What percentage of kidney damage is considered curable ?

Hi , My wife age 22 has consulted a Neprologist and undergone Biopsy. Report says 40% of kidney damage. Her BP often gets above normal range and she encounters serious back pain . This is the first week of prescription and she is having Shelcal and Waysolone 20 mg thrice a day. Her creatine level is fluctuting between 2.1 to 2.4. Doc says lets wait and watch and can not conclude weather it s a permanant damage or curable. Also, she had to terminate her pregnancy a few weeks ago for the above reason.

hello,

The aim of therapy is to slow down or halt the progression of CKD .control of bp .use of ace inhibitors are helpful.it looks like a nephrotic syndrome.your dr. has provided you right drugsand follow them strictly.in adults prognosis is poor compared to children.avoid salts and saturated fat.progress of disease depends on the variant of fsgs(biopsy report).take care of her to the best.

My 98 year old mother was diagnosed with mitral valve regurgitation. She was placed on lasix and after 4 weeks became dehydrated as evidenced by an unexplained rash and itchiness on scalp and chest. Went to a dermatologist and the physician did not find any bug source, being that my mother resides in a nursing home. My mother s BUN rate was 90 but after being hospitalized for the past 2 days and hydrated with an IV is lowering now to 50. Her creatine level is normal as well as her glucose leves. Blood pressure is normal -146/72. They discovered a UTI for which the doctors are administering rocephin until they specify the exact bacterium. Results should be back today. She is on Celexa for mood elevation - which is questionable as to its efficacy (40mg daily for the past 2 years). A catscan yesterday revealed an enlarged liver which is pressing on the pancreas. They want to do an ercp scope to rule out gall stones - which she has no history of - what other tests should we run.
