There are about 60% patients can enjoy a good controlling after taking this medicine. However, there are 40% left with poor effect. Among these 40%, two complicate situations will be:

Steroid resistance: this kind of nephritic syndrome is hard to deal with. Even we use full dosage of glococorticoid, protein in urine has no change.

Steroid dependent: this kind of condition refers to that using medicine is effective, but once you reduce dosage or stop medicine, disease relapse soon.
