As we know, kidney failure is a common kidney disease with the kidney function gradually reduced. Your mother has been in end stage kidney failure and her kidney function has been reduced into 5%, and her illness condition is serious. In this condition, her kidneys have been damaged very severely, and she may suffer from some serious symptoms and complications.
you said your mother is lethargy and not eating anything, this means the lots of wastes and toxins have been building up in blood, which will cause her lethargy and loss of appetite. Then she need to start dialysis right now, or her illness condition will be more and more serious and even life threatening.
Dialysis is a common treatment which can substitute the station of kidneys and help filter the toxins and wastes in blood, which can help purify the blood and make patient much better. When your mother start dialysis, she need to have regular dialysis about 2-3 times a week depending on her illness condition.
