Top 4 Complications of Nephrotic Syndrome

Top 4 Complications of Nephrotic SyndromeWhat is the common complications of Nephrotic Syndrome? There goes a saying in China that diseases come on horseback, but go away on foot. It means that you develop disease quickly, but have to spend long time to recover. Nephrotic Syndrome is such a disease. To know the complications of Nephrotic Syndrome is good for the recovery. Now let’s have a quick look.

Acute renal failure

Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have massive proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipemia, which can make your body in a state of low blood volume and high condensation. Besides, vomit, diarrhea and the use of antihypertensive drugs and diuretics can make the renal perfusion decrease, leading to the decline of GFR. This can cause acute renal failure. In addition, edema of renal interstitium and protein concentration can block the renal tubule, triggering acute renal failure.

Electrolyte disorder and metabolic disorder

If you often use diuretics and restrict sodium unreasonably for long-term, you may have hyponatremia. Besides, the use of adrenocortical hormone and diuretics can increase the urine output. If you do not supplement potassium timely, it is easy for you to have hypokalemia.

Coronary heart disease

Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome often have hyperlipemia, which can cause coronary heart disease if you do not lower cholesterol level timely. Some researches show that coronary heart disease is the third cause of death for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.


Because massive immune globulin is lost from urine and then plasma protein decreases. This can affect the formation of antibody. Besides, the use of immunosuppressants can make your immune system weak. When your immune system is poor, bacteria and virus invade to your body easily. So Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have infection, such as skin infection, primary peritonitis, respiratory tract infection, urinary system infection even septicemia.
