Nephrology/Mother CKD problem


Dear Sir,
History of my mother illness , Agr-67-

My mother is suffering with kidney problem from Nov 2012. She was first dragonets creatinine 9 due to her TLC level was 32000. She was admitted for 25 days. During that time 6 time dialysis has been done. Her last dialysis was on March 2013 and since then she is on medicine and able to reduce her creatinine value from 9 to 2.4.

Sometime this value increase due to increase in TLC value. Then she has to take antibiotic for one week and then again she control the creatinine value 2.4.

She is also having BP & diabetic from last 7-8 years and normally it is under control level. We do check daily and she is also taking ESLO 5 for BP control twice / day.


Last 2 months her creatinine value increasing slowly. Now her
Creatinine value is 3.2
Uric acid is 5.7,
Protein 6.7,
Phosphorus 6.7
Urea 88.10,
TLC is 10.90K

Doctor has started one medicine to control the Phosphorus is- Acutrol 400 mg -3/days for one week.

Her regular medicine are- Alfa d3, shelcol 500, nodosis ,nexiron, zintac, ( Rolien 2mg started last month for one month only),  Nucarnit F. )

Sir, I need your guidance, why suddenly creatinine increasing and what to do. Please guide me so that I can save her for dialysis problem

Thanks for asking my opinion on Allexperts.

From your description, it seems that your mother is suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). A gradual rise in S. Creatinine is the normal course of this disease process. Unfortunately, the damage that has been done cannot be undone. We can only try to prevent further progression of CKD.

Please follow her Nephrologist's advice.

P.S: By the way, dialysis is not a "problem" but a solution for millions of patients suffering from CKD
