What is iNSider?
iNSider is an online shared learning program for adults with nephrotic syndrome, parents of children with nephrotic syndrome, and their healthcare teams.

iNSider was developed with direction from patients and families to improve the quality of health information about nephrotic syndrome. Physicians, nurses and dieticians helped to assure the information is accurate.

You can explore individualized educational material about treatments, self-management strategies, log and print questions for your next nephrology visit, and invite your provider(s) to sign up for the tool.

If both you and your provider(s) sign up, they can input up-to-date treatments, suggest readings, and respond to your questions, all within the tool.
