Discussion of treatments for Hemolytic uremic syndrome:

Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome: NIDDK (Excerpt)

Once HUS develops, there is no known treatment that can stop the progress of the syndrome. Unfortunately, it must run its course. Most treatments are supportive in nature and aimed at easing the immediate symptoms and signs of this disease and at preventing further complications. Supportive therapy consists of maintaining specific levels of fluids and salts, which are replaced only as needed. Blood transfusions (packed red blood cells) are sometimes needed. Treatment of high blood pressure is often necessary. Dialysis is also needed at times to help the kidneys perform their function. Other complications, such as neurologic complications, necessitate additional medications. (Source: excerpt from Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome: NIDDK)
