I am a 31yo female, I have celiac disease. Can I be a kidney donor, or should I be?

I am a 31yo female, I have celiac disease. Can I be a kidney donor, or should I be?

Probably : Since your kidney is not involved with the immune process that defines your celiac disease, it is unlikely that that tag alone would disqualify you.(or your kidney) Donation is major surgery and tissue compatibility and basic health would play a larger role in this process. Offering to donate if they accept you would be a great sign of support for the prospective recipient. ...Read more

My paternal grandma died of kidney disease.  Is that hereditary?  My dad has kidney stones and now i do.

Kidney disease: Most kidney disease and kidney failure comes from longstanding, poorly controlled high blood pressure and/or diabetes. Both of these diseases and chronic kidney disease can run in families. Nowaadays, it is rare for kidney stones by themselves to cause kidney failure. Regardless, it is a good reminder to carefully control high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney stones and kidney disease. ...Read more

Does a person who tends to get kidney stones have 'kidney disease?" Seems like my Urologist told me I have it. What steps 2 take to be healthy?

Not really: "Kidney disease" usually means actual long-term damage to the filters or tubules. Kidney stones can cause tubular damage if the kidneys get infected as a result. Your best move is to drink plenty of water, enough so your urine is never dark but always near-clear. Specific stone compositions have specific regimens that may help. ...Read more

Can a kidney stone with stent and lithotripsy (2months later) cause 4th stage kidney disease?

Can a kidney stone with stent and lithotripsy (2months later) cause 4th stage kidney disease?

Kidney disease: You need to see the urologist who placed the stent to get further information as soon as possible. If your kidney function was normal before the procedure, you have acute kidney disease which needs to be evaluated. If the urologist finds nothing wrong, go to a nephrologist to see if you have some kidney disease not related to your kidney stone or stent placement. See these doctors quickly. ...Read more

I have stage three kidney disease. Have been passing small black masses the size of kidney stones but cannot be analyzed. Dr. Has no clue. Any ideas?

Collect them: The small black masses could be clots, fungal balls, tumors, tissue from the urinary system. I suspect that stone analysis did not look at these other possibliities. Suggest submitting them to pathology for evaluation with a history and specific question. ...Read more

2 separate problems: Your biopsy shows that the renal (kidney) tissue, that which makes urine, is itself abnormal. The kidney stone is probably unrelated to the renal disease but could cause problems in the future if it moves and blocks the kidney. Be sure to tell your doctor about this if you develop pain in the future. ...Read more
