Kid's Nephrotic Syndrome Treated with Homeopathy

Nephrotic syndrome is a kidney disorder characterized by significant proteinuria, edema, hypoalbuminemia, and hyperlipidaemia. Conventional treatments typically involve corticosteroids and immunosuppressant’s, which can have adverse effects and may not always, be effective. Homeopathy offers an individualized approach, focusing on stimulating the body's self-healing mechanisms. This case study highlights the effective management of Nephrotic syndrome in a paediatric patient using homeopathic treatment at Life Force Homeopathy.


Case Presentation:

A 7-year-old girl (Patient Identification Number: 50123) visited Life Force Homeopathy's Jayanagar Branch on December 18, 2022, with a two-year history of Nephrotic syndrome. Her symptoms included significant edema around the eyes and ankles, and foamy urine. Laboratory tests confirmed proteinuria (>3.5 g/day), hypoalbuminemia, and hyperlipidaemia. Previous corticosteroid treatment had provided limited improvement and caused side effects like weight gain and mood swings.

Her initial episode occurred in August 2020. She experienced her first relapse in March 2021 (1.5 months after stopping steroids), the second relapse in September 2021 (1.5 months after stopping steroids), and a third relapse in November 2022 (6 months after stopping steroids).

A comprehensive case history was taken, including her past ailments, family medical history, and details of her previous treatments. A detailed examination considered both her mental and physical health.


Patient Profile:

The patient, a vegetarian, preferred sweet and salty food, had reduced thirst (drinking less than 500 ml of water daily), average sweating, and good tolerance to extreme heat. Her bowel movements were regular, and she had no urinary symptoms. She slept soundly at night.

Her developmental milestones were normal, and she was a well-adjusted, active, and outgoing child, excelling in her studies and enjoying activities like dancing, singing, and drawing. She was particularly close to her grandparents but was reluctant to share her belongings. She had a strong memory, logical thinking, and notable intellectual abilities.


Treatment and Follow-Up:

Dr. Shah reviewed her case history in detail and prescribed a customized homeopathic treatment plan.

First Follow-Up (March 5, 2023): The patient was stable, and her steroid dosage was being tapered.

Second Follow-Up (May 7, 2023): Steroid treatment was completely stopped.

In subsequent follow-ups, there were no signs of relapse. The patient has been off steroids for over a year, experiencing no further episodes of Nephrotic syndrome. This outcome has provided immense relief to both the patient and her parents.



This case demonstrates the potential of homeopathy in managing Nephrotic syndrome by addressing underlying imbalances and promoting the body's natural healing processes. The personalized treatment at Life Force Homeopathy led to significant improvement in the patient’s condition, allowing her to discontinue steroids and other medications, greatly enhancing her quality of life. The patient's family expressed profound gratitude to Dr. Shah and the Life Force Homeopathy team for their dedicated care and effective treatment.
