Brief Answer:
yes he will survive.

Detailed Answer:

Hi XXXXXXX

Have gone through the attachment. Your patient is suffering from renal failure,

Diet- less salt, No juices or fruits, don't take green leafy vegetables. No non-veg. rest he can take all veg foods. He can take dal and paneer also in moderation.

Problem faced- He has kidney failure- upto certain stage medicines can help. But it can not recover he has to live with it. Once he has crossed the stage of medicines he has to go for either dialysis or transplant. ( treating doctor will take a call )

Implications of dialysis- If dialysis is needed and you not do dialysis- all his organs will slowly stop working and his daily activities will also become daily more difficult to perform. If he starts Dialysis when told to do so by the doctor then his organs and activity of daily living will improve.

Fatality- NOT doing dialysis if needed is fatal to the body.

He will survive if he starts dialysis timely. also better is if he can go for transplant- survival rates are better with transplant as compared to dialysis . and survival rates on dialysis are better than no treatment.

Hi Dr XXXXXXX

Thank you for the reply. As a follow-up question regarding his diet - right now he is eating apple, plums, guava, cucumber, a little popcorn with less salt made in less Rice XXXXXXX oil, roti, curry without tomatoes and potatoes etc. Basically where can I get a reference list of food items, oil and other things which he can eat and which he cannot eat. We want to be careful about what we are giving him.

Also one more thing to note is that he has BP and slight thyroid problem for which he takes tablets.

Thanks,
xxxxxxxx

Brief Answer:
meet dietitian.

Detailed Answer:

You have to meet a dietitian to get a diet chart or you can use "Ask a Dietitian" option on your dashboard.

Bp should be kept around 130/80 with help of medicines. similarly thyroid TSH should be kept between 1 and 5.
