Infection in Belly from Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is defined as the presence of proteinuria (>3.5 g/24h). Infection in belly is one of the common symptoms of this kidney disease. This kind of infection usually occurs in children. This article is to provide an introduction to the causes and treatments.

►Causes

Low immune ability

As we all know, Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by large amounts of protein loss in the urine. Except for the protein, many other substances such as immunoglobulins and complements, which are also the important parts of our immune defense system, start to reduce. At the same time, white blood cells together with some trace elements start to lose, resulting in a weak body. With low immune ability, Nephrotic Syndrome patients cannot prevent viruses and bacteria from invading their body. As a result, infection in belly occurs.

Side effects of medicines

During the treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome, some immune agents like steroids and cytotoxic drugs are used, which will increase the risk of infection. Therefore, Nephrotic Syndrome patients easily get upper respiratory tract infection, intestinal infection, peritonitis, pleuritis, and subcutaneous soft tissue infection.

Most children will have problems only with swelling. However, a child with nephrotic syndrome can develop a serious infection in the belly. If your child has a fever or starts complaining of severe pain in the belly, you should call your doctor at once.

►Treatment

Firstly, in most cases, antibiotics are recommended for dealing with belly infection. Antibiotic indeed has a quick effect on belly infection, and can make the condition under control.

Secondly, patients with severe belly infection should have a good rest and avoid strong activities.

Thirdly, keep a healthy diet. Fresh vegetables and fruits are good, and greasy and spicy foods should be forbidden.
