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. A n can also help with your uric acid problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a kidney ok in creatinine and no protein in uric fail to flush uric acid? Is this treatable? Already consuming low purine diet but still 7.8.
See below: It would require an in-person evaluation to determine the need, if any, for treating your elevated uric acid level. Please consult these links for information and discuss the matter with your doctor. http://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/high-uric-acid-level/basics/definition/sym-20050607 http://www.rheumatology.org/Portals/0/Files/ACR%20Guidelines%20for%20Management%20of%20Gout_Part%201.pdf ...Read more
Q1: Does weight lifting and heavy training help in reducing uric acid?
Q2: Is there a correlation between overactive-bladder and high uric acid?
Is it true that elevated uric acid and gout can raise creatinine level? My nephro doctor told me so.
Yes: This happens when crystals of uric acid form in the kidney parenchyma -- "urate ephropathy". There is a severe acute form that is unmistakable; there's disagreement as to whether mild elevations of uric acid do this -- i'm a pathologist interested in kidney and haven't seen anatomic evidence that it's so. Consider adding a uric-acid lowering agent if you have clinical gout. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You should not be: mixing any creatine products. Main reason is because each creatine product have its own chemical formula, and mixing them may reduce their absorption rate in your digestive system. Take them separately, or better yet sick with 1 formulation that works for you after you have experimented. Good luck and thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
Maybe: To grow muscle mass you need adequate total balanced calories to maintain and promote growth. Protein is critical for muscle cell growth so you need on average 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight daily. Creatine may help a little with energy but mostly in people with medic al problems like parkinson's disease. Healthy people do not need creatine. ...Read more
Does artificial protein and glutamine damage kidneys? Protein 20-40g, glutamine 5-10g. This is taken mostly on workout days.
No: As a general rule that amount of protein and glutamine can be taken and absorbed without any side effects. That is based on normal kidney/metabolic function. Your body can handle even a larger amount of protein under ideal conditions. Remember to always hydrate well especially on workout days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not the key: For uric acid stones, you will want to look at ways of managing uric acid production, perhaps with medication. For both stone types, keeping the urine dilute is more important than trying to adjust the pH. Acid urine promotes uric acid stones while alkaline urine promotes calcium oxalate stones. Don't make this your focus. ...Read more
Complex: I'm not sure if you have a primary liver or kidney disease (or both). Creatinine elevation is unlikely the cause of liver dysfunction, unless medications are having a prolonged effect on the liver from kidney dysfunction. The high potassium points to a kidney source of the problem. See your internist. ...Read more

They do work.: Actually, protein, amino acids (particularly the BCAAs) and creatine will actually help - there is literature to support their benefit. Make sure you drink plenty of water while increasing your intake of proteins and adding creatine. For creatine, no more than 5g daily (can get benefit with as little as 1g daily). For protein, don’t need much more than 1g per kilogram body weight per day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im on high BP medication, can I consume 5grms creatine for muscle building, i'm very much inclined towards building muscle with creatine.?
Not a good idea: Creatine is a muscle component but can be hard on the kidneys, increasing the work of blood filtration. Typically we'll see the side effects of this in elevation of kidney monitoring tests. Work closely with a doctor's supervision and get blood tests. Follow BP closely, and should probably limit use to no more than 1-2 months a year. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have low vitamin d, low alkaline phosphatase, high uric acid and high triglycerides. Is there something that links all of these together?
There is some: relationship between low vitamin D and alkaline phosphatase as both influence bone metabolism. But typically dysfunctional bone turnover raises alkaline phosphatase; a low value suggests some impairment of the gall bladder/bile duct/liver system. High uric acid is often genetic, but can be dietary: seafood (scallops/sardines), liver, red meat. Beer/sugary drinks raise uric acid and triglycerides! ...Read more
I have a maintenance of METOPROLOL, CLONAZEPAM, POTASSIUM CHLORIDE, and SILYMARIN. Are these nephrotoxic? Will these damage my kidneys?
There are always: individual differences, particularly in herbal medications, but none of these medications or herbs are known to be particularly toxic to kidneys. Potassum chloride is usually not necessary unless you are on a diuretic. If your blood tests show a low potassium level, your doctor should be looking for a cause and doing additional tests and not just giving you potassium. I ...Read more
