Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Nephrotic syndrome is a kidney disease where damage to the glomerulus or part of the kidneys functions to filter blood and form urine. The exact cause of the damage is still unknown, but in some cases it can be caused by other diseases such as lupus, diabeter, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
The diagnosis of nephrotic syndrome is made based on several components, ranging from extracting history through interviews, direct physical examination, and supporting laboratory examinations of urine, blood tests and kidney biopsy to see a picture of tissue from the kidney itself through a microscope.
Treatment for nephrotic syndrome can vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity and possible causes. Generally the therapy given includes:
Corticosteroids, to suppress inflammation in the kidneys
Antihypertensive, maintain blood pressure and prevent protein wasted from the kidneys
Diuretics, help remove fluid that has accumulated in the body
Blood thinners, to prevent blood clots in nephrotic syndrome patients
Penicillin antibiotics, to prevent complications of infection
This therapy aims to stop the process of damage to the kidneys and prevent the progression of deterioration that occurs. The rate of recovery from this condition is very dependent on the cause, severity, and the body's response to treatment. Generally children with age can recover even though about 70% return to experience it again in the future.
