Poor Prognostic Indicators for Nephrotic Syndrome

Poor Prognostic Indicators for Nephrotic SyndromeWhat are the poor prognostic indicators for Nephrotic Syndrome? Nephrotic Syndrome is a Chronic Kidney Disease which may last for decades from diagnosis to kidney failure stage. It is a a nonspecific kidney problem, so patients suffer differently. In some cases, patients experience less and mild discomforts and with medical treatment, they can live their rest life well. However, for some others, they may suffer from kidney failure and various complications. Well, for a n individual with Nephrotic Syndrome, what are the poor prognostic indicators?

1. Uncontrolled proteinuria

Proteinuria refers to urine with excess protein (more than 150mg/24h). It is the typical clinical manifestation of Nephrotic Syndrome and always accompanied with fluid retention, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. The severity of proteinuria is a prognostic indicator and usually the more protein in urine, the poorer the prognosis is.

2. Insensitivity to hormone

SDNS (Steroid-Dependent Nephrotic Syndrome) refers to Nephrotic Syndrome that can be brought under control with hormone. Compared with patients suffering from SDNS, patients who are insensitive to hormone usually have a poorer prognosis.

3. High blood pressure

High blood pressure is not a common symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome, but some patients indeed find their blood pressure increase when illness develops to severe stage. Kidney contains many tiny blood vessels. Long-term high blood pressure damage these blood vessels, and thus worse kidney condition.
