Painful Feet for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Painful Feet for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsIt is uncommon that Nephrotic Syndrome patients experience painful feet. If trauma or unhealthy lifestyle is ruled out, this symptom may be related with Nephrotic Syndrome in several aspects. If you or your child just has a same problem, follow me to find the causes and treatments.

What causes painful feet for people with Nephrotic Syndrome?

Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by two obvious symptoms: proteinuria and swelling. With the protein leakage, a part of immunoglobulin will be lost, resulting in low immune ability. If infections appear in feet, patients may have painful sensation in this area. Generally, swelling in feet won’t cause foot pain, but in serious cases, this does happen.

Another reason of painful feet for Nephrotic Syndrome patients is low kidney excretory function. If kidneys are damaged severely, they are unable to filter out waste products and toxins completely. Then, uric acid may deposit in patients’ feet especially toe and ankles easily that can lead to painful feet directly.

Treatments for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to manage their foot pain

According to the causes, some treatments can be used to solve this problem for NS patients.

If protein leakage is the underlying cause, patients are suggested to develop a low-protein diet with enough high-quality protein, take correct medications such as steroids, ACEi and ARBs, repair damaged kidney filters.

If swelling is the underlying cause, patients should limit their fluid intake, use diuretic or other medications, and increase urine output.

If the deposit of uric acid is the underlying cause, patients should avoid high-purine foods, take medications to eliminate uric acid, and improve glomerular filtration rate.

Besides, treatments that can help manage Nephrotic Syndrome fundamentally are needed. So far, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy have been used widely to treat it. If you want to know which one is suitable for you, you can ask help from Doctor online.
