Dear friend, You seem to be having Hypothyroidism.High TSH , High Cholesterol and high BP are indicating towards that . However 3+albumin and other findings point to renal involvement also . I suggest consult Endocrinologist for appropriate advice.

hi sayed,
reduce alcohol, smoking first.microalbumin present in kidney damage. the couse may be high blood pressure. so control your bloodpressure. In primary stage this disease can be easily controlable. Consult your docter for this . Do primary measures for bp control is do pranayam, yoga. Your cholesterol level is also high so reduce oily foods, nonveg. Consult nephrologist and do accordingly. After that you can take support of ayurveda, which will work me on-

My friend has full body edema and is seeing a liver specialist next week which may result in a liver biopsy. She saw her dr last week and is awaiting test results. She did have and CT scan with contrast media on Thursday 8/31. No results given yet. Today, she tells me that her legs are now red like a sunburn. Hot legs last night uncomfortable with blankets on legs, not hot to touch today. I am wondering if this may be cellulitis and if she should be seen in the ER today or wait to see if the redness creaps up her legs and then take her in???

I suffer from severe edema, fluid in lungs and around heart impairing my respiration heart also. Can someone explain to me, when a victim undergoes diuresis by drugs or ultrafiltration, exactly HOW DOES the water trapped within the limbs, tissues, etc, which traversed the veins capillaries in the first place - since the diuretics remove water content from the bloodstream, then HOW DOES the edema throughout the body go away, even if temporarily? doesn t it need to re-enter the bloodstream where it came out from? and how long for this to happen?? I know the diuretics and ultrafiltration have not a DIRECT effect to drain water from fatty tissues in my thighs, etc. I have painful pitting edema, legs bursting with water pressure internally. I don t respond to diuretic drugs I will not enter hospital. I am uninsured, and have no one to take me in if I lose my finances. I am unemployed cannot quality for ANY govt $$$ since I have funds of my own. Kindly reveal to me. clcalifo- thanks for kind suggestions about water w/lemon added. I will try it. MDs told me that this will be a sickness to the death. No matter how much water I remove, my defective heart will daily make more edema. I fear I may never catch Up - hospitals in NYC will not lower prices for me - cost is $5000 per day!!! this would leave me bankrupt. My landlord will evict me 1-2-3 into the street for non-payment of rent. This isNYC. Hospitals will sue me in court to pay their bills. They have frozen my bank accts before. NO thanks~!!! I pray that Jesus will let me die peacefully at home from the CHF -as I can t live with this pain in my limbs anymore. It happened from a HUGE heart attack. It s an illness which lead to death ,anyway. At 57 - I am an invalid, walking is so painful, my legs cant bend at all,my breath is gasping. So Ipray beg jesus christ to heal me or TAKE me Please pray for me. Thanks sonofsta- tell me - a peprson with CHF like me or your brother - how does the end happen? does their heart stop, or lungs choke up? I wonder what to expect. for me- the diuretics NEVER DID work - From my right leg there flows a steady stream of cold water day night -it burst thru the skin and spills constantly.I wear incontinence pads to catch this drip. Were your brother father able to walk freely go in and out where they wished ? And how DID hospitals drain their fluids??? Thru drugs?? I wonder how they coped on a daily basis. There is NO CURE for this illness. It can only end in one way. Please pray for me - I want Jesus to take me soon rather than live as an invalid.

I am a 47 year old diabetic lady, who had a Gastric Band fitted three years ago, and lost 6 stones. Before having this procedure, I had slightly raised cholesterol, but not high enough for medication. Over the last three years my Total Cholesterol level has gradually increased from 5.4 to now 7.1 My Bad cholestrol is very high, but my good cholesterol is VERY good, I don t have the exact figures. My Dr put me on Simvastatin approx three years ago. I took them willingly, and carried on my life as best I could, not realising how tiered and exhausted they made me feel with lots of aches and pains, I thought my problems where early menopause. Anyway last year after much research on the internet, I discovered that statins could give bad side affect in concentration and tiredness and muscle weakness, so I decided to address this with my Dr. Who instead of listening, gave me another tablet to take on top of the statins, because my cholesterol had started to rise again. (Sorry don t have the name of this one) I took these for a month, and they made me almost incapable of getting out of bed, the tiredness was so debilitating. I decided to stop taking them, and the Simvastatins. So I gradually weaned myself off of the drugs. I had decided not to tell the Dr, so I did it on my own. Anyway, when I went back to the Dr about something else a few months later, I told them what I had done, they strongly advised me to take another type of Statin. This time Atrovastatin 10mg was to be taken. I said I would but if they made me feel bad, I would stop them straight away. I took them for 10 days and started to get all the same side effects so just stopped, and the Dr could not persuade me to re take them. Then this year I have had a cholesterol test, and I am now showing a total of 7.1 When they told me how high it was, I said I didn’t care, because Id rather die tomorrow, than spend any more time taking these drugs. Anyhow they persuaded me to have one more try, and have given me Fluvastatin 20mg. That was nearly a month ago, and I haven’t talked myself into starting to take them yet, but would just like some general advice about High Cholesterol. Does high cholesterol mean that I’m going to have a heart attack or does it just mean I might? I do have heart problems in my family, my mother died at 48 of a massive stroke, but she was very over weight, and my father has just been prescribed Simvastins, for his high cholesterol, and he like me now, is a very slight man, he is 74 years old, and has developed Altzimers. He has also started to complain about tiredness and weakness ( possibly the same side effects as me). He does not eat a lot of high fat foods, and often forgetting to eat at all unless it is put infront of him. Can cholesterol really be inherited? What can I do? I live in the Mediterranean most of the time, so I feel my life style is very healthy. I eat plenty of fruit and veg, I drink moderately and do not smoke. We cant get takeaway food here, so nearly everything is prepared from scratch. My only vice is butter, and that is only when I m worrying about all this. Is there any alternatives to Statins, I did read something about a dialysis machine for cholesterol? But that was a long time ago, and was in the early stage of development. Should I try these next ones, or just forget it and see what happens. I like my life now, When I was on the Simvastatins, I felt I had no life at all, almost like I was taking part in someone else s life, not quite mine. I don t want to go back to feeling like that. Please help....

i have routine blood work done yearly and last month my GFR came back 59, HCT 31, nml w/ cr 1.0. i have markers for sjogrens, not clinical diagnosis, chol 203, hdl 54, ldl 110 triglycerides 88 and BP is 110/70 s ballpark average, microprotein 44 in urine from 4 last sept. i have no other healthproblems. repeat GFR 58, HCT 37 bun/cr same, chol level same but CO2 20, and microprotein is down to 8 in urine (cut protein down to minimum..i was big protein eater). i am worried about GFR. only thing i can think of that could have caused this is taking ibuprofen/benadryl during a 3 week period when i broke my rib prior to having labs drawn..and i took the ibuprofen regularly. i drink lots of water always. also since feb, i have increased exercise phenomenally. is it possible to turn this GFR around? and how quick does kidney failure take? am i on a downward spiral? i have next appt w/ Primary doc in 1 month, am repeating labs til then. what can i do that i am not doing to retard/repair circumstances? is it permanent damage?..

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I'm a yoga teacher/massage therapist, age 35, 98 lbs. I often experience fast resting heart rate (up to 80 from a normal 72). I've been having faint chest pain of late. My cholesterol is 198, trig 77, HDL 79, LDL 104. Also I've had insomnia problems for many years now. Is it possible that I'm over excersizing and straining my heart?
thanks, worried
