Three Complications in Nephrotic Syndrome Threaten Your Life

Three Complications in Nephrotic Syndrome Threaten Your LifeNephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder characterized by massive proteinuria, swelling, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. Is Nephrotic Syndrome life-threatening? Many Nephrotic Syndrome patients ask such a question. Some patients think that their swelling disappears after the use of water pills, so they think Nephrotic Syndrome can do nothing to their life. As a matter as fact, Nephrotic Syndrome threatens your life through the following three complications.

1. Abdominal dropsy and pleural effusion

Water pills can help you flush out the excess fluid from your body to relieve swelling, but they are not panacea. They can not prevent protein from leaking. Swelling will appear soon or become worse, leading to abdominal dropsy or pleural effusion so as to threaten your life.

2. Massive proteinuria

For some children or elder people with Nephrotic Syndrome, their immunity is low. Protein is the main component of antibodies. When a lot of protein goes out of the body, there is not enough protein to make antibodies, which may make your immunity worse. And then it is likely for you to get infections. Many Nephrotic Syndrome patients die of pulmonary infections.

3. Thrombus

Hyperlipemia can increase blood viscosity, leading to thrombus easily. If you get pulmonary embolism, your life may be threatened.

The above three complications in Nephrotic Syndrome threaten your life. If you still want to lead a normal and full life, you should take treatment early as possible to prevent those complications. Here we recommend Chinese medicine therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup. They can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and provide the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients to speed up kidney recovery. With the improvement of your kidney condition, you can avoid those complications. For more information on Nephrotic Syndrome, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
