As there has not been a cure for kidney disease,the most concerned issue for renal patients is that whether they will develop kidney failure.Will nephrotic syndrome progress into kidney failure?

Not all patients with nephrotic syndrome will develop Kidney Failure.The prognosis varies from individual to individual because a variety of factors should be taken into consideration.

Pathological types

Based on kidney damage degree,nephrotic syndrome can be divided into four pathological types namely MCD,FSGS,membrane nephropathy,MPGN.MCD commonly occurs in children and they usually respond to steroids very well. In most cases,the patients will not develop Kidney Failure. However,as the patients with FSGS have a poor response to medicines,they may develop kidney failure in less than 10 years after the diagnosis.If the mild pathological lesion is not controlled,it will develop into serious pathological type. Therefore,the patients with Nephrotic Syndrome are asked to have treatment early enough.

Underlying diseases and conditions

There is a variety of diseases and conditions which can cause nephrotic syndrome like Diabetes,lupus,purpura etc.These diseases and conditions can affect the prognosis of nephrotic syndrome significantly.
