    Causes of Eye or Facial Edema with Nephrotic Syndrome Creatinine 1.7

    Some people may find that there are mild edema on their eyes or face in the morning. In general,it is not a matter to many people. Due to abnormal,incorrect or irregular sleep,drinking water or sleeping position,edema on face or eye may occur too. However,it is not normal to people with Nephrotic Syndrome.So why does Nephrotic Syndrome cause the edema on eye or face?

    Nephrotic Syndrome,called NS,is a set of clinical syndromes caused by various reasons. It mainly has 4 features:massive proteinuria,hypoproteinemia,edema and hyperlipemia(HLP). Edema is one of the most important symptoms caused by NS. Owing to the chronicity and complexity,there are no obvious symptoms,so most patients will not feel uncomfortable or go to see a doctor.,which leads to the disease worsen badly. Creatinine 1.7 means that the disease is not too bad and the symptoms are not so noticeable that patients can discover the illness. Nevertheless,there are also some clues that can be catched. The slight edema is a omen of the renal disease.

    So what causes of NS lead to the edema?

    Owing to the lesions on kidneys,the function of glomerulus are damaged,which influences its excretory function. The damaged glomerulus can not keep the balance of water,metabolite,acid and base,which will lead to many complications. The hypoproteinemia caused by massive proteinuria, and the reduced plasma colloid osmotic pressure will make the water enters into tissue space,which is the main reason of edema. Besides,the electrolyte imbalance will deteriorate the edema level. In early stage,the edema may be slight and just occurs in eye or face. What’s more,the edema may disappear at noon,be worsened by fatigue and relieve after rest. However,with the time and disease going on,the edema may be worse and worse.
