03/23/2011

Question:

Ultrasound impression is "grade 3 bilateral chronic renal parenchymal disease". Blood urea is 206, serum creatitine is 11. What is the start treatment? What are the treatment options? Is there any cure?

Answer:

The ultrasound results suggest advanced scarring of the kidneys, which is not curable or reversible.  The blood test results show a very severe degree of kidney failure.  The only helpful treatments at this point would be either dialysis (three times a week) or a kidney transplant.
