Kidney Disease
« on: August 27, 2023, 11:05:34 am »
I've been dianosed with chronic kidney disease due to my elevated creatine levels. I suffered some kidney damage from an experimental drug I took many years ago for CMV. I think that years of being on antiviarals has also had it's effect.
My primary care doctor has referred me to a nephrologist and infectious disease specialist. I hate the idea of more doctors and meds but understand the need.

Has anyone else experienced this? What is the treatment?
Current Meds: Juluca

Some HIV drugs can affect kidney function. Tenofovir is one of them. When you see the nephrologist, I would ask them to check if any of the drugs you're taking may be causing or contributing to decreased kidney function.
