Treatments for Juvenile nephronophthisis

  • Treatment of nephronopthisis is symptomatic as no therapy exists to prevent the progression to end stage renal failure. Management includes:
    • Aggressive management of high blood pressure - helps slow progression of renal disease. ACE (Angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitors and ARB's (Angiotensin II receptor blockers) are considered first line therapy
    • Avoidance of medications that may contribute to further renal damage - NSAID's, IV contrast
    • Smoking cessation - people who continue to smoke progress to end stage renal failure sooner
    • Aggressive management of urinary tract infections with appropriate antibiotics
  • more treatments...»
