Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Dialysis do the work that kidney can't do anymore because of their illness probably. I don't know what have cause the kidney to fail but probably not diabetes from what you are writing. If your father have a normal blood pressure,not a low one ,the dialysis can help him to get free from body toxins and extensive liquid,this is good for the heart too.That helps the heart work.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

My mother - age 76 yrs - dialysis patient from past 4 years. She had recently the below problem- Duringn haemodialysis diagonoed as atrial fibrillation . Patient reverted to sinus rhythm on its own. Both 0 and 06 hrs Trop1 elevated. So diagnosited as Non ST Elevation Mycardial Infarction. Question from my side is - Considering her age of 76 yrs ; undergoing dialysis from past 4 yrs ; I don t know should we undergo angio gram and subsequently angioplasty if required. Need your suggestion.. I don t know if we have to subject her to all this pain. Also, will this kind of heart problem gets repeated. If we don t undergo angiogram itself, what is the problem/risk. Need advice

Hi. My Husband is not only a dialysis patient (peritoneal) but heart patient. Past history: 3 heart attacks, 3 cardiac arrests (2 were on the way to hospital after having the first). How safe are the DAVITA recipes with sodium? I ve noticed what works for dialysis patients may not be good for heart patient. Also, when I see the fat content in the recipes, it doesn t indicate how the total fat is figured into saturated, trans. Thank you.
