FSGS gone away? I went to the DNA (Dallas Nephrology Associates) website and didn't see anything on FSGS! I remember that the basketball player had this, but now it says he had CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). So does that mean that FSGS is now being called CKD? That lumps all of the other specific kidney problems that people have together. My friend was asking me what I had the other day and she said she couldn't find much information about it. If it has changed to CKD, then no wonder! Now we have different stages of Kidney Disease? What is GFR? All I've really been told about my kidney disease, is to watch my creatinine level and my protein output. I think I can kind of remember that if you spill more than 1,000 grams of protein in a 24 hour period, then that causes more scarring of the kidneys? I could have this totally wrong so feel free to correct me. I got most of my information at diagnosis more than 8 years ago so my brain may not quite retain all the info. correctly!
