Common Questions and Answers about Amlodipine kidney function

norvasc

The doctor still saw the need to put me on another medication, so now im taking Benazepril and Amlodipine. And at times checking my BP myself it has been down to like 127/80. Im only 24 and thats what worries me. I have a family history of High Blood Pressue big time. My Grandad and Dad both had it. My Dads was so high, at the time they couldnt even maintain it. Im also overweight. During my first visit to the doc I weighed about 250 at 6 feet tall.
Hale2uf - I'm posting your questions on a new thread so that it will hopefully get more notice and responses. The "Kidney Failure" thread was getting so long that new issues were overlooked. ********************************************************************* To: Aggieone and All, My baby girl Jetta was diagnosed with kidney failure 3 weeks ago. For 5 days she was on IV flushing; she kept pulling out her IV.
of course (meaning that kidneys cannot repair themselves, like some organs can -like the liver) -so usually, by the time kidney failure is diagnosed, 75% of kidney function is lost. So all there is to work on is the remaining 25%. It's a question of getting that 25% to stay that way for as long as possible. It can be "managed" like that, but full function can never be restored. Now most dogs won't show many symptoms at all until the nausea starts, and they go off their food.
Increased creatinine levels in the blood suggest diseases or conditions that affect kidney function. The increased creatinine levels could be due to blood pressure affecting the kidneys. This may need further evaluation. Discuss with your consulting doctor. He may do tests like urine analysis, blood tests, X rays, ultrasonography, CT scan and sometimes cystoscopy to detect the cause for increased creatinine levels. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
In some situatins, ankle swelling could be the result of fluid build up in your body, either from congestive heart failure or impaired kidney function. Additionally, certain blood pressure medications, such as the calcium channel blocker amlodipine, can cause ankle swelling. Finally, ankle swelling may just be due to the effects of gravity after a long day on your feet. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor.
How is her kidney function? Does she take Cholesterol reducing medication? How about Norvasc (Amlodipine - Alpha-Channel Blocker)?
Now when you meet your doctor the following tests may need to be done. Assess the kidney function, this is done by a blood urea and creatinine and sometimes a GFR (glomerular filteration rate). Assess the kidney structure, with an ultrasonogram, an IVP (intravenous pyelogram), here a dye is injected to study the kidneys. Sometimes a CT or MRI may throw more results. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Recent head injury, hyperthyroidism, renal artery stenosis (by dopplar studies or MRI), abnormal kidney function (by kidney function tests), hyper function of adrenals, Cushing’s syndrome, abnormal liver function etc need to be ruled out. To diagnose the cause tests like kidney function, liver function, lipid profile, thyroid, adrenal gland function, EKG, ECHO, tread mill etc are done. Please discuss with his treating doctor to know what tests have been done and what needs to be done.
CIDP or chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy is managed with vitamin supplements, and a detailed deficiency evaluation is important assessing B6, thiamine, niacin and B12 levels. Investigate celiac disease, thyroid, kidney and liver function, gout etc cause small fiber neuropathy. You will need to be investigated for tarsal tunnel syndrome, CRPS or complex regional pain syndrome and autoimmune processes.
The HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) is a good blood pressure medication and would certainly be reasonable to continue as long as your kidney function and lab tests for electrolytes are ok. If you have blurry vision, headaches, chest pain, or shortness of breath with blood pressure that high, you need to get to an emergency room ASAP!
A better beta blocker to use rather than metoprolol is carvedilol as it acts to lower blood pressure through a different mechanism than metoprolol. A better calcium channel blocker to use in you would be amlodipine (rather than diltiazem) as it works to lower blood pressure much more effectively. The HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) is a good blood pressure medication and would certainly be reasonable to continue as long as your kidney function and lab tests for electrolytes are ok.

I have an elderly cat (age 23) who is being treated for hyperthyroid, high blood pressure, low potassium, a kidney infection, and reduced kidney function. He also has arthritis. His treating vet recommended Tramadol. Anyone have experience using this? I want to help him with his pain but I don't want to create new problems. anyone have advice?

checked creatinine clearance by 24hrs urine collection every 12 month. That was how we found out protein in the urine. Kidney function is fine but got protein and glucose on urine because of the Fanconi syndrome which caused the kidney tubes releases protein, glucose and other minerals to urine instead of returning to the body.
I had a kidney stone (6.5 mm) removed via ureteroscopy/laser lithotripsy on 11/18/05 because it became lodged at the ureto-vesicular junction after 12 days of excruciating right flank pain (6-8 hrs. per day) as it passed all the way down the right ureter. The day after the surgery, I experienced a different pain in the RUQ of the abdomen extending under and into the rib cage, back, and right shoulder area.
I do like the kidney guy's efforts to save my kidney function after having BP issues since I was 22 and was under the impression that I had a rheumatic condition., not a neurological one. But, the cardiologist does provide some important input and keeps tabs on my cardiac function and arrhythmias. So, I feel comfortable with the two of them settling it among themselves. They do keep in contact with each other.

3.2/AST:297/ALT:128 also kidney function came abnormal Creatinine:2.5. Other tests were US, CT scan MRCP and paracentesis.(they removed 5 "turkey baster" size vials of fluid-green in color). The report states the procedures didn't show any intrahepatic dilatation or obstruction-still waiting for his Hep-c viral load.
Thanks to all you guys for posting these side effects cause my Dr thinks i'm crazy for telling him the same things. This stuff wipes me out so bad i can't function for days after 1 5mg pill. A half pill does the same thing so i took a fourth pill yesterday and it was better but still bad. I had a 5 graft bypass in 2004 and never had irregular heartbeat till after a stent last oct and it started in Nov. I am a thin person but my middrift gains weight. Body hurts and in the kidney area hurts to.
The drug Lisinopril or any in it's class require checks of the kidney function (blood test) with any new symptoms. It would be of great benefit to you to keep a diary of your symptoms with details regarding time of day and what activity you were doing or not soing when they occurred. You are absolutely on target when you stress the need for good blood pressure control as no one's heart is happy in the face of continued high blood pressure. Good Luck.
Before that you achieve some removal of macrophage and dendritic cell deactivation, also a function of the hbsag, but not the liberation of the anti hbsag tcell epitope response. Patients that still have unmutated core epitopes available can continue elimination all the way down to seroconversion of the hbsag and then also by stabilizing activation of the untouched hbsag epitope reservoir.
I have a history of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and had half my thyroid removed at age 17 though its function has remained normal. I had a large lipoma removed from the left side of my pelvic area at age 22. Symptom onset: during pregnancy 2 years ago. My first symptoms were tingling on my back (left side), heart palpitations, episodic diarrhea with tingling in my legs and usually dizziness as well, one-sided headaches with blurriness in that eye (almost always the left).
She is in fourth stage renal failure-Of course she has seen her regular vet for fluids-ultra sound revealed she has one kidney which is failing. Creatine was 13-subs at home-now using hollistic and homepatic treatment. Recently more bad days than good. I am giving her ice chips which seem to work better for her than lapping. Pedialyte ice is also better.
I also saw my cardiologist today (this morning) and my echo was normal. She prescribed Amlodipine Besylate but only 2.5 grams at night to see if it would give me any relief. I asked the esophageal specialist about it when he called this afternoon and he said it is OK to take and too low to affect the study or to really help me LOL great. The thing is my weight is down to 104 and I'm 5'6" and my bp is 110/70 so my cardiologist probably didn't want to overmedicate me.
Cant see a nuroligist until end of this month but these past 2 months have been H*ll I cant focus on anything, forget half of what i am talking about, have headaches and seems to lose total function or partcial function of my right arm and right leg at a moments notice. Tinglly feeling in my right hand and fingers almost constantly, feels like someone is stabbing me with a knife in my neck, collar bone and shoulder on my right side from time to time. PLEASE TELL ME THIS GETS BETTER.
