My name is Quinn Philip. My wife experienced a total kidney failure as a result of inflammation of the kidney also known as Lupus nephritis. This was very challenging as a husband and a father. After a successful kidney transplantation surgery and proper treatment, she got back her life. I came to realize that other people with such a problem need attention, care, advice and support. I am here to do the little I can in helping you if you let me. I hope to share my experience and give advice/support. Feel free to send me a message anytime.

Thanks a lot Phillip. I need your experience & advice, we can't do Kidney transplantation in case of my mother, as she is already ILD patient. so we are trying to slow down this process. at what stage your wife was, when detected with CKD & how much time took to kidney failure? did she faced the same complications of severe stomach & back pain, or is this means that if she is having severe pain so this is inflammation of the process. what other things we can do to serve her better. I appreciate your quick response. Thanks

I just sent you a private message. Going by my experience, I also forgot to mention that continues healthy eating can slow down this process. Reduce the intake of cholesterol and salt. Her health condition is characterized with severe pain. For now, I strongly advise that you consult your doctor on the proper diet she should take and if she should continue taking the already prescribed drugs. Please respond to my message as soon as you can. Thanks.
