    Re: Gave Up on Facebook Groups

    Kidney function can jump around quite a bit, be it a different lab, what you've eaten and most importantly how well hydrated you are.
    Your best route to keeping kidneys healthy is to be well...

    Re: Gave Up on Facebook Groups

    Hi Larry. Welcome to the forum.
    Glad your kidneys healed somewhat after a year of dialysis.
    I hope your function stays above 20%. I found that once my function dropped to 18% it was a steady and...

    Re: Suspected Sneaky Kidney Involvement

    Opioid based drugs are generally safe for kidneys, but doctors are now very cautious prescribing them due to misuse and addiction. I use them, but they become ineffective quickly with me, unless I...

    So sorry to hear you're so sick!
    Fortunately I'm only on a very low dose of prednisone at the moment, but I really struggle with higher doses. When your emotions get the better of you, remind...

    Re: Kidney Involvement

    Hi shankxonline ,

    I don't think Linda has posted anything in the last 3 years.

    I'd try not to worry about your kidney function too much. A sudden drop is preferable to slow chronic decline over...

    Re: Coronavirus and GPA

    So good to hear from you, Alysia.
    It's great news that you've had your vaccination and all seems to be getting well organised in Isreal. The figures I've seen show that just over 10% of Isreal's...
  9. Re: New User with no diagnosis. Looking for advice.

    Nasal biopsy is a good idea, but there's been quite a few people who have had false negatives. If your kidneys, or lungs are effected, then the biopsies from these tend to be more reliable.
    I would...

    Pete just read your earlier post about your fall. Hope you're doing well with pain and the kidneys cysts are just the "getting old" variety and nothing sinister.

    Wife made me breakfast in bed and brought my birthday cards and gifts to the bedroom for me to open.

    Thank you Alysia and Phil.

    Our town and neighbouring towns are some of the worse in the whole of the UK. We have extra restrictions where you can't even visit anyone even in their garden. Yet pubs...

    Long term steroid use...

    Blood results are back and although my ALT (Liver test) is still elevated, it's dropped a lot, so heading in right direct.
