Hormonal Effects in Treatment of Nephrotic SyndromeHormone therapy for kidney disease has a history of 60 years. And it is also the main treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome. What is the hormonal effects in treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome? Read on to learn more information.

Hormones used in clinical work usually refer to glucocorticoids secreted by adrenal cortex, which are widely used in many diseases, such as adrenal cortex hypofunction, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, bronchial asthma, idiopathic thrombocytopenic pura, primary Nephrotic Syndrome, etc.

Hormonal effects in treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome

Hormones have strong anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects in the treatment of kidney diseases. When they enter the human body, they mainly act on the white blood cells in the blood circulation. By inhibiting the secretion of various cytokines by the white blood cells, they can inhibit the white blood cells to migrate to the inflammation site, thus playing an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effect.

Hormones can also affect the function of vascular endothelial cells, thereby affecting vascular permeability.

Hormones can also enter the cell freely, bind to the corresponding receptors in the cell (similar to keys and locks), and ultimately lead to the reduction of many cytokines that promote inflammation.

In the course of intravenous hormone pulse therapy, the use of hormones is very large (10-15 times as much as oral hormones).

Hormones also act on receptors on cell membranes, and this effect comes quickly.

However, there is not much knowledge about whether hormones affect the function of the kidney itself and how they affect it.

Adverse effect of hormones in the treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome

Long-term hormone application can bring a series of side effects, for example, weight gain, moon face, increased appetite, abnormal fat deposition on body, infection, diabetes, bone disease, etc. And different patients have different reactions.
