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

Void before going to bed; if the first-voided morning specimen is protein-free, perhaps you are just one of those folks who lose a little protein from standing up. In the absence of diabetes or renal dysfunction, microalbuminuria may not be a cause for concern. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
