Many people with Nephrotic Syndrome do not have any noticeable physical symptoms. When symptoms are present, they can include:
Foamy urine/bubbly urine
Foamy urine or bubbly urine is very common among Nephrotic Syndrome patients. These bubbles are small and exist for a long time. In medicine, foamy urine always denotes excess protein in urine.
Swelling/edema
Swelling is a visible symptom and it occurs when excess fluid build up in the body. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients they experience swelling due to decreased plasma osmotic pressure resulted from great loss of protein in urine. Swelling may appear in different body parts like eyelid, feet, ankles, hands and face and so on.
Shortness of breath
Shortness of breath will be caused when fluid retention spread to lung which is clinically called pulmonary edema.
When Nephrotic Syndrome deteriorates to kidney failure stage, patients will experience much more symptoms or discomforts like dry skin, poor appetite, tiredness, nausea and so on.
