What condition could result in kidney problems with yellow eyes?

What condition could result in kidney problems with yellow eyes?

Many, such as TTP.: There are many causes for both kidney problems and for jaundice, which appears as yellowing of the eyes. One more rare entity that can cause both is a condition called thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, or ttp. Here, jaundice is caused by the destruction of red blood cells, and often occurs with kidney dysfunction. A more severe form is called hemolytic-uremic syndrome.

Kidney failure may affect blood pressure, which may have an affect on the eyes.

My father has diabetes mellitus 2 and kidney failure. Recently he has been suffering of blindness, but just for some seconds his eyes stop to see.?

Needs eye exam: If your father has diabetes and kidney failure, it is very likely he has diabetic retinopathy as well. This is diagnosed with a dilated eye exam. Blindness or blurry vision that lasts several seconds at a time could also represent ischemia or lack of blood blow to the eye or brain. This needs to be evaluated by his primary physician and an ophthalmologist.

I didn't drink water for two days. Could I be severe dehydrated? Could I get kidney failure? My urine wasn't real dark just yellow.

I didn't drink water for two days. Could I be severe dehydrated? Could I get kidney failure? My urine wasn't real dark just yellow.

Yes: Yes you can get kidney failure from not drinking for a longtime. But right now I think you are just dehydrated. There is no way for me to ask you why you have not had water in 2 days but if you have decided not to, it is not a good idea and I hope you are taking other liquids. If you are not, and you just don, t feel like, get evaluated. Keep hydrated.

Is it normal for my 1 mos old to have yellow eyes, what should I do?

Is it normal for my 1 mos old to have yellow eyes, what should I do?

Yes: It's not uncommon for some jaundice (bilirubin levels of 5 to 10 range) to continue for 4 to 6 weeks (very rarely up to 12 weeks), in a breast fed infant. In such a situation, I still recommend getting a total and direct bilirubin (a blood test for jaundice) to make sure, no other condition with high direct bilirubin exist. If so, the infant's stools can be clay colored (not brown or yellow).

Is there a natural therapy to get rid of yellow eyes in a baby?

Is there a natural therapy to get rid of yellow eyes in a baby?

No: If a baby naturally has a yellowish tint to the whites of their eyes, there is really no natural treatment. However, if it is a newborn with jaundice, the yellow will lessen when the jaundice goes away. If it is an older infant who is feeding baby food and receiving a lot of carrots or other orange/yellow vegetables in the diet, reducing these can reduce the degree of yellow tint to the eyes.
