Key Words Nephrotic syndrome; Pediatric; Relapse; Zinc; Micronutrient
Core Tip Relapses in nephrotic syndrome (NS) increase morbidity and mortality. Studies have shown that zinc deficiency is common in NS. Zinc defi-ciency might lead to down-regulation of T-helper 1 (Th1) cytokines, a relative T-helper 2 (Th2) bias, and an increased risk of infection. The later commonly associated with relapse in NS. Zinc supplementation restores Th1-Th2 im-balance and may decrease relapse. The primary aim of this review is to evaluate the efficacy of zinc in preventing relapses in childhood NS (steroid sensitive and steroid dependent/frequent relapsing). The secondary aim is to evaluate the safety of zinc supplementation in this regard.
