minimal change disease

Posted By Mike Sublet on January 17, 1998 at 11:21:44:









   My son had too much protein in a urine test for the U.S. Army.
We have since had a specialist do another test to compare results.
The test shows double the normal amount of protein in his sample.
The specialist is  calling it Minimal Change Disease. He says it
is correctable with six months of treatment of Prednisone. I'm
wanting to get an opinion as to what the disease is and if the doctor
is giving us the straight answer. Thank You. My son is 17.
