The commonest cause of kidney disease leading to dialysis is diabetes. Hypertension is a close number two. If you have either of these, it is important to have your kidney function checked yearly at the least. Certain drugs like NSAIDs-(ibuprofen family) can lead to kidney disease when used frequently over a long period. There many other causes but the these 3 are the ones you can do most about.

How do I know exactly what will biotin do for my hair, skin and nails?

Necessary!

Skin_problems
It promotes skin and hair health. One of the first things you will see is vanishing hangnails, if you have them. It promotes hair health and shine. It will not grow hair if your follicles are gone (shoot!), but it also helps dry skin!

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

can hair,skin&nails caplets which includes biotin be used with salmon oil capsules?

Should be OK

Open-uri20121022-20835-1bfz5kb
Fortunately consumption of fish does not prevent absorption of other nutrients/medicines etc...and salmon oil capsule is also considered safe for use with other medicines. Anyhow, just remember, these are supplements. They should not replace your well balanced/healthy diet and regular exercises. If you eat well--see pyramid, U should not need much supplements. Consult doc/nutritionist. Good luck

is it safe to take a hair, skin, and nails (Contains Biotin and Vitamin C) pill, while I am taking doxycycline 100mg for my acne?

Should be OK...

Open-uri20120927-484-1y8u9jx
Fortunately doxycycline does not have too many drug interactions and should not interfere or be significantly affected by your use of the supplement described in your question. But like all else, unexpected reaction can occur and so if you experience any significant symptoms, consult doc. Good luck

Can I take Biotin 1000mcg twice a dayExtra Folic acid 400mcg twice a daySpring Valley hair,skin,& nails vitamins 3 times a daywhile pregnant?

Depends

Vitamins_and_supplements
Stay away from folic acid. Use metafolin instead, and 400-800 mcg once a day is enough. I usually do not recommend that much biotin unless there is a reason. Do not overdose on vitamins.

I started taking fish oil, biotin for skin/hair&nails, a women's daily vitamin, and birth control pills and now I'm breaking outreally bad. Why? Is this forever?

The pill or oil

Testosterone
Either the fish oil or the pill could be contributing to your break outs. The pill changes your natural hormone balance so that you may become more testosterone dominant. and some people react to omegas plus hormones by breaking out. I would not stop the omegas altogether but try changing your dose. Or adding lecithin to help your body absorb it.
