Complications from 2009

  1. My son's albumin level was elevated so he was put on blood pressure medication, even though his blood pressure is fine. What does this mean? (18 Dec 2009)
  2. My son was put on an ACE inhibitor three years ago for microalbuminuria. A year ago, he was diagnosed with postural proteinuria. Will he need to take the ACE inhibitor forever? (2 Dec 2009)
  3. My daughter, who had a pancreas transplant in 2007, is hospitalized with retinopathy. Her eyes were fine in 2007, but are deteriorating. What do you suggest she do? (12 Nov 2009)
  4. Six weeks ago, my teen daughter developed sudden hearing loss in her right ear. Three ENT specialists said it's a possible complication of diabetes. Have you ever heard of this? (2 Nov 2009)
  5. I am on pain medications for an ulcer on my foot. I was told to endure the pain or have my leg amputated. How can I prolong the life of my leg, my life? (16 Sep 2009)
  6. Are you familiar with the herbal treatment called Segratax for the treatment of gastroparesis? Is it safe? My 23-year-old son is looking for treatment options. (27 Aug 2009)
  7. I've had diabetes for 29 years. During my current pregnancy, my protein and microalbumin have jumped dramatically. What might have caused this? (16 Jul 2009)
  8. What is creatinine (urine microalbumin)? Is a 78 mg/g level of creatinine (urine microalbumin) good? What is the normal range? (2 Jun 2009)
  9. Is Neurontin an effective treatment for pain relief from gastroparesis? (17 Apr 2009)
  10. A nephrologist said my daughter has orthostatic proteinuria, probably not related to her diabetes, and suggested monitoring. Would lisinopril be useful in this case? (23 Mar 2009)
  11. My granddaughter has been put on lisinopril to protect her kidneys. Since this is a blood pressure medication, how will it do so? What will it do to her over the years? (15 Mar 2009)
  12. The endocrinologist repeated my granddaughter's urine test after not liking the results of her first test. At what is he looking? I'm worried (23 Feb 2009)
  13. Our 12-year-old has been put on an ACE inhibitor for his blood pressure and to help his kidneys. How can we prevent complications? (10 Feb 2009)
