Yes, with tight control of sugars you can delay the onset of renal problems. This requires a comprehensive planning and a holistic approach .Diet along with stress busters and medications can help you tackle the issue very effectively. I have seen and done this for many of my patients.

Can a person alive if he is suffering from kidney failure just asking no one has problem just for knowledge.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate user, it is not only possible for a person to survive with kidney failure but a lot of our patients enjoy life in spite of kidney failure. Renal replacement therapy which is commonly known as dialysis has made that possible. Going a step further when a person gets renal transplant or more commonly known as kidney transplant- then even dialysis is not required. This is the scenario where the kidneys have completely failed. But even during the stages of failure, kidney offers an ample lifetime of years altogether before it completely fails leading to dialysis as the only solution. Our body has got immense resilience and this is true for our kidneys too.

Dear this is a very common problem and many people face it, when you are passing urine at public toilet you are self conscious that restricts the immediate flow of urine, but when you are home, you are at ease, so the flow starts immediately. So do not worry, there is nothing wrong with you.

there is buildup of fat in the liver. While it’s normal to have some fat in your liver, more than 5 to 10 percent of your liver weight is fat in the case of fatty liver. The most common cause of fatty liver is alcoholism and heavy drinking . other cause for fatty liver are obesity hyperlipidemia, or high levels of fats in the blood diabetes genetic inheritance rapid weight loss side effect of certain medications, including aspirin, steroids, tamoxifen, and tetracycline There isn’t a medication or surgery to treat fatty liver. Follow following precautions for fatty liver. limiting or avoiding alcoholic beverages managing your cholesterol losing weight controlling your blood sugar

My father is 61 Years old and have a kidney problem, with a creatinine level of 7.5, potassium 7 and Urea 175. kidney size is Left 7.2 & 4.4 cm & Right 8.1 & 4.3 cm. I am pursuing allopathy for last two years and I have recently started ayurveda simultaneously. Whats the level of Creatinine for Dialysis and at what level of creatinine that I have forgot the dialysis. Can we use K'bind sachets with sorbiline for go down the potassium level or it can not be harmful or side effects for creatinine / kidney level increased. What is the status of functioning the kidney right now.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

First of all I suggest you to stop the Ayurveda medicines since, it consists traces of heavy metals that could cause kidney damage. Dialysis is dependant on the symptoms exhibited by the patient. If there is fluid acc umulation with high BP, dialysis needs to be done. This way excess potassium can also be leeched out. Then slowly the frequency of dialysis can be brought down and sometimes stopped with conservative treatment

Dear lybrate-user, kindly remember that if the dimension of any kidney stone is more than 3 mm then it is almost impossible to get rid of rid of it without surgery. You must have done usg of your whole abdomen 6 months ago. However I would recommend you to conduct another usg of your whole abdomen as early as possible. If the latest usg report reveals than your kidney stone has a dimension of less than 3 mm each then you can take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for one month. This medicine will expel the stone through urine if the stone has a dimension less than 3mm.

We have to treat the cause and if there is no urine output with puffiness of face and odema on legs than we might have to think of dialysis and if there is noticeable urine output than we might have to repeat the test after every three days.
