Nephrotic Syndrome (Children)

Nephrotic Syndrome (Children) - Symptoms

How do I know my child has Nephrotic Syndrome?
Your child will have gradual weight gain associated with swelling around the eyes, face, tummy and legs. 
These are the consequences of protein loss in the urine (proteinuria) and subsequent water retention in tissues.

How do we confirm that your child has Nephrotic Syndrome?
Blood tests will be done to measure the level of protein (albumin) in the blood and assess kidney function. 
Urine will be collected to check for the presence of protein.
