What is Nephrotic Syndrome?

Nephrotic syndrome is a type of kidney disease that leads to loss of protein in the urine and swelling of the face (often the eyes) or body (often around the genitals). It is most common in children younger than 6 years old and is more prevalent in boys. Nephrotic syndrome is often treated with steroids.

What is Urinary tract infection (UTI)?

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is usually caused by intestinal bacteria, such as E. coli, normally found in feces. These bacteria can cause infections anywhere in the urinary tract, including the kidneys. Most UTIs occur in the lower urinary tract, in the bladder and urethra. UTIs occur in both boys and girls. In school-age children, girls are more likely to develop UTIs than boys; this may be because girls have shorter urethras than boys.

Relationship between UIT and Nephrotic Syndrome

As mentioned above, the bacteria that cause urinary tract infection can also attack the kidneys. When the kidneys are damaged, they cannot work normally to reabsorb the protein, leading to large amounts of proteins leaks out the body. That’s why Nephrotic Syndrome is accompanied by urinary tract infection.

Management of urinary tract infection and Nephrotic Syndrome

Medication can indeed help the patient to relieve discomforts quickly and effectively, while they are not much safe and cannot solve the underlying problem.

2. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Nephrotic Syndrome patients just need to lie on the bed, and then the doctor will put the medical fluid bags under the kidney area. The effective ingredients will permeate into the kidney lesion directly. By expanding the blood vessels, improving blood circulation and repairing the renal intrinsic cells, this therapy can treat kidney disease from the root.
