Question: Not sure I want to ask a Dr. named Grief a question!!!! Just kidding of course! I used to go to a Dr. named Savage until he passed away!
My question is, I believe I've heard something bad about taking Zyrtec from FDA. Just wondering if that is true? I've read on cautions- don't take isif you have kidney or liver issues. I don't have any that I aware of currently but I am diabetic and have high blood pressure so my kidneys are at more risk than XXXXXXX l so should I take Zyrtec?

Brief answer...given below
Detailed answer.....
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query well and understood your concern.
There is absolutely no problem in taking ZYRTEC by any person having diabetes and high blood pressure.
In fact this warning means that any person suffering from advanced kidney disease should not take any medicine of his own and must talk to his doctor before taking it.
You can safely consume ZYRTEC.Even if some person is having some mild or early kidney problem,he can take ZYRTEC safely.
The most common drugs which are avoided in kidney problems are pain killers,herbal medicines and nephrotoxic antibiotics.
I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal.
