My daughter was diagnosed with bilateral osteodystrophy a few years back. The doctors said she was born that way. What i can't understand is why, when i look the disorder up it always talks about kidney failure etc... Her kidneys were fine until a few years back when she got a really bad kidney infection, since then she gets really painful kidneys and the doctor is thinking about putting her on antibiotics for a year. I just want a straight answer to why she has this disorder and if she has a higher chance of developing kidney failure?
