Loss of Hair Due To Nephrotic SyndromeWill Nephrotic Syndrome cause hair loss? If yes, how? If no, why some Nephrotic Syndrome patients complain they have severe loss of hair? Here, we will give an introduction about this topic.

Will Nephrotic Syndrome cause loss of hair?

Nephrotic Syndrome is a problem regarding kidney. It is said people with weak kidney experience hair loss easily, compared with healthy people. However, this is not the major cause for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to have severe loss of hair, instead, medicine like prednisone is the real cause.

Prednisone is corticoid with function of anti-inflammation and antiallergic and so on. It is a commonly used medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome and help to control illness condition effectively. Prednisone is helpful, but long-term take of this medicine will cause lots of side effects. Hair loss is just one of the common side effects of prednisone. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, aside from hair loss, they also run high risk for eye pain, decreased or blurred vision, sore throat, sneezing, cough and infection and so on. All these discomforts can occur as a the result of long-term taking of prednisone.

Natural treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

Nephrotic Syndrome progresses to kidney failure if left uncontrolled, so it is necessary for patients to bring their illness condition under control. Prednisone shows treatment effects in treating Nephrotic Syndrome, but it is not the best option, especially for children with nephrotic syndrome, due to its severe side effects. For this reason, a natural treatment is urgently needed.

Immunotherapy is a relatively new treatment that can be used to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. It is not a simple medicine or surgery, but a treatment process that combines western medicines and Chinese medicines. We know western medicines and Chinese medicines have their own advantages in treating kidney disease and they show different treatment effects. By combining the advantages of them, treatment effects can be increased greatly and kidney function can be improved well. As long as kidney function is improved, there is no need for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to rely on prednisone. And also, side effects like hair loss are avoided effectively.
