I was told I had brights disease when I was six years old. I have asked over the years and have been told numerous answers. From what I have gathered brights disease is a kidney disorder. It has something to do with the shape of the kidneys, and possibly cysts forming on the kidneys. I contacted the Doctor that originally diagnosed the disease for me, and he stated that in 1966 they hospitalized children they believed to be abused or neglected and gave them this type of diagnosis in order to keep them in the hospital setting and observe the parents.

Today I am forty three years old and for the first time since 1967 I am having kidney problems. I just made an appointment with a urologist to see exactly what is going on. I will keep you up to date.
