Truvada and kidney disease

Common Questions and Answers about Truvada and kidney disease


Avatar f tn If so I would like to know how you are doing with it? and if it is helping your hepatitis b? I have stage 4 kidney disease. My hepitologist just prescribed this med. My labs were not good. He hopes to get the virus under control so I can possibly get a kidney transplant. This would be a kidney from a cadaver donator, someone who had hepatitis b. So I am about to begin my journey. I don't really understand the lab numbers, he said something about 151,000? I am a little confused.
Avatar m tn They include headache, nausea, vomiting, rash and loss of appetite. In some people, tenofovir can increase creatinine and transaminases. These are enzymes related to the kidneys and liver. High levels can indicate damage to these organs. Tenofovir can reduce bone mineral density (see fact sheet 557). Calcium or vitamin D supplements may be helpful. This is especially true for people with osteopenia or osteoporosis.
Avatar f tn Now question, they didn't run kidney function test. I keep reading the side effects on ENT and TDF, and it says about renal failure, and life threatening. She tells me my liver function looks fine. This doctor is incompetent and I don't want to make the wrong decision and regret later. But running out of time to start meds if needed.

Birnkrant said the steady rate of new infections showed that more options are needed to reduce transmission of the virus. "Truvada for pre-exposure prevention represents another effective evidence-based approach," she said. But the cost for prevention isn't trivial. The annual tab for Truvada ranges from about $11,000 to $14,000.
Avatar m tn here is my experience on my hepatitis b, i came to know about my infection through a routine hep b screen around teenager, i noticed this is the american way of diagnose and treatment, which often different than the rest of the world, where other are also looking at quantitative surface antigen, this video echoed how my experience went, monitored every 6 months for a decade, then at age 30, my viral sudden spike exponentially, that was around 2004 to 2005, the dr started panic, and started treat
Avatar m tn She said yes although the chance of catching it is slim she recommends taking PEP, so she has put me on Stocrin and Truvada for 4 weeks. She said the side effects may or may not be noticeable, for the benefit of anyone reading this I will post any effects that I notice, and also my result. It was a stupid thing to have unprotected sex that way, and I know it, like everyone that has been in this situation knows. DON'T DO IT!!! The stress is just too high, it is IN NO WAY WORTH IT!
Avatar f tn They sent me to and infectious control dr who just so happens to be the DR of the patient i was drawing. She put me on truvada and kaletra. Truvada once daily and kaletra 4 times a day. She also told me that his t cells have been 700, and that his viral load has been low since 2001. I keep telling myself that if it was a deep stick i would have had to feel it, and that it would still be sore even after. and still would have bleed even after washing hands. Maybe even the next day.
Avatar m tn Multiple articles linking Baraclude to Cancer, Tenofovir to kidney damage. And yet it is full steam ahead with these drugs. Might as well put us on Truvada, that is optimised to safety concerns in terms of dosing, and forget about resistance period. That is another issue that they were warning about these drugs. But I think we are heading this way to Truvada, for those that will fail or become drug resistant to all the drugs.
Avatar n tn aspx check this link in a few days and data of tdf+embricitabine (truvada) will be pubblished for people with liver transplant and kidney function impairment so you will see if truvada is controindicated in liver disease....
429155 tn?1205676864 I went to my GP complaning of no sense of smell, saw a surgeon and surgery was recomended, I was given a prescription for Prednisone, a steroid, this gave me some sense of smell, and here's the but, I had the operation and still could not smell, so more Prednisone, well the upshot is that the steroids have caused my Osteo-Necrosis, this is when the heads of the long bones die, so have now had core decompression on one hip and the other totally replaced. Oxycontin.
Avatar f tn you might use hbsag and see if it increases and start immediately if so (hbsag increases before hbvdna and all other tests) but you cannot be 100% sure you don't develop resistance
