How Is Nephrotic Syndrome Connected with Dialysis

How Is Nephrotic Syndrome Connected with DialysisIs there a connection between dialysis and Nephrotic Syndrome? I am sure the answer is “Yes”. And I know many patients know the answer well, but seldom of them know how kidney failure is caused by Nephrotic Syndrome. Here, we will mainly introduce how Nephrotic Syndrome progresses to kidney failure and why dialysis is needed when Nephrotic Syndrome runs to kidney failure stage.

Nephrotic Syndrome progresses to kidney failure stage

Kidney failure refers to the worst kidney condition which is usually diagnosed when Glomerular Filtration Rate is lower than 15. Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney problem in which large amounts of protein are released into urine due to increase of permeability of glomerular filtration membrane. In initial stage, only a small amount of proteins are lost, so no obvious physical discomforts or clinical manifestations appear. However, as there is no effective and timely treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome keeps progressing. As a result, more and more proteins get into urine, leading to foamy urine, fluid retention and fatigue and so on. Although these symptoms appear due to Nephrotic Syndrome, if left alone, they accelerate illness condition. Kidney failure is caused when Nephrotic Syndrome develops to end stage.

Why is dialysis needed when Nephrotic Syndrome runs to kidney failure

Dialysis is a must for life-sustaining in some cases, but not for all the patients. Dialysis is needed when illness develops to kidney failure because at that time large amounts of toxins has build up in the blood. If not removed, they will damage internal organs and cause further health tissues. Dialysis can help to clear some toxins away from blood, which is very helpful for the protection of residual kidney tissues. Therefore, dialysis is needed when Nephrotic Syndrome progresses to kidney failure stage.

Dialysis is a related with Nephrotic Syndrome through kidney failure. Therefore, for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, as long as they can prevent kidney failure effectively, they can live the rest of their life without dialysis.
