Treatment involves the use of non-immunosuppressive therapy in all patients. In patients who do not respond adequately to non-immunosuppressive therapy or those patients who have a higher risk of progression to end-stage renal failure are generally offered immunosuppressive therapy as well. Several immunosuppressive regimens have been shown to be successful. Agents that have been utilized include corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone), cytotoxic agents, calcineurin inhibitors, mycophenolate, rituximab, eculizumab, and ACTH. These agents modify the immune response and help decrease the formation of immune deposits in the glomerular basement membrane.

Blood pressure control is important for both renal and cardiovascular protection. For patient with proteinuria of more than 1 gram per day, the target for blood pressure is 125/75 mm Hg. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are cardioprotective and can reduce proteinuria and slow progression of renal disease. Patients with significant proteinuria almost always have elevated serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Although not proven, it is recommended to use statin agents to reduce cholesterol levels.

If patients got the long-term hypoalbuminemia, they can consider changing the oral warfarin anticoagulant therapy.
