welcome to health care magic
wegeners granulomatosis is disorder characterised by inflamation of blood vessels,,it may affect kidney lungs..reason for this is auto antibodies targeted to our own cells...
treatment facility is there for this disorder,,it contains coricosteriod and an immunosuppresive drug to supress the immune status for a period of 18-24 months..and to maintain remission new drug is approved that is RITUXIMAB...
regular maintenance is required after the treatment..

consult your local physician,he/she will guide you where to go..dont do late for this disorder..
hope you will understand my suggestion.
thank you
