Ok so my SO and I have a child together. When my SO was about 4 he had kidney failure that nearly killed him... along with other unexplained illnesses. So this condition that my SO had... I'm not sure if it's genetic or not so I asked his parents the name of the condition (just in case my son starts to show signs)... ok so the name of the condition that almost took their only child's life and NO-ONE seems to remember the name??? I am beginning to think that she was accused of MBP and doesn't want to tell me. Am I just being paranoid??? Does anyone know the name of a condition, not common in 4 y/o's that can cause kidney failure?
Acute kidney failure may be due to bacterial infection, injury, shock, heart failure, poisoning, or drug overdose. Treatment includes correcting the problem that led to the failure, and in rare cases requires dialysis. Chronic kidney failure involves a deterioration of kidney function over time. In kids and teens, it can result from acute kidney failure that fails to improve, birth defects, chronic kidney diseases, or chronic severe high blood pressure. If diagnosed early, chronic kidney failure can be treated. The goal of treatment usually is to slow the decline of kidney function with medication, blood pressure control, and diet. At some point, a kidney transplant may be required.

Can your Husband ask his Doctor if there is anything in his records about it? Once he stopped seeing a Pediatrician, his regular Dr, should have received records on previous illnesses, especially if it was a bad one. Go back & call his Doctors. Does he have kidney issues now? If he had kidney failure then Did he have Dialysis? What were his Doctors names? What about school medical records?? The whole thing sounds weird and the fact that his own mother has no records or recollection sounds even weirder????
