Glutamine kidney disease

Common Questions and Answers about Glutamine kidney disease


Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much olde. When their kidneys begin to fail them. Diarrhea is related because when the stone is stuck in the ureter ( the tube leading down to your bladder from your kidney) this sends a message to your entire digestive tract to stop.

Avatar f tn The study also found that undiagnosed celiac disease may actually be part of the process that triggers an underlying autoimmune disease. In their findings they wrote: "We believe that undiagnosed celiac disease can cause other disorders by switching on some as yet unknown immunological mechanism.

Avatar m tn I'm so worried! This is her the reaction to her first dosis this time and the nurse at the clinic didn't let her see the physician and made no blood tests whatsoever regarding her one impaired kidney when she went there yesterday, and send her back home with "that's normal". But I know on weekends they like to turn people away... My mom was diagnosed with another boust of OC earlier this year. She already had it once, 6 years ago.
Avatar n tn HEPATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY The liver metabolizes and breaks down many substances, vitamins and nutrients. Protein is broken down into glutamine and ammonia. In the decompensated stage of liver disease, the liver becomes unable to break down and rid the body of ammonia. Toxic levels build in the blood and brain, causing a condition known as hepatic encephalopathy.
789879 tn?1321330762 It gave me lots of nutrients and helped to balance my blood sugars throughout the day because of the phaseolomin (sp?) which is an extract from white kidney bean. It does add extra calories, but my doc said to ignore the ones in the shake and I could have up to 4 scoops which I spread out through the day.

Researchers at the National Cancer Institute found that men who exceeded the recommended dose -- taking more than seven multivitamins a week -- increased the risk of advanced cancer by about 30 percent. From CBS website,,,, too much of anything can be bad...

Avatar f tn Ketosis can cause organ failures and result in gout, kidney stones or kidney failure. It's an unhealthy metabolic state and can be dangerous for those with heart or other issues. You are basically telling me that it's my fault that I'm not losing weight because I don't eliminate gluten and dairy from my diet; you sound like my previous doctor who blamed everything on me.
Avatar m tn obesity, heart diseases, adult diabetes, breast, colon, and prostate cancer, gallbladder disease, osteoporosis, kidney failure, kidney stones, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, constipation, diverticulosis, hemorrhoids, and hiatal hernia to name a few well studied diseases. You don't have to be a trained nutritionist to see the risk of becoming sick increases the more of these unhealthy foods that are eaten--like with high-protein diets.
Avatar n tn Cirrhosis Cirrhosis of the liver is a chronic, diffuse (widely spread throughout the organ), degenerative liver disease in which the parenchyma (the functional organ tissue) degenerates, the lobules are infiltrated with fat and structurally altered, dense perilobular connectivetissue forms, and (often) areas of regeneration develop. The first scientist known to have diagnosed the disease was Gianbattista Morgagni, who published 500 autopsies in 1761.

Avatar f tn and most of all being much healthier and more energetic overall! Rico. Lyme disease is known to cause adrenal abnormalities at the hormonal receptor sites. Your serum hormone levels -I'm assuming you've done a complete hormonal panel- could be be fine but still adrenal dysfunction could linger around for a long time, and that unfortunately goes unDX'd most of the time. Or worse, misDX'd as CFS. "Medical sentence" for life usually, as sufferers have very little chance of recovery.
Avatar m tn If not, what would cause them? How does stiffness start in motor neuron disease, and would it start before weakness? If I went to a Neuro, would they even do an EMG if strength and reflexes were fine? Thanks for your time.
Avatar f tn I thought about Lyme disease because several years ago, I had a peculiar rash which I never had tested, but then again...I've experienced this feeling when I was younger, long before I had the rash. The feeling has just continued to get worse and now, I'm lucky to have one day without it!! Perhaps it's a problem with my eustachain tubes in my ears, since I've had problems with those for 20 years and no ENT has been able to help with them.
Avatar m tn hepatic encephalopathy and Reye syndrome CSF C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase reactant and is elevated with inflammation. It is markedly increased with bacterial meningitis. Since it is very sensitive even with early bacterial meningitis, it is often used to distinguish between bacterial and viral meningitis. Tumor markers — Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), and hCG may be increased in cancers that have spread from other sites in the body (metastatic).
Avatar m tn I have also tried multi-vitamin mineral supplement, glutamine, whey protein, probiotic for constipation, Cal/Mag, Vitamin D. Omega 3, Vit. C, and nothing works. I am sensitive to winter and can’t do much compared to summer. I rest in beginning summer and then I get better overall in last few months of summer. I had SAD light this winter and it did help. Looks like serious SAD. Finances are an issue as well.
Avatar n tn I took Cipro in Dec '05 for a kidney infection and since that time I have had horrible belching and a distended upper abdomen. I never had these issues prior to the Cipro and I attribute the symptoms directly to the Cipro. I can put slight pressure on my upper abdomen and cause major belching at any time. I can give any soda-pop-swilling kid a run for their money now and never could before.
Avatar n tn Hi! I went to see cardiologist because I have tachycardia, high heart beat. For me, its especially when resting (often 100s-110s while just sitting; can rise to 120s just standing) and also with minimal exertion. This seems to be worsening over the months. It also appears to be taking longer for my heart to return to "normal" or baseline that it used to as well. I am only 46, female, with severe emphysema but otherwise excellent health & conditioning.
Avatar m tn After trying so many different things I still can't hack this problem. I have tried cleanses, probiotics, liver cleanses, L Glutamine for Leaky Gut, Green drinks, gosh you name it. Recently, I've been focusing on intestinal candida and I've been taking oregano oil and colloidal silver followed by Primal Defense probiotics for a week now and I just feel a bit tired and the odor is more persistent followed by crazy dreams. Not sure if this is die-off or not.
Avatar m tn eventually i ordered the powder forms of tyrosine and phenylanine/glutamine and mixed it with the EmergenC ....EmergenC has lots of vitamins in it plus the C which is so important as detox can take the immune system for a u mis it with water and the fluids are important during detox..
Avatar m tn brown rice powder by Jarrow Formulas, althea probiotic he mentioned by the same comapny, and Oxy powder, and Candida Cleanse from Purely Holistic Additionally, I recently added L Glutamine, quercetin, digestive enzymes, milk thistle, molybdenum, fish oil pills, and vitamin c 1000. I've been taking all of these for a short period of time. Just letting you all know my progress. The reactions are not improving .
Avatar f tn Went to dr and he did blood tests, checking for about 15 different things. Came back that I have Lymes Disease, Liver and Kidney malfunction, Mono, COPD thru chest x ray and Hepatitus B. 51 years old and never been thru so much pain...this is worth than having my 3 babies all at once. Going Monday for a skin biopsy of the hives...have to clue how they do that. I AM MISERABLE, still taking meds, but hives go away for a few hours after taking prednizone, then come right back.

Avatar f tn GERD is the abbreviation for the medical term that refers to reflux disease. Gastro Esophogeal Reflux Disease. Every GI I have ever seen recommends using Metuamucil or Citracel everyday. I know what you're talking about, because I had the same question myself when I first started having problems. I just can't use it, because I'm sensitive to it. So, I use the flaxseed meal. Psyllium fiber is also sold in healthfood stores without all the artificial flavorings that Metamucil has.
Avatar n tn of oxycontin extended release, and 80 mg hydrocodone daily for spinal disease and slipped disks at L5, L6, and C5 for about 2 years.(My neck is only a bulging disk, but causes migraines as well, which I take Relpax or Fiorcet.) I do see a pain specialist and internist and I've had two surgeries on my back to minimize the disks, but nothing now seems to work on my physical symptoms. I feel like my life is a losing battle.
Avatar f tn Cal-Mag Butyerate and L-Glutamine supposedly help heal Intestinal Permeability (leaky gut).
Avatar n tn STDs, diabetes, kidney disease, bladder disease, MS. As doctors acquire empirical information through testing, they can exclude or eliminate all of these conditions until they figure out the cause of yours.
