In patients who do not want to undergo chronic dialysis, kidney transplantation can be considered. • The progression of nephropathy in patients can be significantly slowed by controlling high blood pressure, and by aggressively treating high blood sugar levels.
Avatar m tn Hepatitis C is the leading cause for liver transplantation in the U.S., but infected patients have problems after transplant because the virus attacks the new liver, Uprichard said. While current drugs are highly toxic and often cannot be tolerated by transplant patients taking immunosuppressant drugs, ezetimibe is quite safe and has been used long-term without harm by people to control their cholesterol, Uprichard said.
Avatar f tn 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 n tn He has ascites, portal hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease, adema and varices that were recently banded. Two weeks ago we found him in a coma with a blood sugar of 17. He bounced back. I finally talked him into living with me until our last doctors appointment when we were told he is doing great. He now moved back to his apartment. Can anyone please tell me with what he has going on if his time is limited? I am very concerned and frustrated.
Avatar m tn So it's not cancer that you have to be concern about with Hepsera. It's the low antiviral power / resistance profile / and potential to cause kidney problems. And re: the comment on cancer. High DNA is correlated to higher risk for liver cancer. That would be my primary concern. All meds are tested to see if it causes cancer, so far (to my knowledge) no antivirals are cautioned for any cancer risk. Re: the genotyping, yes it won't change treatment but the information can't hurt.
