Anemia And Nephrotic Syndrome in Children

2013-11-25 16:08

Nephrotic syndrome commonly occurs among children.As renal function declines,a host of symptoms will result.Anemia often occurs in advanced nephrotic syndrome in children.

Anemia in nephrotic syndrome in children

Anemia is a disorder with lower levels of red blood cells and hemoglobin in blood.Healthy kidneys can produce a kind of hormone called EPO.EPO can stimulate bone marrow to produce red blood cells.Red blood cells can carry with oxygen and distribute it to body tissues and cells.

However,in nephrotic syndrome,kidneys become inflamed and scarred. The diseased kidneys can not produce enough EPO.As a result,reduced number of red blood cells are produced,thus resulting in anemia in nephrotic syndrome in children.

When anemia occurs,the patients will experience a host of symptoms including fatigue,dizziness,chill,pale face etc.What’s worse, it can increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases significantly.

Treatment for anemia in Nephrotic Syndrome in children

The most commonly used treatment is injection of artificial EPO. EPO can retrieve the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. Thereby, it can relieve anemia effectively.

However,the underlying cause of anemia in nephrotic syndrome in children is the kidney damage and reduced renal function. Therefore, to control anemia in nephrotic syndrome in children fundamentally,the patients should have a treatment to repair the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function.

Immunotherapy is an effective treatment for nephrotic syndrome in children.It can treat the disease from its underlying cause.

Firstly,immunotherapy can correct the immune dysfunction and help the body rebuild normal immune system.If so,the underlying cause of inflammation in kidney will be controlled fundamentally.

Secondly,immunotherapy can activate the self-healing ability of the body. When the impaired kidney tissues and cells can be regenerated and repaired, renal function will be improved fundamentally.

When the kidneys can return to function to produce EPO, anemia in nephrotic syndrome in children will be controlled fundamentally.
