How Nephrotic Syndrome Affects A Person’s LifeNowadays more and more people get kidney disease. It does not only affect your work, but also your normal life. Nephrotic Syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder which is consisted of a group of symptoms, namely proteinuria, swelling, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. How does Nephrotic Syndrome affects a person’s life?

Nephrotic Syndrome deprives your right to enjoy food.

Kidney is a blood purification organ. When it is healthy, it can remove waste products from the blood. But with Nephrotic Syndrome, their function impairs. In order to reduce the production of waste products, we should limit the intake of food, especially junk food. Besides, we should limit the intake of protein to reduce protein leakage and restrict salt intake to alleviate swelling. Because of those restriction, diet may become tasteless.

With Nephrotic Syndrome, you should keep some sports away.

If you have severe edema, you should stay in bed to have a good rest. Even if all the symptoms are brought under control, you should avoid strenuous exercise, such as football, basketball and some other sports. Because they may make you very tired, which is a trigger to the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. But you can do some gentle exercise, such as jogging, walking, yoga and tai chi.

Nephrotic Syndrome may make you lose interest in doing things.

When your kidneys are impaired, they can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells so that you feel tired easily. When you are weak, you don’t want to do anything, even if you are interested in it before.

Nephrotic Syndrome may also change your mood.

Conventional treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is steroid treatment. Steroids are helpful in eliminating symptoms, but they have many side effects, one of which is mood change. Your figure will also change due to steroid.
