I read a lot of posts in the past few days and I have learned so much more about CKD. My father is a CKD patient for over 3 years. His stages keeps fluctuating between stage 2 and stage 3. My major concern today is his acidity, gastric ulcers and bleeding issues. Moment he stops taking his medications ( PPI, sucralfate, H2 blocker) his ulcers comes back.
I think it is the medicines that is causing him so much problem - the phosphate binder, Sodium Bicarbonate, blood pressure medications, vitamins, supplements. I really don't know. It's time to evaluate his medications.
We also plan to do his H.Pylori test- stool. Lets see what is the outcome.
We have taken up with his doctors but so far we are not able to help my father. I am worried and I really want to help him. I am here to understand from you little more so that I can go and talk to his doctors. Thanks - Jubi
