I have been on hemo for 16 months, 8 of the last at home. At my last clinic my neph said he wants to take a 24 hour urine test as my bun creatnine level was back down to 33 as it was prior to dialysis. All other meds optimal. Anyone have any experience with anything like this?
I believe the kidneys can come back if you have acute kidney failure, usually due to an injury or damage and it is temporary.With chronic kidney failure they won't get better.I am pretty sure the BUN is improved because of the dialysis, but would get worse without it.My daughter had the 24 hour urine test many times and her numbers were very good, and the doctor explained it was that she was getting good results from the dialysis.
