Abdominal Pain in Children with Nephrotic Syndrome

Abdominal Pain in Children with Nephrotic SyndromeSome children with Nephrotic Syndrome suffer from abdominal pain. As their parents, you may be very curious about what cause abdominal pain in children with Nephrotic Syndrome and how to relieve the pain. Now let’s look for the answer in the following article. You can also acquire the answer directly from online doctor.

Causes of abdominal pain in children with Nephrotic Syndrome


Heavy proteinuria is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. Children with Nephrotic Syndrome are at high risk for peritonitis during the period of heavy proteinuria. Abdominal pain may be a clinical manifestation of peritonitis.

-Abdominal dropsy

Because of protein leakage, fluid in blood flows to tissue space, leading to swelling. In some severe cases, children get a large swelling in their abdomen. Abdominal dropsy may make them feel pain.

-Side effects of steroids

Steroids are the most common used drugs for Nephrotic Syndrome. These medicines have many side effects. Abdominal pain may be caused by their side effects.

In addition, sepsis, electrolyte disorder and hypovolemia may also be the contributors of abdominal pain in children with Nephrotic Syndrome.

Treatment for abdominal pain in Children with Nephrotic Syndrome

If your children experience abdominal pain frequently, you should talk with your doctor to find out its causes and then suit the remedy to the case. Do not give painkillers optionally without the instruction of doctor, because most painkillers have renal toxicity, which may speed up kidney failure. There are also some other therapies to help your children relieve pain, such as massage and hot compress.

The fundamental way to prevent abdominal pain in children with Nephrotic Syndrome is to control Nephrotic Syndrome and eliminate its clinical manifestations. Western medicines, such as steroids are effective in eliminating symptoms, but they can not remove those immune complexes from the kidneys (It is immune complexes that cause protein leakage and kidney damage). Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy penetrates micronized herbs into the damaged kidneys and then decomposes those deposited immune complexes..This therapy can also improve blood circulation to help kidney self-healing. After a period of treatment, symptoms associated with Nephrotic Syndrome disappear and you can also give up steroids.
