Types Of Kidney Diseases
We Answered:The IV appaatus you saw sounds like dialysis, but I have never seen one like that so I'm not a hundred percent sure. As far as your patients bladder... it sounds like neurogenic bladder, which is basically when the bladder gets no innervation and so it has no muscle control. This can be caused by lots of things.
As far as kidney disease goes... you'll probably see a lot of diabetics (the eventually go into renal failure if diabetes is left untreated), people with transplants, polycistic kidney disease, reflux, SIADH, renal cancer (though they may be on oncology, pyelonephritis, glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, renal calculi (kidney stones), renal trauma, alport syndrome and many many more!
Lorraine Said:What is the most common type of kidney disease?
We Answered:Diabetes is the single leading cause of kidney failure in the United States, Hypertension also is a leading cause of kidney failure but may also be a symptom of another condition leading up to kidney failure. Glomerulonephritis is the third leading cause of end-stage kidney disease in the United States.
As much as 90 to 95 percent of kidney function can be lost before kidney failure becomes apparent. Symptoms include loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, extreme fatigue, difficulty sleeping, itching and dry skin, muscle cramps, and twitching. Left untreated, the build-up of waste products in the body can lead to coma, seizure, and death.
Tamara Said:Am I able to take adipex-p if I am diagnosed with a type of kidney disease?
We Answered:Here's the deal. There isn't necessarily an contraindication with Cellcept. However, adipex-p is known to increase blood pressure and shouldn't be taken by anyone with high blood pressure. Because you have Lupus Nephritis you are prone to high blood pressure due to your renal function. Has a doctor actually prescribed adipex-p to you? I would find it hard to believe that an MD who knows your Lupus Nephritis diagnosis would prescribe this medication for you. How overweight are you? What is your diet like? Do you exercise? These are all better options than taking a 'fat' pill. You need to be careful because taking these kinds of medications put stress on the body and we all know that stress causes Lupus flares. If I were you I would avoid this medication like the plague, but at the very least discuss it with your nephrologist and your rheumatologist prior to taking it.
