How Do You Nurse A Patient with Nephrotic Syndrome

How Do You Nurse A Patient with Nephrotic SyndromeHow do you nurse a patient with Nephrotic Syndrome? If one of your family members gets Nephrotic Syndrome, you have to know how to take care of him or her. In the following, let’s have a general look.

Mental nursing for Nephrotic Syndrome

Unhealthy emotion, such as anxiety, sorrow, depression, fear and so on is not good for kidney recovery. Besides, it can lower immunity so as to expose you to more diseases, such as infections, which can cause the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. As caregivers, we should encourage them and help them to set up confidence to fight against the disease.

Clinical nursing for Nephrotic Syndrome

If the patients have severe edema and massive proteinuria, you should ask them to have a good rest in bed, avoid strenuous activity and change position frequently on bed. If the patients have facial edema, you should give them a high pillow. For patients with renal insufficiency, the accumulated waste products such as urea may stimulate mouth mucosa, leading to dental ulcer. In such case, let them rinse the mouth frequently and keep the air clean.

Diet nursing for Nephrotic Syndrome

For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they should follow a renal-friendly diet, which can not only improve the nutriture, while not decreasing the workload of kidneys. The general diet guideline for Nephrotic Syndrome is to reduce the intake of protein, supplement enough calory, restrict the intake of fat and sodium, etc. Because patients often have poor appetite, we should cook them delicious.

Medication nursing for Nephrotic Syndrome

According to the medical condition of Nephrotic Syndrome patients, we should give them different medicines, such as diuretics to alleviate edema, ACEI and ARBs to lower blood pressure, steroids to eliminate proteinuria, etc. Those medicine has side effects, so you should pay attention to them.
