Creatinine level risen. Kidney transplanted. Why frequent stools? Zyrop helpful?

Hi Doctor, My Brother got his kidney transplanted in 2006. From last few months his creatinine level has gone up to 3.2. His 3 days back hemoglobin report shows 6.6. Doctor suggested 2 units of blood transfusion one of which is already done yesterday night. Second will start tomorrow morning. He is having frequent loose motion today. He was having loose motion 2 weeks back also but was in control till yesterday night. Is current loose motion is due to: * Yesterday s blood transfusion? * His increased creatinine level? * Or anything else? Please suggest medicine for same. Please note that his hemeoglobin is under 8 from last 6 months and he is taking zyrop (EPO 2000) injection weekly once .

Thanks for the query.
Common causes of loose motions in a patient who has received a kidney transplant are infections or the side effects of the anti rejection pills.
A low hemoglobin or an elevated creatinine do not cause diarrhoea.
The appropriate medication can be prescribed once the cause is determined by blood and stool tests.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
