What’s the problem?
HUS treatment in children tends to be self-limiting, and supportive care including intravenous fluids for rehydration and rebalancing of electrolytes is sometimes all that is needed. Blood transfusions are only used for the most severe cases of anemia. Kidney damage can be managed by observation and supportive care, and dialysis is not often required.
Adults with hemolytic uremic syndrome tend to become more ill and need more aggressive therapy than children with the condition. In addition to supportive care, plasmapheresis or plasma exchange may be required. Since it is thought there is an abnormal chemical in the plasma stimulating the abnormal clot formation, removing the plasma and replacing it with donor plasma can be helpful in treating HUS. Temporary dialysis may be needed while awaiting recovery of the kidneys from the illness.
