I found one and have continued to cook this diet for Sparky since his diagnosis. He has done really well but lately I have noticed that he is panting more than usual. It has been hot in our part of the country but we have a yellow lab who doesnt pant as much.
Avatar f tn I am type 1 diabetic, hypertensive, and stage 3 kidney disease. Since I have no shortness of breath and a normal echocardiogram is this likely to be some sort of heart disease?

559187 tn?1330782856 I noticed that I haven't done an actual health update for over a week and think its a good time to do one.

However, it is not making much of a difference in my parathesia especially in my legs. I still get that pain for which I was prescribed Lyrica.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with grade 3 kidney disease. Both my kidneys are also only working at 50% capacity. I know nothing about kidney disease and am worried. I suffer from hypertension and on alot of medication and also have heart disease. I am due to have a operation for a prolapse, something to do with the colon I think.. What treatment can I follow for the kidney disease and how soon can this get worse. Is there anything I can do to heal or keep my kidneys from deteriorating.
