1801387 tn?1316252345 Hello everyone I'm David 24, was diagnosed at 22 after a stone 1cm ruptured and sent fragments into the left kidney causing a lot of damage. The stone after exploding was 6mm and required surgery (ureteroscopy) but this is how I was diagnosed never had a problem before then. Since then a lot has changed but this initial blast did damage to my kidney and I've slowly been losing kidney function. I have a friend who also has MSK and he had similar problems.
Avatar n tn Then you also need to investigate other causes of brain fog like liver dysfunction (get liver enzymes done—liver function test), kidney dysfunction (get kidney function test done), and anemia. Poor sleep pattern and sleep problems like sleep apnea too can cause brain fog. Sleep studies by sleep specialists can help diagnose this.Low Vit D or Vit B12 too could be the cause.
Avatar n tn [49] Metformin is recommended to be temporarily discontinued before any radiographic study involving iodinated contrast agents, (such as a contrast-enhanced CT scan or angiogram), as the contrast dye may temporarily impair kidney function, indirectly leading to lactic acidosis by causing retention of metformin in the body.[50][51] Metformin can be resumed after two days, assuming kidney function is normal.

Avatar n tn You can progress very rapidly to NO kidney function and be on dialysis and having to wait for a kidney transplant. And we all know how that one goes--there is a shortage of transplantable kidneys and they go to the people who have been on the list the longest. So get to a kidney doctor now!

Avatar f tn When Dad is in heart failure he needs additional dosages of diaretics. Too much diaretic can effect kidney function and too little will effect heart function. We did see a kidney specialist concerning this, and the primary care physician is in communication with him. Dad also has vascular dementia. I know how hard dealing with memory loss can be for both patient and family. I will keep you all in my prayers.
1204020 tn?1493698890 If you have a high BP then causes of high BP should be found out. Hyperthyroidism, renal artery stenosis (by dopplar studies or MRI), abnormal kidney function (by kidney function tests), hyper function of adrenals, Cushing’s syndrome, abnormal liver function, etc would have to be ruled out. A high BP itself can cause dizziness and nausea. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
Avatar m tn And the hormone may improve multiple sclerosis symptoms by suppressing the immune attack on nerve fibers. For most men, replacing testosterone improves sexual function both desire and erections but for others it often doesn’t help. Some of those who don’t respond may be suffering from atherosclerosis of the blood vessels that supply the penis and facilitate erection. Good, healthy nutritional practices and supplementation with aged garlic extract can reverse atherosclerosis.
Avatar m tn I started experiencing erection problems at the beginning of this year. Can get it up with constant stimulation but it shoots right back down when stimulation stops. I also lost morning wood. Prior to this, I was able to get rock hard. Doctor intially thought it was just a depression/anxiety problem, so I started getting talk therapy and started a med for depression. I got placed on a med that won't hinder erectile function.
Avatar m tn I have been to the urologist and he has tested me for diabetes and measured my sex hormone levels (testosterone and free testosterone, prolactin etc). All of these test have returned normal. I am also going to have a night time tumescence test done to rule out psychological causes. I am pretty sure it is not a psych problem as I do not get morning erections and cannot get erections when masturbating.
Avatar m tn BP can also go to higher side after a physical activity like climbing stairs, running etc and this comes back to normal after rest. It can also be to due to anxiety and stress. Hence careful tests like kidney function test, stress test or treadmill test, ECHO, EKG, BP monitoring, and complete hormonal profile needs to be done. I understand most of these test have been done.
Avatar m tn numbness in hands and feet, dizziness, pain in my right flank. Doctor ran tests to check liver and kidney function, and everything came back normal. Brain and spine MRIs also normal. The other problem I have experienced is total loss of libido and difficulty achieving erection. My doctor gave me testosterone shots, then sent me to an endocrinologist, who took me off the shots and ran tests after 60 days. Testosterone was normal (492) but FSH was low. I go back in 3 months.
