Two Factors Make Nephrotic Syndrome Relapse Frequently
Children with Nephrotic Syndrome are prone to relapse after traditional treatment. This is also one of the important factors that Nephrotic Syndrome is difficult to be treated. Why does Nephrotic Syndrome relapse frequently?
Nephrotic Syndrome, especially in children, is prone to relapse mainly because of the following two reasons:
1. Hormone therapy only cures the symptoms, not the disease
We can not say hormones and other western medicines have no effect on Nephrotic Syndrome treatment. There is no doubt that hormone treatment can effectively eliminate symptoms, such as protein and occult blood turning negative in short time periods. But you need to know that hormone therapy only cures the symptoms, not the disease. Simply eliminating proteinuria and hematuria can temporarily control the disease, but does not treat the damaged kidney tissues. Our center does not advocate hormone therapy for Nephrotic Syndrome. We recommend Chinese Medicine Treatments for repairing kidney damage and treating the disease from root. In this way, many patients have achieved good curative effects.
2. Children are susceptible to infection and colds, which can make the illness worse
Generally kidney patients will have decreased resistance and they are prone to get infection and cold. Children are in the growth stage and body tissues have not developed mature so they become vulnerable to disease infestation. Children with kidney disease are helpless in the face of external viruses and are susceptible to infections and colds, which can make the illness worse.
In addition to treatment, what should parents pay attention to?
1. Nephrotic Syndrome patients should not be too tired and parents should pay attention to.
Children have poor self-disciple and feel very fresh after coming home from the hospital. They are easy to play overly tired and lack of sleep. Parents should pay special attention to arrange the children's rest time and let them get enough rest.
2. Avoid salty foods
Diet should be low salt. This is very important for children whose blood pressure has not been reduced to normal. But foods with no salt will affect the appetite so it is proper to use low-salt diet. After swelling and high blood pressure disappears, your diet can be improved but should be light. It should not be too salty.
3. Children’s clothes should not be worn for a long time.
Infection is usually the cause for inducing kidney disease relapse. Taking bath and changing clothes regularly can keep your skin clean and prevent skin infections.
4. Children should not go to public places.
Keep the indoor air fresh, try not to take the children to the shops, cinemas and other public places. According to climate change, change or add clothes to prevent colds.
5. Do not reduce or stop medicines by yourself.
Parents should supervise their children to take the medicines on time and must not reduce or stop the medicines at will, lest cause illness to relapse.
