Can Nephrotic Syndrome Cause Cramping in Legs

leg cramp in Nephrotic SyndromeCan Nephrotic Syndrome cause cramping in legs? Nephrotic Syndrome is the kidney disorder in which kidney structure is severely damaged and they can not help to stop nutrient substances from leaking into urine. It can cause many symptoms. Well is it possible for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to have cramping in legs?

Nephrotic Syndrome is marked by protein leakage, but it indeed increases risk for leg cramp. Why is this?

Our kidney is an organ with bean-shape and it plays multiple roles in our body. It not only filters blood, but also adjusts electrolyte balance. Therefore, when kidneys shut down, electrolyte imbalance is caused easily. Hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia are the most common electrolyte disturbance in Nephrotic Syndrome, and they increase risk for leg cramp.

For Nephrotic Syndrome, besides leg cramp, it is very common to hear them complain of protein leakage and swelling. Normally, only less than 150mg of protein are lost from our urine in a day, but for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they may lose more than 3.5 gram of protein in their urine in a day. Urine with large amounts of protein presents with lots of foams. For this reason, proteinuria is described as foamy urine or frothy urine. In Nephrotic Syndrome, as large amounts of protein leak into urine, plasma osmotic pressure decreases. Under such a condition, fluid get into surrounding tissue space, leading to swelling.

In Nephrotic Syndrome, no matter foamy urine, swelling or leg cramp, they are all resulted from damaged kidney structure. Therefore, if we want to get these problems cured, we need to repair damaged kidney structure and restore kidney function. Only in this way, can we get permanent treatment effects.

Besides, for Nephrotic Syndrome patients who are tired of steroid treatment and these who get no treatment effect from steroid treatment, they can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is a herb-based treatment. Although works slowly compared with western medicine, it is harmless and meanwhile it can reverse Nephrotic Syndrome to mild stage.
