It mainly refers to glucocorticoid, which has the function of adjusting the biosynthesis and metabolism of sugar, fat and protein, and also has the function of anti-inflammation. And it is the first choice drug to reduce proteinuria.

However, steroids are like a coin with two sides. On one hand, it can help reduce proteinuria and control the disease from getting worse. One the other hand, it has a lot of side effects.

Today we will talk about what happens to your body after using steroids.

1. Changes in appearance

After taking steroids, people tend to have an increased appetite, so they usually gain weight. And steroids can also lead to psychosomatic obesity, moon face and buffalo backs, making people appear fatter. The symptoms usually disappear after the hormone stops.

If patients care more about their appearance change, some Chinese patent medicine can be used together to alleviate the side effects.

2. Osteoporosis

Long-term use of steroids will accelerate the loss of calcium in the body. Due to calcium deficiency, patients are prone to osteoporosis and femoral head necrosis, which is a serious consequence. If you have hip joint pain, seek medical treatment in time to resolve the problem as soon as possible!

3. Stomach trouble

Steroids can lead to increased acid secretion, damage the gastric mucosa, and induce and aggravate duodenal ulcers.

4. Vision loss

Steroids can increase the risk of glaucoma and cataracts, so take regular eye exams after using the steroids.

5. High blood pressure

Steroids cause sodium ions to accumulate in the body, increasing the risk of high blood pressure.

6. Susceptible to cold and infection

Steroids can reduce immunity in people with kidney disease, which makes them more susceptible to catching a cold. While catching a cold can make illness condition worse.

Therefore, it is suggested that kidney patients take steroids, together with Chinese medicine jinshuibao, bailing and other drugs to improve immunity.
