Abstract

Case reports have linked childhood nephrotic syndrome to food sensitivity including gluten. We report our experience with 8 children (6 boys, 2 girls; age at implementation of special diet 2-14 years) with difficult-to-manage nephrotic syndrome who were placed on a gluten-free diet for 3.4 ± 4.3 years (range, 0.6-14 years) and who had clinical improvement enabling reduction or discontinuation in steroid dosage.
