Moderate interstitial fibrosis and tubular artrophy with 70% global sclerosis (19 out of 27 glomeruli) and 30% segmental sclerosis (8 out of 27 glomeruli)

Expert Answer
The reason why you caught kidney disease is because of your immunity has lower down already and the immune complex deposited in your kidneys and the immune complex stored there for a long time caused your kidney damage.

Your original kidney disease is Nephritic Syndrome.
