Top 5 Complications Of Nephrotic Syndrome: You Should Not Neglect Nephrotic Syndrome will lead to a series of complications like infection, blood clots and coronary heart disease, etc. These complications are very harmful for nephrotic syndrome patients and should not be neglected. The following are some complications of Nephrotic Syndrome.

1. Infection

Infection is a common complication of Nephrotic Syndrome. Infection includes upper respiratory tract infection, urinary tract infection and skin infection, etc. Infection can be caused by leakage of lots of IgG, malnutrition, lack of B factor and loss of zinc and iron.

2. Blood clot

Blood clot is common to be seen in Nephrotic Syndrome. Membranous Nephropathy patients often suffer from blood clots and the morbidity rate is as high as 40%. This is usually related to swelling, hyperlipidemia and increased blood viscosity.

3. Acute kidney failure

Due to massive proteinuria, obvious swelling, hypoproteinuria and hyperlipidemia, patients often experience vomiting and diarrhea. When hypotensive drugs and diuretics are used, it makes kidneys lose some blood and also makes glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decrease. Under this condition, acute kidney failure occurs.

4. Coronary heart disease

Almost all nephrotic syndrome patients have hyperlipidemia especially coronary heart disease. Experts point out that coronary heart disease, infection and acute kidney failure are three leading factors for killing nephrotic syndrome patients.

5. Electrolyte and metabolic disorders
