Parents of 3 years old boy N. S. availed our online treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome. He had 1st episode of Nephrotic syndrome in June 2010 with swelling on the face, abdomen, and feet and reduced urine output with proteinuria. He was given steroid medicines for four weeks and he recovered. He got a relapse and was again given 4 months steroid medicines with increased dosage, but still the urine protein was never reported nil. He underwent a kidney biopsy which showed focal segmental glomeruloscelrosis. He was then given a course of 6 injections of cyclophosphamide, once a month for 4 months. He was also taking steroid medicines in tapering dosage.
