Nephrotic Syndrome - 9 Surprising Causes Behind it

DM - Nephrology, MD-Medicine, MBBS
Nephrologist, Delhi
Nephrotic Syndrome - 9 Surprising Causes Behind it

Nephrotic syndrome is a type of kidney disorder wherein, the body passes out excess amount of proteins through urine, owing to the damage caused to the tiny clusters of blood vessels in the kidneys. The symptoms include putting on excessive weight as a result of fluid retention, foamy urine and severe swelling around the region of the feet, ankles and eyes.

Common causes behind it

  1. Minimal change disease (also known as nil disease) leads to the abnormal functioning of the kidneys
  2. Excess deposit of amyloid proteins in the organs, thus taking a toll on the filter mechanism of the kidneys.
  3. Diabetes affecting the glomeruli (capillaries present in the nephrons of the kidneys).
  4. Systemic lupus  erythematous causing chronic swelling of your kidney.
  5. Membranous nephropathy wherein the membranes in your glomeruli thicken.
  6. Infections such as malaria, hepatitis C, hepatitis B and HIV.
  7. Medications to combat infections and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Treatment Available

  1. Kidney Biopsy is an essential part of disease assessment.
  2. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors bring down blood pressure levels as well as the amount of protein discharged from the urine.
  3. Water pills help control sweating, thus, increasing the fluid flushed from the kidneys.
  4. Statins reduce cholesterol levels.
  5. Blood thinners such as anticoagulants lower the risk of blood clots.
  6. Corticosteroids regulate the immune system and ease the inflammation that results from kidney disorders.
  7. Incorporating certain lifestyle changes such as opting for lean proteins, cutting on the intake of fat in the diet and consuming lesser amounts of salt can treat inflammation and swelling. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Meftal spas is not an antibiotic and is of no use in treating an UTI. You have to visit an urologist and get urine routine and urine culture examination done to ascertain the kind of infection and what treatment you have to undergo.

hello lybrate user, kidney stones often have reoccurring tendency, even after surgically removed. drink plenty of water, 8-9 glass per day. (hydrotherapy is helpful to flush out kidney stones). avoid calcium oxalate rich food like peanuts, almond, spinach, tomato, egg etc; reduce animal protein intake like chicken, fish etc; reduce salt intake. add more fruits in diet. take homeopathic treatment for kidney stones (renal calculi).it's safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. natural homeopathic medicines like lyco, Berberis, etc are highly effective in complaints like kidney stones. In chronic cases, medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details of patient like medical history, other complaints, causes, routine, temperament etc..; such well selected remedy gives complete cure and stops the reoccurring tendency of kidney stones formation. message back for proper homeopathic consultation.
