Nephrologist 's  Response
Chances of recurrence of IgA Nephropathy are close to 10% and the chance of a graft loss ( meaning going back on dialysis) are even less. There is no test to predict which patient will have a recurrence.
We need to monitor appearance of blood in urine and amount of proteins in urine on a regular basis.

Your creatinine level is excellent, provided it has been stable.

The Uric Acid is definitely high. Do ask your Nephrologist if he started medications for that. Take a diet advice for low purine diet which will prevent further rise in uric acid.
