Topics: Nephrotic Syndrome nephrotic syndrome symptoms

Details: I am 23 years old and male. I have Nephrotic Syndrome. Now, my protein in urine is very much, but I am taking cellcept tablets. Can it control my proteinuria?

Expert Answer

Heavy proteinuria is one typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. Cellcept is one medicine that can inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys, so protein leakage will be reduced obviously.

However, not all patients can respond to Cellcept. Besides, only depending on this medicine may make Nephrotic Syndrome relapse again and again. This is because this medicine can’t remove immune complexes from the body and treat kidney disease from the root. If your proteinuria can’t be controlled successfully by cellcept, you are suggested to take some systemic therapies.

Immunotherapy is one systemic therapy that can help remove pathogenic factors from the body, regulate immune system and repair damaged kidney cells. Generally, after about one or two months, your proteinuria and Nephrotic Syndrome can be controlled very well.

To strengthen the therapeutic effects of this therapy, you are suggested to take some auxiliary therapies such as Medicated Bath, Hot Compress Therapy, Cycle Therapy, and so on. The detailed treatment plan should depend on patients’ illness condition. To get a correct treatment plan for yourself, you can consult the doctor online.
