Hello doctor,

My mother suffers from kidney disease with creatinine levels of 6.4 mg/dL affected by diabetes, and hemoglobin levels are 6.3 % with a blood sugar level of 133 mg/dl. Treatment has been going on for the last ten months, but no positive results have been observed. Also, six months back, she was admitted to the hospital for shortness of breath, for which she recovered within five days, but now creatinine levels fluctuate, and she is also constantly losing weight. Currently, she is taking iron injections and medicines for kidney function. Kindly suggest whether there is any chance to get a proper treatment to control creatinine and increase hemoglobin.



Welcome to

I read your query and can understand your concern.

A serum creatinine level of 6.4 mg/dL is very high, suggesting stage 4 kidney disease. So at this level of creatinine, your mother will need dialysis treatment. Kidney transplantation will be the best option if fitness and physical examination are suitable. You can consult a good urologist for further discussion regarding different possible management.

I hope this helps.

Thank you and take care.
