I have polycystic liver and kidney disease. Im51 an have bruses on my arms, thighs, an abdomen. Why?

Doctor will do tests: Bruises mean blood leaked out of vessels in the skin. The liver makes important blood-clotting factors, so liver disease can increase bleeding & bruising. Healthy kidneys are important in vitamin d and calcium metabolism, so kidneys play a role in blood clotting. A doctor must evaluate & do tests, because other serious problems cause bruising, such as low platelets, leukemias, drug effects, etc...

A derivative of thiamin (b1) is called benfotiamine and it has been reported that it prevents the complications of diabetes. You need large doses and you should ask your doc. If he is unaware of this important research it can be looked up on line.

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

Unsure: Most of the few available safety studies of creatine have been done on rat models, with very few good placebo-controlled human studies available. Having said that, I'm not aware of any definite liver or kidney safety concerns. Good luck.

How long can a person live with a diseases liver and kidney?

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.

Water soluble: EtOH is water soluble and out of your system in 24 hours. If you are a heavy drinker it can take months for your liver enzymes to normalize. It is long enough to give you a realistic picture of your actual health.

How long do results take for CBC test and liver and kidney and heart function test to come back?

Testing time: Time to do the tests is about an hour. However, when you take into account the time it takes the blood to get to the lab and the paper work associated with it, about 4 hours is a reasonable turn around time. How long it takes your doctor to inform you of the results is variable.

Daughter was hit by SUV at 40 mph had serious blunt force LIVER (and kidney lac., crushed orbital floorEtc...) LACERATION how long to completely heal?

Daughter was hit by SUV at 40 mph had serious blunt force LIVER (and kidney lac., crushed orbital floorEtc...) LACERATION how long to completely heal?

Serious trauma: Serious blunt force trauma can take a long time to heal completely. Assuming that she has no complications during her recovery, it may still take her months to recover, perhaps even longer if she has a brain injury, which you did not comment on. I'd ask her trauma surgeon for more details. A positive? She is only 16, and youth certainly makes healing go faster. Stay the course. She's alive!
