Customer Question

I am a 28 year old who had a baby 5 months ago. During my pregnancy they discovered I have decreased kidney function and unknown proteinuria. I recently had blood work done and my IGM and complement 50 were both extremely elevated. My symptoms are nausea, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, and tingling in hands and feet. Any ideas of what it could be.

This suggests you have autoimmune disorder which is damaging your kidnesy and nerves as well.

You need to get a kidney biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

Please consult with a kidney specialist soon.
