My friend has been diagnosed with both liver and kidney disease. He wont discuss it at all. He has lost at least six stone, is around 7stone now and looks terrible!!
 
His mum/father and himself have been heavy drinkers for as long as I can remember (he's only 39) and although im not sure whether this is the cause of his disease I can only assume it is.
 
What is the process of his treatment if any and will he live to see a good few years ahead of him? He still drinks and this is what concerns me. Any info would be helpful. kind thanks

Do you know what kind of kidney and liver disease?
UC Pancolitis: dx'd 2000; 6th Remicade 11/25/11, next 1/19/12. Kidney Disease (Minimal Change Disease): dx'd 2007 caused by 5ASA's (thank you sulfsalazine, lialda and asacol). Current meds: Remicade & prenatal vitamin. I feel better than I have in years being off the ton of medication I was on before.
