I am new to the boards. I had to go and see a nephrologist because I was spilling protein in my urine. Well I had a biopsy done and got my results yesterday. Good New it's not Lupus (positive ana once).
Bad news biopsy show both minimal change disease and IgA Neph. and proteinuria. Really, didn't evern know you could have more than one kidney disease at a time. Not sure what will happen now. After reading up on both the outcome is different for both.
Doctor started me on like 8 meds. Predinsone (highest dosage you can have), cholestrol meds, calucium, Fish Oils, Bloop Presussure Meds, nexium and low-dose asprin (blood clotting disroder).
Can anybody help me to wrap my mind around this? I have to go back in 4 weeks for blood testing and 24 hour urine sample. Really scared about the predinsone (haven't heard good things about the side effects).
Any advice is welcomed.
