— The concentration of lipids (cholesterol and/or triglycerides) can become greatly elevated in nephrotic syndrome. If persistent, this may increase the risk of coronary artery disease. This is also why a good healthy diet low in sodium and low in fat/cholesterol intake is important with patients experiencing Nephrotic Syndrome! Thoughts, concerns or experiences to add to this???
