Nephrotic Syndrome are characterized by three highs and one low--massive proteinuria, hyperlipidemia, edema and hypoalbuminmia. in severe condition, patients are prone to suffer pleural effusions. How does nephrotic syndrome cause pleural effusions?
Actually, nephrotic syndrome can induce many symptoms, and edema is one of leading symptoms which can cause by water retention and large protein loss. Let’s have a look at knowledge of pleural effusions.
Pleural effusion is excess fluid that accumulates in the pleural cavity, the fluid-filled space that surrounds the lungs. And excessive amounts of such fluid can impair breathing by mess effect. Normally, only teaspoons of watery fluid are present in the pleural space, allowing the lungs to move smoothly within the chest cavity during breathing.
Why pleural effusion occurs in Nephrotic Syndrome
However, for nephritic syndrome patients, due to damaged kidney, kidney lose its abilities as theyt once did. Protein has the function of keeping water in blood. As we know, there are lots of protein in blood, which are important for our body health. On the other hand, when patient has much protein loss, his osmotic pressure of blood will decrease, which can lead to the fluid in patient’s blood vessel flowing into tissue space, and then patient will have edema. If there are too much protein losing from patient’s blood vessel, he will have more severe edema, and that is why patient can have pleural effusion.
