If someone in their 70's has kidney failure, double pneumonia and liver and heart trouble as well as colitis and dehydration, recovery possible?

Many things involved: It sounds like you are dealing with a complicated situation. It is possible to recover from complicated medical problems, but much depends on the individual's baseline health. Is this an acute illness, or has the person been chronically ill for a long time? "simple" interventions like rehydrating a patient, adjusting their electrolyte balance, and giving antibiotics may work wonders. Good luck.

I: I am so sorry that your daughter is so ill and I wish the best for her. Viruses and infections can come on very rapidly in children, as with your daughter. If your other children begin having fever, cough, or other symptoms then their pediatrician should see them immediately. It is however very rare for children to get as sick as your daughter from RSV though it definitely does happen. With most children it is a minor illness.

Can e.Coli caused kidney failure if untreated?

Can e.Coli caused kidney failure if untreated?

E. coli: The so-called enterohemorrhagic e. Coli is linked to a particular form of kidney disease called hemolytic uremic syndrome. Type o157 is the most common but other o types can also cause this. Anti microbial agents not only do not prevent the kidney complication but clearly are linked to a higher risk of it. However, e.Coli sepsis of other types can cause kidney failure that may be prevented by rx.

Can malaria cause kidney failure?

Can malaria cause kidney failure?

Yes: The malaria parasite lives and divides in the red blood cells. In some forms of malaria, there are so many parasites that the red cells start getting trapped in the small blood vessels, blocking blood flow. In addition there can be massive destruction of red cells in the blood vessels, fragments of which block smaller blood vessels. This can cause kidney failure.
