Blood Tests For Nephrotic Syndrome?
good evening, to check the blood if someone has nephrotic syndrome, what components need to be considered, right? and why these components need attention? Thank you
Nephrotic syndrome is a kidney disorder that causes the body to excrete too much protein from the urine. This disorder is caused by damage to the blood vessels in the kidneys that regulate the urinary excretion system. Some of the symptoms that may arise are:
Swelling is quite severe, usually around the eyes, hands and feet
Foamy urine Weight gain due to fluid buildup in the body Fatigue Loss of appetite
There are several main components of laboratory test data needed to help diagnose this disease, especially the presence of protein in the urine, high blood cholesterol levels, and also albumin (low protein in the blood) levels. But apart from that, the results of other tests such as blood in the urine, white blood cells and other tests should also be seen to distinguish the cause from other conditions. Then for additional examinations to confirm the diagnosis, it may be necessary to examine a little kidney tissue through the biopsy process.
You can discuss with your doctor if you are checking yourself because the lab results cannot stand alone, they must be matched with the symptoms and also the examination carried out by the doctor.
