I have polycystic liver and kidney disease. Im51 an have bruses on my arms,thighs, an abdomen. Why?

Doctor will do tests

Abnormal_liver_tests
Bruises mean blood leaked out of vessels in the skin. The liver makes important blood-clotting factors, so liver disease can increase bleeding & bruising. Healthy kidneys are important in vitamin D and calcium metabolism, so kidneys play a role in blood clotting. A doctor must evaluate & do tests, because other serious problems cause bruising, such as low platelets, leukemias, drug effects, etc...

Dr. Luis Bendezu answered:

Is taking Xanax bad for your kidneys or liver? Example if you have kidney disease or liver disease? Thank you Dr!

No but..

Kidney_disease
the drug is broken down by the liver and eliminated by the kidneys. If you have severe liver disease or kidney disease the dose may need to be adjusted appropriately. The drug by itself will not hurt your kidneys or liver if taken as prescribed.

Can you have surgery with kidney disease? My father needs a hip replacement, but had liver disease.

Yes

Hip_replacement
For any surgery you must weigh the risks versus benefits of the procedure involved. Your father's primary care doctor will do a thorough evaluation preoperatively to see if he is medically fit to undergo surgery.

Why is there such a shortage of liver and kidney transplants?

Need>>supply

Cirrhosis_(liver)
There are more people with the diseases that need organs than there are available organs. It is that simple. There are fewer "healthy" people dying now with working organs. Not every person or family is willing to donate organs after death either.

Dr. Randy S. Baker answered:

What foods or vitamins are good for your liver and kidney?

Healthy diet, many

Healthy_living
The best foods for your liver & kidneys are organic fruits & vegetables. Avoid fried foods, genetically modified foods & limit sugars & starches. Also avoid too much protein. All vitamins are necessary, esp. for your liver- it's best to get from diet but a quality multivitamin & 5-8000 iu of D3 is reasonable. Acetaminophen causes liver damage- limit use & take NAC with it.See http://bit.ly/19XAX7E

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Does lemon water help liver and kidney function?

Of course not

Water-met-limoen
It tastes good, though. There are several sites promoting it as a 'miracle food' that are so silly that I think they must have been written as parodies or practical jokes. ('If we don't break down our water molecules to smaller sizes...') If you actually have some concerns about your liver and/or kidneys (perhaps some abnormal labs), your best guide is your physician.

How long can a person live with liver and kidney failure?

Depends.

Esrd
Depends on the severity and reversibility of these. This is a dangerous combination of organs to be failing and should be followed closely by doctors.
