MY DAUGHTER WAS JUST DIAGONSED WITH KINDEY FAILURE LAST YEAR SHE IS ALMOST 5 YEARS OLD AND I WAS WONDERING SHE HAS A BACTERIAL INFECTION IS THAT BAD I DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THIS ALL CAUSE I AM NEW TO IT IF ANYONE HAS ANY ADVISE ON THIS PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANK YOU
I am very sorry to hear about your daughter's diagnosis. To get an understanding of what's going on with her, please sit down with her doctors and with your questions and get them answered. A message board can't address the specifics of your daughter's condition and you deserve specific answers.
You may want to write them down so you won't forget, and have someone with you to help listen to what the doctor says. I know it's a very frightening thing to hear, and having someone with you as a support can be very helpful.
Let your regular moderator Andie know how you and your daughter are doing when you have a chance,
Hi When I found out I was at stage 5, I started taking a drink called "GoldenStandarsKidneyStuff" if you type that in you'll go to the site, I also started a power antioxidant at the same time, within months I 'm at stage 3 off the dialysis and transplant list. I'm 60 years and a diabetic. Good luck Vinny
