Do you want to take steroids for long-term? Of course not. Right? For steroid-dependence Minimal Change Disease patients, what to do? In this article, let’s have a read on Ye’s story.

Ye is a 12 years old boy, but he has been very familiar with such a disease, because he has been with it for 6 years. 6 years ago, he was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome after heavy swelling of legs. He was permitted in hospital and had 3+ protein in urine and occult blood 3+. After that she underwent kidney biopsy. It was shown Minimal Change Disease (MCD). From then on, he began to take steroids for treatment, which lasted 6 years and 7 months.

In these years, he kept steroid treatment, but his urine protein always fluctuated from 2+ to 3+. Under the introduction of a friend, his father got to know a doctor of our hospital and got into touch.

When Ye came to our hospital, his urine protein was 3+, occult blood was +-, and 24h urine protein was 2.54g. Besides, his immunity was very low. His immune globulin was only 6.32g. He was steroid-dependence and steroid-resistance.

His poor immunity and congenital defect of his kidneys are the main causes of kidney inflammation and kidney function impairment.

In the following, Chinese medicine therapies such as Foot Bath, Hot Compress Therapy, Oral Chinese medicine and so on were applied into his treatment. On one hand, they could remove massive waste products out of body via urine output, bowel movement and skin pores, providing a good condition for kidney self-healing and other medication application. On the other hand, Chinese medicine can help him adjust the inner environment and provide the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery as well as enhance immunity.
