Why does Nephrotic Syndrome occur?

The typical sign of Nephrotic Syndrome is proteinuria. In normal condition, 24h urine protein quantity should be lower than 0.15g. If it is higher than this range, urine protein will be diagnosed.

Clinically proteinuria higher than 3.5g is called renal proteinuria. Massive proteinuria will cause the following complications:

Lots of protein leakage will cause sudden decline of plasma proteins and lead to hypoproteinemia.

Hypoproteinemia especially for the loss of plasma protein will lead to disorder of colloid osmotic pressure and then severe edema will occur.

Hypoproteinemia will lead to the increase of lipoproteins and result in hyperlipidemia.

What is the key point in Nephrotic Syndrome treatment?

The key point for Nephrotic Syndrome treatment is to eliminate massive proteinuria. Thus, steroids are the common medicines. Steroids have the following functions:


Toxic substances which attack your body will be swallowed by your own immune cells. Toxic substances and immune cells will form immune complexes depositing in your kidneys. The deposition of immune complexes will cause the attack of immune cells and immune inflammatory reaction will occur. The inflammatory reaction will damage kidney cells and cause protein leakage.

The anti-inflammation function of steroids can relieve inflammatory reaction damage on your kidneys.

Reduce permeability

The protein leakage is because of gap of renal cells is enlarged and permeability is increased. So if permeability is reduced, proteinuria will disappear naturally.

Another key point in kidney treatment is to repair injured glomeruli. Only in this way can proteinuria be treated from the root. Here we recommend Chinese medicine treatments including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They can expand blood vessels, improve blood circulation, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix and provide nutrients. These functions can help gradually restore injured kidney glomeruli so as to stop proteinuria.
