Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

I am very sorry you are facing kidney disease. You can read about kidney failure on our extensive page here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/kidney-failure - and yes, unfortunately it can progress quite rapidly with some people.

Are you currently undergoing dialysis? Have your health care providers explained your situation to you in detail? If not, it's a good idea to request a meeting - insist on it if you have to.

Here is another article on kidney failure and why it happens:

And here is a pretty in-depth article on the stages of kidney failure: http://www.davita.com/kidney-disease/overview/stages-of-kidney-disease

Did you start getting treatment as soon as you were diagnosed? If so, you need to ask your doctor about your fast progression and why it's happening.

I do hope other readers who are going through the same thing read your post and give you their input. In the meantime, I hope the above information is helpful to you.
