Avatar n tn but he concerns me, he has giving me a refill perscription for antibiotics for the next time I get a bladder, kidney infection, sounds like he doesn't want to see me. Having almost lost my life once due to drs. giving me the run around, I am rather concerned. So...... I don't think I have left anything out this time.
Avatar m tn I woke in the am without the initial symptoms, but instead had a full body rash that was developing and extreme soreness on both sides of my lower back. (I had assumed kidney stones or issue, but the later blood work and urinalysis suggested not.) Went to the doc 2 days later as the rash covered nearly my whole body. The rash was so pronounced and severe looking (though minimal discomfort) that all of the physician attention was spent on it.

Avatar n tn He had a stomach virus and he was getting treatment and then it went to a bladder infection and from the bladder it turned into a kidney infection. He got got treatment and he got better. About 2 weeks later he is back in the hospital with the same problem and they cant figure out where the infection is coming from. I am very grateful to you for replying, Doctors in Trinidad aren't very liable.
Avatar n tn I am overweight, have hypothyroidism, and PCOS. I originally posted this in the kidney forum, as my family doctor felt I may have a kidney stone. However, I visited a urologist today who does not feel that I have a kidney stone and prescribed antibiotics for a possible urinary tract infection. However, I am still experiencing intermittent left side pain and have had three bowel movements today that were narrow and gray (almost colorless).
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
658828 tn?1225050195 To tell you a little about my medical history I was diagnosed with a chronic bladder condition called Interstitial Cystitis and my doctor thinks I most likely have IBS as well b/c of the bloating, problems with bowel movements being different etc. She tested my urine for a kidney infection b/c of the back pain but there was nothing indicative of an infection. I do not have any symptoms of kidney or liver problems (believe I have read about them!) No jaundice, edema, loss of appetite.
Avatar n tn If the pain is in the left lumbar region (see the quadrants of abdomen—a google image should get you this), then this could be due to stomach issues (like acidity), it may be due to pancreatitis, or spleen issues or kidney stones or kidney infection or due to urinary infection or colitis. An ultrasound of the abdomen followed by urine and stool examination may help clinch the diagnosis. You may need additional tests like CT scan of abdomen, serum amylase, lipase etc.
82861 tn?1333457511 Hale2uf - I'm posting your questions on a new thread so that it will hopefully get more notice and responses. The "Kidney Failure" thread was getting so long that new issues were overlooked. ********************************************************************* To: Aggieone and All, My baby girl Jetta was diagnosed with kidney failure 3 weeks ago. For 5 days she was on IV flushing; she kept pulling out her IV.
6839387 tn?1385681693 You mentioned that your dog was given antibiotics...do they think that perhaps the high blood values are due to an infection...and not kidney related...? You may want to have his blood values checked again, a week or two after the antibiotics are done, and you have been doing SubQ's. Long story short....you may be able to lower his blood values, and he may be able to live comfortably for months to a year or more. All dogs are different, and respond to treatment differently...so...
Avatar m tn Please get ultrasound done to rule out gall stones and pancreatitis. Also blood tests for hepatitis and pancreatitis should be undertaken. Try ciprofloxacin with metronidazole for colitis. Stool examination can rule out intestinal infection.
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
Avatar m tn However, there were no other issues with my bloods, i.e. no infection etc. No stones or inflammation of the gall bladder and no kidney stones. The doctors cannot determine the cause of the pancreatitis, which now occurs about once a week and is causing me to loose weight. I have had CT, MRI, EUS and ultrasound scans, all looks normal including the pancreas. By the way, I do not drink alcohol regularly or in large amounts. Can anyone help with any suggestions?
1916673 tn?1420236870 It's more than likely it will be a urinary tract infection, which is common with kidney disease, but your vet can confirm it. It needs treating. Antibiotics are not ideal in kidney disease, but needs must. Next, the red blood count is actually high, not low, according to my understanding. And this is very likely due to dehydration. This makes fluid therapy much more important. If I were you, I would ask about starting Sub-Q fluids at home.
2361255 tn?1339611918 As far as Meds for kidney disease goes,Dogs with kidney failure will end up getting ulcers, throughout their digestive tract, and because of the ulcers, the vet will prescribe anti ulcer medications, as well as anti nausea meds. Dogs with kidney disease will also experience a rise in their phosphorus levels, so typically a phosphate binder is given. And when the dog is not drinking, and not staying hydrated enough, then it is time to start administering Sub-Q fluids.
Avatar f tn It could be caused by kidney dysfunction or even extreme blood sugar problems. Often patients with chronic infections such as the type you suspect have a chronic form of hepatitis or even pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn White cell blood cell count is within normal limits, so it doesn't look like there's any infection present, which is good as this normally complicates things in kidney failure. The normal route to changing diet would be to go for low protein (high qwuality proteins) at this stage, but this can be a problem, because ordinarily you would want to increase the fat content to provide energy that protein would ordinarily give - but you can't do this due to the pancreatitis.
19691093 tn?1488197669 Dental disease is the most common cause of canine kidney failure. The infection and bacteria from bad gums and teeth over a prolonged time period goes down the gut and eventually to the kidneys. As the immune system becomes affected, the kidneys cannot cope with all this bacteria and start to shut down - and that starts a process that leads to chronic kidney disease.
Avatar f tn The vet said the SDMA test is supposed to be more sensitive and reveal kidney issues when as little as 25-40% of the kidney has been damaged, but that the elevated Bun/creatinine usually indicates that 70-80% of the kidney has been compromised? The FAQ from the idexx SDMA test even says that these types of incongruous results are unusual.
Avatar m tn Entry point for hepatitis C infection identified January 24, 2012 A molecule embedded in the membrane of human liver cells that aids in cholesterol absorption also allows the entry of hepatitis C virus, the first step in hepatitis C infection, according to research at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine.
Avatar f tn I have an ~18 year old terrier mix rescue dog who developed chronic kidney disease--stage 2, about 2 weeks after an episode of acute pancreatitis—now about 7 weeks ago. He had been on metacam for degenerative joint disease (elbow, spine, hips) for about 2 years, so we have been monitoring his blood work at least every 6 months. His creatinine had been creeping up slowly, but entered the abnormal zone at 1.

14146674 tn?1433801990 She was diagnosed last year after blood work was done when she wasn't feeling well (she had pancreatitis). Her numbers were stage one and we went ahead with dental work and removing five decaying teeth to lessen the risk of infection. Abby also had an extensive orthopedic device installed in her front right elbow to repair a fracture that occurred before I adopted her.
Avatar n tn Posted By HFHS M.D.-CK on April 15, 1999 at 16:44:11 Topic Area: Kidney/Urinary Stones I have no history of UTI. 6 mos. ago I had an ultrasound for possible pancreatitis, when the report showed 2 possible kidney stones. A subsequent IVP was performed and was normal. 3 days ago, I had lower abdominal cramps which went away. That night, I woke up with the same type of cramps, in my right flank.
1916673 tn?1420236870 They have also stopped the immunosuppressant drug as he now has a kidney infection and have changed the antibiotics he has been in order to treat this. His creatinine is back up to 700 and albumin was at 15 last night. They told me he is at risk for a blood clot anytime. We do have him on anticoagulants. He once again is on iv to try and bring the values down as they think they spiked as a result of the infection as they had come down last week.

I wouldn't say they were in my back, and they weren't stabbing pains, just awful cramps that came in waves.
Avatar f tn I am struggling with several issues associated with management of kidney disease in my 18 year old terrier mix rescue dog, who was diagnosed with stage 2 kidney disease 5 weeks ago, on the heels of an episode of acute pancreatitis. He had been on metacam for osteoarthritis (elbow, spine, hips) for about 2 years, so we have been monitoring his blood work at least every 6 months. His creatinine had been creeping up slowly, but entered the abnormal zone at 1.
Avatar f tn It could also be due to herniated disc causing pinched nerves. It could also be due to kidney infection or due to pancreatitis. It is difficult to say what is causing this on net. Please consult a doctor for further examination and confirmed diagnosis. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn Elevated lipase could be pancreatitis, kidney problems, gall bladder infection, and tumors of the pancreas, but these are usually painful. High glucose could be as simple as overeating. Kidney problems, different gland disorders. Elevated liver enzymes could refer to any one number of conditions, and does not necessarily indicate any specific disease. Ultrasound of your pancreas or gall bladder or a CT scan of your abdomen. Will single out what the problem is.
