Avatar m tn It is important that you manage your blood pressure, maintain blood glucose, lipids, weight and ensure intake of vitamins, hormones and minerals. It is advised to visit doctors every 3-6 months, and regularly keep your condition at check. Keep me posted. Kind regards!
188761 tn?1584567620 I have already consulted my primary care about this today about 3 hours back and he has recommended a urine sugar test as the glucose level in her blood is not very high but pretty much in control. However, slightly above the diabetes benchmark. But, the glucose level in her urine is high and it shows some thing like "++++" on her reports. I am very concerned if it has some thing to do with the end stage renal disease / Kidney failure. My question to you is - 1.
Avatar m tn Kidney failure has been associated with uncontrolled and badly managed glucose levels. It would benefit you the most if you lowered your glucose levels to normal values. Your current glucose daily average - based upon your A1c 9.9% - is between 11.8-13.3 mmol/l [212-240 mg/dl]. HIGH. Foods? Look at diabetic nutrition and perform daily physical exercises. See this link, especially the paragraph on GFR
863754 tn?1239144755 My aunt is in the hospital, as I type this, fighting to stay alive. After speaking with the doctors about her condition, I've discovered that they have absolutely no idea why she's dying. I'm posting here in the hopes of saving her life. For some reason, her blood glucose levels won't stabilize. They'll give her a shot of glucose to get her levels up, but in the matter of a few hours, it's back down to around 50 or 60 and they have to give her another shot.
Avatar n tn Uncontrolled high glucose [blood sugar] can lead to severe complications. You husband is currently exhibiting danger signs, others to follow if ignored and left untreated are: * Blindness * Heart and blood vessel disease (known medically as cardiovascular disease) * Heart attacks * Stroke * Kidney failure * Amputations * Nerve damage "We are truck drivers and out here it is difficult to eat properly.
Avatar n tn Hi, if your a1c is 11.2 this means that your average blood sugars are over 300. This is terrible for your health and you are at risk for very serious complications along with stroke, heart attack, among others, in the very near future. Blindness, kidney failure, and wounds that won't heal are also high risk given your current levels. With your blood sugars this high you need to be taking insulin.
Avatar n tn You didn't mention whether your husband is controlling and managing his glucose [blood sugar] levels. If not, better control and management is very important to prevent the onset of health issues. Itchy skin can have hundreds of possible causes; Nerve damage caused by uncontrolled diabetes is associated with itchy skin but so are allergies to fragrances [bath and/or laundry soap], skin conditions such as pruritus [dry skin in seniors], eczema and psoriasis, and so on.
1531001 tn?1292034237 If you are able to share your dogs blood and urine results, I am glad to review and offer you specific natural therapies including a tasty home made diet, aluminum hydroxide to bind the excess phosphorus, B-Vitamins to boost red blood cell production, a specific protocol for daily home fluid therapy and other natural kidney nutrients to try to help return your dogs kidney function to a normal status.
Avatar n tn He feels fine because his body has gotten used to operating with high blood glucose levels. But that high level is destroying the small veins in his kidneys (which leads to failure) and in his overall circulatory system which can cause heart attacks and strokes. He will develop diabetic neuropathy (nerve loss in his hands and feet) and a condition called autonomic neuropathy where his brain is affected and does not register when his blood sugar goes too low, which can lead to a coma.
Avatar m tn What was your fasting Glucose? Normal range is 65-99 and did they do a ALT and a AST which is your liver? If that was normal great. My mom has fasted several times with a fasting blood sugar of 102 for yrs but the Dr wasn't worried about it. She still is NOT Diabetic and is 80.. When I got tested my Fasting Blood Sugar was 600 OMG...Ended up in the Hospital for fluids then they started me on Insulin.
Avatar f tn she also has congestive heart failure. she has type one diabetes and blood glucose levels have been running high around 200 for several days. she is in a nursing home and doesnt have any dementia, just chf , diabetes and kidney damage from diabetes. unable to walk due to fracture upper leg and hasnt been able to walk since july. really want to know why she thinks she has something in hand but really doesnt.
Avatar n tn it is not just the creatinine level that defines kidney failure, but also BUN (blood urea nitrogen levels) and several others. So while creatinine is a crucial factor, it is not the only one. The values are sometimes expressed by different laboratories (undertaking the test) in different ways and this can be confusing. For example, normal creatinine levels are expressed as: 0.5 to 1.
Avatar n tn Well, the fact that the first poster's husband did a comparison test and his number was normal at 86 would seem to indicate that the machine is NOT giving false numbers. Her blood sugar probably really IS that high, and this is extremely dangerous -- could be life-threatening. It really is imperative that she have a true lab test done to see if there really is a blood sugar problem.
Avatar n tn Higher than normal level of creatinine may be attributed to a variety of issues such as blocked urinary tract, dehydration, muscle problems as well as kidney problems, such as kidney damage or failure, infection, or reduced blood flow. It is best that you discuss the management plan with his attending physician for proper evaluation.
Avatar f tn They also told us this would be a very painful way for her to die. We were told with the lasix she would go back into kidney failure. They told us with kidney failure, as her kidneys shut down, she would go to sleep and die peacefully in her sleep. We chose to have her resume the blood thinner and the lasix. At the nursing home she fell, broke a hip and was sent back to the same hospital, again taken off the blood thinner and lasix. She had pins put in her right hip.
Avatar f tn A re-test in 2 weeks would certainly be worthwhile. High blood glucose and excessive vitamin C supplements can also cause high creatinine levels to occur. I would be interested in the SubQ fluid dose (to see if it is accurate for your dog) ... can you let me have your dog's weight please? Given the possible liver enzyme abnormality, it may be worth using Milk Thistle as a supplement (this will help protect the liver).
Avatar n tn He requested blood work prior to her followup appointment. Her glucose levels were at 480. He thought it was strange that her primary care physician wasn't doing anything to control her glucose levels. He told her to contact her doctor immediately in regards to high blood glucose. This was on Monday. She had an appointment with her primary care physician on Tuesday anyways for an unrelated issue.
Avatar f tn Our uncle has High creatinine levels, critical potassium levels and in Kidney failure, he has stage 4 cirrhosis. Dialysis is the only hope we have if not they predict 2-4 weeks tops. Everything I have researched was that dialysis was not reccomended for cirrhosis. That is the only plan of attack. I dont know if that is to rule out everything to determine if he has hepatorenal syndrome or not but I do not want it to also take the time we do have however grim.
Avatar n tn Epikacin, is an old Calcium based product, formerly used to bind excess phosphorus and help eliminate it from the body, in pets with kidney failure. Unfortunately, excess calcium blood levels are usually also present in pets with kidney failure and because of this, newer products specifically Aluminum Hydroxide is considered to be the best product available to reduce excess phosphorus and calcium blood levels.
2067461 tn?1331216830 It means that zoloft absorption and its therapeutic levels in the blood will be achieved for kidney disease patients. It will act due to the adequate therapeutic levels. But since there is a problem with excretion, the dosage may need to be adjusted to lower levels. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
5595892 tn?1370579752 Kidney Disease- Mg deficiency contributes to atherosclerotic kidney failure. Mg deficiency creates abnormal lipid levels and worsening blood sugar control in kidney transplant patients. Liver Disease leading to liver failure- Mg deficiency commonly occurs during liver transplantation. Migraine- Serotonin balance is Mg-dependent. Deficiency of serotonin can result in migraine headaches and depression.
