i was diagnosed with mpgn type 2 at 4 yrs old... it all started with a persistant cold. My mom always thought i was pale but, she had no idea until she found me lethargic on the floor.. my blood pressure was sky high. my urine was black. my 14 yr treatment consisted of aggressive doses of prednisone and blood pressure medication. i also give all the credit in the world to the doctors and staff at the Motts childrens hospital in ann arbor michigan.
