Hi, thanks for your query.
EPO is erythropoietin
used in cases of cases of chronic renal failure
,it is quite helpful in reducing the transfusion burden and it has to be taken on a regular basis. Doses for it is 50-100 units per kg.
In chronic renal failure few antihypertensives like ace inhibitors can not be used if the creatinine
is very high, generally calcium channel blockers like amlodipine
and diuretics are the first choice drugs.
Also your uncle needs aspirin , antidiabetic medications
and statins for the cardivascular risk reduction.
Calcium supplementation is rule in CRF patients and in some cases other drugs like pottasium binders can be given on case to case basis.
Hope it helps.
