In fact, kidney diseases can cause nephrotic syndrome which refers to the protein urine, edema, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipidaemia. For the target and effective treatment, we must know the specific mechanism. Now primary nephrotic syndrome is majorly caused by primary glomerular diseases, they mainly include:
1. Minimal change nephropathy
it also been called as lipoid nephrosis due to the Steatosis in epithelial cells of proximal renal tubular. It′s common with children and teenagers.
2. Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
now, there are not a clear knowledge about the cause for FSGS. Except the nephritic syndrome, the other features are microscopic hematuria and progressively decreasing renal function.
3. Mesangial proliferative nephropathy
It is caused by the diffuse mesangial cell proliferation mesangial and messegium increased proliferative nephropathy has the symptom of microscopic hematuria, and their renal fuction progressively decreases, and one third of them have the complication of high blood pressue.
4. Membranous nephropathy
There are many immune complexes deposition in the epithelial cells of glomerular basement membrane, leading to the thickening of basement membrane. It′s easy to be complicated with phlebothrombosis, but macroscopic hematuria is rare to be seen.
