Does Cyclosporin Damage The Kidney

My daughter has minimal change disease. She was steroid dependent that is why she is now on 25mg cyclosporin. Does cyclosporin damage the kidney?

Cyclosporin is an immunosuppressant that reduces the body’s ability to fight against diseases. Minimal change disease is one common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome. Steroids are often used firstly to ease patients’ symptoms such as proteinuria and swelling. However, when steroids can’t work very well, immunosuppressants may be recommended.

Cyclosporin is one common immunosuppressant that can slow the progress of minimal change disease as well as Nephrotic Syndrome. However, this medication does cause some side effects, including:

- Headache, nausea and vomiting

- Diarrhea, stomach pain and muscle cramps

- Dizziness or memory problem

- Increased hair growth on the body

- Weight gain

- Low immunity and frequent urinary tract infections

- High blood pressure

In addition, the biggest side effect is kidney damage. Regular use of cyclosporin can cause further kidney damage. In view of this, some alternative treatments to reduce the side effects of cyclosporin but manage kidney disease are needed.

Immunotherapy is just such a treatment. With six steps, Immunotherapy can cleanse pathogenic factors out of the body as well as kidneys. Also, it can regulate immune system and repair damaged kidney cells. Therefore, it can replace immunosuppressants to treat minimal change disease and Nephrotic Syndrome. To learn more about immunotherapy, you can ask help from nephrologists at kidney healthy web.
