Homeopath 's  Response
neprotic syndrome in a condition where due to inflammation of the nephrons kidneys are unable to retain protiens which leads to the generalized edema of renal origin. there are two types primary where no known cause exists and secondary which is usually due to some infections. in children most commonly nephrotic syndrome occurs post bacterial infection commonly streptococcal/styphylococcal.Homoeopathy has a very good scope in nephrotic syndrome as the medicines are directed towards treating the idiosyncratic reaction of the patients which is causing damage to nephrons. once the inflammatory response of the kidneys to the causative agents is subdued the recovery is quite swift. generally steroids are given in such condition to control inflammatory response . hence homeopathy fairs much better in treating cases of nephrotic syndrome. hope you have got your queries answered. if you have any queries kindly let me know. regards and wishing for a speedy recoery of your daughter.
