Care Plan in Shortness of Breath for Nephrotic SyndromeShortness of breath should be alarming to Nephrotic Syndrome patients, because it may be associated with serious health problem. Today, we are here to introduce some care plan for Nephrotic Syndrome patients’ shortness of breath.

Firstly, we should make clear why Nephrotic Syndrome patients have this problem. Shortness of breath is usually related to kidneys in two ways. One is extra fluid accumulated in the lungs, and the other is renal anemia that can leave the body oxygen-starved and short of breath.

According to the causes, we give out the following care suggestions to manage these patients’ shortness of breath.

1. Dietary care plan

To overcome Nephrotic Syndrome patients’ shortness of breath, patients should limit their intake of fluid and sodium. Additionally, a diet with rich iron is also needed, because iron is one raw material of red blood cells that can help increase the amount of red blood cell production and ease renal anemia.

2. Take medicines punctually

Nephrotic Syndrome patients often need to take various medicines to control their illness condition. For example, diuretics are often used to manage patients’ swelling, and erythropoietin may be taken to alleviate patients’ anemia. Take these medicines punctually that can help control patients’ shortness of breath.
