There are many diseases that can cause Nephrotic Syndrome. Different diseases have different prognosis.
More than 50% of FSGS patients have blood urine more or less, and 1/3 patients have high blood pressure and kidney function impairment on the onset of disease. According to some researches in China, more than 50% of FSGS patients develop to uremia in 5-10 years.
2. Non-IgA Mesangial Proliferative Glomerulonephritis
Before the onset, patients usually have respiratory tract infections, but for some patients, they do not obvious symptoms. Most patients have blood urine. 25% of this kind of kidney patients develop to uremia, but as to how many years it takes, there are no surveys about it.
Some patients may also have minimal change disease. They usually follow steroid treatment. About 25% of patients develop to uremia in 10 years, and 50% of patients develop to uremia in 20 years.

About 80-90% of patients are sensitive to steroids, but the disease relapses easily. For adults, their effect is not as good as children, especially those patients over 60 years old. It is common to see them developing to uremia.
5. Membranous Nephropathy
It usually occurs among people over 40 years old and men has a higher morbidity than women. About 33% of patients with this type of kidney disease develop to uremia in 5-10 years.
6. Mesangial Proliferative Glomerular Nephritis (MPGN)
50%-70% patients have continuous hypocomplementemia, and other complications, such as high blood pressure, anemia and kidney function impairment. About 50% patients develop to uremia in 10 years.
