Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome Experience Nausea and Vomiting

2014-02-18 15:57

Nephrotic syndrome is a non-specific kidney disorder. It is featured with a number of certain signs and symptoms. Nausea and vomiting are two common complaints of nephritic syndrome.

Possible causes of nausea and vomiting in nephritic syndrome

Excessive leakage of protein

In nephritic syndrome, the tiny filters in kidneys are become impaired significantly so they often become leaky. Thereby, a large amount of protein will pass through the filters, ending up in urine. Proteins can hold fluid in blood vessels normally. When the level of protein in blood vessels declines, the residual protein will not be enough to retain all fluid in blood vessels. As a result, the fluid will filter into subcutaneous from blood vessels, thus resulting in swelling in arms, legs etc. In serious case, the gastrointestinal tract will also be flooded with fluid. Thereby, it will cause nausea and vomiting in nephritic syndrome.

Buildup of urea nitrogen

Urea nitrogen is the byproduct of protein and is normally eliminated from body by kidneys. In Nephrotic Syndrome, as the kidneys become scarred, high levels of urea nitrogen will build up in body. If the concentration of urea nitrogen in gastrointestinal tract is very high, urea nitrogen will be decomposed into ammonia with the help of bacteria. The ammonia will irritate gastrointestinal tract, resulting in nausea and vomiting.

The above are the major two causes of nausea and vomiting in nephritic syndrome. In addition, certain medications, metabolic disorder etc may also contribute to those two conditions in nephritic syndrome.

As nausea and vomiting in nephritic syndrome result from high buildup of fluid and waste products, to control these two conditions, a treatment should be applied to eliminate those unwanted substances from body. If the renal function can be improved, the treatment goal will be attained. Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is an effective way for nephritic syndrome by restoring the impaired kidney structure.
