To diagnose Nephrotic Syndrome, the following tests are needed:
Urine Test: A urinalysis help to detect excess protein in urine and this is the basic to diagnose Nephrotic Syndrome. To have a urine test, patients are usually suggested to collect urine samples over 24 hours.
Blood Test: With Nephrotic Syndrome, patients usually show low level of protein albumin and high level of lipid in blood. With this test, we can know clearly whether patients are suffering from these problems.
Renal biopsy: Sometimes, renal biopsy is needed for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Renal biopsy is a medical produce in which a small piece of kidney si removed from the body for examination. Through this test, we can know how far kidney disease has progressed and in what way patients’ kidneys are damaged.
Kidney Ultrasound: Kidney ultrasound is usually done to look at the kidneys. This test can help rule out other causes of patients’ symptoms.
