My kid has Nephrotic Syndrome. Initially he got it at 3 years of age and later on wards every 14 months he relapses. Now his age is 6 running. Is there any other treatment?

There are a number of treatments for nephrotic syndrome, but in cases of recurrent relapse of the disease in children, it is often necessary to perform a kidney biopsy in order to know the exact disease that is being treated, as there are a number of kidney diseases that can manifest the nephrotic syndrome.  I suggest that you consult with a pediatric nephrologist about whether a kidney biopsy should be done in order to make a specific diagnosis and that may suggest possible treatments for the disease.
