Steroid for Nephrotic Syndrome with Minimal Change on Renal

Steroid for Nephrotic Syndrome with Minimal Change on RenalNephrotic Syndrome caused by minimal change disease (MCD) is commonly seen in children or adolescent. Steroid is one medication that can usually help manage Nephrotic Syndrome and ease patients’ symptoms. Follow me to learn more about steroid for NS with minimal change on renal.

What is steroid?

There are many types of steroid medications such as glucocorticoid, prednisone and corticosteroid. Most of these medicines have an effect of dampening overactive immune responses, easing proteinuria and managing swelling.

Nephrotic Syndrome caused by minimal change disease

At present, the cause of minimal change disease is still not understood fully, but the onset of MCD is indeed associated closely with the loss of negative charge in glomerular capillary walls. Therefore, excessive amount of protein leaks out. When the amount of protein leakage in 24 hours is more than 3.5 g, we call it Nephrotic Syndrome.

How does steroid for Nephrotic Syndrome with MCD?

Steroids can prevent protein from leaking through glomeruli and inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys. It is reported that 90% of MCD patients can get remission with steroid treatment, but it is more likely to relapse after stopping medication.

Is there other treatment to prevent the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome?

With the development of modern medicine, more systemic treatment has been created to deal with this glomerular disorder. It is called Immunotherapy. With six inter-linked steps, Immunotherapy can repair impaired kidney filtering system and prevent the recurrence of Nephrotic Syndrome, through removing pathogenic factors, rebuilding kidney structure and adjusting the internal environment. Once glomeruli are repaired, patients don’t need to take steroids any more.

In serious cases, some auxiliary treatments may be needed such as Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, Massage and Acupuncture. The detailed treatment plan should depend on individual illness condition. To get personal advice, you can contact kidney experts through emailing to
