Patient: My 4 and half years old daughter is suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome and she is being treated with omnacortil 30.mg, but the swelling is not coming down. It is treating from last two weeks. Please help.
Doctor: hi, so sorry to hear your daughter is suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome. She is so young and there is a long way to go in her life. We will try our best to control her illness and reduce sufferings.
Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder in which large amounts of protein leak into urine due to increased permeability of glomerular filtration membrane. Swelling is its dominant symptom and it is caused by decreased plasma osmotic pressure which occurs when large amounts of protein are lost from urine. Therefore, to achieve the goal of remitting swelling radically, we must repair injured glomerular filtration membrane. Only in this way, can we stop protein from leaking into urine, can we stop the decrease of plasma osmotic pressure and also, can we get swelling alleviated effectively.
In medicine, many medicines like diuretics can be used to treat swelling, but unfortunately, they can not repair injured glomerular filtration membrane, so swelling problem can not be resolved radically. This is the reason why swelling repeated frequently. You daughter is very young, long-term taking of oral medications will affect her physical development and mental development. Here, I’d like to introduce you a herbal treatment which has been used to treat kidney disease patients from more than 60 countries. This treatment is called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It works through a group of herbs which are of functions of expanding blood vessels, blocking inflammation, preventing coagulation and degrading.
Compared with many western medicines, this treatment works slowly, but it causes no discomforts or side effects. Therefore, it is preferable for your daughter. Besides, I know less about your daughter’s illness condition, so I can not make prediction about the possible treatment effects of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy on your daughter. If you are interested in this treatment and want to know more about it, I suggest you send your daughter’s test report to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Nephrologists will help to figure out the possible treatment effects and reply you within 48 hours.
