    The diseases listed under Nephritic and Nephrotic don't match up. (ie. Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis is nephritic in FA, nephrotic in RR)

    I hate the kidney.

    Which one is correct?

    They're both correct --- MPGN can have features of nephritic or nephrotic syndrome.

    The kidney is confusing.

    Nephrology is confusing - its so academic.

    They can explain everything so well, discuss the pathophysiology for hours, talk about minute differences in microscopic and EM appearance of each nephritic/nephrotic syndrome.

    In the end? Steroids, next patient...
