No test: These is no test available to test for homosexuality. May i recommend talking with him instead? Reassure him that as your son you will always love him and be prepared to support him if he does confide that he is gay. Gay youths have higher rates of being bullied, suicide, and depression; knowing he has your support can make a life changing difference.

Depends on pbm: Your ? Does not list the origin of the problem. Loss of fcn can be attributed to structure/blockage/infection/ metabolism. Any or all may have differing outcomes. A top question in my mind is the potential for hypertension from changes in the weak kidney & or progressive loss of function.Close followup with your physician and a frank discussion of the future surveylance needs are in order.
