Is Nephrotic Syndrome Life Threatening

Is Nephrotic Syndrome Life ThreateningNephrotic Syndrome is a sign that your kidneys are not working properly. Is it life threatening? Many patients can not help asking such a question as long as they are diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome.

Nephrotic Syndrome may threaten your life without timely and effective treatment.

If your medical treatment is not effective enough to stop the kidney damage. Nephrotic Syndrome can cause many complications to threaten your life. For example:

-Pulmonary oedema

Oedema is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome, which results from too much protein leakage into the urine and water and sodium retention. Those fluid may build up in the lung, leading to pulmonary oedema, which may affect your breath. If left uncontrolled, it is life threatening.

-Heart failure

Heart failure is common complication of kidney disease. Because Nephrotic Syndrome patients usually have high cholesterol level and high blood pressure, which increases their risk of heart failure.

With good treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome is not life threatening.

In fact, those complications can be avoided with proper treatment. As long as you are diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, you should seek treatment as early as possible. Conventional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is to use steroid and other immunosuppressants to decrease the body’s immune system response so as to reduce protein leakage.
