Abstract

At first we need to present and clarify the renal failure patient and what is his condition and how these conditions is dealt with, as our topic actually is about problems related to managing the kidney patient problems or complications.

MULTI VITAMINS FOR : Iron, vitamin B suff ering from high blood pressure so at least taking one type of anti hypertensive medications (sometimes with malignant hypertension) high doses of several types of anti-hypertensive medications are prescribed (may reach 230/130 ). Also the patient on dialysis in continuous stress causing stress ulcer together with uraemia causing gastritis. Both of which recommend good management alternating between proton pump inhibitors and antacids to avoid aluminium hydroxide protective coating as it is not eliminated by on dialysis active vitamin D (HYDROXYCALCIFEROL). For calcium metabolism (absorption and bone deposition), other less common medications pain killers for: Itching body aches. Antibiotics for secondary infections and catheter related infections so in general a patient may take between 5-8 tablets 3 times daily. Th at’s why we are here to talk about
