Hi everyone. I have not posted in awhile, but I could really use some feedback. My daughter is almost 12 and was diagnosed with FSGS in July of 2010. Just this past month, I lost my step mom. I have now reconnected with my step sister. She was very close to my dad. She just shared with me the cause of my dad's kidney loss was being exposed to agent orange during the Korean war. I was always told he drank his kidneys away. I am going to get in touch with his V.A. benefits personal to see if they can help me get more information. I am just wondering if any of you have ever heard of this? I did do a search on this site,and found a conversation from awhile back that addressed agent orange as part of a serviceman's kidney loss, but could it be possible that this is why my daughter has FSGS? If so, is there different treatments? I am sharing this info with her nephrologists,but I would love to hear from any of you on this subject. Thanks!!
