Renal Failure And Eating Cornmeal Porridge
What can be done for my 88 year old grandmother who has stopped eating and has renal failure and congentital heart defect?
What can be done: It sounds like your grandmother has made the decision for you. She has had a long life and she has some serious health issues. The best thing I can tell you is to have a talk with your grandmother and ask her what she wants to do. It may be that she has had enough of treatments and hospitals, so you can enroll her in hospice, spend some time with her, allow her to be with her family.
A condition in which your kidneys suddenly stop working normally.

ESRD options: Patients with esrd have 4 options. One is hemodialysis (h), either at a dialysis center, doing regular or nocturnal h, or doing h at home. The second is, peritoneal dialysis. Esrd patients can receive a transplant for either a living related or a cadaveric donor. The 4th option is one that very few patients consider, and that is not starting dialysis at all leading to a fatal outcome.
Weeks to many years: Complex question. Relates to what is causing it, at what stage it is diagnosed, the quality and consistency of care one receives (as with any chronic illness), the quality of the renal program if one needs dialysis, or renal transplant, whether complications from all the medications needed occur, whether transplant is rejected, whether donor kidney available when needed etc etc etc.See 1 more doctor answer
Renal failure signs: Signs of renal failure (rf) are high potassium, bun, phosphate intact parathyroid hormone and creatinine levels.

Diet in CRF: Great question. There are many and I would ask that you go to either http://www. Davita. Com/kidney-disease/diet-and-nutrition/lifestyle/top-15-healthy-foods-for-people-with-kidney-disease/e/5347 or https://www. Kidney. Org/nutrition. I would recommend you talk to your doctor about all of this. There are foods that you should avoid and these resources will tell you what they are.
Renal failure: You die is the most severe one.
Not used: Nephrologist don't use these term because they confuse patients. Kidney disease is classified based on stages from 1 to 6.
Oh dear.....: Renal failure is a complicated topic, as the kidneys impact so many aspects of our body's health. I don't know from your question if you are asking about someone else - like maybe a parent, or if you are asking about yourself. Also, is the individual on dialysis? Heart failure is extremely common in people with kidney shutdown. Please talk to the nephrologist involved to get specific answers.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies widely.: It strongly depends on the cause of renal failure in your family. Genetic disorders such as polycystic kidney, vhl, iga, apol1 & tuberous sclerosis can cause problems at a young age and should be evaluated and followed early. Failure caused by high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, & diabetes occurs in middle age & beyond, requiring diet, exercise & BP control. Its good to be proactive.See 1 more doctor answer
