Developing a Treatment Plan That Works for You
Talking about treatments with your doctor may get a little confusing at times. This section will try to break this information down into easy-to-understand terms.
To start with, your doctor may prescribe more than one type of treatment for you. For example, one part of your treatment plan may work to reduce your proteinuria. Meanwhile, another part of your plan may treat the condition that caused your nephrotic syndrome in the first place. And lastly, other treatments may be given to help manage other medical conditions related to nephrotic syndrome.
Keep in mind, the below material is provided to begin to help inform you. This is not meant to be a complete list of treatments. Only you and your doctor can work together to choose a treatment plan that may be right for you.
