I am 23yrs. old and I have Autoimmune Liver failure and Chronic Kidney Disease stage 3. I go to a Kidney specialist twice a week and I take alot of Diuretics(I guess that's how you spell it). I was scared I have been living with this for 1yr and still I am scared. I am not to the point where I need a kidney transplant yet but I do need a liver transplant. But the main thing to this CKD and Liver disease is you must tell the Dr. of any new changes and build a bond with them, take all your meds and you can respond ask me anything I will tell you about this as much as I know. Surround yourself around positive people take it on day at a time.
Hi Texas rose, welcome to the forum! you will meet some great people here. I am sorrry you have been having kidney problems. I can't actually say that have them. Several months ago they said I had a Mass in my right kidney. after several tests they relized it was cyst that I have had for a long time. It just sometimes gets bigger and causes pain. They said there was no point in draining it because it would come back so fortunately I I have more pain free days than bad days. I have to take diureetics daily to keep fluids down. I hope your doctors are able to get a handle on this for you and that you wiol get some good info from the people here. It seems you already have. Just please know that you are not alone anymore we share each others others pains and strengths. Please keep posting ann let us get to know you better
