Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
Nephrotic syndrome is a chronic kidney disease.
Initial attack needs 6 weeks treatment daily in 2-3 divided doses followed by maintenance on alternate day single morning dose.
If response is not satisfactory continue some more days.
Even after recovery relapse may occur.
Any way you need treatment under constant supervision of pediatrician.
For complete cure baby should be observed upto one year.
Cure depends on the type of nephrotic syndrome.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
