      1. Yes, I took her to the nephrologist here in Wisconsin the top of the line doc. He finally figured it out after having her 3 24 hours urine collection she had excessive calsium.
        They operate and got rid of her 2 parathyroid gland. But the damage has already been done and she has CKD 3.
