This is my aunt's case. I don't completely know the condition but am aware of the basic problem. She has a problem of kidney failure and she had been getting her kidneys dialysed twice every week. But from a few months she has been undergoing dialysis thrice a week on doctor's reccomendation. Recently she has been losing a considerable weight. She lost 6 kgs in 6 months and she became very weak. Local doctor ruled out the option of kidney transplantation as she is weak and as new kidney may not well fit to adjust the body. Is there any treatment for her? It is really very important for her family that she regain her health. Please do give genuine answers and please help.
