What Causes Anorexia under Nephrotic Syndrome

What Causes Anorexia under Nephrotic SyndromeAnorexia, or losing appetite, is one common problem in Nephrotic Syndrome, especially among 1~6 year-old children. If left untreated, long-term anorexia can cause malnutrition, slow growth, mental disorders and so on. What causes anorexia for Nephrotic Syndrome?

Most often, Nephrotic Syndrome patients’ anorexia is due to the following conditions.

1. Gastrointestinal disease: When glomeruli can’t eliminate waste products and toxins normally, these substances may deposit in gastrointestinal tract, resulting in gastrointestinal disorders easily. For example, peptic ulcer, chronic enteritis, diarrhea and chronic constipation, all can induce anorexia.

2. Acidosis: In addition to removing waste products and toxins, maintaining acid-base balance is another important kidney function. Therefore, acidosis is just one complication of low kidney function, and it can also induce anorexia for children with Nephrotic Syndrome.

3. Deficiency of zinc or iron: When the body can’t absorb enough zinc or iron, it will cause thyroid hypofunction. This is another reason of anorexia.

4. Unscientific dietary structure: A kidney-friendly diet is very important for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. If not developing such a diet plan, a series of problems may occur easily.

The above are common reasons of anorexia for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. If you or your child is also suffering from this problem, you should take effective treatment to avoid more severe complications.

On one hand, it is necessary to follow a scientific diet plan. In addition to reducing the burden on kidneys, patients should also absorb enough nutritions including protein, minerals and vitamins.

On the other hand, improving kidney condition and treating Nephrotic Syndrome from the root is a must. Immunotherapy is one natural therapy that can restore patients’ impaired glomeruli and prevent the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome. As long as kidneys can work normally, patients don’t need to bear anorexia and lack of energy any more.
