Blood pressure meds?
I wrote here about 6 months ago...i was very anxious and scared , diagnosed with pkd accidently (no symptoms)... my father was a very complicated case , died 2 years ago in 3rd transplant surgery(!). He had very big kidneys and very high blood pressure from young age.
I feel better now mentally and Im optimistic.
I'm 28.5 recently did an mri , my right kidney looks better than the left one,much less cysts and smaller...both kidneys still within the normal size ranges. +- 12-13cm
thing is - my blood pressure is usually 65\126 or 60\130 or 70\119 ...those are the ranges... do you think i should start BP meds to lower it the systolic bp to under 120 regularly? cause my diastolic is usually low (below 70).
my neph said that not yet but im wondering if she is right.
sorry for my english (not a native speaker.)
Hello everyone! I'm new here and don't know exactly how these posts work, but I'm here to reach out for advice...I do not have PKD but my boyfriend was diagnosed months ago with "the worst possible case" of this disease...he's been sick for well over a year before he was diagnosed. for all of you who have it..I'm sure you can all sympathize with him. He's 29 years old. His father, aunt, and uncle...
Has anyone tried supplements like L-argenine, NAC or CoQ10? I know they all help bp but not sure of thier impact on PKD?
Hi Guys - not sure if you have read this before, but have posted about this on this forum earlier.The Artifical Kidney Project is all set to get into clinical in human trials early 2018! if all goes according to plan the device can be launched as early as 2020.I know this information is a big ray of hope for me. Initially, I didn't want to pin my hopes up on this project to be disappointed but...
So I will either have a egg donor or PGD done for my second pregnancy. Can anyone share with me their pregnancy experience? Does Kidney function decline post pregnancy. I am 30 years old, good kidney functions with Mild hypertension.I have a child who is 3 years old and had an uneventful pregnancy and no loss in Kidney function although I was 3 years younger.
