An 8-year-old boy from Bangalore, Mr. D.B. (PIN: 24832) started treatment online on 14th February 2015 at Life Force for his complaint of Nephrotic syndrome.
He was suffering from nephrotic syndrome for the past 1 year. The parents of the patient gave a detailed history of their child online. He was suffering from episodes of nephrotic syndrome every 15 days and it never used to stop without steroids. Whenever they tried to reduce the dose of steroids, a relapse occurred. It used to last for a few days. The child was on a heavy dose of steroids. A cold and cough were occasionally affecting the child. No swelling was present on the body. His urine protein was positive on the investigation.
His appetite was average. He was very fond of non-vegetarian food. His water intake was average. His sleep was normal.
The parents of the patient reported that he was a very stubborn child. He used to get irritated very easily. He was staying with his parents and a younger sister.
He never had any other major illnesses in the past. His grandfather suffered from hypertension and diabetes mellitus.
After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed him Sulphur 30 and some research-based homeopathic medicines.
On 10th May 2016, the patient’s father updated the feedback. The patient was improving with the medicines. He was still experiencing the relapses but the frequency of the episodes had reduced. He was still given the same dose of steroids, as whenever they tried to reduce the dose of steroids, the relapse occurred. The father of the patient also updated that, a few months, he got a lung infection for which he was given antibiotics for a few days. He was overall stable with the medicines.
On 7th June 2017, the parents of the patient reported that he was further better. There was no relapse affecting him for the past few months. His steroid dose was also reduced. He was on a very mild dose of steroids. There was a mild cold affecting the patient for which he was given conventional medicines. His urine protein was nil currently. He was getting stable with the medicines.
On 8th June 2018, the patient was reported to be further better. He was completely off the steroids for two months. Even after stopping the steroids, no acute episodes had affected the patient. He was overall better with the homeopathic medicines and the disease was completely under control now.
On 31st May 2019, the patient was updated to be absolutely normal. He was completely off the steroids for the past year and he was perfectly fine. No episodes of the nephrotic syndrome had affected him for one year. Occasional cold and cough were present with the child, but the disease did not relapse. His urine protein was nil. He was completely fine now.
His parents thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for helping their child to get rid of the side effects of steroids. The child is perfectly fine and healthy now. He is still under our treatment to get complete recovery.
This case illustrates that homeopathy is highly effective in treating nephrotic syndrome successfully and safely without any side effects.
