This indicates that your father has renal failure and most probably he is going to need dialysis soon.
But this does not tell us though what is the cause of the renal failure. The cause of the renal failure has to be investigated to see whether there is a reversible cause for the renal failure.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
