Hi,

I will try to work on your query now.

The description sounds normal for a 63 yrs old who is on medication. The lifestyle that you follow can bring in healthy outcome.

Scraping the tongue in the morning is a healthy habit and recommended by oral surgeons and physicians. Thin foam in the urine while you pass it is normal. If you are concerned about the foamy urine and recent onset then you better get 24 hour urine for protein and serum creatinine. Blood sugar is very good. The consistency and color of the stool are varied and does not specify any particular disease.

Let me try to understand if you have any specific queries to address.

GERD implies acid reflux into the mouth. The acid reacts with the alkaline fluid and cause caustic coating. It forms nidus to the growth of pathogens. However cleaning the tongue is always a good practice.

Hope this helps. If you do not have further enquiry you may close the discussion and rate it.

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.

Thanks, Kunal
