How Can Children with Nephrotic Syndrome Prevent Infections
Infection is one of the factors that make Nephrotic Syndrome worse. Therefore, the prevention of infection is an important link in the treatment of the disease. How can children with Nephrotic Syndrome prevent infections? Now go on reading to learn more information.
1. To prevent the formation of some hidden infection focus.
Once some neglected diseases form infection focus, they will also affect the proteinuria to turn negative or trigger the relapse of disease. Therefore, these hidden dangers should be eliminated as soon as possible. Oral cavity is the most easily neglected and the most easily infected place. In oral care, besides maintaining oral hygiene, treating oral mucosal inflammation, ulcers and gingival diseases, attention should also be paid to caries.
2. To keep indoor air clean.
On the one hand, to reduce the flow of people. Children taking steroids are very sensitive to the virus. Especially in the epidemic season of infectious diseases, such as varicella, measles and herpes zoster, the symptoms are often very serious. Moreover, with chickenpox, steroids are prohibited. So when there are too many people visiting, you should do a good job of persuasion and explanation; try to avoid going to places with large population so as to avoid adverse consequences. On the other hand, we should not only maintain the circulation of indoor air, but also pay attention to air disinfection. Air is also the vector of infection in children. The bacterial content in air is directly proportional to the chance of infection in children. Indoor cleaning and disinfection should be done well.
3. To keep warm and prevent cold.
With the change of season and climate, parents should add or reduce clothes and quilts in time for children to prevent overheating or cold. When air conditioning is turned on in summer, the temperature difference between indoor and outdoor should not exceed 6 C. Otherwise, the cold and heat imbalance will easily lead to colds. Meanwhile, anti-mosquito facilities should be prepared. Children taking steroids have low resistance. Because there are more mosquitoes in summer, their skin is easily damaged by bites. Especially small children with delicate skin should pay more attention. Spread dew or use mosquito nets to prevent mosquitoes.
4. To pay attention to adjusting diet.
After taking steroids, children's appetite increases, but the body's immunity is low, so dietary adjustment can not be ignored. Some high-protein and high-calorie diets can be properly supplemented. Besides, you can supplement some other trace elements according to your medical condition. And long-term unreasonable salt avoidance should be avoided in order to prevent and correct electrolyte disorders, enhance resistance and prevent complications.
5. To pay attention to psychological nursing.
Psychological factors have two-way effects. Bad psychological factors can lead to the decline of immune function and aggravate the occurrence and development of diseases. On the contrary, good mental state can prevent and treat diseases. Because of the long course of the disease, it is still easy to relapse after complete remission of treatment, which makes parents bear heavy mental and economic burdens and children lose confidence because of repeated illness. Therefore, care and encouragement should be given so that family members and children can build up confidence, maintain optimistic and positive attitude and adhere to treatment.
