Re: Kidney question
At this point with his kidneys, waiting a month will not cause any harm, especially since his potassium is still in the normal range. Given that his creatinine is almost 2, this means he has lost about 50% of the function. Don't worry, he can live a long time with cr. at that level, but unfortunately, the damage is not reversible. It was possibly a combination of the high bp and the high glucose. He definitely needs to see specialists for both. It is very important to see a nephrologist (kidney specialist) to get the most updated care possible. This doc will also be able to deal with the high bp. He absolutely has to get the sugars down too. You will hear a lot about low carb and eating a lot of protein to get this to pass. It can be dangerous to put too much pressure on a damaged kidney by eating a lot of animal protein. You will need to find a happy medium. Again, talk to the neph about this.
Hope this helps a bit. Feel free to ask lots of questions.
