Is Prednisone OK for 5-year Old Child with Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is not an independent kidney disease but a group of symptoms. It can attack both adults and children. Is prednisone OK for 5-year old child with Nephrotic Syndrome?

Effects of prednisone on children with Nephrotic Syndrome

In fact, most children, with Nephrotic Syndrome, respond to corticosteroid drugs (prednisone, prednisolone) reducing the risk of serious infection. Therefore, it is generally OK for 5 years old child with this kidney disease.

However, they usually have repeat episodes, which are often triggered by viral infections. Based on four studies in children with frequently relapsing Nephrotic Syndrome, prednisone given for five to seven days at the onset of a viral infection reduces the risk of relapse.

Even though prednisone is effective for treating Nephrotic Syndrome, it can have serious side effects.

Other natural treatments for children with Nephrotic Syndrome

To treat this kidney disease from the root, I recommend parents to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

First of all, most TCM are plants, so they are very natural for children.

Secondly, our experts will change the types and dosage of the Chinese herbs, according to the children’ illness conditions. Here is a brief introduction about our treatment. Any questions, please email to or leave a message below.

I recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. When the child do that, they can sleep, watch TV or listening musics. This therapy can improve blood circulation by expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes. Therefore, kidneys can get clear blood volume and oxygen to repair damaged renal tissues. This is to treat Nephrotic Syndrome from the root.

Having been used in our hospital, Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, for almost 30 years, this therapy have helped many patient, including children at age 3-7 years old. If you want to take this therapy for your child, you can talk with our experts online for the details.
