and he was always weak.
Test report showed that his urine protein had increased to 4+, and 24h urine protein was 1.05g. Our characteristic treatment including oral Chinese medicine and those external therapies was adopted to help him improve his condition. After about half month’s treatment, his swelling faded away, and he looked energetic.
Besides, his urine protein turned negative, and 24h urine protein decreased to 0.08g. When his mother saw the result, she was very happy.
Now do you know why swelling relapses frequently?
That is because in the beginning, his treatment only focused on decreasing urine protein and eliminating swelling rather than cleansing those toxins out of body and treating the nidus. Massive protein leakage results from glomeruli filtration membrane damage. Therefore, we should clear the toxins in the basement membrane and lesion tissues and at the same time repair the damaged basement membrane.
Why his urine protein did not turn negative with Chinese medicine in the local hospital?
That is because simple oral Chinese medicine is not enough for patients to have a good effect. When Chinese medicine goes into body by mouth, liver and other tissues will weaken the effect of medications. But if you use external therapies, active ingredients of medicine can arrive at kidneys directly. And then its effect will be very obvious.
