What is the treatment for nephrotic syndrome?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query her. e... My son is 17 years old and he is case of Nephrotic Syndrome. He had not been taking any treatment for the past two years as his urine albumin was normal like trace or Nil sometimes. But last week when I tested it showed 1 plus and today morning it showed 2 plus. Is it because of summer or is it again one more relapse. Please let me know. One issue we have been using crystal salt since ten days instead of Tata powder salt. It this also a reason ? Please clarify doctor. ????? Doctor are you there ?????

Hello, Thanks for choosing HCM.
I can understand your concern about your son.

1. To know about the relapse of nephrotic syndrome you need to have a 24 hour urinary protein done to know how much amount of protein is loosing in 24 hours and if it is more that one gram then your doctor will start treatment if your son is having symptoms along with protein loss.

2. Sodium restricted diet is suggested in child with nephrotic syndrome anyhow based upon the medical condition your doctor will suggest how much amount to give. So please avoid giving high sodium diet like the salt you are using.

Please get back if you have more queries.
