I posted this in the Lupus forum, but I thought I would share with you guys also! I have kidney disease secondary to Lupus. It started with major protein spilling. I was on dialysis from September 08 until March of 09 and then my kidneys improved out of the blue! Well, a couple of months ago I started spilling protein again ( 5 grams in a random sample). Well, I went to the nephrologist last week and my protein is down to 2grams and my creatinine is down to 2.0!!! Woo-hoo! When I started dialysis I had 6% kidney function and my doc really felt that a transplant was inevitable. Now here I am improving and off dialysis! Please don't ever lose hope!!!! God Bless You All, Judy
