Hello,

Regarding your question, the treatment depends on the exact cause. As you mentioned renal and hepatic parameters are normal your child should be evaluated for other possible causes especially infections.

I would recommend doing hid Echocardiography and screening for infections.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
