I had a renal Transplant since 17 years, where my levels are 1. 3 for all these years. Now from dec 2017, I have got BK virus +ve with a viral load of 1840 copies/ml. Now Creatinine Levels is 4.4, biopsy results shows mild tubular atrophy & intestinal Fibrosis. Is this can be treated in allopathy.

Hello... BK virus can cause renal dysfunction in post transplant patients. However, from your biopsy finding it is not very clear whther those findings are due to the virus or the Immunosuppressant medications which you are taking. The best approach would be to taper your immunosuppressant medications and regularly monitor the bk virus level to see for response
