Avatar m tn According to the FDA, some studies have found D-ribose supplementation causes an increase in uric acid. High uric acid levels (hyperuricemia) may not cause significant adverse effects in most people however some may develop gout, kidney stones, or kidney failure resulting from high uric acid levels. As kidney function declines and large amounts of proteins are passing into the urine, swelling of the hands, feet, abdomen and face may occur.
381616 tn?1204341934 Unless there is a contraindication( for example pregnancy, allergy, worsening renal failure on ACEs) , all diabetics with proteinuria should be on an ACE inhibitor or ARB, even if they only tolerate a low dose. It has been shown in study after study to reduce the progression of renal failure, so it is very important. Statins have also been proven to have many benefits and should be considered for use in all diabetics under the right circumstances.
Avatar n tn Author Conclusions Subjects with HBV, HCV infections and HBV/HCV co-infection had elevated risk of liver-related mortality compared to subjects without HBV or HCV infection HCV infection may be associated with death from several extra-hepatic manifestations such as cerebrovascular disease (mainly intracranial hemorrhage) and renal failure, which may result from cryoglobulinemia and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis4,5" This reiterates what I'm saying about the effects of HCV on th
Avatar n tn The nephrologist said that he does not think my kidney failure is due to my diabetes or to the pregnancy. he thinks it may be from some "other" disease. Anyone experienced this or have any ideas?? I am terrified. He named a couple diseases that it might be, and only two i can remember....lupus and Hep C. I believe i was tested for Hep C when i had my son, so i dont think that is a possibility. Please help.
Avatar n tn However, it may be severe enough to cause (as well as be caused by) renal tubular acidosis or even end stage renal failure, due to disruption of the renal tissue by the deposited calcium) are reported, and proteinuria (the presence of an excess of serum proteins in the urine.
Avatar m tn This is accompanied by a foamy urine which could be due to proteinuria. Diabetes can affect the kidneys and cause nephropathy. The earliest indication of this is microalbimnuria. The hyperglycemia produces increased matrix production and thickening of the of the glomerular basement membrane (GBM). This causes the nephropathy. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Now when you meet your doctor the following tests may need to be done.
Avatar f tn The higher the protein in mg the faster the progression to End stage renal failure in some Kindey disease. Some Kidney diseases do not excrete protein but still continune to end stage renal failure. You would need a biopsy to see if you carry a kidney disease that is not related to diabetes or high blood pressure. Some of these are FSGS, MCD and PKD. There are many support group forums for Kidney disease. Also understand Stage 3 is broken into 2 different Stages.
Avatar f tn The current treatment of choice for HCV infection is interferon and ribavirin. However, in patients with severe renal failure, only interferon monotherapy is recommended because ribavirin cannot be removed by dialysis. Thus, it accumulates and causes severe breakdown of red blood cells (hemolysis) and anemia.

Avatar m tn http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/proteinuria/ The fragments that you pass in urine could be blood clots. Has the urine been tested for blood? It is important to test your GFR (Glomerular filtration rate). Since you have a strong family history, your case should be followed up rigorously, investigated in detail and treated. I think you should discuss this with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar n tn Hello, My dad had a renal failure 7 months ago because of diabetes. He's 55 now and going for dialysis twice in a week. We are thinking to go for transplant this month, so he can live normal life. We do have donor but doctor said, we need to get heart, lungs and liver test first before we can get the transplant date. We were told by other doctor that, my dad has small amount of water in his lungs and his liver looks little damage as well.
1094587 tn?1376003310 The most common cause of proteinuria is kidney damage resulting from diabetes and hypertension. Others could be due to urinary tract infections, immune disorders, trauma and cancer. Some of the chronic infections such as tuberculous kidney may require (IVU / IVP) intravenous pyelography / urography for diagnosis (as well as urine culture for tubercle bacilli.). Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.
Avatar f tn My mother has had some blood pressure issues off and on and was recently diagnosed with type two diabetes and proteinuria, blood work for her kidneys continues to decline so I'm concerned she could perhaps have this as well, however her potassium level is 4.0. As for me, I have ended up in the ER more times than I can count with severely low potassium levels. I still can't get my potassium into the normal range even though I'm on high amounts of pottasium supplements.
