Minimal Change Disease

Minimal Change Disease is a kidney disease.  It is the most common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in the world.  This disease causes large amounts of protein to be lost into the urine. 

Kidneys filter blood to produce urine.  In the filtering process, proteins are normally kept in the body.  However, in Minimal Change Disease (MCD), proteins pass into the urine.  This loss of proteins can be life threatening if left untreated.
