Hi Jennifer,

Sorry I can't help you on the meds, but wanted to say how happy I am that your GFR went up! Have they tried you at all on Lisinopril? It has helped my protein leaks go down.

No but my main concern is if the diovan is safe for me to take that it won't cause me any issues that's wat I'm asking

Hi, if you are concerned and I understand , double check with the doctor again. My numbers were off done wanted a scan of kidney. I am easily 95% vegetarian and dairy free...unless something slips in. So I had scan, kidney swollen, sent to surgeon...not sure by accident or what. Then kidney CAT skin. I have a 6mm stone in Ureter, coming out tomorrow. I am on cholesterol med which can have correlation. Called doctor, took myself off cholesterol. I do a lot of cardio everyday and weights. Just seeing where my bees go. My urologist absolutely dies not like statins for this reason. So I say be proactive until you get andwers

For cholesterol my Doctor put me on Zetia (generic now Ezetimibe) as is not a statin.

Thank you, I asked about that one, but it is mainly for high triglycerides. That hasn’t been a major issue because of the cardio and diet I do daily. My other numbers just don’t go along with what I am doing...once I get the baseline in 6 months I will have a better idea.
