What Are The Treatments For Chronic NephritisIn early stage, treatment for chronic nephritis should be targeted on the pathology and take corresponding treatment to prevent immune-mediated inflammation and cell proliferation as well as alleviate kidney sclerosis. The main goal is to delay the vicious progression of kidney function and improve clinical symptoms as well as prevent the occurrence of complications. The following are some common treatment for chronic nephritis, including:

1. Control high blood pressure actively

Controlling high blood pressure is able to prevent kidney function decline or to improve injured kidney function to some extent, which contributes to prevent cardiovascular complications and improve future prognosis.

Treatment for high blood pressure

1.1 non-medicine treatment

Patients with high blood pressure should limit sodium or salt intake. And the amount of sodium intake should be controlled at 80~100mmol and meanwhile hypotensive medicines should be used with sodium controlled

Balance protein and foods with potassium intake

No smoking

Control wine intake

Lose weight

Do some exercise appropriately

1.2 medicine treatment

The common hypotensive medicines include Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor (ACEI), Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (ARB). Because ACEI and ARB has the function of decreasing high blood pressure and reducing blood in urine as well as delaying vicious progression of kidney function, they should be given top priority.

2. Reduce proteinuria

Proteinuria is closely related to decreasing kidney function, so proteinuria should be controlled tightly. For this case, patients with proteinuria can choose ACEI and ARB to alleviate proteinuria. The dose should be a little higher than the dose used to lower high blood pressure. However, you should pay more attention to prevent hypotension from happening.

3. Control the intake of protein and phosphorus

Low protein intake and low phosphorus diet can reduce glomerular hypertension, hyper filtration and hypertransfusion, reaching the result of delaying glomerular sclerosis. Patients with renal function insufficiency and azotemia should limit protein and phosphorus intake and take high quality protein diet.

4. Avoid certain factors which can aggravate kidney damage

Inflammation, hypovolemia, dehydration, fatigue, the balanced disorder between water, electrolyte and acid-base as well as renal toxicity are all factors which may damage kidneys, so people had better not take it or be careful before taking it.

5. Glucocorticoid and cytotoxic drugs

Chronic nephritis is a kind of clinical syndrome involved many diseases, and the pathogenesis, pathological type, clinical symptoms and kidney function have distinguished difference. Thus, glucocorticoid and cytotoxic drugs should be adopted according to its pathogenesis and pathological type.

The above are just some common treatments for chronic nephritis which can alleviate the symptoms and slow down the progression of chronic nephritis into renal failure quickly.
