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. 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

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

Lisinopril --- ?Can it elevate creatinine levels?

Lisinopril --- ?Can it elevate creatinine levels?

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

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

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

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 a n for more answers. ...Read more
