Kidney Failure
Hi! My cousin, 33yrs old, has big problem with his kidney. His two kidneys failed to work now and basically needs dialysis twice every week. He's starting to feel extreme backpain and said he never felt this kind of pain before. The doctor didn' t find any cause of pain and we're worried that this might become worse for him. Has it something to do with his kidney problem or does it trigger other parts of the body to accumulate other disease?

Appreciate your help!

Cheers

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The pain could be due to an infection of the kidneys. The other causes for the pain could be infections of the bowel, prolapsed intervertebral disc or inflammatory diseases of the colon. Please discuss this with his primary care physician who will do blood tests, x- rays and may ask for an ultrasonogram to find out the cause for the pain.  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
