Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

If you have kidney failure, you need to see a Doctor and then get the treatment done. The treatment is to get haemodialysis and some hormone injections. The Hormone injections are given to replace the kidney function. The kidney function replacement is with erythropoietin and calcium or some electrolytes to prevent complications.

Hope this helps you.
