Why Does Nephrotic Syndrome Cause Hypoalbuminemia

Why Does Nephrotic Syndrome Cause HypoalbuminemiaHypoalbuminemia is a deficit of albumin in the blood. It can cause swelling, muscular symptoms, loss of appetite, ascites, pleural effusions and so on. With Nephrotic Syndrome, it is likely for you to have hypoalbuminemia. Why does Nephrotic Syndrome cause hypoalbuminemia?

Nephrotic Syndrome and hypoalbuminemia

Nephrotic Syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder, in which the glomeruli become leaky due to kidney inflammation so that massive protein leaks into urine. And then protein in the blood will reduce, leading to hypoalbuminemia. Kidney inflammation usually results from immune complexes depositing in the kidneys.

Things you can do to treat hypoalbuminemia caused by Nephrotic Syndrome

-Generally speaking, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should limit protein intake, which helps reduce protein leakage. But it does not mean you should avoid protein intake. To improve hypoalbuminemia, you should eat moderate high quality protein.

-Avoid alcohol, because it can cause your symptoms of hypoalbuminemia to worsen.

-In severe case, you should do intravenous infusion of plasma albumin.

-You should also stop proteinuria timely. Conventional treatment is to use steroids and immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation so as to reduce proteinuria. Besides, you can also use ACEI or ARB to lower blood pressure and decrease proteinuria.

The fundamental way to improve hypoalbuminemia and other symptoms associated with Nephrotic Syndrome is to cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup) can degrade immune complexes in the kidneys to reduce kidney inflammation. They can also draw toxins out of the body, improve blood circulation, block blood clotting, reduce blood pressure, decrease blood cholesterol level and regulate the blood sugar level to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome can be brought under control and they can also reduce relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.
