Membranous Glomerulonephritis is a serious pathological category in Nephrotic Syndrome. If left untreated, it will cause a series of complications thus resulting in more damage and accelerating the renal function decline. So, how to relieve the complications of Membranous Glomerulonephritis?
The glomeruli in kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood and removing extra fluid and toxins from body. Each kidneys contain more than one million nephrons. However, in Glomerulonephritis, the glomeruli are inflamed and fail to filter blood properly as before. This causes an accumulation of waste and fluid in the body, thus resulting in swelling. For systemic blood circulation and gravity, the fluid will build up in lower part like feet and ankle.
By filtering blood, kidneys can discharge the wastes out of body, but keep the useful substances in blood and return them to systemic circulation. In Glomerulonephritis, the diseased kidneys fail to do so. Thus, a large amount of proteins pass through glomerular filtration membrane and end up in urine.An inadequate amount of protein in urine can cause fluid in blood vessels to infiltrate into tissues, thus leading to swelling.
Besides swelling in ankle and feet, the patients also develop dark colored urine, foam in urine, high blood pressure, fatigue and decrease in urine output.
The focus of Chinese Medicines is put on the repairing of the endothelial cells and mesangial cells. The measures taken are expanding the blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrade the toxins. It is found that this method is effective in repairing the glomerular endothelial cells and mesangial cells. As long as they are well repaired, the disease condition will become better, and the recurrence chance will be less.
