A Teen Got Immense Relief From Nephrotic Syndrome Discomforts With Homeopathy

A 17-year-old male patient, Mr. A.K. (PIN: 12482) visited Life Force Homeopathy with the complaints of Nephrotic Syndrome on 3rd July 2016.

Each episode of the nephrotic syndrome would start with cold and cough, throat pain, and fever occasionally. In his reports, urine protein was present 1+. He had no swelling on the face/extremities. The frequency of his episode was once in 4 months (4-5 episodes of cold and cough per year). The duration of his episode was 8-10 days. His pediatrician used to prescribe him antibiotics and steroid medicines for a week or so.  The patient was taking Tab. Tacrolimus (Immuno-suppressant) 1 mg OD daily for the last 3-4 years.

 

His case history was noted in detail. After studying his case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed the best suitable homeopathic medicine to the patient.

On 11th November 2016, the patient’s mother informed that no episode had affected him since March 2016. He had not taken antibiotics since March 2016. From March 2016, he had no episode of cold and cough. He was taking Tab. Tacrolimus (Immuno-suppressant) 1 mg OD daily since the last 3-4 years. He was advised to consult the treating physician to reduce the dose.

On 26th December 2016, the patient’s mother reported that he had one episode of cold & cough in the last one month for 5 days but no episode of nephrotic syndrome. He had taken Syp. Azithromycin OD for 3 days.

 

On 9th February 2017, the patient’s mother reported that he had a relapse in the last 20-25 days. He had developed sudden swelling on the face and ankles 25 days back. His urine protein was 2++. The teen’s pediatrician had started Tab. Wysolone 40 mg daily for the first 10 days as his treatment. Then, Tab. Wysolone 40 mg was reduced to every alternate day. No acute episode of cold or fever had affected him.

On the follow-up on 15th March 2017, the patient’s urine protein was 1+. He was on Tab. Wysolone 30 mg every alternate day from 1st March 2017 and Tacrolimus (Immuno-suppressant) 1 mg OD daily. No acute episode of cold or fever had affected him.

The patient was stable after that, and his dose of Tab Wysolne was gradually reduced to 5 mg every alternate day since 1st June 2017 and then stopped. He was continuing Tab. Tacrolimus (Immuno-suppressant) 1 mg OD daily. No episode of cold had affected him.

 

On 12th October 2019, his mother said that he was completely better now.

On 28th February 2021, the patient visited us again. He was stable from 2019 to 2020 and was steroid-dependent. He had a major relapse in May 2020. Puffy cheek and foamy urine were the prominent symptoms that bothered him. The patient was on Tab. Pangraph 1mg BD since 2017, Tab Omnacortil 5 mg OD, and Tab Telma 20 mg OD. He had turned steroid-dependent and would experience a relapse if steroids were stopped. His urine protein was trace. His relapse used to get triggered due to acute colds, but its frequency had reduced as compared to earlier.

 

On 22nd April 2021, the patient was stable. No episodes had bothered him. His urine protein was nil. However, his BP was consistently on a higher side in March, so his dose of Telma was increased to 40 mg since 15 days as per his treating doctor's advice.

On 10th July 2021, the patient was stable. His general health was better, and his weight was improved. He had no episodes, and his urine protein was nil. New medication Tab Nodosis 500mg TDS was prescribed to him by his doctor. He was also on:

5. Syp. Kesol 20, 1 tsp, 1-0-1 after meals (with Gaviscon)

6. Syp. Gaviscon 2 tbsp after each meal (SOS acidity)

7. Candid powder after bath.

 

On 23rd August 2021, the patient was stable and his BP was in control. His urine protein was nil.

On 28th September 2021, the patient was stable and his BP was in control. His urine protein was nil. His medicine doses were reduced but his creatinine level was gradually increasing. With relief in his discomforts and improvement in his urine reports and other tests, he was glad to experience improved health with the homeopathic treatment.

The patient is very happy and satisfied with the treatment he received at Life Force and is continuing it for further recovery.

 

Conclusion:

This case illustrates how homeopathy helps in the better management of Nephrotic Syndrome. Homeopathy treats such cases of nephrotic syndrome in teens effectively, gently, and safely without any side effects. Also, homeopathy eventually helps in reducing the dependency on steroids.
