A 49-year-old member asked:

Kidney tests: You can have a simple urine analysis at a lab which will show if you have any protein, blood or bacteria in it. Your urine should not have any of those things in it. A simple blood test will tell you what your blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and what your creatinine is. A nephrologist will be able to discuss them and their implications on your health with you. Good luck.

Hyponatremia: You need to have your physician (P) find out why you have hyponatremia (H). Some of its causes are salt losing disorders of the kidney, inappropriate ADH (vasopressin) secretion, Addison's disease, high glucose levels and diuretic abuse, amongst others. I would ask your P's advice before you take the drugs you mentioned. If you mistreat H, it will only get worse with potentially serious consequences. Good luck.

High calcium level: You need to have the physician who told you your calcium (C) was high to do some blood tests to find out why it is. There are no good reasons for your C to be elevated. Some of the causes are hyperparathyroidism, high levels of Vitamin D, hyperthyroidism, sarcoidosis and metastatic liver disease, as well as others. Have your doctor do a work of your high C levels to get an answer and a treatment.
