Big Amounts of Protein and Swelling in Face for Nephrotic Syndrome

Big Amounts of Protein and Swelling in Face for Nephrotic SyndromeBig amounts of protein in urine is more than 3.5 g/24h that is one diagnostic criteria of Nephrotic Syndrome. As a lot of protein leaks into urine, swelling is more likely to appear in some regions, and face is involved in it easily. From this point, it is important to deal with these problems for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

Why do Nephrotic Syndrome patients have big amounts of protein and swelling in face?

As we know, glomeruli play their filtration function through mechanical barrier and charge barrier. On one hand, there are filter holes in glomerular filtration membrane that determine what substances are filtered out and what are kept in the blood. On the other hand, there are a variety of negatively charged substances in filtration membrane, while protein also takes negative charge. Therefore, glomeruli can prevent protein from leaking into the urine.

However, with Nephrotic Syndrome, glomerular filtration membrane, both mechanical barrier and charge barrier, is destroyed. Therefore, protein goes through glomeruli and presents foamy urine. In turn, proteinuria can cause further damage to glomeruli.

Swelling in face for Nephrotic Syndrome patients is usually due to two reasons. The one is fluid and sodium retention, while the other is big amounts of protein leakage.

How to deal with both of these two problems for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

As big amounts of protein in urine and facial swelling are attributed to impaired glomerular filtration membrane. Therefore, the fundamental treatment should be able to repair it. Blood Pollution Therapy consists of three steps. The first two steps include eliminating extra fluid and waste products from the body and adding some essential nutritions to the blood, so blood circulation can come back to normal, face swelling can be eased largely and impaired glomerular cells can get enough blood and nutritions. The last step is to rebuild glomerular filtration structure. As long as glomeruli can work normally, it means Nephrotic Syndrome is treated from the root, let alone easing their symptoms.

Besides, a healthy diet plan is also one necessary part of the whole treatment plan. For example, control the amount of protein intake and choose high-quality protein. Always make sure your eating plan conforms to your illness condition.
