Dear sir/madam, I want a much needed suggestion from your organisation or any of your doctor through you. My father, had undergone a kidney transplantation 3 months ago in hospital, new delhi .my mother was the donor. He was on dialysis for 2 years and had diabetes from last 20 yrs. After the transplant the situation become worse and now his creatinine level and potassium is increasing continuously. He had been admitted several times since the transplant but after discharge the situation becomes same after some days. We have nothing left now and not able to admit him again now but still trying to gather the money .we are financially suppressed and do not know what to do my mom and me thought that father will be healthy after the transplant but. The medicines he is currently taking are tacrolimus, cellcept ,nodosis ,emmerset, ulgel and some other medicines with regular insulin. Creatinine and potassium is increasing continuously and pus cells are observed in the report. He is not able to digest anything and vomits as soon as he takes food moreover on and off fever is observed and sometimes traces of blood and bulgam are observed in the vomit. He is very weak and blood is also less in his body. I can't see my father is these conditions. I beg for your help in any way. Please I will be forever thankful to you
CKD depicts a slow and progressive loss of kidney function over a period of several years. It often goes undetected and undiagnosed until the disease is well advanced. Eventually, the patient has permanent kidney failure.
I am suffering from a very high creatinine level, shall I eat the Dr. prescribed medicines or try homeopathy, which will give me better results?
A kidney transplant is a procedure that employs an operation to transplant properly functioning kidney in the body. The main job of the kidneys is to remove the excess waste from a person’s body with the help of a filtration process. When the kidneys stop filtering the toxins properly, they become diseased as harmful waste products and toxins begin to accumulate in the body. Following this, the patient has to go through treatment measures like dialysis or kidney transplant.
Read on to know the five things you should keep in mind about a kidney transplant.
- Treatment: Transplant is one of the best ways to treat chronic kidney disease stage-V, until unless it is contraindicated. Life becomes near normal after transplant, though there is a possibility of rejection of transplant kidney. Patient has to take immunosuppressive medication life long.
- Medication: Medications are mainly for:
- Family Only: The donors are from family or emotionally related or cadavers (after brain death). HLA-matched donors are better because of less chances of rejections and first reduction of immunosuppressive.
- Doing Your Part: Once transplant is done - patient becomes normal and he/she lives a normal life. However, they have to take regular medications and to protect themselves from various infection.
- End Stage Renal Diseases: These diseases includes diabetes mellitus, HTN, polycystic kidney disease, chronic glomerulonephritis or interstitial nephritis etc.
Consult a Nephrologist before going for renal transplant for detailed check up or line of action.
