They results from sever damages on glomerular filtration membrane and if untreated, illness progresses quickly. Well, apart from them, can Nephrotic Syndrome also cause anemia? What are the symptoms of anemia due to Nephrotic Syndrome?

Nephrotic Syndrome is a common kidney problem that can appear not only in adults, but also in children. It does not refers to an exact illness, but a group of clinical manifestation, say massive proteinuria, edema, hyperlipemia nad hypoproteinemia here. That is to say, as long as an individual is tested to have these abnormalities, he can be suspected to has Nephrotic Syndrome.

Renal anemia refers to low red blood cell account in blood due to kidney problem. It appears easily when kidney problem develops to end stage, because kidney is responsible for secreting EPO(erythropoietin), an important element for the synthesis of red blood cell. When kidneys are damaged severely, less EPO are produced and also the synthesis of red blood cell decreases. Under such a condition, renal anemia appears easily.

To be honest, Nephrotic Syndrome does not cause anemia at all in the early stage. However, with the deterioration of illness, kidney tissues are injured more and more severely, which may give rise to renal anemia. Therefore, for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, the best way is to prevent anemia is to stop illness progress.

Besides, red blood cells are by far the most abundant cells in the blood and help to transport oxygen throughout the body. Owing to red blood cells, our blood looks red and we feel energic. However, when red blood cell account is lower than the reference value, we will suffer from a series of discomforts like lack of energy, feeling tired, cold or breathless on exertion, pale complexion and even sweating.

In Nephrotic Syndrome, anemia also accelerates illness condition. Therefore, once renal anemia appears, medical treatment is needed to bring it under control.
