hai,
loss of corticomedullary differentiation indicates renal insufficiency because kidney failure.it means poor function of kidney due to improper blood flow.

left kidney hydronephrosis indicates collection of fluid around the left kidney.
both the condition will be there in renal failure.

I am a 39 yr old mother of 4..Over the past 4 years I have had 3 x laparoscopic surgeries to remove multiple haemorrhagic cysts from my left ovary. Over the past few weeks I started getting the same pain back again so saw my doctor who sent me for an ultrasound. It states : my right ovary measures 2.4 ml and appears grossly normal. Left ovary measures 21.4 ml and demonstrates a complex appearing cyst with peripheral vascularity on colour Doppler measuring 2.9 x 2.2 x 2.7 cm. Comment : Complex left ovarian cyst with peripheral vascilarity? Haemorrahagic cyst. Please help me to understand what all that means. Thanks.

Hello, I will be going to a doctor soon but I just wanted to know what the causes for a urethral fistula are and what the procedure that deals with it is. Also, if I do not have an exact date for when I first noticed the fistula since it isn t recent, will that create problems for the doctors? What can I do to help the situation for the mean time other than wait for my appointment day?

Hello Doctor,
I am here to get a second opinion about my Dad's renal failure.
Name : Jai Bhagwan Sharma
Age : 61
Sex : Male
Height : 5 Feet 5 Inch
Weight : 60 KG
My dad was diabetic from last 5 year and he was taking DAONIL tablet (He didn't visit doctor after getting his prescription), one day we found that he is suddenly started behaving weird and irrelevant talk we took him to emergency and found that his blood sugar dropped to 36 later on he was fine with some medication.
But two days later (He was under observation at Yashoda Hospital Ghaziabad) suddenly his blood pressure shooted up to 15/280 level and his heart failed doctors immediately took him to Ventilator. He was on Ventilator for 3 days and that is when doctor's found that his Kidney is failing (his Creatinine reached 7 and Blood Urea 12) he went through two Dialysis and after that he was on strict diet and medication. For last one year creatinine was floating around 4-6 and Urea 80-120 but suddenly a month before it started getting worce and creatinine reached 9.2 now doctor asked him to get Dialysis done twice a week and said that Kidney is now not functioning. I would want to check if we there is any remote possibility of Kidney to react to some kind of steroids? As I believe and read in few cases it was successful.
Also wanted to know if peritoneal dialysis is better option over hemodialysis

Thanks for replying

They are now wanting him to go to a long term acute center, I m guessing because his heart rate registers low in the upper 40 s to mid 50 s. how long can I expect him to last on dialysis
