Could many itching spots on the back (extant for several years) be caused by the patient having polycystic kidney disease (ckd stage 3a)?

Not likely,,,: Polycystic kidney disease is characterized by flank pain, hematuria (blood in urine), urinary tract infection in 30s and 40s, and hypertension.

Not likely: One cannot make another person's kidneys fail by which-craft. It is possible to give someone chemicals that would damage the kidneys, however, I doubt that was what happened. There are many causes of kidney failure but it would take examination, history, urine and other tests to determine the cause. I hope that you are under the care of a doctor for treatment. ...Read more

Can any kind of kidney disease or kidney failure cause a sore back?

About 20% of type 2 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years, but blood pressure control has seemed to be less effective in completely stopping progression in these patients. ...Read more

I'm adopted. Just discovered my Maternal Grandma died from acute kidney failure. My Mother is Stage 4 Kidney disease.  What should I watch out for?

Annual blood tests: Unfortunately chronic kidney diseases do not generally cause symptoms unless they are pretty advanced. Assessment of kidney function is achieved by routine blood and urine test (that's how they are generally and accidentally found). Ask your doctor if you have not done it already to check your urinalysis and basic metabolic panel and if they are normal, no worries! ...Read more

I have kidney failure, heart disease and diabieses and I have a drug habit. I have lost the use of my legs I need help?

First things first: When facing big challenges you can really only focus on one thing at a time, trying to take one step forward. It sounds like the major problem that is in your hands to change is the drug habit. Seeking help and getting clean may open other doors to important health care options. For example, you would only be a kidney transplant candidate after being clean for at least 6-12 months. Best of luck. ...Read more
