Colonoscopy next week. I was prescribed sodium phosphate. Safe to use when I have Iga-nephropathy (normal kidney function) and I am taking enalapril?

Phosphate laxative: Phosphate laxatives are generally not safe with any kidney disease, although your status of normal function is reassuring. Phosphate can surge in excess and crystallize in kidneys that are inflamed. Seek a different laxative. And, be sure you remain well hydrated as you prep for the colonoscopy. Dehydration is a major threat to your kidneys, too. ...Read more

Normal alkaline phosphate before pregnancy. Normal increase during. 230 at delivery, 142 4 weeks pp, 142 6 weeks pp. is it normal to still be high?

Normal findings: We usually don't check or follow alkaline phosphatase, so I would not be worried if you are otherwise a young and healthy female. In the postpartum period you can be low on estrogen, which can lead to bone resorption and turnover, which is reflected by an elevated alkaline phosphatase, which is also seen during pregnancy. Breastfeeding can also lead to an elevated value. It will normalize, no worry ...Read more

Is a salty taste in the mouth normal during pregnancy? What can be done to reduce the taste of salt in the mouth during pregnancy?

LessInThe2ndTrimeste: Pregnancy can be associated with "dysgeusia," the "bad taste problem," maybe caused by high estrogen levels.
It's more common than you might think and can result in no taste or an altered taste, like metallic or bitter or salty. It's said that adding sour will stimulate taste buds. So does MSG. Baking Soda mouthwash, brushing teeth and tongue and frequent rinsing with water will help somewhat. ...Read more
