Once a 91 year old woman stops producing urin, who has CKD, and cannot be treated with dialysis, does she have long to live? she also has a severe heart condition, osteoporosis,hypertension, CKD, fluid retension, and has suddendly stopped producing urin, We took her to the hospital 3 days ago, she was nausious, and was not eating all day. She was already on a low protine fluid restricted diet by her doctors order. She has breathing problems too. Am I losing her?

Hi,

End stage renal patient had to be supported by dialysis or she will not survive longer. Consult your nephrologist and he will explain further. Wishing you good health.

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