My father (86) is undergoing treatment for kidney infection. On 21/6 /17 the blood profile was: Hb-12.0, RBC- 4.05, WBC-7900, Platelets-80000, ESR-95, Albumin-2.9, S creatinine-1.4. After 5 days of medication including infusion of 5 units of Albumin, the blood profile is like this Hb-11.4, RBC-3.50, Platelets-320000, WBC-12200, ESR-15, Albumin-2.8.I want to know how the condition is going on and why the level of albumin is not improving?
