Suggest treatment for protein in the uurine

hi.. my son is two years old.. In April this year, he was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome and was given prednisolone 20 mg for 6 weeks and then 10 mg for the next 6 weeks.. his urine and blood tests were normal since june this year.. however, his latest urine report shows a (+) for protein.. a spot test shows protein 85 mg% and creatinine 25 mg % and the protein creatine ratio is 3.4.. we consulted a homeopathy doctor today and have started treatment.. i want to know how serious his condition is and whether there is any danger to his kidneys.. finally, will homeopathy benefit him??

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear, I understand your concern

A urine protein creatinine ratio above 2 indicates relapse(recurrence) of nephrotic syndrome, but we have to confirm this by measuring with early morning sample for 2 more consecutive days.

If confirmed, this need to be treated with prednisolone(for shorter duration than first episode). Kindly take him back to his pediatrician, as in my opinion, homeopathy will not help and make the condition worse by delaying treatment.

Nephrotic syndrome once diagnosed, will be recurring 1-2 times in >50% of patients, and nothing to be worried if we are able to control it.

Hope I have answered your query
