In brief: No kidney damage

prognosis is favorable without kidneys being affected.
But lungs should certainly be watched very closely. Treatment options are favorable. Please ask her to work on stress management. This is vital as stress-emotional/physical/situational-can make disease worse. This is not theoretical. This is fact.
