Some Common Misunderstandings To Nephrotic Syndrome

2015-09-19 09:37

Some Common Misunderstandings To Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is a common kidney disease. How much do we know this disease? Most people know less to Nephrotic Syndrome so they often enter possibly errors. Here experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital introduce some common misunderstandings to Nephrotic Syndrome.

1. Primary Nephrotic Syndrome is an acute disease?

Primary Nephrotic Syndrome is a chronic disease and it is characterized by massive proteinuria, severe edema, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. In most cases, the occurrence of nephrotic syndrome has no reason. Some patients may have allergies or have a recent history of vaccination. Sometimes nephrotic syndrome may happen after insect bite and bee sting. Once you are diagnosed with primary nephrotic syndrome, it is a chronic disease.

2. The more proteinuria and the more obvious swelling is, the more severe your condition is?

The severity and prognosis of the disease depends on the pathological type while only renal biopsy can diagnose your pathological type. Some patients may have obvious swelling but pathological type is mild and patients are sensitive to steroid therapy. Under this condition, the therapeutic effect is good. On the contrary, although some patients have no obvious swelling, the pathological type is membrane proliferative glomerulonephritis or severe focal segmental glomerular sclerosis and patients are also not sensitive to steroids, so the prognosis is poor. Therefore, nephrotic syndrome patients had better take renal biopsy first to diagnose the type of nephrotic syndrome and then make up a treatment plan.

3. Is it good for nephrotic syndrome patients to inject more and more albumin?

Actually it is a waste to transfusion albumin. Intravenous drip of albumin will be discharged by kidneys into urine within 1-2 days. Albumin transfusion only works for the following two conditions:

Nephrotic syndrome patients have serious swelling while diuretics cannot make swelling disappear.

After diuretics application, patients suffer from deficient plasma capacity.

4. Steroids can be stopped suddenly?

The principle of steroid is that in the beginning the dosage should be sufficient quantities. Reduce the dosage slowly and under the guidance of your doctor. The dosage should be adjusted according to your own illness condition. Only in this way can relapse of nephrotic syndrome be avoided.
