Nephrotic syndrome is caused by various causes is introduced, with massive proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, edema, hyperlipidemia and other symptoms of clinical characteristics of a group of symptoms, according to its causes can be pided into primary nephrotic syndrome and secondary nephrotic syndrome. This station will introduce the hormone commonly used during the reduction stage for nephrotic syndrome.
The reduction of the treatment phase, usually with a large dose of hormone for 8 weeks will be reduced, the reduction of the original weekly daily dose of 10% adults per week 5mg.
If after 8 weeks of high-dose therapy did not improve, or even worse, at the same time in the presence of carefully ruled out factors influencing the curative effect such as infection, drug use will not be effective to estimate (steroid type), should quickly reduce the dosage, so that short-term disabled, if possible, send the best hospitals for renal biopsy.
If the treatment of nephrotic syndrome after obtained partial remission (3g/d < proteinuria or was reduced by more than half, edema and other symptoms eased), while hormone withdrawal to small dose (0.5mg/kg daily for adults, children's daily 1mg/kg), changed to two days in the morning meal service charge.
If the large dose of hormone is rapid or not enough, it will be relieved in 6 weeks, and then it can be reduced by 2 weeks after the original dose is stabilized.
If the disease is minimal change nephropathy, 90% of the pediatric patients will be completely relieved after 4 weeks, so they usually take 4 weeks and then take 2 weeks, then they can enter the decrement stage. Adults are less developed and usually have to use hormones for 8 weeks to determine if the hormone is effective in this nephrotic syndrome.
