What Stage of Kidney Disease Is Nephrotic Syndrome

What Stage of Kidney Disease Is Nephrotic SyndromeIn certain stage of kidney disease, Nephrotic Syndrome may occur. Nephrotic Syndrome is not a disease but a group of kidney diseases, which is characterized by massive proteinuria, severe edema, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. What stage of kidney disease is Nephrotic Syndrome? Now let’s have a look.

How to diagnose Nephrotic Syndrome?

Not all kidney disease can cause Nephrotic Syndrome, so it is difficult to say what stage of kidney disease is Nephrotic Syndrome. There are some tests and procedures you should do to diagnose Nephrotic Syndrome.

-Urine test

Collect urine samples over 24 hours. If you have Nephrotic Syndrome, the protein in urine is more than 3.5 g/d.

-Blood test

If you have Nephrotic Syndrome, plasma albumin is less than 30 g/L. Hypoproteinemia can cause high cholesterol level. Besides, creatinine level and BUN level may be also beyond the normal range.


A kidney biopsy may be used to make sure which kind of kidney disease causes Nephrotic Syndrome and then suit the remedy to the case.

How to treat Nephrotic Syndrome?

Most Nephrotic Syndrome patients get a remission after steroid treatment, because steroids can inhibit kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage. But the problem is that Nephrotic Syndrome often relapses. In our hospital, there are many natural therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. They can improve blood circulation to ensure the damaged kidneys to get enough oxygen and nutrients. They can also combine with the immune complexes, split them and then discharge them out of the body. Moreover, they can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. With systemic treatment, your damaged kidneys can gradually regain their ability and then you do not worry about the frequent relapse.

Nephrotic Syndrome should be controlled as early as possible, or it may speed up the progression to kidney failure. If you have any question, please leave a message below.
