Thanks for the query.Nephrotic syndrome
is known to relapse in childhood.
If it recurs, the child will need another course of steroids (omnacortil
). Unfortunately omnacortil can cause multiple problems, some of which you have listed.
If used for prolonged periods
steroids can also impair the height.
Thus if there are frequent relapses the nephrologist
may consider another medication and/or a kidney biopsy.
Hope this helps
