fsgs/nephrotic syndrome from below thread!

Postby rosa t » Fri Mar 30, 2007 10:05 am

:) Hi

I started out with nephrotic syndrome and following a kidney biopsy they diagnosed minimal change disease. The ummed and arrhed about fsgs but decided on minimal change.

to try and stop the protein leak i had prednisilone which didnt work so i had cellcept instead which reduced the protein leak but damaged my kidneys!

I now have fsgs and dont think about the ns too much anymore. in 90% pred does the trick. it didn't for me.

hope you get on ok.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift, that's why they call it present
