Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more

Recovery?: You best resource for the answer to your question is the nephrologist (n) taking care of you. The questions to ask your n are: do you have acute renal failure? Does your n expect your kidney function to return? If you had acute renal failure, due to drugs that affected the kidney or due to low bp, recovery may be possible. Your n can and should give more information about your prognosis. Good luck. ...Read more

My mother has an impaired kidney with creatinine between 4-5. Has developed severe body itching recently. Any help for itching? Not on dialysis yet

Itching and dialysis: Your mother needs to be seen by a nephrologist to see if she needs to be on dialysis. Itching is one of the indications to start dialysis. I would imagine that your mother is near 60. Have her doctor collect a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance (cc). If the result is < 10 ml/min, she will need to start dialysis and that would stop her itching. Check her serum phosphorus and pth. Good luck. ...Read more
