Psychological Care for Children with Nephrotic Syndrome

Psychological Care for Children with Nephrotic SyndromeFor the growing children, Nephrotic Syndrome may bring some bad effect on both their physical and mental condition. In this article, we mainly discuss about psychological care for children with Nephrotic Syndrome. Hope it can help you.

To eliminate the patients’ fear and loneliness

Some inpatient children are at school age when they should have been very lively. But when they come to the strange hospital or clinic, they may be so horrible that they become shy, irritable and sad. This unhealthy emotion affects the therapeutic effect and prognosis. Therefore, as parents, we should comfort them and tell them that Nephrotic Syndrome can be controlled very well with proper treatment. Besides, introduce some new patients to them who have good curative effect so as to help them set up confidence.

To have a detailed introduction about Nephrotic Syndrome diet

In order to alleviate edema, the patients are often asked to follow a low salt or salt free diet, but this may make the diet so tasteless that children hardly accept it. Sometimes they may pretend to follow your advice, while they sneak other food. Therefore, we should tell them that salt intake is not good for recovery. And when we prepare the the food, we can add some other condiments to make the diet delicious, such as sugar, vinegar and sesame oil.

To let the children have a correct knowledge of medicine

Steroids are the most common used drugs for Nephrotic Syndrome, but if used for long term, they have many side effects, such as weight gain. Some children may tease the patients so as to make them feel self-abased. If they know it is caused by steroids, they may refuse to eat this kind of medicine. We should tell them that if they stop the medicine, Nephrotic Syndrome comes back again. Besides, we should find some natural treatment for kids with Nephrotic Syndrome to reduce side effects.

In addition, some children at school age may worry about their schoolwork so that they are depressed or anxious. In this case, we can assist them lessons.
