T/R/O Bilateral renal parenchymal disease as per last USG Report on 29.7.2022. I lead a normal life, do exercises regularly, have a slight ache around the left side of the back, between the spine and the ribs ( had spondylitis in 2018 ) but other than that no other issues as such. I drink one to two pegs of Whiskey for 4 days a week. Non-Veg, have high pressure and cholesterol ( 185 ), for which I take medicines. Glucose Fasting level last checked in January, 2023 was - 106.50, while Creatinine was around 2.19, last checked was 2.06 in January, 2023. Please advise, if I should continue the same way. Thanks.

Ans: Have regular follow up with the Nephrologist and get necessary blood tests and adjust the medications based on that. Alcohol intake has to be reduced.
