Hi to the amazing people in this group. My partner has been diagnosed very recently after two month of stress and fear of unkown that he has kidney disease and been confirmed with kidney biopsy of being IgA nephropathy. He is 37 year old, very fit runner, super active person. Only gets hey fever and bad allergies from childhood. No other meds or conditions. He does trail running over mountains. So you can see this condition was totally out of blue for us. During a random checkup at GP we found out his proteinuria is significant and initial eGFR was 69. His 24hr urine showing 1.3 gr protein leak, creatinine 106, Gfr of 70-80 fluctuating, all other tests normal. We will see his nephrologist in few weeks but been informed of the preliminary results. I am quite concerned for his future, how is prognosis? Is treatment effective? We are on the way to have our wedding and planning to have babies soon. Is this can transfer to our kid? And how he can keep kidney function normal, he is very fit and we usually do alot of semi athletic training. Is this condition gonna affect his future? Please share me your thoughts and experience.... i m very upset about it though he is quite positive to be alright. Any thoughts and suggestions for diet appreciated.
Thanks so much
