Chinese Medicine Helps MCD Patients Get rid of SteroidsMinimal Change Disease (MCD) is the most common force of Nephrotic Syndrome in children. 28 years old Mr.Yang was diagnosed with such a disorder 11 years ago. During this period of time, he had taken steroids, but his disease was not well controlled, and he suffered from a lot of side effects. In our hospital, about half month’s treatment, his condition got great improvement. Now go on reading to learn more his condition.

Mr.Yang was diagnosed with chronic glomerulonephritis when he was 17 years old and he was still a senior high school student. He had eyelid swelling and leg swelling. After a period of Huangkui capsule treatment, his swelling disappeared and he went hospital for home.

Half a year later, his swelling recurred. He went to hospital for check-up, which showed that his urine protein was 3+ and 24h urine protein was 4.4g. After renal biopsy, he was diagnosed with Minimal Change Disease.

After about 20 days’ steroid treatment, his urine protein and swelling faded away, thereby he was discharged from hospital.

From then on he had been taken medications, but swelling came back now and then, and his urine fluctuated as well. When his parents heard that Chinese medicine can treat this disease well, they took Yang to our hospital.

After examination, Yang’s proteinuria was 2+ and 24h urine protein was 1.85g. And he had severe swelling and pleural effusion.

Via communication with Yang and his parents, we got to know that their biggest hope was to reduce the intake of steroids. Because Yang had taken steroids for a decade of years. During this course, not only was urine protein and swelling still there, but also a lot of side effects come out.

But because of long-term steroid treatment, Yang had great dependence on such a medicine. If he wanted to taper steroid, he should use Chinese medicine to clear toxins out of renal cells and blood, and then restore the function of kidneys.

After a period of Chinese medicine treatment, he began to taper steroids. After examination, his 24h urine protein lowered to 0.08g within the normal range.
