Kidney Failure: 42 Years Old, Anemia, High Albumin and Potassium Level

Posted: by wuqing      Time: 2013-03-02 17:06


Details: As discussed with you, my brother-in-law is only 42 years, a hard core vegetarian, non smoker, non drinker. Is there any way this can be medically treated, then going through dialysis or kidney transplant. I attach his test report for you, please give me a reply. Thanks.

Expert Answer

According to your brother's medical test report I would like to share with you several points .

1. He is a Kidney Failure patient with anemia, so it is easy for him to feel tired because his Hemoglobin level is lower than normal range, generally it is caused by the damaged of his kidneys. One of the renal functions is to secrete EPO. With the damage of his kidneys, his renal functions will reduce gradually. He will feel much more tired later if his damaged renal cells can't been repaired timely. So he'd better inject EPO to help him improve his Hemoglobin to make him feel strong.

2. His Albumin level is low because the damage of his glomerular epithelial cells. Generally Albumin will not lower in his blood however lose of protein in urine will cause swelling in his body, it will also aggravate his kidney disease.

3. His potassium level is higher than normal range ,because his renal function of balancing electrolyte has been reduced with the damage of his renal cells. It will cause the heart problem if it can't been reduced timely .
