A 4-year-old child, Mast. S.S. (PIN: 31177) from Odisha started online treatment on 6th February 2017 for his complaint of Nephrotic syndrome.

He used to suffer from acute episodes of nephrotic syndrome once in three months. He was on a high dose of steroids (Omnacortil). There were swelling and puffiness near his eyes and belly area. The child was not suffering from any pain or discomforts. The urine report of the patient showed that the protein was high. He had developed side-effects of the high dose of steroids. The child had started developing skin rashes on his face. Also, the child was suffering from the complaint of recurrent cold and cough.
His appetite had increased due to the side-effects of steroids. He was eating more than an average child of his age. He loved to eat cake, biscuits, chocolates, etc. His sleep was normal. There were no complaints with regards to his urine and stool.

After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed him Kali Carb 30 and some research-based homeopathic medicines to the patient.
On 31st March 2017, parents updated feedback online. He was stable with the medicines. The parents of the patient reported that he was on conventional (allopathic) as well as homeopathic medicines. Since he had started with the homeopathic treatment, the relapse of nephrotic syndrome had stopped. His urine protein had started reducing gradually. His pediatrician had tampered the dose of steroids (Omnacortil). There were mild cold and cough affecting the child. On the basis of this feedback, he was prescribed further medicines.
After 6 months of the homeopathic treatment on 6th August 2017, parents of the patient updated that no relapse had occurred after starting with medicines from Life Force. He was advised to stopped steroids (Omnacortil) now. His urine protein had become nil. He was overall better with the medicines. His appetite had become normal.

On 30th May 2018, his feedback was given by his father. He informed that the child is doing very fine with the homeopathic medicines. There was no acute episode of nephrotic syndrome since he had started with the homeopathic treatment. His steroids were stopped completely. The child’s health was improving overall with the medicines.
On 28th November 2018, the patient was reported to be completely fine. There were no health issues affecting the child. All his reports were within the normal limits. His parents were very happy and satisfied with the treatment.
They thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for helping their child to eliminate the dependency on steroids and, thereby, preventing its harmful side-effects on the kid’s body. The child is perfectly fine and normal now.
This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating nephrotic syndrome in children successfully and safely without any side-effects. Homeopathy helps eliminate the need and dependency on steroids and helps prevent the risk of side-effects.
