Comment from: mberneathy, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: February 23

Twelve years ago, both my kidneys failed because of the medications the doctor had me on. The hospital I went to was able to pull me through without dialyses. Now 12 years later, my doctor told me that my levels are down to 39 (whatever that means), and it was 41 last month, so now I get to go to a kidney specialist. I have a lot of very bad things wrong, the worst being rheumatoid arthritis and trying to stay out of a wheel cheer, but I will tell you the truth, this scares me.

QUESTION
