vicodin

Avatar f tn Hi all. I have a question. Can chronic abuse of opiates cause congestive heart failure? Liver disease? Kidney disease. I'm an addict that is experiencing some very scary symptoms and I fear that all of my drug abuse is the cause of it. Is there something out there that I can read that describes all the bad stuff that opiates do to your body long term? TIA!
Avatar n tn My daughter is about 26 weeks along and has kidney stone. Her mid-wife prescribed vicodin but said not to take it everyday. Well, there is a small problem-her pain is extreme everyday. Can she take it once a day?
Avatar n tn The two things that pop into my head when an older animal starts to drink excessively and urinate in the house are kidney failure and diabetes, although there can be other reasons. A trip to the vet is definitely in order ASAP. If you catch it early, kidney failure is something that an animal can live comfortable with for quite a few years, so don't panic.
Avatar n tn I am frustrated that I have been going to these docs for years with no help and now I am looking at possible kidney failure. Are we going to wait until they completely shut down before someone actually does something? Seriously? Thinking of going to Mayo before its too late. I know technically my creatinine is not considered high yet but last year it was only 0.77. Too close for my comfort to keep waiting and doing nothing! Any advice?
82861 tn?1333453911 If there is no infection than your dog has kidney damage or kidney failure, and you will have to treat agressively to save the kidneys by using Sub Q fluid therapy, phosphate binders if the phosphate is also elevated, kidney saving herbs such as Rehmannia 8 and more. Please write back once you have additional test results. Thanks.
Avatar f tn ) After about 2 months, the right leg began to swell, also. Misdiagnosis of congestive heart failure, kidney failure, blood clot. Several blood and urine tests reveal no cause (CBC, HepC, complete thyroid panel, glucose, hormone, etc.). EKGS, xrays, ultrasound, CT scan reveal nothing. My left leg measures between 7 and 8 inches enlarged, right is between 5 and 6 inches, and an overall weight gain of about 20 pounds in the legs. Although it varies in size and shape, the swelling does not go away.
Avatar m tn Hi my dog is 3 year old took her vet cos she was sick it was green so they took a blood test and it came back of the scales the vet said its says high for the urea 46.4 and crea 749 and phos says 5.
Avatar f tn I lost my dog in August of 2006 from kidney failure. She was lethargic and had no appetite, so I took her to the vet. He thought she could recover with iv fluids, etc. and so she spent 4 days at the vet clinic. She didn't like other dogs or the vet, so I still feel bad that this is where she spent the last few days of her life. In the end they couldn't do anything for her so I had her put to sleep. It was a very difficult thing. I found the following website very useful.

Avatar f tn My 6 year 10 month Russian Blue male cat was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with kidney failure. His only symptons were a bout of vomiting and lethargy. His blood work was quite elevated, BUN 83mg/dl, CREA 5.1mg/dl, PHOS 8.8mg/dl. He has been given fluids twice and we have been giving him Azodyl capsules twice a day. Also sprinkling Epikatin on his food twice a day. We have been trying to transition him to renal diet with not a lot of success.
654298 tn?1230403407 Who also had both kidneys removed and had his father donate a kidney. Both of their parents are strong and healthy people my parents are strong and healthy. I wish I could post the medical name for their particular disease but I cant remember off the top of my head. I can find out tonight but I would love if someone let me know there thoughts.
Avatar m tn Renal anomalies could be responsible for decreased or deranged renal function and may lead to renal failure. One working kidney is enough for normal functions of the body. It would be difficult to comment if your other symptoms could be related. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating nephrologist. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Avatar m tn Samantha is a nearly 18 years old bichon fries and was diagnosed with kidney failure on Oct 2. She has good days and bad days. Sam has been on daily IV fluids since Oct. She takes zantac, vitamins, cranberry, denamarin and anti phosphorous medicine twice daily. She has lost considerable weight and lately has become disinterested in food. I am supplementing her kittle intake of food with nutrical. That's the bad news.
Avatar n tn My bichon has lost a lot of weight and now just lies in her bed although she is eating and drinking. Had her bloods done yesterday and vet said today she has very bad kidney failure. She is staying in vets overnight on iv drip. This ever happen to anyone and what was outcome?
Avatar m tn It HAS brought about good results in my own dog now, of course, she had very early-stage Chronic Kidney Failure (and not Acute Kidney Failure) so the circumstances are different, I realize. The canned version would be easy to let down with water, to make syringe-feeding easier. Depending on what you feel about what your current vet says to you about her condition (listen carefully, because he may be quite wise about her situation.....
Avatar f tn I looked up stage 3 kidney failure, and found the following. I hope you find it helpful somehow, and blessings for you and your dog - Blu Stage 3 kidney disease is one of the final stages of canine kidney disease, in which your dog will begin showing symptoms of kidney failure. Canine kidney disease occurs when, for whatever reason, your dog's kidneys are not doing their job of removing toxins from the blood efficiently.
