I just found out my dad has stage 3 kidney disease. I'm seriously worried my dad is my world, the only parent I really have ever had.. I'm reading every bit of information I can find does anyone have any information on ways I can help him with the side effects physically and mentally, life expectancy, treatment options, progression of stages,and exactly what he's about to go threw? PLEASE help I'm so scared and I know he is too but I know it will help if I have someone to talk to that has witnessed this. Thanks

try nephcure.org that is a site that has a lot of information on kidney disease. I am sorry that you are all going through this.
UC Pancolitis: dx'd 2000; Remicade since 4/25/11, every 8 weeks. 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.
