Treat High Blood in Nephrotic Syndrome from Underlying Cause
High blood pressure is a common complication of Nephrotic Syndrome. In return, it can exacerbate renal function. Therefore, it is very important for the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome to keep their blood pressure within the target level.
The kidney performs several vital functions in body. It can filter blood and discharge the excessive water by producing urine. In Nephrotic Syndrome, the permeability of the glomerular filtration membrane increases and can not filter blood normally as before. However, the renal tubule still keeps normally so they can reabsorb water and sodium thus arousing retention of water and sodium. Therefore, the blood flow will increase thus resulting in high blood pressure.
Generally, the doctors prescribe some diuretics and suggest a low-sodium diet to lowering high blood pressure and limit any further damage to kidneys. Those can only remit high blood pressure temporarily, but can not control it from its underlying cause. If the renal function aggravates further, the blood pressure will not be controlled by the conventional medicines.
As mentioned above, the glomeruli injury is the root cause of high blood pressure. Therefore, to lower high blood pressure, the treatment should focus on restoring the impaired glomeruli. Immunotherapy is suggested to the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome.
