It depends on the functionality of other systems in the body

It depends on if you are a diabetic, hypertensive, and how your kidney function, liver function is?

I can also call you and discuss you about this. You cana ccept the offer of phone call, so that I call you.

I don't think ou will much regress in 6 months span. Just make sure your over all health is good. Eat healthy food, maintain normal levels of blood sugar levels and hypertension, see that creatinine is not raised. Have regular follow up with your doctor.

Hope this helps.
