Hello, my husband was just diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure, he is 29 yrs old.. I feel like he is literally dying.. He is always in pain & his function is at 30%... they said at 20% he will need a transplant. He has Diabetes & high blood pressure which caused this kidney failure. Last year this time his kidney's were perfectly fine. I am so scared and I don't know what I can do to help him. Any suggestions? View Thread
Hello, thanks for the response, I would FOR SURE donate to him! I'm not sure if I'm a match, but his kidneys are losing function really fast esp since last year his kidney function was perfect they put him on blood pressure meds and now he's all messed up. And hes losing a lot of red blood cells thru his urine. I know they want to do a transplant over dialisis, which i'm not quite sure why? This is all very new to me! We are not eeing a renal dietitian but we have an appointment Monday and I will for sure ask the nephrologist about that. He's my soul mate & I don't want to lose him View Thread
