:I am not a physician, but have just read every article on this disease. There are some very encouraging studies being done with Fish Oil. If your physician is not familiar with these studies, then make an appointment with a leading nephrologist at a major medical center. Don't take that prognosis to heart. Keep checking.

I am new to this message board and wonder if anyone can give me some advise or direction. My husband who is 29 was just diagnosed with a kidney disease called IGA Nephropathy and has lost 70% of his overall kidney functioning and will continue to lose the remaining 30% over the next 3-5 years. When I asked the doctor about alternative medicines he of course said that there was nothing that really worked. I am not sure I agree with him and am interested in exploring all available avenues. Any advise or direction would be appreciated.
