Nephrotic Syndrome Prognosis describes as the output of treatments for people with Nephrotic Syndrome. In some cases, Nephrotic Syndrome can get remission spontaneously, but in most cases, the Nephrotic Syndrome prognosis isn’t so good. Here, you can get an overall understanding.
How about Nephrotic Syndrome prognosis?
Firstly, the root causes determine its prognosis to large extent. Generally speaking, Nephrotic Syndrome due to minimal change disease (MCD) and mild membranous kidney disease has a good prognosis.
If Nephrotic Syndrome is caused by MCD, some patients may get remission naturally and the output of their treatment is quite good, but Nephrotic Syndrome relapses easily after remission. Early-stage membranous kidney disease has a high response rate for treatment, while in end stage, it is difficult to control.
If Nephrotic Syndrome results from FSGS or chronic glomerulonephritis, patients’ prognosis will be bad. Most patients finally have kidney failure. Besides, a lot of proteinuria, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are also factors to worsen patients’ prognosis.
How to improve the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome?
From the above analysis, we have known what affects Nephrotic Syndrome prognosis, so to improve it, we should begin with the following points:
● Manage symptoms of Nephrotic Syndrome actively
Protein leakage, high blood pressure and high cholesterol level all can cause further kidney damage if untreated timely. To control them, diet modifications and medications play an important effect. Taking medications as doctors guide, you can get improvement obviously.
● Inhibit immune reaction and fix damaged glomeruli
Making kidneys work normally again is our ultimate purpose to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. Here, TCM may be helpful. It has effects of increasing the blood flow through kidneys and improving the self-curative ability of impaired kidney cells. As soon as glomeruli are repaired successfully, patients can improve their prognosis.
