Does anyone have any experience with end stage renal disease ESRD in a loved one? My 81 year old mom’s glomerular filtration rate GFR has been declining over the past few years. Just found out it was 10 (was about 16 a year ago). This is from years of uncontrolled hypertension. She has lost weight over the last year, sleeps a lot more and her dementia is pretty bad (at times). Itchy dry skin too. She has no intention of doing dialysis. Seems (now I don’t know exactly) to be urinating about the same?
Just wondering if anyone has some stories of what to expect in addition to some of these symptoms. I am in healthcare so I know the “data” but wanted possibly some real life
thank you all!
