When can steroids be stopped?

Some patients only need to take steroids for half a year, some need several years, and some others need to take steroids for life.

Most kidney patients need steroids for 1-1.5 years. If the illness is mild and the effect of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is good, steroids can be stopped after about half a year’s treatment. If recurrence occurs in the course of treatment, the dosage of steroids needs to be increased again, then gradually reduced, and the time will be longer. Some kidney patients, such as Lupus Nephritis patients, have frequent active periods and take steroids for life.

When to stop steroids needs to be decided by illness condition changes in the future. What you need to do now is to reduce or adjust the dosage according to your condition.

Can I eat XX?

Take watermelon for an example, it is not a food high in potassium, but There are still many patients with hyperkalemia caused by excessive intake of watermelon. Actually you should pay more attention to: how much can I eat XX?

How to treat proteinuria from the root?

Almost all internal diseases can not be cured. Only lobar pneumonia can be cured in the whole book of Internal Medicine.

Some kidney patients have been cured clinically after several months of treatment, and have not recurred after several years of follow-up. There may be such good results in patients with minimal change disease, membranous nephropathy, mesangial hyperplasia, IgA Nephropathy and other kidney disease. Doctors are trying to help patients achieve this state, and can not judge the outcome in advance when the treatment is not over. It is more realistic to communicate with doctors and reduce urinary protein patiently and prevent recurrence.
