Kidney Disease Relapsed due to Catching A Cold: What to DoFor some kidney patients, their disease relapses due to some factors, such as catching a cold. What to do? Today let’s have a look at Liu’s story.

Liu is 8 years old. 4 years ago, he was diagnosed with kidney disease, because of eye lid swelling and leg swelling after catching a cold. After a period of steroid treatment, proteinuria turned negative, but after being discharged from hospital, it relapsed for many times. Later, his parents took him to the local Chinese medicine hospital to take oral Chinese medicine and steroid for treatment, but proteinuria always fluctuated from 1+ to 3+. Losing confidence to the treatment, his parents took Liu to our hospital.

At the first sight of Liu, we found that he had severe swelling. He could hardly open his eyes, there was a hole when pressing his legs. Test report showed his urine protein was 4+, occult blood 2+ and 24h urine protein was 13.87g. Besides, his immunity was very low, because his IgG was only 0.49g.

Though swelling disappeared and proteinuria lowered, his immunity was not improved greatly. The next treatment will focus on strengthening immunity by Chinese medicine therapies such as acupuncture and moxibustion. Only when immunity is boosted can he resist the disease and reduce the chance of infections and catching a cold.
