Q: 

Is There Anything That Can Be Done To Treat A 15 Year Old Feline With renal failure?

A: Only your vet can help, and they may not be able to. renal failure causes death VERY quickly, particularly since cats hide illness and pain. I lost my best friend (16 yrs old) last year to this. My heart goes out to you. There''s little you could have done. Yes, but it depends if that is an acute or chronic renal failure. If that is an acute renal failure then it is curable and functioning of the kidneys will resume to normal that takes less than a month. If that is a chronic renal failure, it is non reversible which means patient needs to...

Q: 

Polio vaccine and renal failure

Q: 

acute Kidney failure - Need the truth

A: If the docs say that he has a chance of being able to go off dialysis, then he does have a chance. This is not something they will say to someone with diabetes and renal problems. Unless it is true. Whether he is able to get off dialysis will depend mostly on how severe his damage was before the bypass and how hard a hit his kidneys took because of the procedure. This is not something easily quantified and unfortunately he will just have to wait and see. But, as I said, the good news is that there is a distinct possiblity that he will get off dialysis. Hope this helps. Cora I have taken care of patients who did regain full function of their kidneys after going into acute kidney failure. ...


Q: 

Vancomycin and renal failure

A: DEAR INFACT the use of vancomycin and gentamicin for the treatment of MRSA IS TYPICAL. HOWEVER, these drugs can be nephrotoxic, meaning that they are toxic to the kidneys, if trough levels were not monitored carefully. having said so, your dad, could have been prone to this, due to his medical or other medical conditions (being old, hypertension, nephrotic problems, dehydration, infection), etc, however, the main important point when using gentamicin and vancomycin for effective therapy is to monitor the drug levels in the blood. if the trough levels are too high, there is a chance that they can damage the kidneys, either acutly or chronically, meaning that this acute renal failure may be reversible or irreversible...

Q: 

Doctor prescribed 4000mg metformin. Did this cause my dehydration/renal failure 3 months later?

A: The maximum recommended dose of Metformin is 2550 mg per day. Metformin is not metabolized by the liver, but rather excreted by the kidneys and is also eliminated in the feces. It''s usually not advisable to take more than 3 grams a day because of the risk of lactic acidosis and GI side effects. In an individual with normal kidney function and normal  filtration rate, it''s unlikely that 4 g of Metformin a day would cause acute renal failure (ARF) just by itself.  Doses of over 63 g  a day have been reported in the literature without lasting adverse effects. A larger dose of Metformin might cause GI upset, resulting in diarrhea and subsequent dehydration. You also mention that you are on...

Q: 

I am not on dialysis but am in renal failure. why should I take renvela? will the side effects be?

A: 18 Feb 2012 I''m not sure about the answer to both your questions ... and it is best to discuss it with your renal specialist. It is interesting though that you are being prescribed Renvela when you aren''t on dialysis. Renvela (sevelamer) is a phosphate binder. Sevelamer helps prevent hypocalcemia (low levels of calcium in the body) caused by elevated phosphorus. Renvela is used to reduce blood levels of phosphorus in people with chronic kidney disease who are on dialysis. http://www.drugs.com/renvela.html http://www.drugs.com/sfx/renvela-side-effects.html Votes:+0CommentVote upReportSearch for questionsStill looking for answers?
