Hi Santosh, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Nephrotic syndrome is a group of symptoms like protein in the urine, low blood protein level, high cholesterol level, puffiness around eyes and leg swelling. In children the most common cause is Minimal change Disease which affects Kidneys. The treatment goal is to relieve the symptoms, delay progression of Kidney damage and prevent complications. She will be put on Corticosteroids, Blood Pressure reducing medications, Vitamin D if she is unresponsive to therapy.
Kindly have patience and take her for regular follow up as the prognosis varies as she could be responsive or unreponsive to therapy. Let her take her medications as directed.
I wish her Good Health, Take Care.
