I stumbled across the following comment recently and I was wondering if there is any validity to his claims:
Try Coenzyme Q10 400mg a day. My godmother was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease 5 years ago. Her eGFR was 37. I put her on 400mg CoQ10 a day. Her kidney function had returned to normal within a year. Her eGFR is now above 60. She no longer needs to see a kidney specialist. Check out the following articles. . . .
According to the article on CQ10 in the links I provided: //Dr. Singh recommends that all patients with renal failure take 180 mg/day of water-soluble CoQ10 (Q-Gel) if their urine output is greater than 500 ml/day on dialysis. If urine output increases to 1,000 ml/day within 12 weeks, then CoQ10 is likely to be effective. Patients should be able to stop dialysis within 12-48 weeks if the urine output goes above 1,500 ml/day. If urine output does not increase in 12 weeks, then CoQ10 is unlikely to be effective.//
So, why not give it 12 weeks and see how it goes? My thing is: How am I meant to measure my urine output each day? I could get creative, but I’m sure there must be something practical I could use, right?
I have an appointment (finally) to see the nephrologist on May 13th.
I was wondering if my weight training could cause a spike in creatinine levels.
Also, I recently took myself off of the omeprazole I was taking after reading of reported cases of nephritis and acute renal failure. In the 90 days that I took omeprazole my GFR dropped from 36 to 30.
Also, my creatinine level is at 2.70. From what I understand, my creatinine level should be closer to 8.0 before I would be required to go on dialysis. Is that correct?
