Thanks for your query.

I do consider the same that the Beta blockers could be the culprit in causing the aggravation of the renal illness and the higher levels of Potassium.

I would like to know the range of your previous Creatinine levels, based on which I could comment on the efficacy of the hemodialysis at home.Also do provide the previous potassium levels.Do send reports of tests on renal functioning and biopsy studies ( if done ) to YYYY@YYYY .
