Nephrotic Syndromme

Nephrotic syndrome is a group of symptoms that include protein in the urine, low blood protein levels, high cholesterol levels, high triglyceride levels, and swelling.
Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder, which is characterised by

  1. Abnormal protein leak
  2. Low levels of proteins in blood (due to protein leakage)
  3. Increased levels of lipid
  4. Swelling of body parts (called edema)

Nephrotic syndrome can affect all age groups. In children, it is most common between ages 2 and 6. This disorder occurs slightly more often in males than females.

Causes:

Nephrotic syndrome is caused by different disorders that damage the kidneys. This damage leads to the release of too much protein in the urine. The most common cause in children is minimal change disease. Membranous glomerulonephritis is the most common cause in adults.
This condition can also occur from:

  • Cancer
  • Diseases such as diabetes, SLE, multiple myeloma, and amyloidosis.
  • Genetic disorders
  • Immune disorders
  • Infections (such as strep throat, hepatitis, or mononucleosis)
  • Use of certain drugs

It can occur with kidney disorders such as:

  • Focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis

Triggers do not always cause migraines, and avoiding triggers does not always prevent migraines.

Symptoms:

Swelling (edema) is the most common symptom. It may occur:

  • In the face and around the eyes (facial swelling)
  • In the arms and legs, especially in the feet and ankles
  • In the belly area (swollen abdomen)
Other symptoms include:
  • Foamy appearance of the urine
  • Poor appetite
  • Weight gain (unintentional) from fluid retention

Homeopathy has a well-defined and promising role to play in for the treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome. Experience based and evidence proven results indicate that the homeopathic treatment can offer following results:

  1. It can reduce the frequency of attacks of Nephrotic Syndrome
  2. It can reduce the duration of each episode of Nephrotic Syndrome
  3. It can reduce the attacks of frequent colds and infections, which in turn helps a great deal towards better control
  4. It can help in reducing the dependency on cortisone and cyclosporine.
