Difference between bilateral kidney disease and bilateral kidney stones
My sister in law is trying to give her brother a kidney. They were a perfect match. Then after an x-ray that had been enlarged thousands of times they found kidney stones. Actually they were so small they called them kidney sand. She was told she couldn't give a kidney because she had bilateral kidney stones. All her numbers look wonderful and the Urologist said she needed to eat less meat and drink more water. We are confused. Could she have bilateral kidney disease or what could be the problem. I have heard that transplants happen even with stones. Can someone help us understand?
