Steroid-Dependent Nephrotic Syndrome Affected 7-Year-Old Child Improved Remarkably With Homeopathy
Nephrotic syndrome is a kidney disorder characterized by a loss of protein through the urine. Children usually get affected by it. It can be stressful for the parents when the child may turn dependent on a large dose of steroids, and it produces lots of side effects on the child’s health. Fortunately, you have homeopathy to treat the condition effectively and safely. Let’s have a look at a case of the nephrotic syndrome affecting a child which homeopathy treated incredibly.
A 7-year-old boy from Tamil Nadu was suffering from nephrotic syndrome. His parents contacted Life Force Homeopathy for the treatment. He started online treatment from us on 6th October 2021.
The child was suffering from nephrotic syndrome for the last four years. He was suffering from its frequent episodes. It was usually once in two months. The child was on steroids. Whenever they reduced the dose of steroids, the condition was relapsing. There was swelling around the eyes and protein loss present in the urine. In detailed history, it was also found that the child had a cough and cold a few days back and that triggered his nephrotic syndrome.
The child had an average appetite but it was increased due to the intake of steroids. He loved eating eggs and chicken. His thirst for water was average. The child had no complaints related to the urine and stool. His sleep was normal and refreshing.
Psychological Make-Up and Medical History:
The patient was studying in school. He was a very active child. He used to cry and shouts if things won’t go this way. No other major illnesses were noticed affecting him in the past and his family.
At Life Force:
After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed some research-based homeopathic medicines along with dietary tips.
On 10th December 2021, the patient’s parents reported that he was overall better with the medicines. The patient had no episodes since he started with the homeopathic treatment. His urine protein was negative. The swelling around his eyes was no longer present. He was tapering the dose of steroids and there was no relapse noticed till now. The patient’s parents were very happy with the progress.
On 9th February 2022, the patient’s parents updated that their child was better but he got relapsed in the last 15 days. It was noticed that the steroid dose was tapered to a very minute dose that triggered the episode. He also developed a cold and cough in the past 8 to 10 days. Based on this feedback, Dr. Shah revised the medicines and gave a new set of medicines to the patient.
On 1st April 2022, the patient’s parents updated us that he was perfectly fine with the medicines. There was no acute episode of nephrotic syndrome in the last 4 months. His urine protein was nil. The child had stopped steroids, and he was only on Homeopathy.
On 23rd May 2022, the patient’s parents reported that the child was perfectly fine now. There was no relapse in the past 5 months. His steroids were completely stopped, and the child was only on homeopathic medicines now. His overall immunity was improved after starting with homeopathic medicines.
His patient’s parents thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for treating him and improving his health. He is continuing treatment to get completely better.
This case illustrates that homeopathy is highly effective in treating nephrotic syndrome in children incredibly and safely without any side effects. Homeopathy also helps eliminate the dependency on steroids.
