    What’s the best change you’ve ever made for your kidney health?

    Living with a kidney condition requires a person to make a lot of change — big ones, small ones, temporary ones, forever ones.

    Some of those changes can be hard to swallow because they are ones we never thought we’d have to make (like leaving a job). But sometimes the changes can be for the better. Maybe your health made you slow down so you can spend more time with your family. Change up your diet? Focus more on your mental health? Explore a new, more flexible career path?

    What has surprised you most about living with a kidney condition?

    For a lot of us, the timeline of our lives can be broken into two parts: who we were before we got diagnosed and who we are now.

    That change also comes with a lot of challenges, but not all of them are expected. Has there been one particular aspect that’s surprised you the most (good or bad)?

    Maybe you didn’t realize how tough it would be to stay hydrated or keep up with your treatment plan, or perhaps you were shown just how strong you really are.

    Whatever they may be, share your surprises with us in the comments below.

    What’s been your experience with kidney stones?

    Kidney stones can be very uncomfortable and painful regardless of what’s causing them, but did you know that there are many causes of kidney stones? Gender, ethnicity and genetics can all affect how likely a person is to experience kidney stones. Some health conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, can also increase a person's risk. Another health condition that can cause kidney stones is primary hyperoxaluria type 1, or PH1, a genetic rare disease that mainly affects the kidneys.

    If you or a loved one has ever experienced (or are currently experiencing) kidney stones, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about what might be causing them.

    P.S. For more information and resources about PH1 in particular, follow our #PH1 page (or make a post of your own!), or join our PH1 Support group to connect with others who understand.

    Angiomyolipomas in kidney and simple liver cysts. #angiomyolipomas #liver #KidneyPain #abdominalpain #diverticular Disease

    I have had a number of seemingly unrelated symptoms but more recently a number of them got worse. I had an ultrasound and ct scan which showed a simple liver cyst (does not say what size), diverticula (not inflamed) and angiomyolipomas on left kidney (1.1 cm). My doctor says no way pain from liver or kidney blames everything on digestion. Does anyone here have ever had any experience of pain from a simple liver cyst? This seems to flare up for few days then eases off. I usually get nausea and bloating with this. Lying on my right side recently seemed to trigger it off for 2 days. It also flares up temporarily when I exercise (running or long cycles). It is located in top right abdomen under ribs and flares up to shoulder and even back sometimes. Got all clear from gall bladder.
    I also get some pain in my left side/back (kidney?) that comes and goes but this is currently not bad. Along with periods of proteinuria and 'moderate kidney disease' (creatinine high, low egfr). Tired of being ignored by doctor who blames everything on stress.

    Tired

    I haven’t slept very well the last few nights. I woke up early morning around 5 ish to take a potty break and I fell and I’ve fallen a lot lately but this is the first time it’s really scared me. So I’m gonna go back to bed and try starting over because I’m in a lot of pain. Didn’t bump my head just lower back pain and left hip pain. #fall #BadStartToDay #KidneyPain #hippain #ImOnly27 #Lupus #Fibromyalgia #ouch #BabyItsColdOutside #Walker
