My brother was hospitilized with high blood pressure. One month later he's been put on hemodialysis 3 days a week. His preliminary diagnosis after a kidney biopsy is IgA nephropathy (Berger's disease.) He is 44 years old. We are still waiting for a definitive diagnoses. He is on antihypertensives and prednisone. His heart rate seems to be really high.
