Suggest remedy for kidney problem

I had a heat attack 6 months ago. My tropnin level is 26.8 microns/L is this high. I have an infarct as well. I also have COPD. After angioplasty my kidneys worsened and my gfr went from 58 to 48. Which is quite serious, as I had a reaction to dye. Is the damage permanent to kidneys and how large is infarct if troponin level is 26.8 microns/L.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Damage to kidneys after contrast dye used during angioplasty is only temporary. Your kidney function is expected to recover in 3 weeks time. Final infarct size does not depend on your Troponin level. It will be told to you by your cardiologist on followup echo scans of the heart based on heart pumping function ejection fraction.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My father in law is 76, recently had an MRI and they have detected dark shadows at the bottom of both his kidneys. His kidney function is only 50%, now they are suggesting some laproscopic procedure to remove parts of both kidneys. I am not sure what the procedure entails, I am more worried that he will end up having renal failure and have to go only dyalisis. He is currently not in any pain - shouldn t he just live with it instead of undergoing surgery?

I felt like I was going to faint yesterday, followed by rapid heart rate. The heart rate would not go down.



We went to the ER and the took blood sample and said my troponin was .05, took it again and it was .06. They kept me in the hospital overnight and did two more blood tests 6 hrs apart.



They said it had gone down, but I needed to see my regular doctor for a strees test.



Did I have damage to my heart, they said this morning that I didn't have a heart attack. I am confused about the Triponin levels and that they are released when you have damage to your heart?



Thanks......
