So my boyfriend went to the Dr today; he got really bad news. He just called me a few minutes ago telling me that his kidneys are going bad... Has anyone ever dated or has a friend or family member that has had this?? He's 22 years young.. He's telling me not to worry about it & that we'll get thrut his... He's like we can get a kidney transplant and stuff. I'm sooo worried... Any advice or anything that helped you?? I'm really extremely worried and I love him sooo much!! We have a whole future planned and I'm so scared of death of losing him... Please help me!!
What caused the kidney failure in this case should be determined. Genetics? Reaction to meds? A secondary complaint, like a complication of diabetes? That has a lot to do with if he can regain function. My grandmother had kidney failure but she was in her 80's and diabetic. I wish you guys all the best. Pray for a good life and the strength to face the future as it comes. Good luck.
My son was born with a kidney disease that causes his kidneys not to function completely. The last tests showed both kidneys functioning around the 50% capacity and he lives a well, healthy life. Very active in sports, all over the place, happy. He's 11 now.
I am sorry you tow have to deal with this at a young age and at the start of your lives together. But that is a good thing. You have a ge on your side he is young and I am assuming healthy 22 year old. So try to not worry too much though I know it is hard to do. The important thing is that you are getting all the test ran and are finding out as soon as possible what can be done. Just make sure he eats and drink healthy especially lots of water and would probably be best to stay away from anything with caffeine in it as I know that caffeine is hard on the kidneys.
