Does Nephrotic Syndrome Cause Cardiovascular Diseases

Does Nephrotic Syndrome Cause Cardiovascular DiseasesNephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder characterized by proteinuria, edema, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. Cardiovascular disease is a class of disease that involve the heart, the blood vessels or both, which is life-threatening. Does Nephrotic Syndrome cause cardiovascular diseases?

Nephrotic Syndrome increases your risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Hyperlipemia is also know as high cholesterol. High cholesterol level slows down blood flow. As a result, substances in blood such as plaque easily builds up in the blood vessels. If they accumulate in the arteries that supply the heart with blood and block the artery, a heart attack occurs.

Besides, some Nephrotic Syndrome patients have high blood pressure due to water and sodium retention or impaired kidney function. High blood pressure also impairs your cardiovascular system, leading to cardiovascular diseases.

How to protect Nephrotic Syndrome patients from cardiovascular diseases?

Hyperlipemia is associated with hypoproteinemia. And hypoproteinemia results from massive protein leakage. Therefore, you should reduce proteinuria timely. Medicines such as steroids, immunosuppressants, ACEI and ARBs are helpful for you to reduce proteinuria and statin helps you lower cholesterol level. In diet, if you do not have kidney function impairment, you should control protein intake into 1.0-1.2 g/kg per day to meet the protein requirement. If you have kidney function impairment, you should restrict protein intake. Besides, you should limit the intake of fat, especially saturated fat and take more fresh vegetables and fruits high in fiber. Salt should be restricted as well. Moreover, you can use therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. They can dilate blood vessels, remove stasis, lower cholesterol level and reduce blood pressure so as to reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases and protect your kidneys.
