2014-04-06 06:08

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Cause leg CrampsThe pain of Nephrotic Syndrome(NS) is unbearable by people. Most NS patients have the symptom of leg cramps. Can leg cramps be caused by Nephrotic Syndrome?

Nephrotic syndrome is induced by many factors and is a syndrome in which the glomerular basement membrane permeability increases, but glomerular filtration rate declines. The main clinical signs are massive proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia and severe edema. Leg cramps can be caused by many factors, and NS is one of the reasons. And the definite reasons are as follows:

1. Blood clots

Nephrotic syndrome patients will experience hypoalbuminemia. In this case, plasma colloid osmotic pressure will decrease, and liquid will enter the tissue space, which tends to cause blood concentration, forming blood clots. Besides, the hyperlipidemia in NS will also make blood in a state of high condensation. In this condition, blood clots will also occur. When legs have phlebothrombosis, blood stasis occurs,which makes leg cramps.

2. Declined endocrine function

As a result of injured kidney function, the endocrine function will be reduced. If kidneys cannot secrete enough active vitamin D3, patients will lack of calcium. Therefore, patients in nephrotic syndrome will have leg cramps.

3. Hormone drugs

Leg cramps are associated with hormone drugs. The side effects of taking hormones on human body are very significant. Also they fail to treat diseases from the root. Our renal experts don’t suggest hormone therapy to eliminate leg cramps.

Knowing the causes of leg cramps in NS, how to treat leg cramps effectively?
