Should Children with Nephrotic Syndrome Supplement Calcium

Should Children with Nephrotic Syndrome Supplement CalciumCalcium is an essential nutrient for bone formation. Should children with Nephrotic Syndrome supplement calcium?

Generally speaking, children with Nephrotic Syndrome easily suffer from calcium deficiency due to the following factors.

-Nephrotic Syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder that causes your glomeruli become leaky so that protein which should be retained in the body spills into urine, leading to proteinuria. With protein leakage, many nutrients lose as well, such as calcium. Calcium can combine with albumin in the blood and then be discharged out of the body, which can make body deficiency in calcium.
-Children are in a crucial period of growth and development so that their bodies need more calcium.

-Steroids and immunosuppressants are the common used drugs for Nephrotic Syndrome. They can inhibit kidney inflammation and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to stop protein leakage. But they have many side effects, for example, they affect your body to absorb vitamin D and calcium, leading to calcium deficiency.

In order to strengthen the absorption to calcium, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should pay attention to the diet. For children with Nephrotic Syndrome, there is no need to limit protein intake. With the help of dietitian, you can get a diet plan. In some severe cases, you should supplement calcium tablets.  Besides, you should seek treatment aggressively and find some natural remedies.

They can also cleanse the blood to reduce the damage to the body. Besides, they can decompose the deposited immune complexes to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, your children can regain their kidney function and lead a normal life.
