    Do I need dialysis?

    I was suddenly dignosed with CKD since January 2018 - everything was alright in December 2017. From January to August 2018, my creatinine steadily dropped with the help of a controlled diet and was 2.9 when I started accumulating fluid in my chest cavity. I was advised to go for a CABG which I did after which I needed dialysis as my urine output was NIL. After about 12 sessions of dialysis, my output reached a reasonable level and the creatinine started correcting. I was off dialysis for about 2....

    Renal agenesis

    I'm 15 and I was born with 1 kidney. I have an excuse of an immunity. I'm anemic and I don't absorb iron. My lungs suck so bad I feel lightheaded every time I step in the shower just because of the humidity. I can barely eat anything without feeling gross, but then again I have two bites and I'm full. I'm always tired, I can't remember when I last wasn't. My periods are like 3 weeks long and I have constant abdominal pain going on 3 years now. I'm on birth control....

    KIDNEY BIOPSY HELP PLEASE

    So I'm a 22 yr old female. I'm scheduled to have an kidney biopsy Wednesday the 13th and they told me I am supposed to watch the bleeding in my urine afterwards and that it should go away within a day but I think my period will come on either Tuesday night or that morning, how do I know if the bleeding is from my kidneys or my period? Can I still have the biopsy done if it comes on beforehand?

    UTI with kidney infection with Proteinuria

    greetings, I'm a 40 something usually very healthy person, exercises regularly. 6 weeks ago I noticed some swelling on my leg, bruising, that seemed to go away after a while. Over the period of the next few weeks I got more swelling with some side pain. For 3-4 weeks I was going from Dr. to Dr. focusing on my leg swelling which nobody seemed to be able to figure out. After x-rays, multiple blood tests, etc. etc. cancer was seemingly ruled out. I took a break from one week with continual leg swelling....

    Credible methods to help move stuck kidney stones

    I have a 4 mm stone stuck at the top of the ureter. My next MD appointment is in 3 weeks. In the interim I wish to do all I can to possibly get the KS unstuck. So, I drink a lot of water each day. I see many articles and utube videos making claims for the effectiveness of drinking a daily mixture of fresh lemon juice mixed with olive oil, or combinations of herbs. etc. Most of these information sources come from outside of recognized professional settings. My question is - are there any methods beyond....
