What causes proteinuria for Nephrotic Syndrome?
The glomeruli and small blood vessels work as a filtering system in the kidney. Under normal circumstances, they retain substances your body needs, such as protein, while filtering wastes and excess water from the blood and passing them into the urine. Once they are damaged, the kidney filtering system can not work properly. As a result, substances such as protein which were previously unable to pass through can now leak into the urine. This leads to proteinuria.
