Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination and request a series of tests to confirm the diagnosis:
- Urine and blood tests to know the levels of protein, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
- Kidney biopsy.
Treatment will depend on the nephrotic syndrome origin, but will include the intake of various medications, such as:
- Drugs to lower blood pressure and reduce protein levels in the urine.
- Cholesterol-lowering drugs.
It is likely that your doctor will also recommend that you modify your eating habits, promoting a low sodium and low protein diet, as well as vitamin D supplements.
Remember that the best way to prevent nephrotic syndrome is by taking care of your health and controlling the conditions that can contribute to its appearance.
