Got the results of a blood test. Low sodium and creatinine..I'm on lisinipril and hctz. Could that have caused it? Also have pain under low-right ribs

Too much alcohol: The combination of lisinopril, HCTZ, 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.

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
