A 36-year-old member asked:

What is the latest treatment for nephrotic syndrome in children?

Dr. David Miller answered
Family Medicine 10 years experience
Steroids: Kids with nephrotic syndrome spill protein in their urine due to inflammation of the membrane that filters blood. This leads to swelling throughout the body as there is not enough protein in the blood to prevent fluid from leaks out of the vessels. Treatment is steroids to knock down the inflammation and stop the proteins from leaking out. The problem usually resolves fairly quickly when treated.
