Can Nephrotic Syndrome in Children Be Cured with Steroid Tablets

Question: My daughter is diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. She is just 4.5 years old and she has started on steroids tablet. Can it be cured and normally how long does it take to cure?

Can Nephrotic Syndrome in Children Be Cured with Steroid TabletsDoctor: Actually, many people with Nephrotic Syndrome or relatives suffering from this illness ask me about such a question like “Is there a cure for Nephrotic Syndrome?” “Can my child with Nephrotic Syndrome be cured?”. As for this question, I have to say: Nephrotic Syndrome in late stage can not be cured at all, as necrotic kidney intrinsic cells can not be revived on the basis of mordern medical technology. But for the kidney cells which are injured but still alive, they can be repaired well with a holistic treatment.

Steriod tablets are very helpful in treating Nephrotic Syndrome, as they keep bring illness under control quickly, which can help to slow down illness progression. However, they can not repair injured kidney intrinsic cells, so when patients reduce medicine dose or stop taking medicines, Nephrotic Syndrome relapses easily. This is the reason why Nephrotic Syndrome patients always experience repeated relapse of illness.

Lastly, although Nephrotic Syndrome can not be cured when develops to advanced stage, but as injured kidney intrinsic cells can be repaired well with systematic treatment like Immunotherapy, it is quite possible for patients to live a normal life again. Usually, the earlier the patients receive treatment, the better the treatment effects are. Therefore, not only the treatment method, timely treatment is also very important for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to live a high quality life.
