Features of FPE are nonbloody diarrhea, malabsorption, protein-losing enteropathy, hypoalbuminemia, and failure to thrive.
When albumin is excreted in the urine, its serum (blood) concentration decreases. Consequently, the plasma oncotic pressure reduces relative to the interstitial tissue.
The precentage of cholesterol esters was not decreased. In case of recovery, the cholesterol seemed to return to normal values at a slower rate than the serum albumin.
