Complications of nephrotic syndrome: coronary heart disease
Patients with nephrotic syndrome usually have hyperlipidemia and high blood coagulation, which can easily lead to complications of coronary heart disease and nephrotic syndrome.
Complications of nephrotic syndrome: infection
Infection is one of the common complications of nephritic syndrome. Loss of many immunoglobulins from urine results in a decrease in plasma proteins, which may affect antibody formation. The use of corticosteroids and cytotoxic drugs can reduce systemic resistance in patients. At the same time, it is easy to infect patients, such as skin infections, primary peritonitis, respiratory tract infections and urinary tract infections, and may even cause sepsis.
Complications of nephrotic syndrome: thrombosis
Patients with nephrotic syndrome are prone to thrombosis. There are many reasons such as thrombosis, edema, lack of exercise, venous stasis etc.. In addition, the use of X and cortisol in the blood is prone to hypercoagulability.
Complications of nephrotic syndrome: acute renal failure
Patients with nephritis usually have low blood volume and hypercoagulability in the presence of massive proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, and hyperlipidemia. And it can reduce the glomerular filtration rate and cause renal failure. In addition, interstitial edema and blockage of protein in the renal tubules may also contribute to acute renal failure.
