a kidney transplant only to find the unknown disease in the transplanted kidney. They wanted to give me chemotherapy and after researching I found studies that proved fish oil, matcha green tea and melatonin helped proteinuria. I cured the proteinuria which has never been seen by nephrologists without chemotherapy which is not a cure.
Because I realized that the unknown disease was not gone I went to my first symptom which was unexplained weight gain of 100 lbs in 8 months without any lifestyle change.
I did my research which led me to dercums disease which led me to lipedema which led me to mitochondrial disease. I
believe mitochondrial disease is the cause with lipedema and dercums being the symptoms which led to kidney disease.
I have an appointment September 17th in Tucson, Az. I’m leaving on the 15th and am coming back on the 18th. I am on social security and they have already told me they are taking it away which really screws with my medical.
The appointment with Dr. Karen Herbst costs $521 then I need funds to cover the rest of my costs. I made this appointment a year ago. This is how much in demand she is. I need a clear diagnosis to prove that I need continued disability. My anti rejection medication is $26 k per month! If I don’t have that medication I will lose the kidney my sister graciously donated to me. If I lose social security I lose Medicare.
Please help! Any amount adds up and this is so very important.
Mahalo, thank you, in advance, Tricia Mo’orea
