Normally, patients do not require dialysis at a creatinine of 3.2. However, it depends upon a number of factors. Whether his creatinine has risen suddenly or it was rising previously also , will be the deciding factor. But if overall he is fine and his acid / potassium level are fine , then can wait...but it always depends on clinical picture

Hello Doctor, My mother has hypertension and around 62 years old. In 2014 she had itching on skin, as per doctors advice given blood samples. That time creatine level is 1.6 and started taking allopathy medicine from last 5 year. The tablets didn't helped to maintain the same creatine level. As per 11th september blood report creatine level is 10.9 and Doctor suggested to start dialysis immediately. But my Mother don't want to go for that. She is mentally disappointed by eating 10-15 tablets daily and loosing hope on that. Symptoms: No appetite for about 1 month Light swelling on face Sleeping disorder Cold and cough from September 1st Some one told her to try Ayurveda, so ordered ayurveda medicine and started taking these medicines along with allopathy medicines from 15th september. After 10 days creatine level is 9.9. Symptoms after Ayurveda for 10 days: She is hungry to eat after taking medicines Light Cold and cough now no other symptoms Now I am in worry as delaying dialysis may worst the scenario but she wanted to try ayurveda for some more time as she is feeling better after eating these medicines. Please suggest what's is the best way to make her happy. What are the symptoms indicate dialysis is must. Thanks in advance.

Hello... Unfortunately chronic kidney diseases are often irreversible and such high creatinine with symptoms,ideally she should be initiated on dialysis at least for now. Whether kidneys will recover , depends upon a number of factors, such as the rate of rise of creatinine and any precipitating cause which may have caused it to increase. I would advise you not to wait till her symptoms worsen. There is not much of a difference between 10.2 and 9.9

Cyst are common in that age group. If its a simple cyst , you need not worry. However certain type of cyst can be cancerous and require further evaluation for which it is important to know the complete character of the cyst For prostate , a simple medicine can be used to decrease its size and improve symptoms initially

Wepox contains erythropoietin, which is a standard medication to increase hemoglobin in dialysis patients. If you are responding to it , you can continue using it.

My mother is at ckd stage 4, doctor says she might come to dialysis soon, hence I am exploring options to get it done at home, I find HD very expensive and lots of efforts hence I choose PD. My question is - is it successful? Apart from baxter who provides the device for PD and whobis better. I am not sure but I think I ll go for CAPD i.e. 3 times a day.

Hello.... PD is an excellent option if performed with care......there are a few companies providing bags for capd , baxter is the largest of them though mitra and fresenius also provides.....i would advise you to be mentally prepared and get a CAPD catheter inserted at the right time for timely initiation of PD

Creatine level was much high 14.85 and by dialysis ot goes down to 10.56 then again doing dialysis it goes to 6.5 and now doctor prescribed another dialysis and also said that patient will stay for 2 weeks and will be continually processed through dialysis But they are charging much so I am wondering is he the patient is out of threat or not is he normally medicated under neurologist or we should stay with private hospital doctor advice which I believe are just charging much What you advise us?

Creatinine of 14 is very high and from what I u understand from your history, this is most likely a case of chronic kidney disease, which is unfortunately irreversible once it occurs. Dialysis or Transplant are the only modalities of treatment when your kidneys are functioning less than 15%. And all toxins of the body have to be flushed out at a regular i terval , thats why dialysis needs to be done atleast 2-3 times a week

Hello. Management of end stage renal disease requires renal replacement therapy i.e either dialysis or transplant. Unfortunately, ESRD is irreversible and cannot be cured. However, requirement of dialysis depends upon a number of factors, which can be best assessed by the nephrologist attending him.

Exforge is a good medicine and effective in treating blood pressure. If you are tolerating it well, then you can continue it without any issue. you need to monitor your potassium and creatinine level. It would be useful if you can share your records for a better understanding.
