An important feature of nephrotic syndrome is the large amount of proteinuria excreted. Albuminuria is mainly lost in albumin. At the same time of losing large amounts of albumin, the calcium in the blood which is easily combined with albumin is excreted in the urine as well. The children in the developmental stage of growth, the demand for calcium increased relatively, cause the body calcium deficiency in children. If you do not pay attention to the children in time to calcium or calcium intake of food intake is insufficient, eventually lead to low blood calcium, induced low calcium convulsions, hand and foot convulsions.
In addition, the treatment of nephrotic syndrome requires long-term use of large doses of adrenocortical hormone. Pharmacological studies have shown that hormones have a role in the absorption of vitamin D and calcium against the human intestinal wall. So that the lack of calcium in children with more severe, and thus easy to cause osteoporosis in children, activities prone to fracture.
Therefore, in the treatment of nephrotic syndrome in children at the same time, should pay attention to vitamin D and calcium, to compensate for the calcium deficiency phenomenon, to avoid children with a low calcium convulsion, tetany, osteoporosis and bone fracture, the doctors and patients in the treatment of children with nephrotic syndrome should notice. Parents give the child to eat calcium food, medicine at the same time with the tonic, you can reduce or even avoid the complications of low calcium.
In children with nephrotic syndrome, a large number of proteinuria and a long dose of corticosteroids can lead to calcium deficiency in children, resulting in a series of complications.
