continue drugs. consult nephrologist
Thanks for using Health care magic.
I went through your query and understood your concerns.
Regarding medications torasemide is a diuretic which improves renal function and you need to continue this. Lisinopril
should be continued but need to monitor potassium levels regularly. Amiodarone
has been put for cardiac arrhythmia
, and the dose should be reduced from initial 400-600mg to 100 - 200 mg per day after few weeks.
Keep checking for complete blood count
, serum creatinine
levels, lipid profile
and potassium levels. You need to continue all the drugs you are on.
Before you start any dietary modifications or treatment , it is important that we confirm the diagnosis. You need to get Renal Function Tests, Electrolytes and Ultrasound to look for any changes of Chronic Kidney Disease
.So i would advice that you see your nephrologist first, who can do a detailed evaluation. Meanwhile kindly watch your urine output. Watch for uremic symptoms like nausea, vomiting etc. Try avoiding Potassium rich foods like Citrus fruits etc.
In case you are having decreased urine output, you might need sodium and water restriction to avoid volume overload. Daily mild exercises, walking will help you.
Hope this information answered your concern and is helpful to you.Feel free to ask ask for any query. I will be glad to answer them.
Wish you faster recovery and good health.
