Use of Steroid In Treating Chronic Renal Disease

2013-09-12 15:17

Use of Steroid In Treating Chronic Renal DiseaseChronic Renal Disease refers to kidney disorders that are associated with high blood pressure, increased excretion of protein in urine, fluid retention and so on. Steroid is always used to deal with these problems, but unfortunately, many Chronic Renal Disease patients complain their can not get long-tern remission at all with steroid. Why is this? And is there any alternative treatment in medicine?

Why steroid is used in treating Chronic Renal Disease?

Steroid refers to a group of drugs that are always used to treat antoimmune diseases in medicine. Steroid helps to restrain disease, and this shows obvious effects in relieving symptoms. But disappointedly or unfortunately, long-term use of steroid will destroy patients’ immune system and cause a series of side effects.

For Chronic Renal Disease patients, steroid is used as it can block inflammation in kidney which is the direct cause of kidney damages. In most of the cases, kidney function decreases as kidney tissues are injured, so protecting residual kidney tissues is essential to prevent further increase of kidney function. Steroid can block inflammation and prevent further kidney damages, so it is commonly used in treating Chronic Renal Disease.

Alternative treatment for Chronic Renal Disease besides steroid

Steroid is helpful, but as we have mentioned above, it is harmful to immune system while working. Therefore, an alternative treatment is needed for Chronic Renal Disease patients.

Immunotherapy is a treatment that is highly recommended for Chronic Renal Disease patients. In this treatment, steroid is also used, but it is used temporarily. Generally speaking, when patients’ illness condition is stable, Chinese medicine will be used to improve kidney function. Kidney disease patients experience various discomforts as failed kidney can not function properly. Therefore, as long as kidney function is improved, these discomforts are relieved effectively. Besides, Immunotherapy treats Chronic Renal Disease by adjusting immune system and strengthening kidney, it causes no side effects during the whole treatment process, so it can be used as an alternative treatment for steroid.
