The most common symptoms of nephrotic syndrome are:
- Swelling (edema).
- Weight gain.
- Kidney failure.
- Blood lipids.
- Blood clots.
When your body starts to excrete too much protein in your urine, the condition is nephrotic syndrome. Kidneys filter the excess waste from our body and the damage to the clusters of the blood vessels of the kidney results in nephrotic syndrome. It is caused due to damage to the glomeruli, the structures in the kidneys responsible for filtering the blood. As a result of this damage, the protein in the blood leak into the urine and increases the excretion of protein(proteinuria). It is soon followed by a reduction in albumin levels in the blood. This condition may affect adults and children of both sexes. It is a disease specific to the kidneys, its glomerular inflammation is associated with the impaired kidney function.

At Medanta, the treatment of any underlying medical condition which might also be a cause of nephrotic syndrome is the best bet to treating it. Meanwhile, some medications that are used to control the effects of nephrotic syndrome include:
Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) can be used to lower the blood pressure.
Water pills increase the fluid output of the kidneys and help in reducing the swelling.
Drugs called statins are a good option to decrease cholesterol. But, it is still a matter of doubt whether cholesterol reducing medicines are of any help to a patient with nephrotic syndrome.
These medicines reduce the risk of blood clots in the bloodstream.
This class of medication controls the immune system and helps in reducing the inflammation in the kidneys.
