Why the patient who is suffering from kidney failure has a high temperature &does not show it?

Kidney failure: I am not quite sure what you mean by "does not show it." are you asking why a person with kidney failure doesn't have a fever? Or they have a fever but they look fine? Kidney failure by itself doesn't necessarily cause a fever. Infections are usually the cause of fever. So a person with kidney failure may look fairly normal.

Kidney (Definition)

The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

Why are people say lispronil high blood medication is giving them kidney failure like I'm so scared to even take this medication.

Why are people say lispronil high blood medication is giving them kidney failure like I'm so scared to even take this medication.

No flawless meds: During & after development of any approved med, they collect/monitor reported adverse symptoms or events experienced during use. When /if these are not rare, the med is pulled off the market. Since everyone is unique, there is always be a possibility that someone can develop an issue with a given med. Regular checkups/labs help monitor it. I have no concerns about this med and have been on it for years.

Lisonopril and spiranolactone dosage too high, caused acute kidney failure. Stop meds, got better. Creatinine levels fall monthly, now 1.6 is that ok?

Lisonopril and spiranolactone dosage too high, caused acute kidney failure. Stop meds, got better. Creatinine levels fall monthly, now 1.6 is that ok?

Kidney failure: Did your doctor tell you why you had acute kidney failure (akf) on Lisinopril (l) and spiranolactone (s)? L causes akf, which is reversible, when l's stopped in cases of a renal artery stenosis. Pt's recover their original kidney function. Your creatinine (c) level of 1.6 may be abnormal if your c was 1.2 before the akf. You are 51 years old with CHF and chronic kidney disease, your c wont' be 1.

Worked decades in chemical industry. Do I have a high risk of cancer or kidney failure?

Worked decades in chemical industry. Do I have a high risk of cancer or kidney failure?

It depends: Working in the dye industry/with napthylenes, Cyclophosphamide exposure is a clear risk factor for bladder cancer. If you are/were a smoker you have more risk of renal cancer, and working in the dye industry wouldn't help. Smoking increases risk for many cancers, including lung. It would be best to see your doctor, and let him know so he can tell you exactly what you are at risk for.

Possible...: All life events are a one-way street of accumulation, modification, and continuation from inception to eternity. So. good/adequate personal & professional care can modify the existing conditions so to slow down the pace of worsening, which may highly vary. Nonetheless, move on to do those within our control and avoid wasting time & energy to think and worry about those beyond our control. Best. ..

Husbands crp protein result is 96. has mild cirrhosis and acute kidney failure. Why is it so high? Dangerous? What does it mean?

Inflammation: CRP and ESR are both non specific biomarkers for inflammation or acute infection. In itself, neither is harmful, but help to monitor response to treatment or identify a problem. ESR and CRP should be interpreted differently: CRP is more sensitive of the acute phase of inflammation than the ESR. Finding the cause and treatment is key. I wish him well.

My bun was a 10 and my creatine was 0.8. Could I still have kidney failure or would those levels have to be high? I have protein in urine regularly!

My bun was a 10 and my creatine was 0.8. Could I still have kidney failure or would those levels have to be high? I have protein in urine regularly!

Not Likely: Those are healthy kidney numbers. However, you can have other causes of proteinuria or renal insufficiency and should follow up with a nephrologist or your regular doctor.

What best for lunch and dinner for kidney failure patient with high blood pressure and diabetics?

What best for lunch and dinner for kidney failure patient with high blood pressure and diabetics?

DASH: The dash diet was recently selected by leading nutritionists, endocrinologists, and internists as the best diabetic diet. http://dashdiet. Org/ has more information (i have no affiliation with these folks). Weight watchers was selected as being easiest to follow, if that is more of a problem for you. Good luck, and stick with it!

My dad has kidney failure, but also has really high pth and a high IGA. Would this be enough to get a prescription for plasma exchange/which dr?

My dad has kidney failure, but also has really high pth and a high IGA. Would this be enough to get a prescription for plasma exchange/which dr?

Kidney failure: It is up to the doctor to decide what treatment is necessary when there is high PTH and high IGA. Please have a discussion with your dad's doctor and begin to understand what might or might not be necessary. My sense is that dad will have different treatment. Please let me know how it goes.

Husb micoalbumin is 596. BUN/Creatinine level is normal. Serum Albumin norm. He's diabetic & has fatty liver. Is he in kidney failure? Why micro high?

Husb micoalbumin is 596. BUN/Creatinine level is normal. Serum Albumin norm. He's diabetic & has fatty liver. Is he in kidney failure? Why micro high?

Diabetic nephropathy: B"sd kidney failure is marked by elevation of creatinine. Microalbumin is a sensitive test for early kidney changes seen in diabetes and hypertension. Unless very high, standard albumin will be normal. Fatty liver is of concern but not directly related. To prevent progression of kidney disease 1. control of diabetes 2. blood pressure control 3. ACE or ARB agent. Glad to discuss

CR 1.2 High WBC 11.3 High GFR 48. Low These are my latest and I am worried or should worry about Kidney failure since I have Lupus and Parkinson's?

CR 1.2 High WBC 11.3 High GFR 48. Low These are my latest and I am worried or should worry about Kidney failure since I have Lupus and Parkinson's?

Not yet: You have bit elevated creatinine, bit slow GFR, high WBCs could be secondary to drugs, steroids or NSAIDs, keep a close follow up with your doctor, ? will need nephrologist evaluation, revise the drugs you are on, their interactions and effects on kidneys, doctors usually try to balance risk/benefit ratio in chronic diseases, you might need more tests like p/c ratio in urine and/or imaging studies

Can taking creatine can cause kidney failure, high blood pressure, and muscle cramps?

Can taking creatine can cause kidney failure, high blood pressure, and muscle cramps?

Yes: Creatine can be an effective part of an aggressive strength training program, but you have to use it carefully. You don't simply take it and wait to get stronger, you have to put in the extra work that it allows you to do. The biggest mistake people make with creatine is to not hydrate properly and when they don't - cramps and kidney failure can occur.

High risk pregnancy, induced, lost 1/2 blood, acute kidney failure blood pressure 50/30, blood tranfusions. Am I crazy to want another child after above?

High risk pregnancy, induced, lost 1/2 blood, acute kidney failure blood pressure 50/30, blood tranfusions. Am I crazy to want another child after above?

Depends: I am a kidney doctor. Seems like your kidney failure was because of BP of 50/30 which was a result of severe blood loss. Please check with your obstetrician about cause of bleeding first time. Also, you may want to know whether your kidney function resolved completely last time after failure or not. If it did not then your kidneys may be at risk of worsening function with future pregnancies.
