Hyperlipidemia (HLP), a common complication, is very prevalent in children with primary nephrotic syndrome (PNS). HLP not only significantly increases the cardiovascular risk in adulthood, but also accelerates the progression of renal disease. Proteinuria as the most important pathophysiological change can reduce serum colloid osmotic pressure, which leads to an increase in the synthesis of serum proteins including lipoproteins in the liver for export to the serum. Thus, the severity of lipid… CONTINUE READING
