My niece has Nephrotic Syndrome and her kidney is down
Patient :My niece has Nephrotic Syndrome and her kidney is down to 30% efficiency. We recently learned that I am a blood match so I am wanting information on kidney donation. My real question is that I have heard the syndrome would end up killing even a new healthy donated kidney, is this true? Or would a donated kidney cure her syndrome?
