User :   Dear Sir,
My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.
She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-
Creatinine - 7.5
Hemoglobin - 8.1
Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL
Urea - 150
Sodium - 131
Potassium - 4.2
What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?
Please help.
