I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
I have been diagnosed with lupus nephritis for one year, and latest reports show my GFR has decreased to 47 and creatinine has risen to 2.7. Is this serious? Can you tell me how long can I live?
