With These Four Characteristics, Nephrotic Syndrome May Be Cured Completely
Nephrotic Syndrome accounts for one-third of all kidney patients, and the proportion is not small. Moreover, Nephrotic Syndrome has a large amount of proteinuria and heavy edema, usually more obvious than the symptoms of nephritis, so in the course of treatment, patients with nephrotic syndrome are usually more anxious than patients with nephritis.
Many Nephrotic Syndrome patients have asked me:
Can nephrotic syndrome be completely cured?
To answer this question, we have to open a God's perspective: it can be completely cured.
But for the average patient, the answer is meaningless. Because, we can see that in the past, there were a small number of patients with nephrotic syndrome: they got complete remission after drug treatment, and no signs of recurrence were observed in the follow-up to the elderly, which can be said to be cured.
But this is only a small gain from God's perspective by looking back on the past. And what the patient wants to know is: will my nephrotic syndrome recur in the future? Unfortunately, no doctor has the ability to predict the future.
In fact, although we can not accurately judge a patient's future progress of nephropathy, but after all, the prognosis of patients affects the choice of treatment options, so we can "guess" a prognosis that is not particularly precise and not too deviated: the patient's condition in the future is cured, or maintained, or into renal failure uremia, there are a few rules.
Next, let's introduce them:
What are the characteristics of curable nephrotic syndrome?
Yes, nephrotic syndrome patients with edema tends to have better effect. This is not to say that edema is a sign of mild illness, but that edema increases the motivation for treatment.
Edema will remind patients of the onset of the disease, and it is time to see a doctor. And patients with edema often think that their disease is very serious, so they will take treatment more actively, and they are better a following medical advice then those without edema. In addition, patients with nephrotic syndrome whose edema is not obvious often do not know that they have kidney disease until uremia, but they can not be cured at that time.
2. Less pathological changes
From renal biopsy, we can see the severity of the disease: minimal lesions are lighter than focal segmental lesions and diffuse lesions, less sclerosing glomeruli are lighter than more sclerosing glomuerli, mesangial cells without proliferation are lighter than those with proliferation, capillary walls without thickening are lighter than those with thickening, no dense deposits are lighter than those with dense deposits, and no crescent body is lighter than those with crescent body, etc.
These nephrotic syndromes are more likely to be cured if minimal lesions can only be seen under electron microscopy, or if there is only deposition of immune complexes in the basement membrane, or if there is only a small increase in mesangial cells, etc.
3. The composition of urinary protein is simple.
There are many kinds of urinary proteins. To examine urinary protein components, if the urinary protein is basically albumin, and other proteins are very few, this nephrotic syndrome is relatively easy to treat.
If the composition of urinary protein is complex besides albumin, especially macromolecule protein and proteins expressing renal tubular injury exceed the standard, such as many immunoglobulin G, alpha microglobulin, beta microglobulin and NAG enzyme, the urinary protein of this nephrotic syndrome is difficult to eliminate.
4. The patients behave well themselves.
Often, the patient's condition is not serious, but because he does not understand the significance of follow-up, continues bad habits, and do not keep on treatment, his disease get worse and become incurable.
For 60% of nephrotic syndrome patients with steroids, urinary protein is difficult to alleviate or gets relapse after remission, so patients often need long-term treatment. It lasts from half a year to one year or even several years. For such a long time, the patients can not always be hospitalized, and most of them stay at home to take treatment, which puts forward higher requirements for patients' behavior.
In order to cure nephrotic syndrome, besides the pathology can not be too serious, patients often need self-discipline, good economic foundation, optimistic attitude, harmonious family, basic scientific literacy and so on.
In conclusion, if you have the above four characteristics, your nephrotic syndrome has a great possibility to cure. For more information on Nephrotic Syndrome treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
