Is Allopurinol Justified to Be Given to Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Is Allopurinol Justified to Be Given to Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsNot a few Nephrotic Syndrome patients suffer from gout. Gout usually results from excessive uric acid building up in the joints. Allopurinol is a medication used primarily to treat excess uric acid in the blood. Is allopurinol justified to be given to Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

First of all, let’s have a quick look at how Nephrotic Syndrome is associated with gout.

-Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder in which your kidneys become leaky. If you are not able to take treatment timely and effectively, your kidney function may be impaired. As a result, uric acid can not be removed out of the body timely.

-Diuretics are often prescribed to Nephrotic Syndrome patients to flush out the excessive fluid, which can decrease blood volume and reduce the clearance rate of uric acid so that uric acid accumulates in the blood.

Allopurinol can be used by Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

Generally speaking, it can be used to treat gout. But this medication is removed by the kidneys. When your kidney function declines, its ingredients can not be discharged out of the body, so it is likely for you to be at a greater risk for side effects, such as stomach upset, nausea, diarrhea, drowsiness, signs of infection, unusual tiredness, etc. And it may interact with the medications you take, such as diuretics and blood thinners. Therefore, importance should be attached when you eat allopurinol.

Is allopurinol justified to be given to Nephrotic Syndrome patients? Generally speaking, it can be used. But different patients have different medical conditions, so you had better talk with your doctor before taking this medication. Besides, this medication is not a fundamental way to reduce uric acid in the blood. What you should do is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function so as to increase the output of uric acid.
