Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
I/we suspect that adrenal fatigue has caused or is present here in some way...perhaps a gluten allergy... His mother ? is gluten intolerant as ? are aunt and cousins.Adrenal fatigue is not the problem and adrenal fatigue would not cause such kidney problems. His family history of gluten problems is also not something that would be causing such a kidney problem. However, if a person has gluten intolerance he/she is more prone to other autoimmune diseases.
The most likely cause of the kidney problem seems to be an autoimmune attack directed to the kidneys which is what they have treated him for with the immunosuppressive medications.
If the kidney has been to such an extent that he is on regular dialysis then kidney transplant is something that would be very helpful.
Actually the thing is that since he is already fluid overloaded in the sense that he has swelling of the body. That is the reason why fluid has been restricted.
It is because he is fluid overloaded rather than being dehydrated.
When one loses protein in the urine there is swelling of the body which will require fluid restriction.
It seems irreversible as far as I can see it however I would like that you should ask this question to the treating nephrologist.
