Dear sir i can understand your concern
i am very sorry about the condition of your father.
Diabetes nephropathy is a late complication in diabetes, As you mentioned that creatine and urea values are high which s showing that kidney is not working properly.
Dialysis is the best option until he find a better match for transplantation.
Hope I was able to help you.
If you have any further question fell free to write me back.I will be happy to help.
Take care.
Best Regards.
