    Expert Answer

    Are There Any Remedies For Facial Swelling In Nephrotic SyndromeHi, thank you for your consulting. Please do not worry. We can send you some suggestion for her condition.

    You first need to know the radical cause of facial swelling in nephrotic syndrome?

    Nephrotic Syndrome causes a problem with the kidneys’ filters, called glomeruli. Glomerli are tiny blood vessels in the kidneys that remove wastes and excess fluids from the blood and send them to the bladder as urine. When glomeruli are damaged, proteins from the blood, such as albumin, can leak into the urine. Albumin is a protein that acts like a sponge, drawing extra fluid from the body into the bloodstream. When albumin leaks into the urine, the blood fails to absorb extra fluid from the body, causing edema.

    From the above analysis, we can see the root cause of facial swelling is damaged glomeruli.

    Why does facial swelling still exist even with prednisone?

    Predinsone is strong anti-inflammatory medicines. It acts to reduce swelling in the body caused by nephrotic syndrome but needs to be taken over a long period of time. Also prednisone can cause some side effects like weight gain, unusual fatigue or weakness, abdominal pain, severe facial swelling and blurred vision. As for your girl, she is so young and should not take prednisone for a long time. More importantly, prednisone can not repair injured glomeruli so facial swelling can not be relieved effectively.

    What is the remedy for facial swelling in Nephrotic Syndrome?

    The radical way for facial swelling in nephrotic syndrome is to repair injured glomeruli. Only in this way can facial swelling disappear completely. Here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment which is a systematic Chinese medicine therapy including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Steaming Therapy, etc. The application of Chinese medicines is used to remove toxins and wastes out of your body first. This can set up a clean blood environment for repairing injured kidney tissues and improving renal function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. Through these functions, damaged glomeruli can be restored gradually and then facial swelling disappears effectively. No relapse occurs. Also there are no side effects from Toxin-Removing Treatment. More and more patients come to China for treatment.

    Toxin-Removing Treatment can eliminate facial swelling in Nephrotic Syndrome but the patient needs to come to China for treatment . If you can come to China, you can consult us via and 008613463017175.
