Hello...
I was diagnosed with Glomerulonephritis in 1992 - no history of kidney disease in family at all - career has been in an office - was in Viet Nam and was exposed to Agent Orange - question: is it at least possible that my kidney failure was caused by exposure to the chemicals found in Agent Orange?
