21 yr-old had 8 months of upper respiratory and urinary symptoms, felt caused by infections, and may have immune system disorder on test results.....?
Possible vasculitis: I would have an ANCA panel checked, especially with you saying you're having hematuria and proteinuria. There are a few conditions we refer to as pulmonary renal syndromes and they are all a type of vasculitis. Some of the names are Wegener's and Goodpasture's.See 9 more doctor answers

How much weight can a 44lb 7yr old lose during illness before indicating need to go in? Just keep hydrating & no worry?? (1lb+down in 10days) Flu-like
Probably good idea..: To get seen. Hydration is very important, and the expectation is that the appetite should rebound soon. If he's still experiencing fever or severe symptoms I'd still recommend getting him seen. If the symptoms are resolving you can monitor a bit longer. If the weight loss exceeds 5% (2.3 lbs) then that would be another reason to get seen.
I've had flu like symptoms for 2 weeks, I've been taking anti-biotic for 3 days now and still don't feel any better I've been taking anti-biotic for 3 days now and still don't feel any better, I've been going to work during the week and feel horrible.
The: The flu is caused by viruses, as such antibiotics will not be effective in treating the infection. It is not typical for the flu to last in excess of 2 weeks so, if you have not seen your physician, I recommend that you do so soon to determine the nature of your illness.
Approximately 1: Week, maybe shorter since you had the flu vaccine.
Influenza: Drink plenty of fluids, take aspirin or acetaminophen to control headache and other aches and pains, rest, and don't expose others e.g. cover coughs & stay home from work or school a few days. (Everything your mom did when you were little!) Otherwise sit tight; it will get better soon. If severe (high fever, bad head or muscle aching, bad cough) see a doctor for possible antiviral Rx e.g. Tamiflu (oseltamivir).

I have had cold/flu like symptoms for a week and my pharmasist suggested that I take theraflu sever cold and flu medicine. I still have these symptoms after a week of taking the medication. What should I take?
Cold: Get checked for allergies as long as you do not have fevers or chills. If you are coughing up colorful secretions then see your doctor for an antibiotic. Otherwise get plenty of sleep and eat well to get over this cold. Take a specific medicine for a specific issue. If you have pain take a pain reliever. Drainage, or congestion, an antihistamine or decongestant. Cough, cough suppressor. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
