What is Nephrotic Syndrome? 

Nephrotic syndrome is almost always caused when the blood vessels, responsible for filtering out toxins, in the kidney are damaged. It is a kidney disorder which allows the body to pass out higher than normal amounts of protein in the urine. It also results in lesser amounts of protein in the blood, too much fat and cholesterol in the blood and swelling in the body. In addition to this, it also increases the risk of developing other health conditions and problems. 

What are the signs and symptoms of Nephrotic Syndrome? 

It might not always be clear at once that a person has Nephrotic Syndrome unless he/she takes a blood and urine test. The symptoms that someone with Nephrotic Syndrome might go through, include: 

  • Swelling in feet and ankles 

  • Considerable weight gain

  • Fatigue and tiredness 

  • Foamy urine, because of the presence of protein 

  • Loss of appetite 

What causes Nephrotic Syndrome? 

Nephrotic Syndrome is caused when you have any condition or disease that damages the clusters of tiny blood vessels, known as glomeruli, in your kidneys. These blood vessels are responsible for filtering the blood, as it passes through the kidney. Healthy blood vessels retain the blood protein, which is required by the body. When they are damaged, they allow too much of this protein to pass out of the body through urine, which leads to Nephrotic Syndrome. 

Some of the diseases that can damage these blood vessels and cause Nephrotic Syndrome, include: 

  • Diabetic Kidney Disease 

  • Minimal Change Disease. It is the most common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in children. 

  • Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. It is the most common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in adults. 

  • Amyloidosis. The buildup of amyloid proteins usually damages the filtering of blood vessels in the kidney. 

 What are the treatment options available for Nephrotic Syndrome? 

The first step that your nephrologist will take is the diagnosis of the disease or condition that caused Nephrotic Syndrome. Afterwards, that condition can be treated to control the symptoms and the complication associated with the Nephrotic Syndrome. 

The treatment is administered usually through medications, which include medicines for controlling blood pressure and cholesterol in the body along with medications for helping your body get rid of extra water and aid in reducing the swelling. Some medications, like corticosteroids, can also be given so that it can help with the inflammation caused by some of the Nephrotic Syndrome causing diseases.
