Question: Hi,
My father XXXX aged 69yrs is a high pressure and sugar patient.Last one and half year he is consistently suffering from gas which ends up in burp all the time. So we consulted general physician but the doctor referred to nephrologists (as problems found related potassium,sodium,creatinine etc).Last one year we are consulting nephrologists and psychiatrist (for anxiety) .But the situation remains the same and burp still continues which results in loss of appitite.
Please suggest

Brief Answer:
Delayed stomach emptying

Detailed Answer:

I have carefully read your query, gone through all your attached reports and understand your concern.

The unresolved symptoms of long term gastric complaints of bloating and loss of appetite ,in my opinion point towards "diabetic gastroparesis",which is an autonomic nervous system dysfunction syndrome.

This is quite common complication in long term diabetic patients.

Treatment includes tab metocloperamide twice a day.

Include high fiber in the diet.

Finish dinner by 8 pm.

maintain adequate hydration.

All this is enough..

i hope this info is useful to you.
consult an expert gastroenterologist for further assistance.
thank you

Brief Answer:
Keep in touch with nephrologist always

Detailed Answer:

You should keep consulting your family nephrologist,as his prescribed medications are absolutely necessary,to your father,since he is a known patient of CKD-chronic kidney disease.

Yes fruit juices should not be given to CKD patients,as they cause potassium overload.Orange juice can occasionaly be given

Give Oatmeal for breakfast
This should only be source for dietary fiber,rest of all fiber foods should be avoided.

You can give him ample amount of drinking water.

Key messages to your father:

1.avoid large meals,and eat atleast 5 small meals a day.

2.cut down high fat foods.

3.liquid foods in the form of "shakes" are very good.

4.start your day with pureed foods and liquids.

5.chew food well.

6.on days ,if symptoms are severe,rest the stomach,take only liquid foods.

7.sit up while eating and one hour after finishing.

8.keep blood sugar under strict control.consult your doc if its >200mg/dl.

9.check your weight twice a week.

10.if weight is decreasing ,increase consumption of liquid diets in the form of milk shakes,popsicles and gelatin.

if you loose weight weight more than 5kgs unintentionally,report to your doctor.

I hope this info is helpful to you.

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

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
