Hydrochlorothiazide kidney failure

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrochlorothiazide kidney failure


1243333 tn?1296446902 High blood pressure is not good for the heart and can lead to decreased function and an increase in angina. Your blood pressure should really be less than 140/90 and if you have diabetes or chronic kidney disease it should be less than 130/80. If you aren't on the maximal dose of Norvasc which is 10mg and the highest dose of Valturna then your physicians should probably start another bp agent such as Hydrochlorothiazide or increase the cattapress patch. Why are you on spironolactone?
Avatar m tn I suspect it was out-of-control hypertension which caused her kidney function to deteriorate. I measured her BP at 200/110 several occasions over the weekend. She says she was stressed out on weekends. But her resting BP on weekdays was still around 160/100. I don't know what her internist has been doing but they apparently thought her hypertension was under control. She stopped taking Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg, something she was on, a while ago.

Avatar m tn I'm 67 years old and I have congestive heart failure. I was recently in the vicinity of someone who was maced, and as hard as I tried, I couldn't escape the airborn spray. Since then, I haven't been able to stop coughing. My medication usually controls the fluid from building up in my lungs, but it doesn't seem to be working as well as usual now. Is it safe for me to use any over the counter cough expectorants?
Avatar m tn I'm so glad to find an online community of others with MSK! I'm a 34 year old female, and have had kidney stones since I was 16. At 19, they repaired a ureter defect and said that I wouldn't have stones again. During pregnancy a few years later, I had stones again, so badly they had to perform a cystoscopy and place a stent when I was 5 months along- that was one miserable pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Has anyone ever stopped Allopurinol and Hydrochlorothiazide? I had a rather large staghorn kidney stone about 2 years ago and I was tested and placed on these two medications. I started having very low B12 levels and I asked my Urologist if the Allopurinol could be causing this? I was having to take two B12 shots a month just to stay feeling well and cognitive. He said, it was rare but he didn't have a problem trying to get off of it.
941525 tn?1245298724 So congestive heart failure has definitely been ruled out? Have you ever been tested for pure autonomic failure? You might check ndrf website, an or that talks about dysautonomia. Did you also get your catecholamines tested when you were in the midst of one of these episodes? Also, did they do a plasma free metanephrine blood test on you? If you had a pheochromocytoma, it can emit catecholamines intermittantly and have quiet periods where your catecholamines would be normal.
1165078 tn?1338655745 I've been on Keppra for over 3 yrs now, other than gain weight as soon as I was put on the drug, I've had numerous UTI's and kidney infec. as well as Kidney stones, I reduced my dosage by half (1000mg/day down to 500mg/day) over a period of 4 months last yr, still szr free, and blood levels come back with in therapeutic range (something my Neuro can't quite explain yet isn't making me go back up to the 1000mg/day). But I'm having more kidney issues.. am I alone on this?
Avatar f tn , and it took him 6 months to get over it, but not before he gave it to me, and it cause CHF, and kidney failure, stages 4 and 5 respectively.....and it all started with lisinopril. I know several others who take lisinopril, some do okay on it, but not all.....usually people who don't get out much, or do much excercise, but for a 18 year old male, I think it might be a dangerous drug. However, that is just a PERSONAL opinion, and I have no medical training to back me up.
1668318 tn?1306416764 OK my Dr put me on these medications Hydrochlorothiazide/Spironolactone and having me weigh my self daily and i am wondering whats going on... I know i should ask more questions but Dr.s kind of intimidate me!!!! I know my creatinine is 1.33 and my gfr is 53 what ever that means grrrrrrr.........
Avatar n tn Hydrochlorothiazide (a thiazide diuretic) is a drug induced cause of hypercalcemia.
Avatar f tn I hope you find it helpful somehow, and blessings for you and your dog - Blu Stage 3 kidney disease is one of the final stages of canine kidney disease, in which your dog will begin showing symptoms of kidney failure. Canine kidney disease occurs when, for whatever reason, your dog's kidneys are not doing their job of removing toxins from the blood efficiently. Often, by the time kidney disease reaches stage 3, kidney damage cannot be reversed.
Avatar m tn I have had an heart failure due to high chotesterol so I am on medication for Hipertension/ High Cholesterol. I recent weeks after I start using Co-Diovan 160/12.5 mg in place of Hyzar I am experiencing a gradual tightening in the upper chest toward the neck/throat and it is as if i may stop breathing? I am not sure if the change in medication has anything to do with it! I use to to exercise for about 30 min. or more each day, I can do only 2-3 mins. and with great difficulty?
Avatar n tn All of my blood work came back normal, but my calcium level in a 24 hour urine test showed 366. He put me on Forteo and hydrochlorothiazide. 4 months later, my calcium level is still high at 353. He thinks I've stopped taking the hctz, but I haven't missed a dose. I'd like to talk to him, but he's out on med leave. He said at my initial visit that I most likely have some sort of kidney defect and I've never properly absorbed calcium.
Avatar m tn Hi All, I have been suffering form Hypertension for Past 3 months .I feel giddiness . I went to cardiologist and When I was diagnosed , I had BP around 160/110 and Pulse rate 93 BPM. I took ECG and reading was normal. I gave all the blood test which Includes Kidney profile, Glucose & LDL & HDL. Everything is normal. My doctor prescribed me telmisartan 40 Mg . I took that for one month and later revisited same doctor. Pressure was around 150/100 again.
Avatar f tn Its cute, looks like he is winding up getting ready for take off! I think that dealing with this kidney failure stuff is just so overwhelming. Your mind is spinning all the time, worrying constantly. Like I said, I know it didn't come on over night, but once it got bad, the symptoms came on hard and fast. I was getting up everyday scared at what the deal would hold. Checking on my dear dog wondering how much worse he was. Waking up everyday and seeing him deteriorate.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have kidney failure do to diabetes. What kinds of foods or supplements will help or hurt my kidneys? I've heard that co q10 is benefical. Any help would be beneficial!
Avatar n tn I have had 5 kidney infections and a kidney stone in the past 6 months. My doctors say is is caused by a fistula (the disease makes itself a tunnel from pointA to pont B) that dumps bacteria from the bowell to the kidneys, this may be something uoi need to check on....
Avatar n tn Hi, this could be muscular pain, kidney stone, colitis, etc. To rule out kidney issues get urine routine microscopy done along with ultrasound. Usually in case of stones, urine shows infection and cast or red blood cells. Try plenty of fluids and topical application of counterirritants for 3 days, if no relief is observed, do consult doctor and get investigations done.
