Nephrotic Syndrome Causes
Nephrotic syndrome occurs due to destruction of the clusters of tiny blood vessels called glomeruli of kidneys.
Glomeruli filter your blood as it passes through the kidneys. These separate the waste products which are not needed. Glomeruli help to maintain healthy blood protein specially albumin which is needed to maintain healthy body fluid. When these are damaged, become incapable to retain protein and it gets secreted through urine. All this leads to nephrotic syndrome.
Some Causes are:-
- Diabetic kidney disease
- Heart failure
- Blood clot in kidney vein
- Membranous nephropathy
Certain medications, some infections, certain health conditions can contribute as risk factors for Nephrotic Syndrome.
Nephrotic Syndrome Symptoms

According to Ayurveda renal failure is caused by the blockage of minute body channels called Srotas. The body channels known as Mutravaha srotas, carry urine and are responsible for the flow of liquid into and out of the kidneys. If there are blockages in the incoming Srotas the kidneys are denied fluids and shrinkage occurs and if the outgoing channels are blocked, swelling occurs.
