Sir, My mother’s serum creatinine level is 9.61mg/dl and serum urea level is 217 mg/dl. Her potassium and sodium level is 4.83 and 136.00 mEq/L, respectively. Her treatment is going on from India. We can not afford dialysis in present time. How can these levels be reduced by medicine, and what should be the diet eg. which fruit she should take? Her age is 46 years.

There are no medications that can improve kidney function, once that function has been lost due to chronic kidney disease (CKD).  I can only suggest that your mother consult with the physicians who are caring for her.  At her age, kidney transplantation should be considered.
