Why Does Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Have Low Levels Of Protein In BloodWhy does low levels of protein in the blood occur in Nephrotic Syndrome (NS)? NS is a non-specific kidney disease which is characterized by a number of signs of diseases such as proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and edema as well as low levels of protein in blood. Well then, what are the causes of low protein level in blood of nephrotic syndrome?

1. The loss of plasma protein

The source of massive proteinuria in routine urine test comes from blood. When blood goes through kidneys, kidneys will have renal fibrosis due to infection or other secondary diseases. In this condition, kidneys cannot prevent the leakage of macromolecular protein from leaking from your body. What’s more, renal tubules fail to reabsorb macromelocular protein. This is the main cause of low levels of protein in blood.

2. Less protein is reabsorbed by intestines.

Since large amounts of protein leaks from blood into urine, edema will be induced. When edema spreads to intestines, digestive and absorbing function will be affected. Protein coming from foods can also not be absorbed by your body and urea balance is also disturbed. At this time, low protein levels in blood may be worsened.

3. Abnormal protein metabolism

In the end stage of Nephrotic Syndrome, patients will have a series of complications like anemia, hyperlipidaemia and hypercoagulability. Patients at this time will have low immunity. Besides, abnormal breakdown and metabolism of protein will also present, which make low levels of protein in blood become worse.

All these three factors of low protein levels in blood can be summarized to one, namely: kidney itself is not working properly. Therefore, to improve low levels of protein in blood, we need to improve kidney self-healing ability by way of repairing damaged kidney tissues. Have you heard of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy? The active ingredients in this therapy can come to the injured kidney tissues directly with the help of osmosis device. The efficacy of active ingredients includes blood vessel dilation, inflammation and coagulation prevention, renal fibrosis blockage as well as providing some nutrients for damaged kidneys recovery.
