Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

Here are my interpretations and suggestions

1.The reason for not undergoing angiogram could also be because of increased creatinine. Which could be due to diabetes.
2. Epo 4000 can be given for increasing the hemoglobin but it should not be given without knowing the transferrin saturation and iron stores. It will work efficiently only if the body iron stores are normal. Please get transferrin saturation and iron stores done before giving Epo. I also recommend work up for anemia as there is no apparent reason for low hemoglobin.
3. The best option would be to continue the current medication, he is on the correct medications. I also recommend you to get urine routine done, there might be mild proteinuria ( loss of protein in urine) which needs to be controlled.
4. The most important thing is to avoid high protein diet like red meat and follow a low salt diet.
5. restrict fruits to just once or twice a week, avoid tender coconut water.
6. If you have an ECHO scan, please attach it so that I can get back to you on fluid restriction

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
