Prevention and Health Care for Membranous Nephropathy

2012-09-28 15:43

What are the effective prevention and health care methods to delay progression of Membranous Nephropathy and improve prognosis of this disease? Clinically, proteinuria, swelling and high blood pressure are typical clinical manifestations of the disease. Generally, women and youngster sufferers with this disease have a better prognosis in comparison with others. Early onset of high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia and presence of renal interstitial fibrosis are also related to poor prognosis. Proper prevention and health care, and keeping close observation for the illness condition are important to slow progression of the disease and avoid risks of an advanced stage of kidney failure.

Clinical diagnosis of Membranous is made based on the evaluation of the pathological type from renal biopsy. From biopsy result the doctors will judge whether there is potential risk of chronic progression of kidney damage, so timely and proper treatment can be adopted to control the illness condition. In addition, active prevention of complications is also essential. Hyperlipidemia, swelling and hypoproteinemia can cause thrombosis and increase risks of stoke. Anti-coagulation treatment should begin when blood plasma protein density is lower than 20g/L.

Prevention of infections. Infections are important inducing factors of Membranous Nephropathy. Hormone treatment prescribed to the patients may lower immunity, increase chances of infections and worsen the illness condition. Hence, in daily life the patients need to avoid any possibility of infections, even if a simple cold.

Active treatment for acute kidney failure. Nephrotic syndrome accompanied by acute onset of kidney failure is life-threatening. The patients may require dialysis treatment to remove wastes and fluid out of the body. Proper and timely treatment will help the patients to recover from the illness condition; however, in poorly treated cases, the patients may progress into chronic kidney failure.

Enough rest and balanced diet. Enough rest and balanced diet give the patient enough energies to resist pathogenic factors and recover from the disease. Avoid over fatigue. Choose high quality animal proteins and supplement sufficient vitamins and other microelements. Also remember to avoid Nephrotoxic medicines.

In the treatment course, do regular urinalysis, blood routine, kidney function and other related tests to examine whether kidney disease has been treated well, degrees of kidney damage or risks of progression. The disease should be well controlled at early stage. Relapses mean that the disease is not treated well and the kidney condition is progressing.
