Hyperlipidemia has long been recognized as a complication of Nephrotic Syndrome. According to a study of 20 nephrotic patients, 70 percent were found to have high cholesterol and 85 percent had reduced ratio of HDL cholesterol to TC. If you are affected by this prominent abnormal lipid metabolism, you can understand your situation well and find an effective solution here.
Why does a person with NS develop hyperlipidemia?
As we all know, NS will cause a large Urine Protein of more than 3.5g of
protein lost in the urine each day. This results in a low protein level in the
blood, or hypoalbuminemia (serum albumin<3g/100ml).
Due to decreased effective plasma albumin circulation, there is increased
hepatic lipoprotein synthesis to maintain plasma oncotic pressure. As a result,
high cholesterol and triglycerides can be caused. This hyperlipidemia can
manifest as lipids in the urine, seen as oval fat bodies on microscopic
Treatment option of hyperlipidemia in NS: blood lipid
Long-term high lipid levels can aggravate the kidney damage of NS, thus
accelerating the progression to renal insufficiency and Uremia. Besides,
patient's risk of heart disease and pancreatitis increase.
Therefore, if we want to treat hyperlipidemia of NS effectively, we must
clear up the excess harmful substances in the blood so as to create a clean
internal environment and ensure the best treatment effect.
Blood lipid purification is one item of our immune clearance treatment aimed
at alleviating high blood lipid levels. With the application of advanced
equipment and technology, patient's LDL will be eliminated out of the body.
There are also several things you can do to control your symptoms, such as
switch to a low-fat diet, control your weight, do regular aerobic exercise, quit
smoking, avoid or limit alcohol, etc.
With the combination of medical treatment and lifestyle modification,
hyperlipidemia in NS can be well treated. You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
