Brief Answer: Dear XXXXX, Don't Worry Detailed Answer: You have a fairly good control on your sugars. Your kidney sizes are normal Occasional epithelial cells in the urine is a normal finding. However since you are a diabetic, do check your urine for albumin and blood for Urea and Creatinine at least once a year. Warm Regards

Hi, my dad, age, 65 had an infection removal from his abdomen on 29-Aug. He has been in the ICU since. He has WBC 0000, creatinine 2.5, is on ventilator and is being provided medicines to maintain his BP. I see you are in Mumbai. He is admitted in Kalyan. Is there any possibility that you come visit him? Alternatively I can send you his case summary. Any inputs will be helpful. Thanks.
