Question: Ma mom is suffering from Nephritic Syndrome. She has protein of 440 mg/L in her urine .She has been given steroids, she’s getting side effects like weight gain, fat accumulation in the neck. Is this life threatening?
Answer: It is honored to answer this questions, but I am sorry that I cannot give you an exact answer since what you described for me is not enough. First of all, side effects of steroids are always related to overdose and long term of usage. Weight gain is due to fluid retention, which is sometimes be fatal if too much fluid deposit in the lungs. Fat accumulation in the neck is very serious and it indicate the arteries may be also blocked.
The most important thing you can do for your mother is to find natural alternatives to steroids for Nephrotic Syndrome. I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We choose herbs that can purify the blood and improve kidney function. On one hand, effective ingredients in TCM can eliminate wastes and toxins in the blood, so blood circulation increases. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. Thereby, protein can be reabsorbed adequately, and proteinuria can be reduced.
