Nephritis in Children

About Your Child's Care and Condition

Our children's kidney experts will do an evaluation of your child's nephritis condition to identify the cause and provide treatment recommendations. Sometimes, medicine or even dialysis is needed to remove extra fluid and control the high blood pressure. If your child’s illness gets worse quickly, we may prescribe other medicines to help the immune system function the way it should. 

Spectrum Health also has scientists and doctors leading important clinical trials and research into new ways to treat nephritis. It’s one of the reasons we’ve been nationally recognized for treating kids with kidney troubles.
