• nephrotic
  • The nephrotic syndrome consists of proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, and hyperlipidemia with or without edema. (renalandurologynews.com)
  • The primary objective of this study is to assess the proportion of treatment-resistant subjects (defined as subjects who either have had no response or have suffered a relapse after achieving a partial response to their most recent standard treatment regimen) who have a complete or partial remission of proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome due to idiopathic membranous nephropathy after 24 weeks of treatment.

  • Proteinuria may be a feature of the following conditions: Nephrotic syndromes (i.e. intrinsic renal failure) Pre-eclampsia Eclampsia Toxic lesions of kidneys Amyloidosis Collagen vascular diseases (e.g. systemic lupus erythematosus) Dehydration Glomerular diseases, such as membranous glomerulonephritis, focal segmental glomerulonephritis, minimal change disease (lipoid nephrosis) Strenuous exercise Stress Benign orthostatic (postural) proteinuria Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) IgA nephropathy (i.e. (wikipedia.org)
  • white lines (leukonychia) that extend all the way across the nail and lie parallel to the lunula The main signs of nephrotic syndrome are: A proteinuria of greater than 3.5 g /24 h /1.73 m2 (between 3 and 3.5 g/24 h /1.73 m2 is considered to be proteinuria in the nephrotic range) or greater than 40 mg/h/m2 in children.

  • Patients
  • Researchers suspect that blocking the endothelin peptide could be a promising new treatment strategy for patients who develop proteinuria. (eurekalert.org)
  • Johannes Mann, MD (Schwabing General Hospital and KfH Kidney Centre, in Munchen, Germany) and his colleagues examined the effects of avosentan on proteinuria and kidney function in patients with type 2 diabetes and kidney disease through a multicenter, multinational, double-blind, controlled trial. (eurekalert.org)
  • Dr. Mann noted that the findings from the ASCEND trial highlight the risks and potential benefits of endothelin antagonists in kidney disease patients with proteinuria and will help investigators design future studies to test the drugs' potential. (eurekalert.org)
  • It has been my experience that there is a small cadre of patients who suddenly develop proteinuria with borderline blood pressures who subsequently flare with the full deal (eclampsia, stroke) within the next two weeks, certainly a departure from the usual pattern as depicted by **** of blood pressure first, protein second. (preeclampsia.org)
  • At the very least patients at risk for preeclampsia, chronic hypertensives, diabetics, first prenatal visits, third trimester visits probably deserve the screening for proteinuria in my opinion until further evidence is in place. (preeclampsia.org)
  • Proteinuria has occurred in some patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • ascites
  • this is the constellation of proteinuria, hypoalbuminaemia, hypercholesterolaemia, and subcutaneous oedema and/or ascites. (vin.com)
  • blood
  • The salt-induced increase in proteinuria was related to the increase in systolic blood pressure on the high-salt diet ( r =.54, P =.04). (ahajournals.org)
