Prognosis for total kidney and liver failure dyalisis not an option, what type of life expectancy?
Very poor: Unfortunately very poor however depends on what is meant my "total" failure. If complete kidney failure means not making any urine, then prognosis is typically days, up to 1-2 weeks w/o dialysis. If complete liver failure (your doctor would use prognostic tools such as meld and childs-pugh) and would consider lab values and signs/symptoms of liver failure and typically could be weeks to months. ...Read more
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
Liver and Kidney: Its a great question and complicated. The syndrome is called hepatorenal syndrome which is often because the amount of blood flow to the kidney is lessened which causes kidney injury- is a simple explanation. It also may be related to the reasons that liver failure ensued: for example hepatitis, drug overdose, toxins etc. Great question! ...Read more
They are not usually: 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.... ...Read more

I'm diebetic been a big drinker but I stop I have liver failure don't no the stage what 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. ...Read more

Not long: If these organs truly stopped working completely, survival would be short 1-2 weeks at most. ...Read more
Diet: That is a great question and depends on the degree of kidney disease. For example those with less than 30% function should restrict salt, fluid, potassium and phosphorous. Others have different requirements. I would visit the National Kidney Foundation website www. Kidney. Org. Its a great resource. ProRenal multivitamins are also great for patients with kidney disease. ...Read more
If someone has ascitites, kidney failure, end stage liver failure, how long would their life span be?

Don't give up, man!!: The questions I hear you asking is, "can I perhaps survive this after all? " you're read, correctly, that when liver failure becomes so severe that it causes the lungs or kidneys to fail, recovery is unlikely. If you are writing this from your home, and fairly comfortable, your kidneys have not failed. A sober, compliant diabetic's liver can heal and work well for him for decades. Be strong, man. ...Read more

My brother suffered liver failure (shutdown), kidney failure and is in a coma. He is diabetic too. What can be done to help him?
Wow, I'm sorry: Hi. Is he at UIHC? I hope so. Diabetes can cause kidney failure. Liver failure can cause kidney failure, but neither diabetes nor kidney failure per se cause liver failure. Do you know the cause of the liver failure? He is obviously very sick. Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. I'm so sorry. Best to him, you, and your family. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

What diseases or conditions can cause liver failure, high blood sugar, and sugar in the urine I know someone that is in the hospital on life support and nobody can figure out what is going on. She has kidney failing, and is getting no oxegen because her f
Diabetes can cause high blood sugar (glucose) and glucose in the urine. Also infections can raise the glucose level. Kidney failure can be a result of damage to the kidneys from poorly controlled or undiagnosed diabetes. She likely has a viral illness which exacerbated her diabetes and ultimately put her in kidney failure.
I hope she recovers.
Take care. ...Read more
Hi, this is probably me being over concerned but recently I've noticed 2 or 3 yellow patches of skin on my legs and its making me nervous. Liver failure but I don't drink excessively. Pancreatic cancer? Should I be worried?
Would you please restate your question?
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Cure varies: Beyond the obvious differences in organ and cell type as well as the various treatment approaches, the most important patient difference is really the chance at cure. Early stage prostate and renal cell (kidney) cancers can be very curable. Even really early stage pancreatic cancers can be quite deadly. ...Read more

Will marijuana use, using a vaporizer (no smoke or combustion) affect pancreas, liver or kidney. I under tobacco smoke does, even marijuana smoke. But vaporizing eliminates all toxins.?
I had a MRI results, severe stetosis liver, kidney cysts, and mild atrophy pancreas, have been given pain pills, but no plan for treatment, ?
Treat yourself: Kidney cysts usually need no treatment and there isn't one anyway. You have much more pancreas than you need. Fatty liver in a non-alcoholic and with other serious disease ruled out is often the organ's way of asking for more aerobic exercise. Make that your mainstay if self-care.. ...Read more
Upper right quadrant pain mostly, rarely upper left pain with normal liver, pancreas, ans kidney blood test. Normal Hida I have GERD and gilberts why?
Inherited disorder: Gilbert's disease is liver condition caused by an inherited gene mutation. It is common and generally does not require treatment. Therefore, your right upper quadrant pain is likely due to something else. Your normal tests represent good news (no serious problems these tests would find) and bad news (still don't have diagnosis for your pain). Keep your follow up appts; report new changes. ...Read more
