Nephrotic syndrome is a group of symptoms that show your kidneys are not working as well as they should. These symptoms include too much protein in your urine, not enough protein in your blood, too much fat or cholesterol in your blood, and swelling.
The only way to know how well your kidneys are working is to get tested. Even though there is no cure for nephrotic syndrome, there may be ways to treat the symptoms and keep the damage to your kidneys from getting worse. If the disease affecting your kidneys is left untreated, it can continue damage a newly transplanted kidney.
