@miprincipe I have not been able to find any information on using stem cell transplant for chronic kidney failure, sorry to say.

Has your son been evaluated for a preemptive kidney transplant, perhaps from a family member? Have the doctors told you the reason for his Stage 3 kidney disease?

Hi Ginger, thanks for your reply.
My son was born with left multicystic kidney which is disappearing now. The right kidney got damaged by 3 UTI during his first 2 months after birth. Nobody in the family has kidney problems so we are assuming it is a congenital problem.
I don t really understand the concept of preemptice kidney transplant. Could you ease explain? Is it possible to do it during stage 3?
Thank you
