Do People With Nephrotic Syndrome Need To Be Treated?
I was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, the protein content in my urine was positive 4, do I need to be treated?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically every hospital has its own treatment criteria and whether or not a patient needs to be treated, it depends entirely on the clinical condition of the patient as assessed by the doctor who conducts the examination directly. Clinical conditions of patients with nephrotic syndrome also vary, not all patients with nephrotic syndrome require treatment in hospital. If the patient has signs of acute kidney failure, shortness of breath due to fluid buildup in the lungs, very high blood pressure (emergency hypertension or hypertension urgency), severe infections, signs of blood clots in blood vessels, the patient will need hospital treatment because it is very risky to repatriate patients with these conditions.
If the patient looks well, there are no conditions mentioned above, the patient does not need treatment with intravenous drugs, so the nephrotic syndrome patient can also be treated on the road. It is better to follow the advice of the doctor who treats you directly who knows your clinical condition better.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
