Nephrology, what causes low sodium?

Nephrology, what causes low sodium?

Sometimes medications, or extreme drinking of water can lower sodium, too.

Please tell me if analgesic nephrology is reversible?

Please tell me if analgesic nephrology is reversible?

Analgesic nephropath: Hi dalton1, if you mean analgesic nephropathy then it depends on how damaged your kidneys were and whether you are still taking analgesic medications. Ibuprofen itself can cause kidney injury but when mixed with codeine, tylenol, (acetaminophen) aspirin, etc, you can have severe injury. If your kidneys are working fine and you no longer take analgesia, then there is a good chance no further injury will occur. ...Read more

3 y/o had VUR w/ scarring. Now VUR clear & kidneys measure 6.4cm. Refered to Nephrology. Can't get appt for couple months. What possible issues?

3 y/o had VUR w/ scarring. Now VUR clear & kidneys measure 6.4cm. Refered to Nephrology. Can't get appt for couple months. What possible issues?

This is just: "a thought" since the answer should come from your child's Pediatrician but I would guess the kidneys are a bit "small" for your baby's age and follow-up after the VUR with nephrology is a common. And nowadays "STANDARD OF CARE" No "emergency" (my opinion)

Hope this helps and good luck!

Do you treat cmc arthritis?

Do you treat cmc arthritis?

See details: This is one of the most difficult arthritic issues to effectively treat. Local injections can be tried but they will produce only short term relief in most cases. I would try a topical first such as voltaren (diclofenac) gel. Oral nsaids can also be tried. Splinting may help. Surgery has benefit for severe cases but it is not a joint replacement procedure. ...Read more

When I was in cmc hospital, vellore as ip., for 11 days in april, 2012, bone marrow was done platelet count was 6k now it is 25k let me know remedies.

Possible ITP: Sounds as if the platelets have been chronically low for over 18 months. If the bone marrow was normal then you may have itp an autoimmune mediated low platelet count.

Had a bone spur removed & joint fused in my hand a year ago and it still isn't pain free. Think it was a cmc joint. Is this normal to have pain still?

Had a bone spur removed & joint fused in my hand a year ago and it still isn't pain free. Think it was a cmc joint. Is this normal to have pain still?

See Hand surgeon: Considering your age, I am surprised that a cmc joint was fused unless you have had significant trauma or have some form of severe arthropathy. For ongoing pain, though, it would be best to see a hand surgeon, repeat x-rays, diagnose the problem and if indicated get some hand therapy to improve functionality of the hand. ...Read more
