What Can I Do for My Child with Nephrotic Syndrome

What Can I Do for My Child with Nephrotic Syndrome“My child is having Nephrotic Syndrome. What can I do?” As the parents of Nephrotic Syndrome, we often concern about the health of our children. We can not replace the children to suffer from their physical malaise, but we should know how to take care of our children and prevent their progression to kidney failure. Go on reading, you will learn more corresponding information.

Make a balanced diet for Nephrotic Syndrome children

-Children with Nephrotic Syndrome often have swelling and high blood pressure. In this case, you should restrict their intake of salt. But it does not mean they should avoid salt, because salt free may make the children feel weak, nausea, vomiting, etc. Generally speaking, salt intake should be controlled into 1-2 g per day.

-You should also pay attention to their intake of protein. As we all know, children with Nephrotic Syndrome have massive protein urine. But it does not mean the children should supplement a lot of protein, because it may worsen their proteinuria. If your child still have normal kidney function, 1.2-1.8 g/kg protein intake can supplement the lost protein and satisfy the need of body. If your child have impaired kidney function, limit the protein intake.

Arrange proper timetable

Children easily become overactive so that they can not have a good rest. Overwork decreases your immunity so as to expose them to more diseases.

Keep your children clean

Infection is an inducement of relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome, so we should make them bathe frequently and keep their cloth clean to prevent skin infection.

Watch their intake of medicine

In order to prevent infection, some patients use antibiotics. Some antibiotics have renal toxicity, which may worsen kidney damage. Besides, when Nephrotic Syndrome gets in remission, do not stop the medicine or reduce their dosage without the instruction of doctor.

What can I do for my child with Nephrotic Syndrome? Besides the above aspects, you should find a natural treatment to protect their kidney function and prevent kidney failure. For more information, please contact online doctor.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
