Hello Pitts25 and welcome!

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,

Bryoney

Note: Similar post several lines the page down (under "Chronic Kidney Failure") ; not sure if moderators can merge two items or not, but it might help in rare circumstances.

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

It's a sales pitch and most likely makes highly exaggerated claims with absolutely nothing to back them up. Don't waste your money; move on to a realistic product that can verify its claims.
