My Grandma has been told her kidney function is at 4%. She was diagnosed with kidney failure some time ago (years) & has refused dialysis. Her kidney function was at 10% in April 2016, but then dropped to 5% in October. It’s now November & it’s dropped again to 4%. What should we expect over the next few months?

It is impossible to provide a prognosis without seeing a patient and performing a complete history and physical examination.  Whatever symptoms she has at the present time are not likely to change.  She should aim to do as well as she can for as long as she can.
