My sister is suffering from minimal change disease..i.e., loss of protiene in urine.. Consulted nephrologist and he prescribed steroids and need to use the medicine for 6 weeks.. but while using this she is experiencing severe body pains, little edema (water retension) at foot. Can anyone suggest me that is MCD is curable and the above are the common for every patient who takes steroids.
Thanks in advance..

i wish you both well, and hope she recovers quickly .
I don't know how old you post is.
Buthe steroids do have lots of side effects and sometimes other drugs are required.
MCD is curable but often relapses.
Not as severe though.
