Patient Comments: Kidney Failure - Treatment

What kinds of treatment did you or a relative receive for kidney failure?

Comment from: Onehun, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: January 10

By the time it was diagnosed, I had stage 3 kidney disease. Now doc's call it kidney failure. Don't see any difference. No treatment given just my own discipline to keep on the diet .I have many other conditions, and I am old. It is not easy worst is when I get the flu, I don't get no prescriptions not even for a half baby Aspirin. As far as I know Tylenol is as harmful as an aspirin, but aspirin helps subdue pain, Tylenol is for the birds.
