Is the medication OK for my 2.5 years old child for Nephrotic Syndrome ?

My son, 2.6 years old, was diagonised with Nephrotic Syndrome 1 year back. Since then, there have been at least 3 episodes, he has been given Omnacortil Forte in prescribed doses, sometimes along with Junior Lanzol and Macalvit. The current episode started on 17th Dec 2010, the levels of protien in urine has varied from Nil to ++++, but the nephrologist insists that we keep him on 2 ml alternate days, and frequently treats for the cold. I wanted to seek your help to know if the above prescription is ok.. or do i have to change the doctor for an alternate medication. Please help. Thank you.

Hi welcome to healthcareMagic

The above prescribed medicines for the Nephrotic synrdome is correct.... They have started on steroids , which they will continue to taper and stop... the treatment will be for few months... Commonest type of Nephrotic syndrome in childhood is minimal change disease... pathology is absence of foot process of cells of nephron.. since there is loss of protein in urine, protein enriched food must be supplemented.... i hope i have answerd your question...

Take care
