How to Treat Hypertension in Nephrotic Syndrome

How to Treat Hypertension in Nephrotic SyndromeBesides proteinuria, edema, hyperlipemia and hypoalbuminemia, people with Nephrotic Syndrome also often have hypertension. Hyperlipemia and hypertension increases your risk of heart disease. How to treat hypertension in Nephrotic Syndrome?

Why Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have hypertension?

Nephrotic Syndrome develops when there is damage to the glomeruli. This damage allows proteins in the blood to leak into the urine, leading to massive proteinuria. Eventually, blood levels of albumin become reduced. As a result, the plasma colloid osmotic pressure declines and then fluid comes into the tissue space. Because of the retention of salt and water, blood pressure rises.

How to treat hypertension in Nephrotic Syndrome?

-The most direct way is to lower blood pressure and keep it at or low 130/80 mmHg. ACEI and ARB are the medicines most often used. These medications can also decrease the amount of protein lost in the urine and protect your kidney function.

-A low-salt diet is helpful in easing edema and high blood pressure. Sometimes diuretics also help with this problem.

-Because protein leakage is the cause of edema and hypertension, it is necessary for you to follow a low-protein diet and use medicine such as steroids to reduce proteinuria.

If you want to control your Nephrotic Syndrome and lower blood pressure from the root, you should treat the underlying disease first, such as diabetes, lupus, minimal change disease, FSGS and membranous nephropathy.
