1 Answer:

Hello, Rina. Nephrotic syndrome is a disease where there is damage to the kidneys. Where there is damage to the glomerulus of the kidney (part of the kidney) which causes its filtering function to be damaged, so that the kidneys do not work optimally. In nephrotic syndrome, there will be a release of body proteins that are not filtered by kidney damage, one of which is albumin. Albumin functions as a retainer of fluid in blood vessels, so that when the albumin in the body is reduced (hypoalbumin) it will cause the body to become swollen (edema). Nephrotic syndrome is characterized by:

Proteinuria or the amount of protein in the urine. This happens because a lot of protein comes out because it is not filtered by the kidneys. This can be indicated by the color of the urine that turns cloudy and white. Hypoalbumin. Or reduced albumin in the blood vessels so that water will accumulate in body tissues and cause swelling, especially around the eyes, stomach, ankles, and feet. Edema or swelling that occurs in any part of the body. High blood pressure. Disorders of the kidneys will be at risk for increasing a person's blood pressure. Because the kidneys also play a role in regulating human blood pressure. It takes time to treat nephrotic syndrome. It usually takes 6-8 weeks for minimal nephrotic syndrome. Therefore it is better if you suffer from nephrotic syndrome then continue treatment regularly. Swelling of the face and abdomen will disappear as other conditions improve. For the treatment of nephrotic syndrome, you should not take drugs carelessly because it is not good for your health. Medicines taken must be in accordance with a doctor's prescription. So if your complaints increase, you should consult again with the doctor who treats you.
