Question: I have Nephrotic Syndrome and I have low appetite, what can I do?

What Can I Do with Nephrotic Syndrome and Low AppetiteAnswer: Nephrotic Syndrome can affect your kidney function and cause many symptoms, such as edema, proteinuria and hyperlipemia. Poor appetite is also a common symptom. Though it is not a big problem, it can affect the absorption of nutrients. Your body needs nutrients to keep the normal function. If your appetite is low, your kidneys may be further damaged.
