Edema is a common manifestation in Nephrotic Syndrome. Some patients may have hydrothorax which can affect the breath and put much burden to heart and even cause death. Therefore, it is quite essential to eliminating edema in Nephrotic Syndrome. Primarily, let's see the causes of edema.
Kidneys play a vital role in our body and they are responsible for excreting
metabolic wastes and excessive fluid as well as keep the useful substances such
as proteins remain in blood. However, in Nephrotic Syndrome, the renal filters
glomeruli are impaired and their filtration membrane loses their normal barrier
function so they can not prevent the leakage of protein into urine.
Once the protein level in blood decreases, it will result in deceased plasma
osmotic pressure. As a result, the fluid in blood will penetrate into
subcutaneous tissue thus leading to edema.
In addition, in Nephrotic Syndrome, the kidneys can not excrete fluid
normally as before, which can cause much fluid to build up in body thus
resulting in edema.
To avoid the damage to the patients, they patients need to have diuretic
therapy and water intake to reduce the accumulation of fluid in body. However,
these can only be considered as assistant treatment methods. As the edema in
Nephrotic Syndrome is associated with protein leakage, the patients should take
treatment to repair the damaged glomeruli to stop protein leakage.
has a favorable effect in treating Nephrotic Syndrome.
Immunotherapys are a group of undifferentiated primitive cells that have the
potential of long-term, self-replication, high proliferation and
multiple-directional differentiation. After the Immunotherapy are infused into
body through vein, they can differentiate into renal functional cells and repair
the damaged renal tissues. Once they are paired very well, the kidneys will
recover the normal filtration function and be able to prevent the protein
leakage into urine. Afterwards, the edema will disappear.
