Treatments for Nephritis in Children

At Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, we'll put our extensive pediatric kidney care expertise to work on your child's nephritis. The good news: most children recover from nephritis. 

Sometimes medicine or even dialysis is needed to remove extra fluid and control 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. 

Our pediatric nephrology treatment sometimes includes plasmapheresis, which is a process to remove harmful proteins from your child's blood. You'll also find the newest discoveries here. Our scientists and physicians are leading important clinical trials and research into new therapies for nephritis.
