A Good Prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome Needs To Prevent Complications
Nephrotic Syndrome is a kind of integrated renal diseases caused by glomerular lesion. It can occur in children, young people and the elderly. The prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome varies greatly among individuals, and its complications are important factors affecting the prognosis.
“Three high and one low” is typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome.
Nephrotic Syndrome is NS for short. It is divided into three types including primary, secondary and hereditary type according to types of disease. Nephrotic syndrome clinically has the typical symptoms of "three high and one low", that is, high protein in urine, severe edema, hyperlipidemia and hypoproteinemia. These blood and metabolic symptoms affect other organs.
Nephrotic Syndrome has lots of complications and you need to take active treatment.
Diabetes and cardiovascular disease can lead to complications of kidney disease. Also when kidneys are damaged, other organs will be affected as well and various complications will occur. Without timely treatment, it can delay treatment and probably threaten your life.
Let’s have a look at common complications of Nephrotic Syndrome:
One of the symptoms is proteinuria. Due to a large amount of immunoglobin are lost in the urine, the formation of antibodies is blocked and the immunity is weakened, which can easily cause various inflammations and infection. In severe case, sepsis can even be induced.
2. Thrombosis and embolism
Hyperlipidemia increases blood viscosity in patients with nephrotic syndrome. As symptoms develop, patients need strong diuretics and large amounts of glucocorticoids for remission.The condition of high blood coagulation is particularly prone to thrombosis and coronary heart disease. And coronary heart disease has become the main cause of death of Nephrotic Syndrome patients.
3. Acute kidney failure
Due to the symptoms of "three high and one low", patients with renal syndrome are often in the state of low blood volume and high coagulation, and the use of antihypertensive drugs and diuretics at the same time, will reduce the amount of renal blood perfusion, resulting in reduced glomerular filtration rate and causing acute renal failure.
Early diagnosis is the key to nephrotic syndrome treatment. For patients with mild disease, early detection of the cause, and intervention treatment, can make the condition better. In order to prevent the recurrence of Nephrotic Syndrome, you should take active prevention for the above complications.
