Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by massive protein in urine (more than 3.5g within 24 hours) which occurs when the permeability of glomerular filtration membrane is increased greatly.
In kidney, glomerular filtration membrane works as a filter and helps to separate nutritions and wastes products. When this membrane is damaged, nutrition like protein which should be kept in blood will leak and into urine, causing abnormal value in test report.
Nephrotic Syndrome can be primary or secondary. In medicine, many disease and conditions can cause glomerular damage and lead to Nephrotic Syndrome, including Minimal Change Disease, FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis), Membranous Nephropathy, Diabetic Nephropathy and Amyloidosis and SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus) and so on.
