Chastity is a 15 year old female who has been in our LLLR program since July 2010. Her BMI was significantly elevated at 44.44 in July 2010 and this lead to her developing a kidney dysfunction. The doctors at LLLR explained to her the need to change her lifestyle and become physically active if she did not want to go on dialysis. She had a kidney biopsy in November, 2010 when she was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis Stage I. Chastity and her mother decided to take this advice seriously. She has been following the medical and dietary advice such as, cutting down her juice intake, increasing fiber intake and increasing her intake of vegetables and fruits. She has also increased her physical activity which helps her in being an active member of girl scouts.
