Answer

A normal activity plan is recommended. Because viral respiratory illnesses are often associated with relapses of nephrotic syndrome, keeping children with INS away from those who have obvious respiratory tract infections may be beneficial. However, children should not be kept out of school and should have as normal a routine as possible.
