Feb 25, 2017 · Tour of High Altitude Clinic with Dr. Jan Stepanek in Healthy Living

I have 3 blood clots in one lung and was advised to not travel by airplane as this can cause heart attacks and strokes. Is this true and is there a way to find something out about as I have a court case in another province I can not travel too.

Feb 25, 2017 · Stage 3 CKD in Kidney & Bladder

I can not go to a nephrologist until stage 4 in Canada,our government medical does not allow it. I see a dietitian for free in 3 weeks at my local hospital. I am 54 and 2 years a go my kidney function was 92%, 4 months a go 70%, 3 months a go 70%. It is considered a problem to change so fast and I am arranging to get some blood tests on this. It is considered a problem if it changes 10% a year, even if in the normal range. I have 3 blood clots in one lung, 3 months a go found out my kidneys are not producing the hormone that makes hemoglobin and was given a hormone replacement shot and Iron pills. My blood tests showed white and red blood cells were both damaged,wrong shape and size and not enough of both. I am on Xarelto for 3 blood clots in one lung from 3 months a go and will arrange on my own for blood tests to see if improved. I was told to add salt daily to keep my blood pressure at 96/65 otherwise it is 80/60 daily and 120 with no exercise for 3 days and immediately down after my gym class. If I exercise daily blood pressure is the same before and after exercise. Maybe it is all kidney related.??

Feb 25, 2017 · Diminished kidney function in Kidney & Bladder

I have low blood pressure 80/60 and Dr. advised me to add salt daily and it keeps it at 100/65 daily. If I do not exercise for 3 days it will go to 120 and back down the first time after I go to the gym. I am at stage 2,but 2 years ago was 92% function and 4 months a go 60%, 3 months a go 70%. I will see someone soon to find out the problem on my own. I have anemia because my kidneys stopped producing the hormone that makes hemoglobin,I was given a hormone replacement shot and do not know if it worked.

Feb 25, 2017 · Diminished kidney function in Kidney & Bladder

My kidney function has gone from 92% to 60% in 2 years. 3 months ago it was 70%. I was advised by our government medical site that a person should see about it even it is in the healthy range and goes down 10% a year and it means your body is doing this and it needs to be looked after. 3 months a go my kidneys stopped producing the hormone that makes hemoglobin and I was given a hormone replacement shot. I have not been tested since and have severe anemia on my last test at that time. I got all hospital records and am making a list of all blood tests I want done. I can not see a specialist as I can not see one till stage 4 under our medical program. I see a dietitian in 3 weeks for free.I am at stage 2. The last tests 3 months a go I got done at one hospital and 2 walk in clinics to get the results and all tests I wanted and to find out I have 3 blood clots in one lung as well. You sometimes have to see more then one Dr. to get what information you need. I see a pharmacy on some heart health tests in 3 weeks then will arrange for more recent blood tests.

I found out myself the first time about it by calling 911 emergency after extreme pain in my lung and pain that shot down my left arm like people mention when they have a heart attack.. After in hospital for 2 weeks got sent home. A few days later I called 911 again and back in the hospital,both times I almost had a heart attack because of 90% blockage on one side. It took 8 months on blood thinners for it to go away.
