Pancreatitis in renal transplant patients

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis in renal transplant patients


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.
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 m tn 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. The confusion is less likely when there is a history of recent trauma. As with any cause of ascites, paracentesis is mandatory.
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.
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.
Avatar n tn 177 Autoimmune Disorders 178 Development or exacerbation of autoimmune disorders including myositis, 179 hepatitis ITP, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial nephritis, thyroiditis, 6 180 and systemic lupus erythematosus have been reported in patients receiving 181 alpha interferon. PEGASYS should be used with caution in patients with 182 autoimmune disorders.
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.
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 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.
Avatar f tn I had been having upper right quadrant pain, belching, and gas for some time when in July my Doctor suggested Gallbladder Surgery even after all the usual test were normal, they did boold, urine, upper GI, CTSCAN which showed sludge, The radioloigist told me it wasn't uncommon for people to have sludge and then to be gone at a later time, often seen in patients that have been lying around in the hospital for an extended period.
Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
Avatar m tn As you may recall I wrecked my bike in 2005 and, for some reason, while I was hospitalized the transplant team increased my immunosuppressive dose by 50%. It's been backed down a lot since then but I was on an increased dose for 8 months and I am still SVR as of last month and I do take immunosuppressive drugs. So what do you make of that?
Avatar n tn 870-80. 3. Capuron L et al. Basal ganglia hypermetabolism and symptoms of fatigue during interferon-alpha therapy. Neuropsychopharmacology. 2007 Nov;32(11):2384-92. To resume these 3 papers, it seems that treatment wth IFN (plus ribavirine) for hepC was associated with significant flattening of the diurnal ACTH and cortisol slope and increased evening plasma ACTH and cortisol concentrations. This disbalance in cortisol daily cycle can be the cause of depression and fatigue.
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.
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 Not sure whether I should try it again as iron supplements are supposedly relatively toxic to Thalassemia patients with iron building up easily in the body. I really hope doctors would give more research into BTM as it has substantial symptoms. I'm still in search of some medication or diet that would alleviate tiredness/fatigue, and of course for BTM in general. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Furthermore she did not feel that her authority or ego was threatened at all by patients' questions. In fact she almost felt disappointed, she said, when she tried to explain more to her patients about their livers and the reasons for their treatments most often the patients did not seem to want to know. I presented the 3 options: Baraclude+Tenofovir, Baraclude 1mg, and biopsy exam, if no inflammation and cirrhosis, then no treatment just monitor.
