Can Lisinopril Effect Sodium Levels
Noticed the daily can of low sodium V-8 is spiked with potassium chloride. Since I’m on lisinopril, is this wise?
On levothyroxine sodium (100mcg) for thyroid & lisinopril/hydrochlorothiaz (20-25mg) for blood pressure. Opinion on nitric oxide supp?
Husband, 60, no symptoms but + ana,45 anti-dna ds, low platelets. Very Slightly elevated calcium & sodium. Takes lisinopril, undx sleepapnea, tired.
Got the results of a blood test. Low sodium and creatinine. I'm on lisinipril and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide). Could that have caused it? Also, have pain under low-right ribs
Too much alcohol: The combination of lisinopril, HCTZ, (hydrochlorothiazide) and 3 alcohol drinks a day can cause low sodium. That's too much alcohol — sorry. The pain under your right ribs may be originating in your liver or gall-bladder as both live there. That should be checked. Low creatinine (even below the lab reference) is not harmful and reflects your muscle mass and normal kidney function. (I presume you're pretty small). ...Read more
Lisinopirl and creat: A strong association exists between acute increases in serum creatinine (c) of up to 30% that stabilize within the first 2 months of acei (a) therapy and long-term preservation of renal function. This relationship holds for persons with creatinine values of greater than >1.4 mg/dl. A's should be stopped if the increase in c is > 30%. A's used in patients with a renal artery stenosis give higher c. ...Read more
My BP is 140 /90 i''ve been on lisinopril what will I do to further reduce it.Also, my sugary level is 4.5 and at times up to 5 etc what should I do?
BP of 140/90: Your blood pressure is not out of control. If you have diabetes, you need to see a doctor to be placed on agents to control it. You also need to see if you have protein in your urine, as diabetics are prone to have. If so, you may need more lisinopril, as it reduces proteinuria. Lose weight if you are obese and start to exercise more. See your doctor to discuss your case. Good luck. ...Read more

Will taking lisinopril damage my liver or kidneys. Lisinopril is for high blood press. My efgr levels are 99 which is a bit high. Thanks?
No: Lisinopril will protect kidney function over the long haul by decreasing the pressure in the filters of the kidneys and preventing pressure induced injury. The egfr is normal at your age and is not high. If it were high it would suggest hypertension in the kidney filters increasing the amount of creatinine cleared. Lisinopril like any drug can cause liver injury but this is a rare complication. ...Read more

Is it save to start my 13y/o type 1dm daughter on lisinopril for her proteinuria? She doesn't have htn or out of control glucose levels.I'm concerned
Kidney protection: Lisinopril is proven to slow the progression of diabetic nephropathy. Although nothing is perfect, it is a generally safe drug. You could ask to see a pediatric nephrologist, but this is probably a good decision. ...Read more
I had a blood test done it indicated high bun and creatine levels what causes this and what should I do my creatine readings were bun 14 creatine 1.5 and est creatine 46 what should I do I also have high blood pressure and im on noravas 10 mg lisinopril
High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24-hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein done. This will give you an acutal measure of your kidney function. If you have proteinuria (p), you will need to be started on either an ace-i or an arb to reduce your BP and p. You should also have a renal ultrasound done. You may need another agent to control your bp. See an n for more answers. ...Read more
I have htn. I am on hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) 25 once a day and lisinopril 20 bid. My creatinine level 8.9. Gfr is greater than 60. Bun is 13. Kidney failure?
Safe to use a lavendar epsom salt bath while on lisinopril. I've been taking it for 5 days and have bad back and leg cramps. Dr sd stop taking the rx?
Epsom salt: Unless you're drinking the epsom salt, i simply don't see how a bath (ie, topical) epsom salt could interact with Lisinopril which is in your blood stream. A nice, warm/hot bath should be a very good treatment for cramps and muscular pain and is a time honored rx (as in ancient greeks — used by hipprocates himself!). ...Read more

Can I take lisinopril, amlodipine, and furosemide for high creatinine and protein in urine, while i also have high uric acid levels?
Meds for proteinuria: Lisinopril (l) is an excellent drug for reducing proteinuria (p) and blood pressure control. With a high creatinine, you need to be under the care of a nephrologist (n) to make sure you can preserve your kidney function as long as possible. You also need to have a 24-hour urine collection to assess your kidney function and to see how much p you have. An n can also help with your uric acid problem. ...Read more

Hi. I just recently moved to California. I'm between insurances right now, and have ran out of Lisinopril. Wondering how to go about getting a refill.
I take lisinopril low-dos. I was 212 then got to 180. He checked then I was still a little high so I'm still on it.now I'm 155.should I get checked now?
BP and lisinopril: If your systolic BP is 155 mm Hg, it is still a bit high. You might want to ask your physician to increase your dose of lisinopril (L) to 40 mg/day. Higher does of L do not cause increased side effects and they also reduce BP and proteinuria, if you have it, better than low doses. At you age, you should a systolic BP ...Read more

check with your doc: You can just stop it — there's no rebound. Why are you stopping it? If you have high blood pressure, you may need a substitute. If you have congestive heart failure, it may get worse. If you're on a diuretic, you may develop low potassium. This should be done with your doctor's supervision. That's why it's a prescription medicine. ...Read more
Other problems?: Lisinopril itself is safe to use with exercise; however, the next question is why the Lisinopril was started. Exercise must be limited in a specific way for certain rhythm and heart disorders, so you should obtain clearance from your doctor or cardiologist before beginning an exercise plan. ...Read more
