Kidney function problem

My wife(27yrs, two children) was complaining of feeling unwell, weakness and fatigue while she was suffering from aneamea and calcium deficiency. All that happened along with prolonged period of mild fever of unknown origin after she caught and got well from high fever chicken pox for a almost a week. As she continued to feel unwell, recently we saw an MD who then diagnosed her with higher than normal level of s. urea and s. creatinine in blood and told us that her kidney is not functioning as normal and it's kind of a serious problem. She had urine infection but urine culture was ok. He advised some medicine of kidney, urine infection along with iron but asked not to take calcium tablets. Consequently the s. Creatinine level came down to almost normal within two weeks, then calcium was advised only to raise the creatinine level in her blood to our worry. The whole family is now worried about her kidney disfunction and we're wondering what can be done to her recovery at this time.

Persistent foamy urine

I am a 19 year old student and for past few weeks I've been passing continuous foamy urine. At first, the traces of foam were negligible but they have become noticeable over time. Other online health forums suggest that it could be some serious kidney condition and must be looked after immediately. Help would be appreciated, thank you.

Kidney related

My father was admitted to hospital due to urinary infection initially and later we learnt that the infection has affected the kidney as well. Since then he was advised to be on dialysis for 3 days a week. Creatinine levels are not coming under control as expected. However his kidney look normal in the ultrasound and no shrinkage have been detected. The urine output is close to 1.5 litres per day. After a month, he is now advised to go through dialysis for 2 days in a week. Please let me know approximately how long should he go through dialysis..

During normal health check-up, my father diagnosed with high creatinine level. When we visited another doctor at our native place we lost our confidence and we were worried. After going through Practo reviews, we visited Dr. Prashant at JP Nagar. After the first visit itself, he has built confidence with in us. He is honest and treats patient as per the requirement, there was no unnecessary tests and heavy medications. We visit the hospital frequently and each time we are treated well. Hospital staff are also very supportive and cooperative.

As my father stays at my native place, it is not always possible to visit Bangalore. However, Dr. Prashant encourages to get the tests done at my native place and to email the results to him. He immediately reply's to the mail with proper advice.

Overall, I strongly recommend Dr. Prashant for any Kidney realted issues.

Tell you frankly ...since from past 4 years I am undergoing dialysis first and foremost i lost the job then somehow i managed my dialysis expense for 2 years then i thought of reducing cost and gone to cheaper dialysis centre but for that I paid a heavy price of getting infected with hepatitis C infection the most deadly infection due unhiginic practice in cheaper centre and Hepatitis C is very difficult to treat and one of major cause of liver failure.now getting transpant also become high risk and a really threat to my family too of getting spreading.
that is the time I met doctor and really showed me the world class dialysis and showed me the art of keeping hygienic approach even from the world's best R.O water treatment plan to entire techniques of the specialised technicians.
BELIEVE ME AFTER INTERACTING WITH DOCTOR AND FOLLOWING HIS ADVICE I STARTED GAINING LOT OF CONFIDENCE AND RESTARTED MY JOB WITH MORE ENERGETIC AND WITH LOT OF CONFIDENCE.I STARTED IMPROVING MY EARNINGS TOO AND NOW I CAN MANAGE MY ALL TREATMENT EXPENSE ON MY OWN.
I ALSO FEEL THE BEING WITH AND FOLLOWING WITH RIGHT SPECIALIST FOR THE KIND OF KIDNEY DISEASES IS ALWAYS MATTERS A LOT RATHER THE THINKING FOR SAVING FEW BUCKS.
