Is Nephrotic Syndrome Contagious

Is Nephrotic Syndrome Contagious“My boyfriend has Nephrotic Syndrome. He relapsed last August. Is it contagious?” When there is someone around you with Nephrotic Syndrome, you may have the similar question. In this article, I will tell you whether Nephrotic Syndrome contagious or not.

First, let’s have a general knowledge of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Nephrotic Syndrome is a group of symptoms consisted of severe edema, massive proteinuria, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. It results from the damage to glomeruli, the filter of body, which can remove toxins from the blood, while retaining the useful substances such as protein and red blood cells. Many kinds of kidney disease can cause Nephrotic Syndrome, such as Minimal Change Disease, FSGS, Diabetic Nephropathy, etc. These kidney disease is caused by abnormal immune system. Therefore, kidney disease is not contagious. Nephrotic Syndrome is not, either.

How to keep the Nephrotic Syndrome patients healthy?

If your friends or family members have Nephrotic Syndrome, you should know how to keep them healthy.


They should follow a renal-friendly diet, namely low protein, low salt, high fibers and vitamins, so when you eat meal with them, you should know what they can eat and what they are not allowed.


Nephrotic Syndrome patients can do exercise when their state of illness is stable, but they should avoid strenuous exercise and overwork. Because they may cause relapse.


You should supervise and urge them to receive treatment aggressively. Nephrotic Syndrome can be brought under control with steroid treatment, but steroids often have many serious side effects, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. If you want to live a normal life with him, you should ask him to receive some natural treatment. Here we recommend TCM therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, foot bath, circle therapy, enema therapy, etc. They can remove the immune complexes from the blood to eliminate kidney inflammation. They can also repair the damaged kidneys. In this way, Nephrotic Syndrome is controlled from the root and then you won’t worry about its relapse.
