Although medicine cannot reverse CKD (chronic kidney disease), it is often used to help treat symptoms and complications, thus slowing further kidney damage. Well, is it enough to treat CKD with steroids?
Steroids are commonly used in the clinic to treat CKD, we have to say that steroids can really treat some types of CKD, like Nephrotic Syndrome and IgA Nephropathy. It can play a relatively obvious effect on controlling protein in urine, but it is not regarded as the long-term method. Steroids treatment can cause may side effects including obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, moon face, osteoporosis, cataract, etc, there is no doubt that these side effects will bring further troubles to patients’ life. If there is a child use steroids, parents have to worry about whether the medications will affect his or her growth and development. What is more, conditions usually relapse in kidney disease patients using steroids.
However, FSGS may not be sensitive to steroids treatment. If so, there still has lots of protein in urine though patients take steroids, and usually the prognosis will not be good. Finally condition develops kidney failure requiring dialysis treatment or kidney transplant.
So , for CKD patients, steroids treatment is not enough. To relieve and control symptoms is necessary and important, but the most important thing for patients is to treat kidney disease itself by repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function. There are no western medications can achieve this, but Chinese medicine therapies can. Nowadays, more and more foreign patients come to China for these Chinese medicine therapies to gradually increase their GFR levels.
