    Hi, I was diagnosed with mcd and nephrotic syndrome 2 years ago.  It did no take long for the doctors learn that I also have FSGS.  The treatment is took a good 1 and a half years to get it under control. Hang in there!  Surround yourself with friends/family.  I am finally in a partial remission and feel like my self again (which I thought would never happen). Be very careful with the prednisone. Prayers help a ton!

    An organization called Nephcure is outstanding.  I found it early on and since then both my husband and I have become very involved.  The resources are incredible.    Ask me any questions, the treatment is hell and and made me feel embarrassed.  The prednisone can cause major damage, I had to have one hip replaced, pending the other.  Talk to your neph about that one...

      Thanks dimarie! appreciate your support!

      I'm dealing with n-s-mcd since i was 2 years old (for 27 years).. I dont take prednisone anymore cuse i'm steroid-resistance, Today i treated with cyclosporine and for 4 months found in remission.

      Everyone says cyclosporine doesn't have side effects, i dont think so.

      I'd love to know if anyone else think like me...??

      looking for alternative treatments,
