"Harassment" Can Help Save Kidney Patient’s Life

"Harassment" Can Help Save Kidney Patient’s LifeLast June, Xiangzi’s father felt very fretful, because not only his son was diagnosed with kidney disease but also one doctor often called him to harass for his son’s kidney disease.

His son’s disease must be treated, so they went to one hospital in Wuhan. His son got steroid treatment for one month, but his proteinuria always hover around 2+ and 3+. The doctor told them this is normal phenomenon, and it will come back to normal with consolidation therapy. Also, the doctor exhorted them to reduce the dosage of steroids gradually and not to stop these medicines suddenly.

Then, Xiangzi continued to take medicines for several months and got review during this period of time, but his proteinuria was still 2+. This made his father more fretful. What’s worse, Xiangzi’s face became larger and larger. Is this the side effect of steroid?

His father wanted to consult one doctor. Just in this time, the harassed call came. Then, he asked the doctor his query. The doctor told him this was attributed to long-term steroids. Generally, once patients stopped their medicines, their body changes will be relieved naturally.

Next, the doctor said, kidney disease is actually caused by the buildup of immune complexes in kidneys and inflammatory reactions. This induces inherent kidney cells to be damaged. Although steroids can help inhibit inflammatory reactions, they are unable to remove immune complexes. This is why patients’ kidney disease relapses again and again. Finally, Xiangzi’s father decided to take him to come to Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital.

After about half a month’s treatment, Xiangzi’s proteinuria becomes negative. This means this patient’s kidney disease is managed very well.
