@nazleer because I’m diabetic (for nearly 50 years) I’m currently using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and an insulin delivery system (pump) that is filled with Humalog or Lispro insulin. I have an endocrinologist that prescribes diabetes related stuff.
Diabetes and hypertension (high BP) are two leading causes of kidney disease. I have chronic kidney disease (CKD stage 4). I have a nephrologist for things related to this. I am on medications to help control blood pressure. They are Torsemide, Amlodipine and Losartan. My doctor also recommended sodium bicarbonate which is an over the counter (OTC) antacid because he felt my urine was too acid.
I take Rosuvastatin to help control cholesterol.
I also have osteoporosis and receive an injection of Prolia every 6 months. My doctor has recommended that I take calcium and Vitamin D, which are over the counter (OTC) supplements.
I nearly forgot, I have obstructive sleep apnea and use a CPAP machine at night.
Last but not least is Tacrolimus which is an immune suppressant. I had a pancreas transplant nearly 18 years ago. The Tacrolimus is to prevent rejection.
These are a lot of conditions and medications. I’m blessed to have my providers (primary, endocrinologist, nephrologist, & pulmonologist for the sleep apnea, as part of the same health care system so they can collaborate for my best care and I have confidence that we are all on the same page so to speak. My nephrologist also works with the transplant center to address any transplant issues.
I was wondering why you want to know about my medications? Do you have other medications causing you concerns? How can I help?

Sorry I didn't mean to be invasive. I wanted to know what other medication was helping you with the diarrhea. I too have problems with fiber. My doctor is suggesting a Lactose intolerance test. Could you tell me what foods you are avoiding completely?
