    I have a solitary kidney with numbers that put me in stage 3 kidney disease. Lost one a year and a half ago to a large benign tumor. I was recently put on Lipitor and had side effects 10 days into it. Symptoms were rapid heart beat, shortness of breath, nausea. Cardiologist pulled me off of it. My 6 month bloodwork showed a big increase in my creatinine levels (from 1.5 to 2.8). Wanting to explore ways to help my kidney filter better. In my search I found this group.

  • Fibromuscular Dysplasia of right kidney artery dis...

    Fibromuscular Dysplasia of right kidney artery discovered accidentally by a cat scan with dye in it when integrative dr was looking for a renin producing tumour after my BP kept going high. No tumour found, but FMD was discovered. I have been on 80mg of Lipitor for 10yrs due to high cholesterol. Also on Coplavix for Angina attack. Stents applied due to blocked heart arteries. Cholesterol levels down to normal as I have been treating Hashimotos with NDT(Natural Dessicated Thyroid extract) and t3 for the last two years. Have dropped Lipitor back to 20mg.

    I started taking Lipitor 20 mg In July 2016.Took blood test Sept 2016.Bilirinin total was 1.4,retested March 207 still 1.4.The lab test indicates this is high. I found this out by requesting copies of my blood tests.my doctor did not mention this to me. I am concerned about the longer term affect of this high reading. This prompted me to start searching the internet for more information about atorvastatin and high Bilirubin totals. I plan on seeing my doctor next month to discuss this further. I had been on crestor 20 mg for two years prior to the Lipitor.did not have high Bilirubin with crestor. Changed to Lipitor because of insurance reasons.

    I am a type 2 diabetic taking lantus (once a day), Atorvastatin 40mg (once daily), and metformin 500mg (two tabs twice daily with meals). [Also coreg and lisinopril for blood pressure]. I try to get out and walk. I play at golf and walk the course for 9 (and sometimes 18) holes twice a week when the weather cooperates. Usually I am tuckered out after that sort of walking. It does help keep my blood sugar down. I am having trouble losing weight though. I am stuck at 225-230. No I am NOT eating too much. I have been stuck at this weight for several years now. I want to get down to 200 or less.
