How To Treat Frequent Relapse of Proteinuria In Nephrotic Syndrome
Proteinuria is one major sign of Nephrotic Syndrome. But it relapses frequently. If left untreated for a long run, it can affect kidney function, causing kidney dysfunction or even kidney failure. Well then, how to treat proteinuria radically in Nephrotic Syndrome?
One major factor that can contribute to the frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome is plasma albumin.
Large amounts of protein leakage will decrease plasma albumin, leading to hypoproteinemia and even severe swelling such as lower limb swelling/systemic edema.
At the same time, decreased plasma albumin will reduce patients’ immunity and then patients are more likely to suffer from cold and infection. In this condition, urine protein relapses frequently and is difficult to turn negative. This will speed up deterioration of kidney function.
Kidney patients can supplement plasma protein through the following three points, so as to alleviate edema and hypoalbuminemia, more effectively reduce proteinuria.
1. Injection of human albumin
It can supplement plasma albumin quickly, improve immunity and treat proteinuria effectively.
2. Stick to a low but high quality protein diet
Low but high quality protein diet can supplement lots of lost protein and improve plasma albumin. But you should plan reasonably and avoid consuming too much.
Patients with massive proteinuria or hypoproteinemia should consume 1-1.2g/kg body weight of protein per day in stage 1 and 2 kidney disease; patients in stage 3 and 4 kidney disease should consume 0.8-1g/kg body weight of protein per day.
3. Repair kidney damage and improve renal function
The root cause of protein in urine is injured glomeruli which can not keep protein into your body. If injured glomeruli can be restored, protein leakage will stop. Here we recommend Chinese Medicine Treatment including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They first cleanse your blood through removing wastes and toxins from your body. This can give you a clean blood environment. Then Chinese medicines can arrive at kidney lesion directly to repair injured glomeruli and improve renal function. In this way, proteinuria can be stopped from root.
