Thanks for the query

It is true that the serum creat is altered. But i guess ur doctor has forgotten that he is 72 and s creat of 1.8 is normal in them but the s urea is raised indicating acute renal failure which is reversible. If he is throwing more than 900ml f urine per day then he will be fine
After getting his s lytes checked he can be put on tab lasix 20 mg 1-1-0. But please meet a good nephrologist befoer this

have a healthy living
