Hormones such as prednisone, and immunosuppressive agents such as tripterygium glycoside tablets, Mycophenolate Mofetil, and cyclophosphamide, can reduce proteinuria, but they can also cause liver damage, while anoderma lucidum can protect the liver. Most of kidney patients have low immunity, and ganoderma can also enhance immunity.
