My son, aged 25, was diagnosed with glomerulonephritis approx one month ago. He has two shrunk kidneys. Left kidney 7.6*3.1*3.6cm, right kidney 7.2*3.6*3.3. Creatinine level from yesterday was 2.8, one month ago was 2.6. The doctor has been told he would need dialysis in three to five years. My son is very sad about his diagnosis. His mother would be willing to donate one of her kidneys if compatible.
His kidneys are really small for his age. Luckily the kidney function is still not too bad and there is hope of improving it if treated in time. Actually, he has had this disease for many years, but found it too late. I don't think it is glomerulonephritis, but the main damage is interstitial and tubular damage.
All the kidney disease can develop to kidney failure, but not all the kidney disease is the same. For your son's condition, it is not difficult to stop the interstitial fibrosis. His GFR is not as bad as other patients who have kidney failure.
I don't suggest his mother donate a kidney to him, because he doesn't need it now. One kidney is not better than two of his own. It is too early to consider kidney transplant. No matter he goes to which country for treatment, kidney transplant is not the top option, but the last.
To treat his disease, firstly, we have to stop the inflammation in the kidneys, secondly, to remove the immune complexes in the kidneys, then to clean the blood and repair the damaged kidney cells.
Creatinine level 2.8 and other abnormal symptoms are caused by the kidney damage and impaired kidney function. To deal with the root cause is the most important thing. If you need details about treatment schedule, feel free to leave us a message or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
