Why Do Some Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Need to Do Renal BiopsyWhy do some Nephrotic Syndrome patients need to do renal biopsy? Because Nephrotic Syndrome is not a single disease, but a group of symptoms. To do renal biopsy is helpful to make a clear diagnosis, guide treatment and judge prognosis. Now go on reading to learn more information.

To make a clear diagnosis

At present, there are basically two diagnostic methods for kidney disease, one is clinical diagnosis, the other is immunopathological diagnosis. Only when the two methods are combined can the diagnosis be made clearly. Therefore, it is necessary to rely on renal biopsy. For example, all the diseases are manifested as Nephrotic Syndrome, but their pathological manifestations can be seen in a variety of pathological types, such as minimal change disease, podocytosis, IgA Nephropathy, membranous nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), etc. The final diagnosis must rely on immunopathological diagnosis. Other rare diseases, such as amyloidosis and lipoprotein nephropathy, are also clinically manifested as nephrotic syndrome, which can not be diagnosed clinically without biopsy.

To guide treatment

After the diagnosis is confirmed by renal biopsy, it can provide important basis for clinical formulation and revision of treatment plan. If it is diagnosed as minimal change disease after renal biopsy, the therapeutic effect of steroids is good, and other pathological types have different reactivity to steroid therapy. Cytotoxic drugs may be added in some cases to avoid delaying the disease.

To judge prognosis

After definite diagnosis of renal biopsy, the prognosis of the lesion can be basically estimated. Clinically, even though the type of kidney disease is the same, its pathological manifestations are different, and its prognosis is also different.

However, not all Nephrotic Syndrome patients need to do renal biopsy. And you can follow your doctor’s advice to determine whether you do it or not.
