Sir, my father is a kidney patient undergoing dialysis in alternate days. Now he is admitted in hospital. Creatinine 2.2, blood urea 45, and his age now 69. Now doctor said he have infection in blood. Total count TC is 28,000. Antibiotic treatment now being given. The height level of TC is dangerous?

Infection is a very common event in dialysis patients and is very concerning.  I suggest that you continue to consult with the physicians who are caring for your father.  Infection can generally be cleared in dialysis patients but the bacteria and sensitivities to antibiotics must be tested.
