My mother has CKD along with pulmonary and neuro sarcoidosis. She has been in the hospital since November. Recently we discovered she has a heart valve infection, within the last week she has passed out twice due to low blood sugar. The doctors do not seem concerned and were ready to release her. I'm trying to understand what is going on and how serious her situation is. I need help finding a good source of information, so that I can ask her doctors the right questions. If anyone knows a good source of information about CKD and other diseases that could cause complications, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
