I have never smoked; do not drink alcohol. I take meds to control blood pressure...was 106/65 today. Take med for hi cholesterol...under control. HDL 37; LDL 60.0
Micardis HCT 80/25 1 x daily; Vytorin 10/40 1 x daily; also take Calcium Citrate + D 315 mg 2 x daily and Nexium 20 mg 1 x daily
So Doc, Is Norvasc a different BP med? Do I request to my doctor that I just take micardis plus Norvasc or just either of them? Will this change the GFR? Does this mean I do or do not have stage three kidney disease? Does my diet have anything to do with the GFR drop? I really love this diet and I saw such a big change in my levels.
Thank you so much. Now I am crying. Thank you.
