In clinical practice, it has been shown that many patients, upon learning that they have nephrotic syndrome, will exhibit panic, confusion, and even pessimistic thoughts. After being diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, it is important to actively seek treatment. So, how to treat patients with nephrotic syndrome? Let's take a look together.
Due to the fact that many people are not very familiar with nephrotic syndrome, many people have the idea that it is an incurable disease. In fact, nephrotic syndrome is not as severe as people imagine. After suffering from this disease, it is important to actively seek medical treatment at the hospital. In treatment, edema is usually treated first, and severe edema should be treated with diuretics. At the same time, increasing the plasma colloid osmotic pressure can strengthen the diuretic effect. Plasma albumin and plasma substitutes can be used to treat nephrotic syndrome.
Secondly, this is the most important medication in the treatment of nephrotic syndrome. The commonly used Western medicine treatment for nephrotic syndrome is prednisone. According to the type of disease and the patient's response to prednisone, treatment is strictly carried out according to the doctor's course of treatment. Short courses of treatment are used for initial treatment of simple kidney disease, while medium and long courses of treatment are used for retreatment, recurrent simple kidney disease or nephritic kidney disease.
Finally, this treatment method is aimed at the adverse consequences caused by the aforementioned hormone therapy. Due to the toxic side effects of hormone therapy or the poor efficacy of Western medicine in treating nephrotic syndrome, immunosuppressive agents can be combined for treatment.
Here, the editor needs to remind everyone that although there are many ways to treat nephrotic syndrome from the above, there are many factors that affect the course of treatment. During this period, in addition to actively cooperating with the above treatments, it is also necessary to regulate one's emotions in order to facilitate the treatment of the condition.
