Nephrotic syndrome is a warning sign that something is damaging your kidneys. It causes high levels of protein in the urine and low levels of protein in the blood.

Many things can cause nephrotic syndrome, but the most common are kidney diseases and diabetes.

Nephrotic syndrome will usually get better if the cause is treated. But in some cases, it may lead to long-term kidney problems and kidney failure.
