Redhen, welcome to the forum. Sue gave you correct information. Here is the link to a site where you can calculate your husband's MELD score, if you have the labs to input:
I had been on diuretics since '06 and noticed that my renal scores were gradually getting higher. So, with my hep doc's encouragement, I have decreased the amount I am taking and hopefully will be able to come off of them entirely. I noticed that in the 2 wks. I had decreased them to every other day, my renal panel is now almost entirely normal.
I'm glad that you have Hospice involved. They will be a great help to your family and your husband. I'm glad you decided to post and hope that you will continue to do so.
