2013-08-31 08:39

Chinese Herbs to Treat Proteinuria for Nephrotic SyndromeProteinuria or foamy urine is one typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. Because Chinese herbs, compared with western medicines, have fewer side effects and more benefits, more and more patients prefer Chinese herbs to treat their proteinuria due to Nephrotic Syndrome. What herbal medicines have such effects?

To get the answer, finding out the root cause of proteinuria should be the first step.

Proteinuria in Nephrotic Syndrome can be divided into glomerular proteinuria and renal tubular proteinuria. Kidney experts say that glomerular proteinuria is due to the damage of filtration barrier and the expansion of aperture. As a result, a lot of protein leaks from glomeruli to form proteinuria. Renal tubular proteinuria refers to the formation of proteinuria due to damaged renal tubules but normal filtration barrier.

According to the location and extent of kidney damage and patients’ individual condition, different Chinese herbs are used to handle the foamy urine. Today, we are here to introduce several herbs used commonly.

1. Cinnamon: This herb has a function of steroids that combine with cytoplasm receptor to form corresponding complexes within the cells. After a series of reactions, cinnamon can inhibit the production of RNA, so as to reduce the formation of protein and then ease proteinuria.

2. Schisandra chinensis: It has the properties of immunosuppressive agents that is able to inhibit the inflammation to glomerular filtration barrier, thus prevent protein from leaking. If your proteinuria belongs to glomerular proteinuria, this Chinese herb may be helpful.

3. Ground beetle: Similar with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor(ACEI), ground beetle can not only lower high blood pressure but also alleviate patients’ foamy urine and swelling.
