Ok - Doctor's are stumped. Here is what I've been told.

I have HPB which is now controlled using an ace inhibitor/diuretic, edema, low red blood cell count, elevated protein in urine, very low IGF-I, weight gain, candida, intrinsic blocking factor, high pulse (over 100 on a daily basis), stomach upset daily. They've done all the gastro tests that can be done and they were inconclusive. They've run blood tests and 24 urinalysis and this is all I've been told. I have an appointment on Thursday with the doctor but I don't know why. It doesn't sound like he has an answer for me. Any help would be appreciated!

  • It could be the matter of the type of medications u are taking combined. I had to switch medications more than once to find the right combination. I had side affects somewhat the same as yours, even my blood work was all over the place. I hope the dr can find answers to your HBP control issues etc As EvErCat
