Kidney Hemorrhage??

My father's doctor wants him to get a CT scan because she suspects a kidney hemorrhage. My dad is considering putting off the test because "If I did everything the doctors wanted me to do, I'd never get any work done." He is in his early 60's, his kidney function is at 34%, he also has Adult Onset Diabetes.

How dangerous is a kidney hemorrhage? What are the health repercussions to putting off the CT scan, if he does indeed have a kidney hemorrhage?

My opinion, he is foolish to not do it.  Hemorrhage anywhere is not good.  Being Diabetic, he may lose use of the Kidney and end up having dialysis three times per week.  Also the chances of having bloodclots having life threatening problems to deal with if he waits.

Ask him start this pranayam, to help to control and improve the kidney function.Your feedback at some point will help.
These pranayam exercises will help control the diabetes and the side effects.Build up the timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after about a minute.The benefits will be noticed in weeks as the sugar level is checked daily.Over the long term the diabetes will be in full control.The madukasan will help to exercise the kidneys.

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 15 to 30 minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 10 to 15 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently(once in 2 seconds).

Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30 minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years -  do 10 to 15 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Also everyday, press the centre point of the palm of both your  hands 40 times with the thumb and press the tips of all fingers 40 times each.
To stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin: mandukasan(not for pregnant women) - kneel down(with feet pointing inwards,and sit on the ankles/heels, Vajrasan position), breathe in and breathe out completely and hold your breath, pull the stomach in, press both your  hands on stomach, bend forward as much as possible keeping the head straight, hold for 5 to 15 seconds and come back up while breathing in.Do this asan 3 times daily before meals, to stimulate the kidney and pancreas.Mandukasan2 - Repeat the whole process(mandukasan) 3 times,but this time with with fists of both hands pressing against the stomach(by the navel).Mandukasan can be done sitting on a chair, if you cannot bend the legs.This asan should be done before meals.
Continue the breathing exercises once a day, after the diabetes is in full control.
