Can I Play Basketball With Nephrotic Syndrome

Can I Play Basketball With Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is one common kidney disorder that affects many people. To boost these patients’ immunity and make them fight against kidney disease better, they are often suggested to do exercise. In this case, can Nephrotic Syndrome patients play basketball?

Characterized by the increased permeability of glomerular basement membrane, Nephrotic Syndrome causes a large amount of protein leakage, severe edema, hypoproteinemia, and hyperlipemia.

In order to manage these symptoms and slow down the progress of Nephrotic Syndrome, steroids and immunosuppressants are often used. However, these medications work through weakening patients’ immune system that can cause low immune ability easily. Additionally, protein leakage leads immunoglobulin to be lost that is another cause of low immunity.

Regular exercise does help to improve patients’ immune ability, improve blood circulation and fight against Nephrotic Syndrome. However, we should emphasize that kidney disease patients had better do gentle exercise.

Basketball belongs to strenuous exercise, because playing it often needs people to run quickly. In view of this, Nephrotic Syndrome patients both children and adults are recommended to do some other exercise. For example, walking is just one good choice.

To make exercise support the medical therapies largely, Nephrotic Syndrome patients can walk for half an hour three times one week. Of course, some other exercise such as jogging, Tai Chi, yoga, and so on, are also good for most patients. It is better for them to make an exercise plan with professional doctor’s guidance. Nevertheless, if patients have urinary tract infections or hematuria, they are recommended to have more rest in bed.

Along with a healthy exercise plan, patients also need to follow a scientific diet plan. If you haven’t got either of them, you can ask help from the doctor online.
