Jennie, I do not know, but hope someone on here does. Because my kidneys seem to be operating OK, but I have a very swollen abdomen and have been concerned about liver and spleen (re: abx and babs) I think that kidneys would be in there, too.
Hope someone tells us how to check this or about our symptoms. There are TOO many things that can cause repeated kidney infections/UTIs, etc.
