I just found out last month that I have chronic kidney disease. It's a new experience for me. I am from Sudan and my whole family still in Sudan. I am fighting this disease myself, and I am only 23 years old.

I am 18 years old and I have been suffering from chronic kidney disease since I was born. I was born with a pair of weak kidneys and one of them is smaller than the other. This disorder causes a series of other health problems for me. I am now in stage 4, and I feel as if I have grown weaker over time. I've been in and out of the hospital several times.

I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease about two years ago from taking a certain medication. I have 50% loss, but have urinary tract infections constantly, suffer from fatigue, depression, and cramps. I see my kidney doctor every 4 months with updated blood tests. I also take high blood pressure medication which I didn't start until I retired from my stressful job (couldn't understand that), but I'm 65 and feel all used up.

I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease three years ago and I have been in terrible pain ever since. I suffer from kidney infections all the time and I have to go to the hospital for IV antibiotic treatments and control the pain. It is very upsetting. I am only 23 years old and I have a three-year-old son!

My doctor, the cardiologist and renal specialist have said I have chronic kidney disease and there is nothing they can do for me. They have given me a time limit of only months to live before my kidneys fail altogether.

I am a diabetic with high blood pressure which is kept under control with medication. Several years ago I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. More recently I have been itching and scratching which results in bruising. My doctor tells me that I have "fragile skin" but it appears it could be something more serious. I have an appointment with my doctor next week and will discuss it with him then.
