If someone has acute renal failure what factors would cause it to progress to chronic renal failure?
My mom has had an ulcer on her leg for sometime. It got infected right before her vacation and 3 days later she came back home disoriented, with fever and acute renal failure (kidney failure). This was nearly a month ago. (Sept. 20th) What would cause her to progress to chronic renal failure and have to be on dialysis for the rest of her life????
Renal failure can occur for many different reasons. The chance of reversal depends on the cause. Acute renal failure can occur from decreased blood flow to the kidney, structural damage to the kidney or obstruction of urine flow from the kidney. These conditions can be caused by various things such as dehydration, congestive heart disease, infection and medications. Sometimes treating the underlying problem or removing the offending agent is enough to improve kidney function. However, sometimes the damage to the kidney is too severe to be reversed resulting in chronic renal failure. (+ info

what is the best way to detox my dog who has renal failure?
My 13 year old girl has been diagnosed with renal problems. They said to eliminate protein from her diet, She lost weight and became weak. We are feeding her a home cooked diet now but I want to know what the best way to detoxify her blood is. Thanks
Well, it's not looking good. However, them telling you to "eliminate" protein was bad advice. You need to greatly decrease it as it's hard on the kidneys.
The ONE maybe solution I can offer you is in the form of a human supplement that is safe for animals, however, I give you this advice with the stipulation that you much call the company and ask them about their track record with giving this to dogs and how much to give based upon body weight. Don't willy nilly just give it to him.
It's called "Kidney Complex" and it's made with medicinal mushrooms and has been shown to be effective in human renal failure:
You can call the manufacturer directly, that is what I recommend:
If you're in Canada, you'll have to go through www.phpure.com. Good luck and hope it can help. (+ info

Anemia and hypertension usually go along with renal insufficiency. If you are having antihypertensive medication it should be one of the ones that a) protect the kidney and b) prevent/reverse cardiac remodelling. The ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II antagonists have shown these effects where other antihypertensive drugs have not.

How can I start a cancer support group for renal cell carcinoma?
Where could we meet?
How large of a space would I need?
How can I get speakers?
Do you or someone in your family have renal cell carcinoma?
You can contact your city's local hospitals to see if a support group for that type of cancer already exists. If the group does not exist, you can ask to speak with the hospital's community relations director or volunteer director to talk about your interest in starting a support group. But there are guidelines and funding involved b/c you will have to find a room in a hospital to use and may have to pay the hospital to use it, unless you are told otherwise. And your hospitals may have cancer ward or unit that you can check out in person too, to see if there are support groups there and speak with the people or organizations who lead those support groups, to get an idea how you would create one. You would also have to advertise for volunteers to lead the support groups on specific nights, etc.,.
Your best bet is to find an existing cancer support group and either do an informational interview with the person in charge, or do research online to start with. (+ info

Is pain felt in kidneys when renal insufficiency develops?
I kinda have been feeling very mild pain in my kidney areas (on both sides of my spine at the lower back level) for the last several moths. I researched renal diseases on the internet, and kidney pain is not really mentioned as a symptom. Can something be wrong with my kidneys? The pain is very mild and it doesn't interfere with my daily activities; I forget about it most of the time. I know you will tell me go see a doctor, but I would appreciate if medical professionals or people with kidney disease could give me some insight here.
I don't have blood in my urine.
The pain that you refer is more likely due to low back pain. Usually renal insufficiency is a severe disease that can be easily rule out with some basic blood test done by your physician.
The only disease related to the kidneys that your sort of pain might reflect could be a urinary infection, that gives other symptoms as well.
In case that you are thinking about an specifically disease that you observed within your family, then just go to your doctor and explain your doubts. A few urinary and blood test are going to ease your mind faster than trying to fish information on Internet.
From the information you give, the frequency that happens and the long term mild pain, it is more reasonable to think in low back pain, due mostly to muscular causes, bad position or simply stress.
The best you can do is to rule out a severe disease if you are already doubting, at least is what I would do if I were in your place. (+ info
What is the average cost of renal transplantation surgery in Bombay,Delhi and Chenni?.?
What is the average cost of renal transplantation surgery in Bombay,Delhi and Chenni?.
What is the cost of medicines per month for transplant patients?
Have you considered medical treatment and surgical help for this in India? My cousin got her surgery from a company called Forerunners Healthcare in India.
She just paid 25% of the amount she was quoted in USA.
Forerunners Healthcare is very famous in India. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and magazines. I have read a lot of their patient stories also. They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low cost, as all types of medical treatment and surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that your medical treatment and surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.
Hope this helps.
