Hello Sir, my uncle age 57 (from very week financial position) was recently having some trouble in breathing, after some tests dr. told us that as he is having high blood pressure that was 180/110, and root cause is some problem in the kidney functioning, his blood urea is 80 and Cretan level is 5.5, we have not started with any medicine til yet, as reports came yesterday only, I want to know what are the chances for him, can he be recovered with medicines or problem has reached to advanced stage. plz plz reply me as soon as possible. I want to know clearly what is his actual position right now and how we can cure him or which way to proceed for better treatment

Nephrologist 's  Response
the reports do indicate that your uncle is having renal failure. the high BP & breathlessness are due to it.
first you need to consult your Doctor and do few investigations like urine routine, sonography of abdomen,blood gas analysis.
whether the renal failure is chronic or acute-reversible has to be looked upon.
He should be treated with antihypertensives, diuretics to begin with.
If breathlessness , urine output does not improve he may require dialysis.
Actual prognosis depends on the type of kidney disease.
Take care
