Your father seems ro have developed diabetic Nephropathy.
Management includes
Meticulous control of blood sugar and hypertension
Avoid all nephrotoxic drugs and pain killers
Low protein and potassium diet to be given( reduce milk,meat,Dals,fruits and coconut water)
Patients with microalbuminaria are put on ARB's or ACE inhibitors even if BP is within normal limits
Keep repeating hemodialysis
If END STAGE RENAL FAILURE has occured,then only renal transplant is the answer.
All diabetic Nephropathy patients should be jointly managed by diabetologist and nephrologist.
