Increased Triglyceride and Cholesterol Level in Nephrotic Syndrom

 Why does troglyceride and cholesterol level increase in Nephrotic SyndromeWhy does troglyceride and cholesterol level increase in Nephrotic Syndrome? With the diagnosis of Nephrotic Syndrome, patients are always told to limit fat intake, as they have lipid abnormalities. Common lipid abnormalities include high level of strogelyceride and high cholesterol. Some patients have both these two substances increased in their blood, but some of them may only have increased strogelyceride or increased cholesterol. Why is this? How does they related with each other?

In cases of Nephrotic Syndrome, appearance of lipid abnormalities is associated with hypoproteinemia which is resulted from serious leakage of protein. Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney problem marked by increased permeability of glomerular filtration membrane. Once being affected by this illness, large amounts of protein will leak into urine. This is the reason why Nephrotic Syndrome patients have massive proteinuria. Also, due to the severe leakage, protein in blood decreases fastly, leading to hypoproteinemia. When the protein in blood is not enough to meet the basic demand of our body, liver begins to synthesize lipoprotein, which can cause increased cholesterol level in blood. As for high level of triglyceride, it is mainly due to metabolic disorder caused by kidney problem. Though Nephrotic Syndrome is an illness regarding kidney, if not controlled well, many of our body systems will be affected seriously and metabolic disorder of triglyceride is just one of them.

When facing high triglyceride and cholesterol level in blood, Nephrotic Syndrome patients need to limit fat intake, as to to avoid worsening this condition. However, if they really want to get this problem solved effectively, treatment need to start from kidney, because kidney damage is the root cause of this problem. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a good treatment option for Nephrotic Syndrome, not only because it can improve kidney function, but also because of its safety which is completely different from hormone treatment.
