What should you do if you got the kidney disease? Many doctors advice patients take hormone to relieve their symptoms. But do you know that hormone cannot treat this disease totally? The side effects would appear if patients only take hormone. So let us tell you why hormone cannot treat nephrotic syndrome totally?

The symptom is central obesity which is easy to lead to osteoporosis and the serious patients would appear the symptoms of pathologic fracture.
The second one is glucocorticoid would decrease the defensive capability of immune system which would lead to bacterial growth and reproduction quickly. It would induce or aggravate infection.
The third one is glucocorticoid would promote the protein breakdown which would prevent the cure of injuries.
The forth one is glucocorticoid has the effect on fighting against growth hormone. It will influence bone growth and protein synthesis if children take it for a long time. If pregnant women take glucocorticoid would lead to fetal anomaly.
The fifth one is that the original symptoms would worse than before if patients stop to take glucocorticoid suddenly or reduce the glucocorticoid too fast, even more would appear some symptoms such as myalgia and joint pain which can be called withdrawal symptoms.
