The Cause Of The Nephrotic Syndrome?
Do you want to ask about how many ml of urine are usually in SN patients with a catheter attached? R nWhat causes Nephrotic Syndrome disease? And why?
Hello Oky, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Nephrotic syndrome is a condition in which the kidneys excrete too much protein through urinating. Nephrotic syndrome can be caused by many possibilities, including:
Diabetes or diabetes (diabetic nephropathy)
Autoimmune diseases such as SLE (Lupus)
Minimal change disease (disease minimal changes in the glomerolus), the most common cause of nephrotic syndrome in children
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis)
Membranous nephropathy (membranous nephropathy)
Amyloidosis or a disease in which there is a buildup of amyloid protein
Blockage of the kidney blood vessels
Infections such as HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C
Certain medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), certain antibiotics
Each of the causes above has its own mechanism for causing damage to the kidneys, but in general, the above diseases will cause damage to the glomerolus of the kidney (the part of the kidney that filters blood and makes urine). The glomerolus of the kidney should have a very small filter that keeps the protein (which is large) from passing through. When the glomeroli is damaged, the filter becomes leaky and the protein can pass through the glomerolus and into the urine. This causes the protein in the blood to decrease in number (because it all goes into the urine) and causes symptoms that you can see for yourself in people with nephrotic syndrome (fluid buildup, swelling, high blood pressure, etc.).
The amount of urine produced is not affected by this disease (unless certain complications such as kidney failure occur). The normal amount of urine produced is 0.5 to 1.5 mL / kg / hour.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
