I have not been officially diagnosed with this disease however my aunt has been diagnoses and my mom died while on dialysis. My doctor is pretty sure that I have it but has not recommended a biopsy due to the risk and he said even if it was postitive that there was nothing much to do about that we are not doing now. He has put me on a low protein diet. I have not problems with high blood preasure. I do have gum diseas which my dental hygenist is very puzzled since I have taken excellent care of my teeth. She wondered about an auto-immune disease. I just recently found out that IgA is an auto-immune problem so it all makes perfect sense to me now. My question to any of you out there is this. Are there any vitamins to herbal products that will help this condition and are there some that will hurt this condition. I take coral calcium and other things such as grape seed extract. Does anyone know what the do's and don'ts of this diease are. Your doctor may know something that mine doesn't. Any help would be appreciated.
