Medicines and Home Remedies for Nephrotic SyndromeMedicines and home remedies for Nephrotic Syndrome should be based on the causes and symptoms of the disease. It is characterized by an excessive amount of protein in the urine(>3.5g/24h), hypoalbuminemia (low level of albumin in the blood), edema (swelling, typically in the legs and feet) and hypercholesterolemia (high level of cholesterol in the blood).

►Medicines

1. Blood pressure medication. To reduce protein release into the urine, blood pressure medicines may be prescribed.

2. Cholesterol medications. High level of cholesterol is a common symptom of nephrotic syndrome, so cholesterol-reducing medications known as statins are often prescribed to people with the disorder.

3. Diuretics. Diuretics help to increase the fluid output of the kidneys in order to reduce swelling.

3. Medicines for controlling the immune system. Corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive agents may help reduce inflammation.

4. Anticoagulants. People with nephrotic syndrome are at a higher risk of blood clots. Therefore, anticoagulants (blood thinners) may be prescribed to reduce this risk.

What you should note is that before you take all the prescribed medicines under your doctor’s directions. If you have any discomfortable feelings due to the side effects of medicines, let your doctor know immediately.

►Home remedies

1. Chinese herbal tea

If you cannot bear the side effects that western medicines bring, you may as well try drinking a glass of herbal tea, which is made with nettle leaf, dandelion root and salvia.

2. Diet

First of all, because a lot of protein leaks out of the body, people with nephrotic syndrome are more likely to increase the intake of high-quality protein, such as fish, lean meat, egg white, milk, etc. As for the intake of potassium and phosphorus, it should depend on patients’ individual condition.

Secondly, choosing foods that are low in salt, saturated fat and cholesterol is required.

3. Rest

A rest is required when you have severe swelling and large amounts of protein loss in urine.
