Patients with Nephrotic Syndromeshould cooperate with the doctor and be diagnosed early. Patients can also do renal biopsy to identify the nature of the disease according to the pathological changes and make personalized treatment schedule. After the treatment schedule is made, patients should closely follow the doctor's advice on medicine use and daily care.
The repair of the kidneys is a long process. Patients should continue with the treatment of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and take medicine with certain dosage, especially for patients using hormone medicine. When the prednisone has been reduced to 20~25mg/d, the disease is easier to relapse. Please don't be panic if it relapses, and contact with the doctor immediately. After regulating the treatment schedule, the disease can still be in remission.
Treat cold and infection actively and carefully.
According to the statistics of inducing factors of relapse, catching a cold is the main cause. Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome lost large amount of protein in urine. At the same time some important ingredients that forming our immune defense have already been lost such as immune globulin and compliments. The decline of albumin function and loss of microelements like zinc will also lower the immunity of the patients.
In western medicine treatment, glucocorticoid and cytotoxic drugs are often used, which make the immunity worse. Patients are easy to have infection including respiratory tract infection, intestinal infection, peritonitis, pleuritis etc.
If there is any kind of infection, patients should receive treatment actively and control it as early as possible. Please do not take medicine yourself. Because there are many kinds of antibiotics and some of them will cause further damage to the liver and kidneys. If there is infection, do take medicine under the doctor's guidance.
Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome should pay more attention to health care. Do proper exercise to strengthen the physical condition.
Patients are often told by the doctor or family member that " have a good rest", "don't be too tired". So they will do less exercise or even lie in bed. Actually it is not good for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome.
Walking is an easy and convenient way of exercise. Patients who are weak can walk slowly and for short time and patients in good physical condition can walk fast and for longer time. If patients can keep on waling in the park or woods, they will sure benefit.
Psychological state and diet are also important for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome. Keep in good mood and don't give any pressure to yourself. Take food scientifically under the doctor's guidance and give up the bad eating habits before.
