How to Reduce Proteinuria 5g/d for Nephrotic Syndrome

Topics: Nephrotic Syndrome nephrotic syndrome symptoms

Details: We have a Nephrotic Syndrome patient whose proteinuria in 24 hours was 5g when admitting in our hospital. How do doctors here control his proteinuria?

Expert Answer

Nephrotic Syndrome is one glomerular disease, and proteinuria 3.5g/d or higher and plasma albumin less than 30g/L are the essential diagnostic factors for Nephrotic Syndrome. Proteinuria is one important factor to affect patients’ prognosis. That is to say, the better proteinuria controlled, the better their prognosis.

As this patient’s proteinuria is 5g/d, doctors firstly take action to control his proteinuria. Since he didn’t respond to steroids, doctors use small dosage of immunosuppressants to prevent protein from leaking out. After one week, patients’ proteinuria is reduced obviously.

During the application of immunosuppressants, doctors also use Immunotherapy to remove immune complexes, regulate immune system and repair damaged kidney cells. After about one month, this patients’ kidneys filter blood normally and effectively.

To strengthen the therapeutic effects of his treatment plan, doctors determine to extent his treatment time to one and half a month. When he was discharged out of our hospital, his protein leakage in 24 hours declines to 0.15g. It means normal. If you have a similar case, you can also try our treatment.
