What Triggers the Relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome

What Triggers the Relapse of Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome isn't one disease easy to treat, and its treatment usually needs a long time. What's worse, even though this disease is treated, patients are still at a high risk of relapse. What can cause the recurrence of Nephrotic Syndrome?

As introduced by kidney experts, the following factors may trigger the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome easily.

1.  Unhealthy diet plan

This is the leading cause of Nephrotic Syndrome recurrence. With the help of steroids, Nephrotic Syndrome can be remitted in most cases. However, quite a number of patients don't pay attention to their diet after finishing their treatment plan. Extra sodium or protein intake may make their kidney disease relapse easily.

2.  Infections

After long-term treatments, Nephrotic Syndrome patients' immune ability is usually quite low for the use of steroids or immunosuppressants. Then, patients are susceptible to infections, cold and fever. These cause immune complexes to build up in the kidneys and increase the burden on kidneys, affecting kidney filtration function. Then, proteinuria, swelling, hematuria, and some other symptoms appear.

3.  Alcohol and smoking

Alcohol is one dangerous factor for many diseases' relapse including Nephrotic Syndrome, because drinking alcohol can affect the activity of T cells and inhibit immune ability.

It is reported the recurrence rate of Nephrotic Syndrome for smokers is 3 times higher than those who don't smoke.

4.  Pregnant

Women with Nephrotic Syndrome are usually not suggested to get pregnancy unless their illness condition has been controlled very well. This is because pregnancy can cause the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome and worsen patients' health condition easily. Finally, patients are unable to give birth to the baby successfully.

5.  Stress

If patients have big stress, overwork, sleep problems, worry, and some other mental disorders, they are at risk of Nephrotic Syndrome recurrence.

Since these factors are dangerous for these patients, they should pay attention to these factors in their daily life.
