Heat exhaustion kidney failure

Common Questions and Answers about Heat exhaustion kidney failure


Avatar f tn They did a sonogram and she said the kidney's looked OK (not old and shrunken) but that there was some fluid around it, which was to be expected if his acute kidney failure was caused by a heat-stroke. At this point, we're extremely worried because we can see the medical bill going up ($6000 right now!) and we cannot afford to treat him much longer. Is there anyone who's had experience with this type of situation or can advise us on what questions to ask, what to look for etc.?
Avatar f tn She was 10 1/2 years old when we finally after 1 week of unbearable misery I put her down. She was diagnoised with renial kidney failure in September, 2008. She ate the Science Diet K/D wet dog food. At first she would eat 1/2 can at each feeding, plus a little bit of dry K/D 2x per day. She remained pretty stable for a year. She did go through boughts of no eating many times.
670955 tn?1226601500 Hi Jasper's mom & welcome.....Tums are used with Kidney Failure....It binds to Phosphorus to flush it from the failing Kidneys.....This process helps w/nausea....To my knowledge, it will do nothing for stone formation.....However, your dog would benefit greatly from it as a Calcium source which is vital for homecooking....Adding fresh, cooked veggies to your homecooking would provide even more Nutrition & moisture to help keep his Kidneys/Bladder flushed.....

1346101 tn?1288055549 It can be seen in association with diseases like diabetes, hepatitis, gall bladder disease, pancreatitis, kidney stone or failure. Vomiting can occur as a side effect from various drugs like painkillers both steroids and non steroidal medicines like ibuprofen, antibiotics and bowel obstruction. You have this for 2 years now causing significant weight loss so it needs immediate attention as it could be a chronic infection or pointing towards a bigger diagnosis.
Avatar f tn This has led to deaths from heat exhaustion and kidney and cardiovascular system failure. Ecstasy use greatly increases blood pressure and heart rate. Body temperature can increase to 109 degrees. Users who develop an acne-like rash and continue to use Ecstasy are at increased risk of sever liver damage.
1916673 tn?1420236870 It is hoped this reference guide will assist those with chronic kidney failure dogs, where one or more of the blood result levels are likely to be abnormally high or low. Although I have combined the results below, it is unlikely a dog will have all these elements in their blood test, as some are specific to particular diseases and conditions. The results that follow combine a blood chemistry panel test and a hemoglobin test, along with several other individual tests.

Avatar m tn As part of the surgery, an artifical bladder (florida pouch with stoma) was created along with an artifical vagina. She has now been diagnosed as being in stage 4 kidney failure after years of being treated by antibiotics for constant UUT infections caused by having to re-use catheters (before insurance finally stepped up to the plate and paid for 6 fresh catheters/day).
Avatar n tn heavy toxic metals (including mercury), high potassium, low sodium, and body is not digesting foods properly (as well as other things, I can't remember). My GFR was 58 (borderline kidney failure), but dr said it didn't mean anything. I'm constantly thirsty as well. HELP!
1138565 tn?1297107912 Problems breathing could be a sign of Congestive Heart Failure, or it could be an allergic reaction to something in the air. The bottom line is, if you think you're having problems with your heart, you need to see a doctor and have it checked out. Congestive heart failure comes with weight gain, due to retaining large amounts of fluid. Fatigue is another sign of something going wrong with the heart.
Avatar m tn Thanks. I've read it somewhere that heat and piperine increase turmeric bioavalability by hundreds. Very good idea!
Avatar n tn I would suggest you ask your doctor about getting kidney function testing and an echocardiogram to make sure your kidneys are okay and your heart also. Actually, high cortisol is associated with Cushing's whereas low cortisol is what one would expect in someone with Addison's. Did they check you for Cushing's? The way to find out about your iron supplementation- if it is sufficient- is to get an iron panel, including ferritin, T.I.B.C.
Avatar n tn Burning sensation all over the body may be due to peripheral neuropathy, renal failure, cholestatic liver disease. Peripheral neuropathy can result from such problems as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins such as diabetes, alcoholism, vitamin B12 deficiency, hypothyroidism, certain drugs, SLE, HIV / AIDS and many other causes.
Avatar f tn Apart from high internal temperature, the only other term doctors have linked are heat related illnesses such as heat exhaustion. They have said it may be a long term heat related illness. There aren't many things you/I can do to stop this, the only advice I was given was to 'keep cool' so ice cubes, cold drinks, fans: anything that keeps you cool can help you but otherwise, there isn't a whole lot you can do, if you have the same problem as me.
Avatar f tn Daily indigestion/heartburn Extreme fatigue/exhaustion with a big drop in energy towards the afternoon Feeling physically and mentally sluggish Very forgetful with brain fog and difficulty concentrating No interest in normal activities No sex drive Huge weight gain (in 5 years, I have gained over 40 pounds and this is with daily exercise when I have the energy, watching what I eat and joining a softball team to add some extra running 4 days a week which I never miss no matter how I feel) My na
Avatar f tn Hello I just returned from the hospital after sepsis. A kidney stone had blocked the kidney. I'm ecstatic to be alive but am quite curious to recovery times. I still have a tube in my kidney that should be removed next week. I was in ICU about 10 days ago. I first made a lot of quick improvements after that it seems very slow. My whole body is aching and hands and feet keep getting very cold and I get lots of headaches. Also my lung capacity is about 30%. Is all this normal?

Avatar n tn I have been so sick, fatigued, cloudy-thinking, waves of heat and pins and needles, too tired to walk across my house. My cortisol is between 3 and 4 and last week I was started on Cortef. I have adrenal insufficiency big time symptoms. Since the adrenal glands are responsible for over 100 hormones, I don't have hardly any and almost went into a type of Addison's crisis with cardiac symptoms.
97615 tn?1212682189 Hi, Cholinergic urticaria is a subcategory of physical urticaria (aka hives) that is a skin rash brought on by a hypersensitive reaction to body heat. Symptoms follow any stimulus to sweat such as exercise (sometimes called exercise-induced urticaria), heat from the sun (which could also indicate solar urticaria), saunas, hot showers (reaction to water can also indicate water urticaria), spicy foods which may cause an increase in body temperature or even stress due to blushing or anger.
177988 tn?1266802499 You are not a failure if you can't breastfeed. Yes Breast Milk is the best because it comes from you but if your baby isn't getting enough, you have to do what's right for the baby. I dont know you but I can tell how much you love and care for her because you are so broken hearted about this. You seem like a great mom and dont be so hard on yourself!!!!
Avatar n tn If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
Avatar m tn This could mean that E either messed up my serotonin levels, or messed up my circulation somehow. Heat does help 'soften' up my flaccid penis somewhat as others have mentioned. Also there is a possbility that I, as well as many of you, have some form of prostatitis. We need to go get that checked out. If that is the case than the good news is that it is treatable.
Avatar n tn I practically cut out salt from my diet over the last few years and switched to Liquid Amino when I had to have salt. Big mistake. I started to get heat exhaustion on hot summer days. A few months ago, I started to take about a tea-spoon of good quality sea salt. According to Chinese medicine, sea salt helps build up your kidney yin.
Avatar n tn To appease them I suggested that pain can be exhausting on the body and exhaustion causes seizures. They are more agreeable to that. I have a very minor heart condition and and sciolosis. After car accidents and returning to work...that is grossly hard on my back, my siezures return. I fell at work a few months ago and my seizures returned and became uncontrolled. If I control my back pain I seem to control my siesures.
15607012 tn?1442453350 I'm usually inside in 73°F air conditioning and I hadn't been exposed to heat like that in years. I did about three months of farm work in three weeks. There was a moment when I got so hot, dizzy, and exhausted I didn't think I would make it back to the house. I haven't felt right since. So now I'm going to list all the realistic possibilities based on what was going on, what I was exposed to, what the test results show, and how I was feeling then and now.
Avatar n tn She is obliged to take antibiotics everyday due to chronic kidney lithiasis and antalgics for headache or kidney stones. Fibromyalgia is not the dominant symptom, but her arterial pressure dropped to 7-8 with txt and never came back, fainting is recurent, exhaustion is daily present, brain fog, and sometimes she experiences breathing apnea and giddiness. But she is extraordinary and has a steel mind, even if we take life day by day.
Avatar f tn Little by little, a more physical kind of exhaustion is added to the condition. More and more effort is required to initiate activities and you sometimes break things due to inability to co-ordinate your movements with your visual impressions (ataxia). Headaches, minor involuntary muscle spasms or ticks within groups of muscles can also appear.
20391860 tn?1497234141 I so understand where you are coming from. I had a kidney transplant 4 mo ago. I decided to get of 2 mg of Ativan and 10mgs of Methadone a month later.
