Just a quick question for everyone.......We have had a lot of "newbies" on HealthUnlocked lately and it seems like everyone has been grouped together as having CKD. Just as everyone of us is unique there are many causes and types of kidney disease. Maybe a "newbie" can relate to you if you both have the same kidney disease!#@
So, what is your kidney disease? Do you know what caused it? Let us know your story.
I have FSGS (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis). My native kidneys are all scarred up inside. My cause of FSGS was from strep/nephritis that I had when I was a child. It was 40 years later that I was diagnosed with FSGS. I had a transplant in 1999.
