Re: Shrinking Kidneys

It is my mom who has been told she has this problem. I am looking for some information for her. She is 76 years old. She does have some other health problems. She rescently found out she is diabedic.She did get a few bladder infections lately. I think that's what made her Dr. send her to a specialist. I wish my mother would ask more questions at her visits, but she doesn't.
