diuretics are contraindicated in renal failure, but I found Dr's are still giving it to patient which I think is unethical. Can you please tell me what alternative therapy could be given.
As Diuretics (Frusemide) are contraindicated in Renal Failure, then what to give?

Most diuretics can cause kidney failure and many meds are a problem if the person has kidney failure. There are some food that have mild diuretic properties, like cucumbers and of course caffeine. I know there are a few more too. Sometimes it is necessary to get fluids off, and diuretics have to be used even if its not a good idea. Its not up to you to decide if the dr is unethical without knowing his reasoning.
