Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
How old are you?
Why have you lost kidney function?
What is your diagnosis as it relates to your kidney's?
Are you on dialysis?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Other than controlling your BP there is nothing you can do to improve your kidney function.
The best way to help your kidneys would be to consult with a urologist and, after she looks over your entire clinical picture, see what she has to say.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

I wish there were but, in most instances, this is not the case.
Of course, the best person to advise you on what, if anything, you can do would be your urologist who knows your entire history best.....and -- as you already said -- she agrees with what I've told you here today.
Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.
