Prolonged hormone therapy often causes chronic nephritis patients to panic and suffer. Many patients cannot tolerate this long recovery period, so they mistakenly believe in various folk remedies. There are numerous traditional remedies for treating chronic nephritis circulating on the internet, with many boasting that they are simple and easy to use, saving time and money. How should patients be treated?
Patients with Chronic Nephritis Should Be Careful in Choosing Prescriptions
The so-called folk prescription generally refers to local medicinal prescriptions that have no medical basis, most of which are not recorded in medical books, but are widely circulated and have not been marketed. The reason why it is called a folk prescription is that some patients have achieved remission or recovery through this method, but we should also note that most patients have no effect after using folk prescription, even leading to rapid deterioration of the condition and death.
Not all folk remedies are good and effective. They may indeed have great therapeutic effects on some people, but they may not necessarily be suitable for you. Therefore, folk remedies for chronic nephritis should not be fully trusted and should be carefully selected.
1. Partial prescriptions cannot be generalized
"Everyone's symptoms vary, and the treatment methods and drugs should also be different. This is why traditional Chinese medicine emphasizes dialectical treatment. The prescription is for dead and the person is alive, and a partial prescription should apply to everyone.".
2. There are many fake prescriptions and medicines
Some itinerant doctors in society seize the eagerness of the vast majority of patients to seek medical treatment and exaggerate the effect of folk remedies. In fact, most of them are fake drugs. In fact, traditional Chinese medicine has strict requirements for formula and preparation technology, and most of the true folk recipes are not disseminated.
3. Credit bias may delay the illness
For example, some traditional remedies for treating chronic nephritis and edema, such as kansui, euphorbia, etc., achieve the goal of reducing swelling through severe diarrhea and expelling water. This is not only detrimental to the treatment of chronic nephritis, but also masks the condition, leading to missed early diagnosis and the best treatment opportunity.
4. This prescription may aggravate the condition
As mentioned earlier, most of the folk remedies are indigenous medicines that have not undergone formal testing, have unknown chemical components, and are likely to contain nephrotoxicity. Once used, they may exacerbate the condition.
Experts remind patients with kidney disease to seek treatment from a regular hospital, and do not trust folk customs and folk remedies, especially not to delay normal treatment due to the use of folk remedies.
