Causes of Nephrotic Syndrome: Immune Dysfunction

2012-10-04 10:51

Nephrotic Syndrome is an autoimmune disease, and there is abnormal immune reaction in patient's body. Traditional treatment like steroids and immunosupressants can just control the symptoms but could not restore the damaged renal cells as well as could not rectify the abnormal immune reaction. That is why the illness always relapse.

Causes of Nephrotic Syndrome: immune dysfunction

There is a natural immune system in our body and a back up system so that we can fight against disease automatically. When the intrusion is too strong and our inherent immune system is not able to fight against it, the back up system will be started. After the intrusion is removed, the back up system will stop working and the inherent system will work itself again. This is the process people recovered from the disease.

However, if the inherent immune system has some disorders, it may continue sending signals to the back up system, and the back up system cannot stop working, there will be excessie immune reaction. The immune complex will deposit on the epithelia of kidneys. If the glomerular epithelia is damaged, the barrier function of glomerular will be affected, leading to the leakage of protein and the toxin can not be discharged from our body. That's why people have Nephrotic Syndrome.

The effect of immunosupressants is to stop the immune reaction by damaging the chain of sending signals. However, when the medicine is reduced or stopped, the immune reaction will start again, because the immune complex has not been removed and our body still considers it as foreign matter.

Therefore, the process of treating Nephrotic Syndrome is to make the body accept the foreign matter and then remove them out by Chinese herbal medicine which has very good effect in invigorating blood circulation and removing stasis. There is no western medicine can remove the immune complex until now. Chinese medicine can also reactivate the self-renewal ability of the damaged cells and repair the damaged basement membrane, so the protein leakage in Nephrotic Syndrome can be solved fundamentally.
