Could Aspirin Poisoning As a Child Cause Esrd?
My husband a 36 y.o. white male was diagnosed with ESRD about 2 years ago. He has been advised lately that dialysis may be needed soon, while he waits on a kidney for transplant. I am writing you because, when he was a baby, about 6 mos old someone overdosed him with baby aspirin. He was rushed to the hospital but he had turned almost completely black. All those years went by, and when he became a teenager and went in for physicals the doctors would always say he had too much protein in his urine, but they never told him he had any kind of disease. I was wondering if maybe this poisioning caused his, what we know today's ESRD. If, this did cause the disease process in his body, is there any way we can reverse the disease and possibly restore his kidney's functionablity to normal range. Please advise me on this subject.
