- Treatment of nephronopthisis is symptomatic as no therapy exists to prevent the progression to end stage renal failure. Management includes:

- 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
