Nephrotic Syndrome Vs Nephritic Syndrome
Different physiology: The blood vessels in the glomeruli are damaged by inflammation in the nephritic syndrome sufficient for at least a few of them to bleed. They merely leak protein in the nephrotic syndrome, in which obvious inflammation in the classic sense is not visible but protein-retaining molecules in the gbm are lost. Famously, the membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis family produces both syndromes. ...Read more
Why is there selective proteinuria in nephritic and nonselective proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome?
Whoa: Who's your instructor? In nephrotic syndrome, the proteinuria may be selective (mostly albumin, as in most cases of minimal changed disease and any other cause of proteinuria in which the gbm is only modestly damaged) or nonselective (lots of globulin also, as see in the more severe nephrotic syndromes). ...Read more

I have fsgs with nephrotic syndrome. Is it posible to cure ?, if not what is the best way to manage it?
Some have remission: Primary fsgs is typically treated initially with high dose steroids. If no response other agents are added such as Cyclosporine or tacrolimus . Many patients have significant improvement in urine protein levels. Additionally ace inhibitors and statins are added. Weight loss, low sodium diet and a low protein diet are important. A portion of patients will go into remission. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Diet does not affect the course of condition (nephrotic syndrome) by "minimal change lesion." however, if nephrotic syndrome is caused by other pathology, e.g., focal segmental glomerulosclerosis , limitation of protein intake would be advised. Consult with your nephrologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
