Case Report


Introduction: Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is a glomerular disorder characterised by peripheral oedema, heavy proteinuria and hypoalbuminemia, often hyperlipidaemia. Patients generally present with oedema and fatigue. Complementary and alternative therapies have been widely used in the treatment of NS. The homoeopathic treatment for NS could be a safer approach to treating the disease.

Case Summary: This is the case of a 32-year-old man who presented with NS with membranous nephropathy and was successfully managed with individualised homoeopathic medicine, Natrium Sulphuricum over 1 year. The case was followed up with documentation of clinical symptoms and investigation reports findings. Changes in the health status of the patient were measured by the ‘outcome in relation to impact on daily living instrument’ (ORIDL).
