Can Nephrotic Syndrome Caused by Minimal Change Disease Be Cured

2013-09-20 14:12

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Caused by Minimal Change Disease Be CuredNephrotic Syndrome caused by minimal change disease is more common in children but also affects adults. Compared with other causes, the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome due to this cause is better. Does it mean Nephrotic Syndrome caused by minimal change disease can be cured?

Minimal change disease is a condition in which the nephrons of patients’ kidneys look normal under a regular microscope. The cause of this disease is thought to be changes in some certain cells of the immune system. Generally speaking, patients’ kidney function is still normal and the outcome of recovery is usually excellent.

For patients with Nephrotic Syndrome due to minimal change disease, proteinuria and edema are two typical symptoms. Corticosteroid is one commonly used drug for these patients, and the therapeutic effects are quick and affirmative. About 90% of children and nearly as many adults can respond to treatment, that is to say, most of them can have large remission.

Does it reveal Nephrotic Syndrome is cured completely? The answer is no. Even though corticosteroid can help treat this type of Nephrotic Syndrome, but a part of patients do suffer from the relapse.

This is because the effect of corticosteroid on kidney disease is mainly to fight against inflammation. This medicine can reduce effusion of acute inflammation, stabilize lysosomal membrane, decrease the deposit of fibrous protein and decline the permeability of blood capillary, so as to reduce the leakage of protein.

The biggest disadvantage of this medication is that it aims at inhibiting immune reaction rather than normalizing immune system. This is the reason that Nephrotic Syndrome recur easily only with this medicine.

What should we do? From the above analysis, medications that can regulate immune system are needed. Here, traditional Chinese medicines are better, since all of them come from natural herbs that have an outstanding superiority in regulating patients’ internal environment as well as immune system. With correct herbs, you can get better remission from Nephrotic Syndrome.
