Nephrotic Syndrome is a group of symptoms caused by various pathogens, characterizing the increase in permeability of glomerular basilemma and the decline of GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). It is not an independent disease. Then what are the specific symptoms of Nephrotic Syndrome?
1. General swelling. Patients with any kinds of Nephrotic Syndrome can have
the symptom of edema with different serious degree. Usually，edema is obvious on
face, lower extremities, scrotum. The edema can last for several weeks, several
months or during the whole course of disease. When patients are infected,
especially by streptococcus, the edema will become worse. Edema is mainly caused
by water and sodium retention and the decrease in plasma colloid osmotic
pressure due to hypoproteinemia. However, how serious the edema is has no
corresponding relationship with the illness condition.
2. Hypertension. Whether patients with Nephrotic Syndrome have the symptom of
hypertension depends on the primary disease and its pathological type. Some
patients with serious water and sodium retention can have transient
hypertension. As the illness condition is relieved, the symptoms will disappear
3. Hypoproteinemia. Hypoproteinemia occurs because the plasma protein
declines. When a large amount of protein is lost and leaks into urine, the
protein in blood will decline. Finally, Hypoproteinemia occurs. The severity is
obviously related with that of proteinuria. Hypoproteinemia is one of the
diagnosis conditions of Nephrotic Syndrome.
4. Proteinuria. Normal glomerular filtration membrane can selectively
filtrate out the plasma protein and effectively block the leakage of most plasma
protein from glomerulus. For healthy people, the volume of protein discharged
into urine is no more than 150mg. a large amount of proteinuria is caused by the
abnormality of glomerular filtration membrane. Proteinuria (>3.5g/24h) is the
main diagnosis condition of Nephrotic Syndrome.
Edema, proteinuria, hypoproteinemia and hypertension--These are the symptoms
of Nephrotic Syndrome. Once people have Nephrotic Syndrome, they should treat it
as early as possible, for timely and effective treatment can prevent it from
damaging kidneys. Even when kidneys are damaged, patients should take some
measure to restore the damaged renal cells so that it will not become much
worse. Therefore, the end-stage kidney disease can be avoided. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has proved effective in restoring the damaged renal cells.
Of course, the effect depends on the illness condition. If you want to know more
