Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have seen all attached reports. She is suffering from Chronic Renal failure and I am sure she must be taking treatment for it. She has high creatinine, Potassium and Phosphorus level which is consistent with renal failure.

She should take care of following:
1) Take care of her diet - Low protein, low potassium, salt restriction and total fluid intake should be Urine output plus 500cc.
2) Please maintain near normal Blood pressure by drugs.
3) Avoid any infection and if it occurs treat it promptly.
4) Maintain good hemoglobin take your drugs regularly.

Please let me know line of treatment she is taking.

In such cases if renal function deteriorates she has to prepare herself for hemodialysis. An 'AV fistula' may be formed if not already done.

The only other option is Kidney Transplant for which you should discuss with your treating Nephrologist.

Hope this is helpful for you, I will be available for any further query, please feel free to ask.

Regards
Dr.Akhilesh Dubey M.D.

I am a renal transplant patient. Surgery done 6 months back. After transplatation I used to take immuno suppresents like Pangraf, Cellcept and Prednisolon. Immediate after surgery my S.Creatin levels were 1.4, 1.3, 1.2 then 1.5 etc..After one month of when I checked my Tac level it was very high ie, 14.4. Then Pangraf dosage reduced for next one month.But there was no significant reduction in Creatin and then checked Tac level it shows 14.1. At that time S.Creatin was 1.7.Then stopped Pangraf and started Certican .25. A sudden increase in S.creatin and it became 2.6. My Biopsy shows ATN+ and other readings were quite normal. My Potassium and RBS are quite normal. Then started Neoral 50mg and tried 25mg, but again S.creatin level gets increased and now it is 3.6. My Doppler test parameters are normal. What would be the remedy on this problem??How it is happened like this? My donor is my brother. I am 42 Years old.

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

Potassium - 4.2



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

I am a post kidney transplant patient, had a pedia en block in 6/2008 at UCSF. I haven't had my labs drawn for 8 months. I went yesterday since I've been feeling really exhausted, weak, confused and short of breath. My hemaglobin is 8 and hematocrit 24, just got the lab results. Should I be concerned and call my Nephrologist?
