IgA nephropathy usually progresses slowly over many years, but the course of the disease in each person is uncertain. Some people leak blood in their urine without developing problems, some eventually achieve complete remission, and others develop end-stage kidney failure.
Certain medications can slow its course. Keeping your blood pressure under control and reducing your cholesterol levels also slow disease progression)

The beginning and the ending of the book was wonderful. As the story is about the true life of the author, few chapters in the middle might not be captivating for the readers. And a very few grammatical errors.
A simple writing style which everyone can understand. A smoothly flowing plot and emotions were very well brought out. Though a lot of characters were involved, it was perfectly written without creating any confusions to the readers. The journey to different places are clearly explained.
The story could have been written in a bit more intereting manner.
A very good and inspiring book to read. A must read book for all those people who are suffering from severe ailments. This is a book which would give you confidence, a new hope and a different view on life.
Wonderful story of a normal girl, who’s one among us. (4/5)
