My doctor address it, or look into it. I asked him about my abn. labs & I mentioned the info from my hours of study on my own health & Meds... what should I do? If he doesn't respond to my inquiries, but "onset kidney disease" is notated in (literally) everything I have found surrounding my conditions.
Onset kidney disease is a common thread in my personal health & med research (incl.labs) why won't?

I live with seizure disorders 3meds3xday, sleep disorders 2meds3xday, fatigue ibuprofen as needed, which is often, "Body Dysmorphia", which creates a constant awareness and stress regarding eating. I have not been diagnosed, but i am pretty certain that i have had ADHD since i was a child, and it has not been treated (i was just a "wild child" or just an "unruly kid"). Oh! and just for fun, I have recurring UTIs that reveal no sign or symptoms. I have taken most of the antibiotics on the list, and now I am approaching the last three and strongest ones. My doctor said that I am still young, so i should try not to take them unless absolutely necessary. I am on Adderall for my Narcolepsy, but after I take it, I still get extremely tired almost directly after taking it. I can't keep my eyes open at all. After I sleep awhile I feel pretty good for about four/five hours until it wears off and then I am exhausted again. I take 10mg (2xdays), and I am still just as tired, but I am reluctant to ask him about increasing the dose due to the class of the drug. Meanwhile I supplement with power drinks, which help somewhat. I ballroom dance and it is slowing me down and destroying my reputation as a serious dancer. Help! I have no life....work and come home and crash...
You don't mention what your condition is, but based on your doctor's reaction, here's my guess. You don't have it yet, it's just a possibility, therefore it's not a "now problem" that he needs to address. Also, it may be that he can't address it at this time because it may be imperative that you are on the meds you have currently been prescribed. It sounds like you are very proactive about your own health, so keep researching but look at ways to prevent it and leave the rest to God. I hope this helps in some small way. Good luck to you.
It never hurts to get a second opinion. You might want to see a urologist (bladder and kidney) and an endocrinologist. Sounds like you have a lot going on - you don't want to end up with kidney failure if it could have been prevented. Another idea would be to seek a consult with an Internal Medicine doctor - they are more specialized than a general practitioner and would be at least aware of all the different conditions.

Wow! Thank you, I have never even heard the word "endocrinologist" mentioned regarding my healthcare. Even though my thyroid labs have read clear for years, I do have a history of abnormal levels, and, if I remember correctly, I was on medication for it for at least a year. Well, and now might be a good time, I'm 45, and if I may say so myself, I'm still looking pretty good (it's the Cherokee blood in me!ha), ill be getting hot flashes soon I'm sure. "Onset signs of Menopause"... just a joke, but I think will seek a consult with an Endo. Doc. Thank you, I hope all is well with you, and have a great day!
