How long can a person live with liver and kidney failure and they are really bright yellow?

Failure of organs

The person you are describing is clearly very, very sick. He appears to have jaundice due to his bilirubin being elevated with is seen in liver disease caused by many different etiologies. If he has kidney failure, this may be due acute kidney failure caused by hypotension or a less common fatal condition called hepato-renal syndrome. Ask the patient's doctors for more information.

Why does liver and kidney failure lead to eyes turning yellow and skin jaundiced?

bilirubin

bilirubin will accumulate because the liver cannot metabolize it and the kidneys cannot excrete the bilirubin, hence the yellow jaundice

Had liver failure, Drs cannot pinpoint source; developed ascites. How can I improve my Liver and Kidney function naturally? No meds.

Ascites

You need to have a diagnostic and perhaps a therapeutic paracentesis to remove some ascetic fluid to be sent off to the lab to see what is in the fluid. You also need some blood work as well as a 24 hour urine for a creatinine clearance and protein to see what your kidney function is to see if you have proteinuria. You need to see both a GI doc and nephrologist to get aid your problems ASAP.

complete liver failure and Chronic kidney failure and Diabetes, one doctor said emergency dialysis, and another said not bad enough? how can this be?

Kidney function

The decision to initiate dialysis usually is based on several factors. First laboratory testing can be performed to estimate the glomerular filtration rate. In addition clinical signs are taken into account such as the presence of swelling, poor appetite, weight loss, and decreased level of functioning.

related but if you have loss of blood flow to all your organs I suppose you can get multi organ failure. You need to consult your doctor. These things do not get better without physician care. sorry....

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.

What happens if a person forgets to take his medication after a liver and kidney transplant?

Rejection risk

Unless the txps came from an identical twin or clone, they are genetically different from you. Your immune system is tricked into ignoring their presence by meds prescribed to prevent rejection. Not taking a med, lets the drug level drop, and the portion of the immune response that should be blocked, to begin functioning. Take the missed dose as soon as possible. If it is mult. doses, call your MD

Im diebetic been a big drinker but I stop i have liver failure don't no the stage wat are the symptoms if im starting kidney failure is there pain

hard to say

Kidney failure only occurs in the very last stages of very severe liver failure, and most people will have ascites (fluid accumulating in the abdominal cavity) and edema (swollen legs and elsewhere) before that occurs. Improvement of the liver disease, which should happen if you COMPLETELY stop drinking, should help considerably. There is no pain generally, lab tests are needed to follow it.
