It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
Kidney problems: Not usually. However gallbladder sludge can lead to pancreatitis which can cause acute kidney injury. Also cysts in the liver can also be associated with cysts in the kidneys, so if there is anything abnormal with the kidney function, an ultrasound of the kidneys may be helpful. ...Read more
Can gallbladder sludge and cyst on liver affect kidney because my lower back is hurting and starting to go towards front stomach?
Referred pain: Gallbladder pain often radiates to the back and sometimes into the shoulder blade area. This pain is likely from your gallbladder problems and not related to your kidneys at all. Have the gallbladder removed and this pain should go away. ...Read more

Systematic workup: Pain under left shoulder could come from several causes. Your doctor should take a detailed history and physical exam, then order appropriate tests. ...Read more
Had a CT enterography done to look for crohn's, and it showed subcentimeter lesions (likely cysts) on my liver and kidneys. Concerning that these didn't show on a CT scan I had done a year and a half ago? Or could they grow in that time?
Cysts: Possible they were not mentioned. You should ask your doctor to recheck the scan. Cysts of solid organs are not uncommon and usually benign. Following with an ultrasound in 6 months or so would be way to recheck. ...Read more
Cyst liver/kidney: No.Get a more detailed answer ›
Okay for most...: Liver cyst occurs in some 5% of general population and usually is inborn benign cyst less than 3 cm, which requires no active care, but a certain degree of clinical assessment with history and follow-up imaging studies like US or CT or MRI as clinically deemed necessary. The information on How to Handle Sickness in http://formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html would help understand what to do now & on ...Read more
Possible for very small benign liver and kidney cysts to have grown over the course of a year and a half??
Since you know you have them, I assume you have had an ultrasound or CT scan.
Yes they could have gotten bigger or even multiplied.
Repeat scanning is indicated for follow up.
Your primary care physician should be able to order an ultrasound unless you are seeing an Urologist for the renal cysts or Gastroenterologist for the liver cysts.
But YOU do need a follow up exam! ...Read more
Just found out I have 10 follicles on left and 15 on Rh ovaries + cysts...Can these be surgically removed? Family hist cysts on ovaries, kidney + liver
Read that most liver and kidney cysts appear in people over age 50, so why do I have them at age 35?? (found incidentally on CT scan)
Who knows?: These are one of the minor mysteries of medicine. When they occur together at a young age, I've thought perhaps it's a minor variant at the genetic locus for polycystic kidney disease (which often features liver cysts). It's not worth even thinking about. Older folks get more kidney cysts because of vascular changes (maybe) and mutations (maybe). Or it could be dumb luck. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
Ana320 homogeneous, sed rate 5, CRP 5, skin rash from sun, hx. 1996 of ana80, CMV igg58, EBV igg>90, liver and kidney cysts, mild splenomegaly?
No simple answer: A postive ANA is not a true marker of disease. Your photosensitivity may be a sign for Discoid lupus. I would suggest seeing a Rheumatologist fresh, and let them perform a full history and physical and not just test. The probability of a severe disease with normal ESR and CRP is lower. They are nonspecific but can be increased in most rheumatological disease. See a good MD, a full exam and history ...Read more
Survival depends: Survival from any disease is difficult to predict. Important factors include the disease, patient age, baseline health status, and quality of medical care. Some patients can live for many years with liver and kidney disease. However, chronic liver disease (cirrhosis) is terminal and will lead to death. Use internet to calculate meld score - the closer you get to score 40, the higher risk of death. ...Read more
Need>>supply: There are more people with the diseases that need organs than there are available organs. It is that simple. There are fewer "healthy" people dying now with working organs. Not every person or family is willing to donate organs after death either. ...Read more

Does xenical destroy liver and kidney? Or will it just destroy the kidney if you are overdosing yourself with this drug
Xenical: First, xenical can cause hepatitis and elevated liver enzymes, as well as liver failure and necrosis. I have not read of kidney destruction. Still, if tempted to overdose on it or anything else, please talk to your doctor, call 911, or go to an er for urgent help. Xenical can also cause you to lose fat-soluble vitamins such as vit. D -- which can exacerbate depression. ...Read more

Could you tell me what happens if a person forgets to take his medication after a liver and kidney transplant?
Rejection risk: Unless the txps came from an identical twin or clone, they are genetically different from you. Your immune system is tricked into ignoring their presence by meds prescribed to prevent rejection. Not taking a med, lets the drug level drop, and the portion of the immune response that should be blocked, to begin functioning. Take the missed dose as soon as possible. If it is mult. Doses, call your md. ...Read more
Magnesium creatine chelate how dangerous is it on liver and kidney on the long run? I'm taking 1000mg of it everyday before work out. Started 2days ago
Of course not: It tastes good, though. There are several sites promoting it as a 'miracle food' that are so silly that I think they must have been written as parodies or practical jokes. ('if we don't break down our water molecules to smaller sizes...') if you actually have some concerns about your liver and/or kidneys (perhaps some abnormal labs), your best guide is your physician. ...Read more
