Nephrologist 's  Response
1)Diet: will benefit from a low salt, moderate protein diet.
2) it is difficult to predict the stage based on just a few findings on the biopsy. We need to look at blood and urine tests as well as response to therapy
3) this disease often needs treatment for months to years.
Good luck
