Dyslipidemia may accelerate the onset of atherosclerosis, leading to the risk of coronary heart disease. However, dyslipidemia will damage the kidneys, especially have kidney disease, because of the lack of this knowledge, so no one to pay attention to, even not to abnormal blood lipid tests alone, that aggravate kidney disease progression.
Changes of blood lipid in patients with nephrotic syndrome
Lipids in plasma mainly refer to cholesterol and triglycerides, which need to be combined with a special globulin to operate in the plasma. This particular protein is called apolipoprotein. Lipids and apolipoproteins constitute plasma lipoproteins, and plasma lipoproteins are classified in many ways. Among them, the high density lipoprotein, the lipid transport to the liver, the liver to let it down, to avoid excessive blood lipid deposition in the vascular wall that increase its chance to have protective effects on the human body; and the low density lipoprotein in blood vessels promote lipid deposition, is disadvantageous to the human body.
Proof of observing a large number of patients with nephrotic syndrome, blood lipid abnormality changes, such as plasma triglycerides and LDL levels were increased; Determination of urinary lipid, that is conducive to human apolipoprotein loss in the urine.
Abnormal lipid metabolism not only increases the risk of coronary heart disease, but also causes the deterioration of the original kidney disease. To understand the seriousness of the disease, it is suggested that routine tests of blood lipids should be carried out when suffering from kidney disease. If there is a change in kidney disease, it is necessary to rely on renal physicians for reasonable treatment.上一篇：How does lipid abnormalities damage the kidneys?
