Does Nephrotic Syndrome Lead to Kidney Failure

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-10-17 14:52

Does Nephrotic Syndrome Lead to Kidney FailureNephrotic Syndrome may happen when kidney filters, known as glomeruli, are damaged. This allows protein to leak into the urine in large amounts. Faced with the signs of kidney damage, many patients may ask: does Nephrotic Syndrome lead to kidney failure?

The answer is complicated, because some patients can get complete remission from this kidney disease, while a part of patients do suffer from kidney failure eventually. Why their prognosis is so different?

The reason is that their symptoms, causes, types of Nephrotic Syndrome and illness condition all are so different and determine their various prognosis. Based on the different pathogenic factors, Nephrotic Syndrome is classified into four types: minimal change disease (MCD), focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), membranous nephropathy (MN), and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis.

Generally speaking, the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome caused by MCD and mild membranoproliferative glomerulosclerosis is better than other types. In some cases, people with MCD can get spontaneous remission, but their Nephrotic Syndrome relapses easily.

However, in other cases, the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome isn’t as good as we expect. To control patients’ illness condition, doctors usually prescribe corticosteroid and immunosuppressants. Some patients can get remission with the help of medications but their disease relapses easily, while some other patients don’t respond to these drugs.

Without other remedial measures, innumerable patients with Nephrotic Syndrome will finally develop to kidney failure where they may have to live with dialysis or kidney transplant.

From this point, a lot of kidney experts work together and create a relatively new treatment, called Immunotherapy. It mainly has six steps, immune diagnosis, immune blocking, immune clearance, immune tolerance, immune regulation and immune protection. Each of them has an intimate link. After analyzing patients’ illness condition, doctors can make a treatment plan in detail.

If you happen to have Nephrotic Syndrome and want to get rid of kidney failure, you can firstly learn how Immunotherapy helps regulate immune system and repair damaged kidney filters from online doctor.
