Four months ago my endocrinologist put me on lisinopril 5mg for kidney protection. He would like to increase my dose but cannot because my blood pressure is borderline low as it is. I am really scared about what this all means for the future health of myself and my kidneys. I am interested in any information available abouth the long term implications of this (specifically, the time frame of progression), how commonly this occurs, can it reverse, and any other information/advice.
I have gone to several specialist with no success so far. Currently taking Plavix, Aspirin, Simvastatin, Carvedilol/Coreg/, LIsinopril. Stopped the stating for a week but this did not help. Read that sometimes Lisinopril can cause chest pains and pain in between the shoulder blades/I have one too/, so the cardiologist and I mutually agreed that I will stop taking it for a week and see the results. In the meantime will monitor my blood pressure 3 times a day.
It is not defined within any race and seems to hit post- menopausal women. Researchers are looking for the 'why' while looking for a treatment. I'm glad it's 2008; if this had been several years ago the NIH protocol studies would not have been out there for researchers to concentrate on and I would certainly be in worst shape. I am the Poster Child at Emory for this dysfunction and the researchers are therefore learning a lot from my experience.
Like most cats, Pickles had kidney failure. Ian was on dialysis for 7 years and has been transplanted for 2. He's really feeling it because he and Pickles were very close and he'd had him since he was a boy of 10 years old.
I am reposting articles / summaries on the treatment management of chronic HepB. "cajim" located these articles which are quite informative. I thought about putting them on a seaprate Health Page but didn't think it was appropriate since we didn't write them. Let's make this a sort of "Unofficial Research Thread" or "URT" for this type of information. Let's keep this URT free of comments.
Any way I also would be interested in what anyone might have to say about it and or what they may have learned from this? If you know or even think this to be the case for you I would also like to correspond with you to trade stories and info on what you''ve learned and done. Be well.
I have been trying to find info on Cyclosporin use for hives. I was told in high doses and long periods of use it can cause kidney/liver problems. Can't find out what is high doses and long period. Allergist told me I'd need to take this 6 mo to calm my immnue system that has for an unknown reason gone out of whack! I do hvae two auto immune disorders: hashimoto's thyroiditis and Vitiligo. Since my thyroid levels have mostly been in control,Dr's have dismissed that as the trigger.
29,2003 and Aug 31,2003, they all lasted for 5 days. I tracked my fertile days for three months and was sure that I ovulated on Nov 12,2003 I had all the ovulating symptoms. I also had unprotected sex on Nov 11,2003. I went to the doctor on Dec.1,2003 and they gave me both a urine and blood pregnancy test that came back negative. I've been having mild cramps from time to time but I really don't feel pregnant. My stomach is still flat and I always feel empty other than that I'm normal.
If it's an allergy (for me) I think it might be to MSG, if it's an intolerance (again for me) at the moment I'm thinking it's to very fatty foods. It's always worse when I'm stressing about something. Does any of that apply to you? You can get IBS tabs over the counter (we can here in UK anyway). Or you might want to try testing out foods to see if you are allergic/intolerant. It's a pain to do this (I keep meaning to, but haven't yet).
