Can Alcohol Exacerbate Nephrotic Syndrome

Can Alcohol Exacerbate Nephrotic SyndromeWith Nephrotic Syndrome, you may be suggested not to drink alcohol. Can alcohol exacerbate Nephrotic Syndrome? Read on to learn more information.

1. Alcohol can Increase the metabolic burden of the kidney

The kidney function of kidney patients is inadequate. Drinking alcohol will affect the nitrogen balance of the body and increase the decomposition of protein, resulting in the elevation of blood urea nitrogen, which will inevitably increase the burden of the kidney.

2. Alcohol conflicts with medication

Most patients with Nephrotic Syndrome need to take drugs for a long time, and many drugs conflict with alcohol, and the principle is roughly the same.

Many drugs and alcohols are metabolized by metabolic enzymes. If they are taken at the same time, they will compete for metabolic enzymes. For example, after using some cephalosporins, metronidazole and other drugs, the step from acetaldehyde to acetic acid in alcohol metabolism will be inhibited. As a result, the concentration of acetaldehyde in the body will increase, resulting in a series of symptoms, such as chest tightness, headache, nausea, and even more serious consequences.

Likewise, some medicines can't compete for alcohol, which can also cause problems. For example, warfarin, a drug used to prevent thrombosis, can lead to reduced its metabolism, increased efficacy and increased risk of bleeding by drinking alcohol.

3. Alcohol can increase uric acid level.

Beer also contains alcohol. It has diuretic function, but it can put extra stress on kidneys. Besides, it can damage liver and elevate uric aid level.

In addition, drinking alcohol can reduce renal blood flow into kidneys, leading to renal ischemia and anoxia so as to make kidney condition worse. It can also elevate blood pressure, which is also a factor to impair kidneys. Therefore, you had better avoid alcohol.

Can alcohol exacerbate Nephrotic Syndrome? Yes, it can, so you had better stop it as early as possible. Besides healthy lifestyle, you should follow a correct medical treatment to have a permanent control of the disease. In our hospital, we use systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which shows remarkable effect.
