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.

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.

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.

Hi Readers,

I want to share my valuable experience with you all.
About 8 months before I was searching for a good hospital to get my father treated in Bangalore , as he is suffering from CKD since 3 years and since 10 months he is under Dialysis. To best of my knowledge, I got to know about "Dharma Kidney Care" and Dr. Prashant.

I visited him to discuss about my father's case, present condition and future prognosis; before I could get him here.
Believe me guys, he listened to all my details and queries so patiently and gave me many tips based on which I could guide my father being far from him. That time only I decided that I going to get my father for second opinion and advice regarding is treatment and progress.

Later on when I got him to this place, he continued dialysis at Dhama Kidney Care under the supervision of Dr Prashant. After the first session itself not only me, even my parents were so satisfied with the service, behavior and genuiness of the Dr and all the staffs over there. I felt so satisfied.

The way they started all the investigation and based on the investigation report all the treatments they conducted, my father really started improving. I could feel the confidence growing in him that he can be better if he continues like this. Seeing his courage and enthusiasm, we started getting motivated that "yes, we are on the right track and things will improve." Trust me this feeling of satisfaction took me to high. I was so happy to see my parents believing in them again and mostly ion the treatment.

Gradually we got to know how to maintain his day to day life. regarding food, medication everything they used to guide us. Tthey taught us as well how to check the Dialyser to that we will not get misguided.
I have never seen any hospital guiding so much on their own.

Starting from Dr Prashant, Dr Mahesh, Mr Kumar till all the staffs were very helpful, cooperative and caring.
From the bottom of my heart I thank Dr Prashant and all the staffs of Dharma Kidney Care to guide us in a correct path of Dialysis and moreover to boost my father's confidence and way of living which hardly any hospital or even any doctor is able to do now a days with such patients.
Hats Off to All of you!

I am posting all my experiences here and I really want people who are really suffering from Kidney complication should get care and treatment like this. I know how it feels to be in this state... so I will definitely want to guide people in a right direction.
In this era, where we, being laymen are looking for genuine treatment, health care centers like this should come up with the motive to service patients. Then only people will get back their faith and trust on Health sector.

I hope my experience will surely motivate people to get guided.

Thanks

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.
