    Didn't your Nephrologist do a biopsy?

    RE: Cause for my illness

    Maybe. But then again, maybe not. There are a lot of kidney diseases (some only recently discovered) that don't have a known cause. Kidney disease is a fairly new area of study and they still don't know more than they do know.

    Sorry, but for many of us, it's simply treat the symptoms you can in the ways that you can. And in a huge percentage of cases, finally getting to need dialysis is the end result.

    Do you have a potential donor and are you investigating kidney transplant? Believe me, it's way better than dialysis with a much longer life expectancy. I was on hemo for a year, tried PD, know people on home hemo, and am now 16 years post transplant. Feel free to ask me any questions.
