Does Nephrotic Syndrome Affect Child Growth

Does Nephrotic Syndrome Affect Child GrowthNephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disease that can occur in both adults and children. But Nephrotic Syndrome does not only bring you massive proteinuria, edema, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia, but also other problems. Does Nephrotic Syndrome affect child growth? This question may be often concerned by parents. Now I can give you the answer: Nephrotic Syndrome does affect child growth. Now let’s see why Nephrotic Syndrome affects child growth and how to prevent such a problem occurring.

Why Nephrotic Syndrome affects child growth?

-Protein restriction

In order to reduce proteinuria, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are often required to restrict protein intake. But child often needs a lot of protein to grow. Without enough protein, growth hormone secretion will be affected.

-Steroid treatment may affect child growth

Steroid treatment may be the common used way for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to restrain kidney inflammation and decrease protein leakage. But steroids have many side effects, one of which is that they affect secretion of growth hormone.

Because of the above two factors, children with Nephrotic Syndrome have a high chance of growth problem.

How to prevent such a problem occurring?

-Patients should follow a low protein diet, but it does not mean they should avoid protein. How much protein intake the child should eat depends on CKD stage, lab results, body size and other health conditions.

-In the long run, you had better choose some natural therapies for the child. In China, there are many therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, foot bath, full bath, steam therapy, enema therapy, etc. They can remove immune complexes from the blood to alleviate inflammation.
