My name is Lauren and I am nine years old. I was diagnosed in May 2018 with FSGS. The doctors thought it was allergies, but they found protein in my urine, and from there they diagnosed me with Nephrotic Syndrome after a biopsy. FSGS has really changed my life, from the foods I eat to the medicines I take. I am even on high blood pressure medicine.
My faith has helped me every step of the way. Take your medicine on time, eat the right foods, and stay strong in your faith.
