Topics: Nephrotic Syndrome nephrotic syndrome symptoms

Details: My nephew is suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome, and he has been under steroids for more than a year. He has frequent cold and passing protein 2+ in urine.

Expert Answer

Proteinuria is usually the first sign of Nephrotic Syndrome, so good management of passing protein is one big concern for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. If left alone, protein leakage will induce some other complications such as malnutrition, low immune ability, risk of frequent cold, and so on. Now, we can know your nephew’s frequent cold may be due to protein leakage especially immunoglobin leakage.

Additionally, steroids can also induce frequent cold, infections, and some other side effects. In view of this, some other therapies that can help manage your nephew’s protein leakage and frequent cold should be taken.

According to your description, we would like to recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy can repair damaged kidney filtration membrane and make glomeruli keep protein in the blood normally. Besides, some Chinese medicines are used in this osmotherapy to boost patients’ immune ability, so as to prevent and treat frequent cold.

Until now, this therapy has been used in clinic for more than 20 years, and more and more patients have witness its therapeutic effects. Hopefully, your nephew can also get a lot of benefits from it.
