Pancreatitis in renal transplant

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis in renal transplant


Avatar f tn I have a nine year old lab "Sandy Grace". She is in fourth stage renal failure-Of course she has seen her regular vet for fluids-ultra sound revealed she has one kidney which is failing. Creatine was 13-subs at home-now using hollistic and homepatic treatment. Recently more bad days than good. I am giving her ice chips which seem to work better for her than lapping. Pedialyte ice is also better.
Avatar f tn Bile is produced in the liver and aids in digesting fats. Normally, it travels down the bile duct and some of it gets stored in the gallbladder to be ready to dispense in the sudden presence of a fatty meal. If too much bile gets dumped into the small intestine - as in people or dogs who have had their gallbladders removed - explosive diarrhea can result. Bile is also what gives feces its brown color. If a dog's stool is light tan, that means bile is not getting into the small intestine.
Avatar f tn many things could have caused it--renal dysfunction, infection, pancreatitis, hemolytic anemia, dehydration or cancer.
446474 tn?1446351282 There will only be 40 people world-wide (US, Europe and New Zealand) in this study you you have HVC, cirrhosis, HCC and awaiting transplant within the next 6 months this may be the best way to cure yourself of hepatitis C for good. Two oral drugs NO interferon. GS-7977 + Ribavirin. Currently recruiting.

Avatar f tn He likely contracted it from sharing needles as a teenager with his best friend, who also has Hep C now. He did drink moderately in his younger days, but hasn't had a drop in many years - it was never his vice. And the drug use dates back nearly 30 years, so that isn't an issue either. On top of the Hep C he has cirrhosis, bouts of pancreatitis, and poorly managed type 2 diabetes which causes a great deal of neuropathic pain. He frequently has to have esophageal varices banded as well.
Avatar m tn It can be due to traumatic rupture of pancreatic duct from recent abdominal trauma such as a car steering wheel injury, or more likely from chronic alcoholic pancreatitis.2 It has been described in approximately 4% of patients with chronic pancreatitis and in 6% to 14% of those with pancreatic pseudocysts.3 Many patients with alco-holic pancreatitis may not even have abdominal pain and therefore it might be confused with ascites from cirrhosis.
Avatar m tn We report the effectiveness and safety of ezetimibe among liver transplant recipients because this has been evaluated previously only in kidney and heart transplant patients. A consecutive cohort of 25 liver graft recipients with serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels > 100 mg/dL (2.5 mmol/L) after a mean (+/-standard deviation) of 55 +/- 21 months following liver transplantation received ezetimibe (10 mg orally every day) for at least 6 months.
Avatar f tn Took him to the Vet today to have him checked due to throwing up for about a week stright. I got the shock of my life when I was told he was in renal failure. His BUN was 135 and there were 2 other levels that were very high, but to be honest I stopped hearing after he said renal failure. My vet told me to push fluids through him tonight, and see if he urniates (which he did) and see if we can re-stimultie his kidneys.
Avatar n tn In order to prepare for such a situation a was first put on a transplant list in case the small case of liver failure happened. One on the first things the old-timers on this forum recommend to anyone is to find a knowledgeable and experienced specialist. "They do drop you like a hot potato and usually dismiss any conversation about ongoing side effects..." Sorry, but you have had bad doctors. "only a few people in the study DID NOT have side effects after stopping tx...
1840891 tn?1431551393 As always, it depends on how extensive your cirrhosis is and any bleeding and coagulation issues you have. Varices, low platelet count, INR (which measures vitamin k and other clotting factors). Remember the topical drug still has the warnings that apply to the oral form even though absorption in the blood supply is less. General warning for person with cirrhosis who take NSAIDs from the Mayo Clinic web site.
Avatar n tn Until the person reaches this point there are only educated guesses This is only reliable in the face of supportive care only. In other words no heroics. And an accurate assessment of level of consciousness may be skewed in the presence of drugs used to make the person comfortable. However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control.
Avatar f tn If gallstones block your bile ducts, you could get an infection in your pancreas (pancreatitis). THIS IS POTENTIALLY FATAL! The longer you wait to see a physician, the more serious this could be. Why are you worrying about surgery before you even know what the problem is? You can always refuse surgery, but you should get diagnosed and then explore your treatment options. Surgey could save your life. Laproscopic gall bladder removal is not that bad.
Avatar n tn ] Also my husband has had abnormal lymphnodes showing in renal and abdominal area but we did the lymphoma route with no bad results. question is : Is it strange that the doctor never told us what was on the biopsy except it's AIH. Is is posssible that he has Sclerosing cholangitis with an ALP of 1500 after the stent. He mentioned over-lap symdrone but when I asked if he had a billiary disease he said no its from the pancreatitis.
Avatar m tn The only scary aspect to occult HCV is that it implies that the virus can be alive and well in one organ (liver in this case), but not present in the blood. This presents a case for ongoing, compartmentalized infection, in rare cases of those that have cleared on their own, or in current days, may mean that a very small number of SVR's who have had successful treatment, may continue with ongoing liver infection, even though RNA negative on blood testing.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am 25 & am on Prednisone(60mg),salasapyrin(500mg)& Plaquenil(200mg) per day. I have developed a large moon shaped face. I am swollen in the face & neck & hate what it is doing to my face. Will this swelling & fluid go away when I come off the steroids in five weeks? It is causing me to be depressed & family have noticed the change in my face & are worried for my health.
Avatar f tn The significantly lower SVR rate in high HOMA-IR patients was observed in 76 patients with high HCV RNA levels (400,000IU/mL) who were defined as 'difficult-to-treat' patients. The mean HOMA-IR of 'difficult-to-treat' patients was significantly lower in 42 sustained responders than in 34 non-responders. CONCLUSIONS: IR was associated with SVR to (PEG-IFN)/ribavirin therapy for CHC, especially among 'difficult-to-treat' patients.
181575 tn?1250202386 Combination therapy (CT) using telbivudine plus lamivudine and monotherapy (MT) using telbivudine alone in a 2005 comparison of 104 patients did not show a difference in effectiveness. 5. Combination therapy (CT) using lamivudind plus adefovir and monotherapy (MT) using lamivudine alone in a 2003 comparison showed CT superiority: by week 52, CT group remained virally suppressed, HBV DNA levels increased in the MT group. 6.
385668 tn?1301797480 C's. Last year, severe abdominal pain (pancreatitis from my gallbladder) landed me in the hospital for 5 days, and that in itself was an experience, being on the other side of the IV it's no secret that docs, nurses, and other medical professionals can sometimes make the worst patients. I was determined not to be a pest....and the nurses were so thrilled with me...I even emptied and kept track of my own pee bucket.
Avatar n tn Would you have some testimonies, books or adresses to advice us in order to be updated in the comprehension of these sides effects and their potential treatments ? Any information will really be of great help, With my best regards.
Avatar n tn My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common. I'm still looking for ways to lessen the intensity of these symptoms, but for me I've found that maintaining physical activity helps, as well as not oversleeping, or overeating.
Avatar m tn You play such pillar roles in this forum that not only people like me who you address benefit from your expertise, sharing, and encouragement, but there must be hundreds even thousands who are silently benefiting. Thank you very much! 1. My doctor said for me e-antigen is negative. and e-antibody is positive. 2. As for combo treatment and genotyping, he requested me to see him to discuss them. 3. zellyf, we are similar in that we have children and spouse.
