How Severe Does Nephrotic Syndrome Get Because of Suppressed Immune System

How Severe Does Nephrotic Syndrome Get Because of Suppressed Immune SystemSteroids and immunosuppressants are often used by Nephrotic Syndrome patients to inhibit kidney inflammation and decease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage.

-Get infections frequently

Our immune system is how we fight off virus and bacteria. A poor immune system can not resist the invading virus and bacteria, so they come into your body, leading to inflammation.

With blood circulation, they come into kidneys and deposit, triggering inflammatory response in your kidneys. And then Nephrotic Syndrome recurs. That may be why Nephrotic Syndrome patients have frequent relapse. Frequent relapse speeds up kidney failure.

-Increase the risk of cancer

Immune system also helps our body suppresses the growth of tumor cells, so suppressed immune system increases your risk of cancer and tumor so as to threaten your life.

-Feel tired easily

With a suppressed immune system, you will feel weak most of the time, which may refrain you from enjoying the normal life and work.
