Consumption Of Furosemide In Patients With Kidney Failure?
Hello Hamidah, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Furosemide is a drug of the loop diuretic group that is indicated to be given in conditions such as hypertension, edema, heart failure, certain kidney disorders, liver disorders, and so forth. Furosemide may be given to patients with kidney failure in certain conditions, for example patients with CKD with hypertension, furosemide is also still recommended for use. It is true that improper administration of furosemide can also injure the kidneys further, but giving furosemide at the right dose for the right conditions can provide great benefits. Giving really must be adjusted to the condition of each patient. To find out more clearly whether there is an indication of giving furosemide to your father, it must be known in full the history of your father's disease, how severe the damage to the kidneys (what stage of CKD), other illnesses owned, your father's clinical condition at this time, and the results of supporting examinations that are there is. You should ask the doctor directly treating your father for indications of giving furosemide to your father. Your father's doctor certainly has his own clinical considerations before giving furosemide to your father.
You should not stop treatment before consulting directly with your father's doctor. If indeed there are certain symptoms that occur in your father, for example, your father looks increasingly weak, his urine is reduced or does not come out at all, severe nausea, vomiting, your father looks sleepy continuously, restless, or there is a decrease in consciousness, you should immediately take it to the hospital and don't delay.
Each doctor certainly has its own considerations in providing medicines for patients. We certainly cannot justify whether your father's medicines are correct or not because we do not know your father's complete history, do not carry out physical examinations, and do not know the results of your father's complete examination. Therefore, if there really is something you want to ask about the indication of drug administration for your father, you should ask directly to the doctor who examined your father directly.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
