15. Dear Michelle,
Fanconi’s syndrome is an acquired or inherited disorder ( acquired due to toxic chemicals, vit D deficiency, contact with outdated antibiotics) It can not be cured but can be managed. In some cases a renal transplant may be needed. Hopefully she is with a nephrologist , they specialize in these type of diseases?
