Face Swelling, Weight Gain due to Prednisone in Nephrotic Syndrome

I am a nephrotic syndrome sufferer and I have been on prednisone for a few months now. The face swelling and weight gain really make me freak out. What should I do to deal with these problems? Will they disappear once I stop using the medicines?

Face swelling and weight gain are common side effects of long-term use of prednisone.

Prednisone can regulate the body’s fluid balance, sodium and other electrolytes. As a result, it can cause retention of fluids, thus leading to face swelling. Additionally, retention of fluids may cause or worsen high blood pressure.

Additionally, prednisone can affect the metabolism and how the body deposits fact. Long-term use of the medicine can improve your appetite and increase more fat deposits in body. Weight gain will occur as a result.

Generally, most of the puffiness goes away within a week or so after completely stopping the medicines. Also, your weight will recover gradually. However, nephrotic syndrome relapses so frequently. If you return to medicines, the associated symptoms will appear again.

Is there any way to help nephrotic syndrome patients on prednisone to get rid of the above those side effects completely?

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an alternative therapy for people with nephrotic syndrome. This is a natural therapy and external therapy which develops from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Based on various conditions, different formulations are given. As the medicine ingredients are herbal plants from nature, they are free of side effects on body completely.

This therapy can control the symptoms of nephrotic syndrome by restoring the impaired kidney structure and improving renal function. Meanwhile, it can correct immune dysfunction and enhance immunity significantly. In this way, it can prevent the relapse of the condition.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can treat nephrotic syndrome from its underlying causes. Therefore, it can help the patients prevent relapses of the condition and avoid using prednisone again. The associated side effects like face swelling and weight gain will not recur.
