Hypoproteinemia is the second symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. When serum protein becomes less than 30g/L, we call it Hypoproteinemia. Patient may produce 22.6g serum protein a day which is more than the normal human being. The excess blood albumin leads to the thick blood and form into thrombus. Also, it could reduce the renal function and damage the kidney structure further.

3. HLP (hyperlipidaemia)

It can cause glomerular sclerosis, blood clotting and a serious of complications. Except for albumin, other significant enzymes involved in cholesterol metabolism slip through the glomeruli. That is the reason for high blood cholesterol.

Edema is a familiar symptom. In the early stage, edema often occurs in the legs and feet. After disease developing, it may swells in abdomen and around the eyes in the morning. In later stages, the whole body may swell. Some people gain weight after fluid builds up in their bodies for a long time.
