kidney Failure n Heart Failure
my mum has been diagnosed with heart n kidney failure. she has ef40 (decreased from 60) n little urine output 125ml with Lasix infusion for 1 day. can anyone share experiences n how can we help her
@dharsumi I'm sorry to hear about your Mum and perhaps someone will reply who has experience with Lasix infusion. Meanwhile, an eGFR of 40 is not too much to be concerned about as it is within Stage 3a of kidney disease and, as such, does not generally require treatment - in fact, consultants only usually step in when the function reduces to within Stage 4 CKD. What is important is for the function to be monitored to ensure that the level remains stable at around eGFR 40, for blood pressure to be maintained at normal levels, and to rule out diabetes unless already checked for that. Meanwhile, reduce or cut out all salt intake but ensure she drinks plenty of water.
