Symptoms of relapsed Nephrotic Syndrome

1. Infection

Since a large amount of immune globulins get lost from urine, plasma protein decreases which affects the formation of anti-bodies. The application of adrenocortical hormone and cytotoxic drugs will decrease the immunity of patients. In this case, patients are prone to experience infection, such as skin infection, urinary system infection, primary peritonitis and respiratory tract infection as well as even inducing sepsis.

2. Coronary heart disease

Nephrotic syndrome patients usually suffer from hyperlipidemia and blood hypercoagulability, thus they easily experience coronary heart disease. Some studies show that incidence of myocardial infarction of NS patients is 8 higher than normal people. Coronary heart disease has become the third factor to the cause of death of nephrotic syndrome patients.

3. Blood clot formation

NS patients tend to suffer from blood clots. The factors of blood clot formation include swelling, less activity, hyperlipidemia and application of adrenocortical hormone and cytotoxic drugs, etc.

4. Acute kidney failure

Because of massive proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, hyperlipidemia, patients are always in a stage of hypovolemia and hypercoagulability. Nausea, diarrhea, anti-hypertensive drugs and diuretics all make renal blood perfusion decreased rapidly and further it will make glomerular filtration rate decrease, thus leading to acute kidney failure.

Frequent relapse of illness is very bothersome for nephrotic syndrome. What is more, it worsens kidney condition and lead to further kidney damage.
