People vitamins are fine and might be worth a try to help with appetite.

The Pepcid AC should definitely be helping if there are any issues with nausea.

The Alk Phos value that you posted is actually the alkaline phosphate value and is a measure of liver function. There should also be a value for Phosphorus somewhere in the test results.

It looks like the first test was done in International Units and the second one in U.S. units? In Canada International Units are normally used.

Given a diagnosis of early stage CRF and the issues Tus has been having with weight loss and lack of appetite, I am quite surprised that the urea and creatinine numbers are not higher, although the USG is definitely low.
