Ihave chronic kidney disease. There are incredible contradictions in med research.My doctor gave me statins (10 mg) a day to contol high cholestrol (about 260 ish. ) I am CEO of the National Kidney Fdn. of Utah. What irony! He also gave me 1000 units of VIt D. I am 79 years old. He does not seem worried about the CKD and I have to practically beg for any thing for it.

Does Lasix detoxify the body ? I have CKD was stage 4 now stage 3...Belong to a gym 1 to 3 time a week or when possible. I take a lot of meds as told to by my nephrologist ? I also see a cardiologist and a General practitioner who all seem to communicate well with each other. I do have atrial fib...my heart ejection rate is 51%......I am a Medical Technologist and insist on seeing all of my test results. Which is OK with the Nephrologist and the GP reads all of the results to me when I see her. Just knowing and observing this helps me a lot. I feel that patient education is mandatory with CKD patients.
Brief Answer: Lasix only gets water out of the body. It doesn’t detoxify.

My wife's latest creatinine is 3.9 and a eGFR of 14. She is African-American. A month ago they were 2.06 & 28. The cardiologist who ran the tests said she would run another next week & then make a decision as to whether to recommend a nephrologist referral. I think we should be seeing one NOW. ALSO, what stage of CKD would you assess this to be, 4 or 5?
