Default follow up to Endo appt

As posted before I was referred to an endo specialist as my kidney function was failing. My function went from 60 to 35 to 22. I have had numerous tests and ultrasound. They feel the problem started from my HBP medication enalapril. When my BP was creeping up they doubled the dose.

I have been off the enalapril a couple of weeks now and my numbers have increased to 27. Wish is was higher but at least it is going in the right direction. It could take a couple of months or things could stay as they are.

I am feeling good and have no protein or albumin showing.

edited to add that enalapril is not a bad drug and can be used to protect the kidneys. Just in some cases can do the opposite.

I am so glad that my AIC has been steady around 5.4 as I don't know how this would have all turned out if I had not been in good control.

They are happy with my diet. Now I still have to figure how to get more fat and a little less protein into my meal plans.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Judy, thank you for the update!

I'm glad they found an external probable cause and you have seen improvement after a few weeks off the medicine! I am really glad your doctors are not in disagreement with LCHF.

I am hoping for continued improvement!
