I was kinda concerned as I still have the weirdest tickle in my throat no doubt from these BP meds, (it's been there since I started taking them months ago, "dry cough" being a reported side effect.), but with those high leukocytes, I was getting concerned about a potential lung thing going on.
He also e'd me my blood work-up from the hospital last time and I'm HAPPY to report that both my Sodium AND Potassium levels--after eating plenty more K-rich healthy foods lately--are both TRES NORMAL!
This means I can eat MORE pulses. Next on the list, white beans. Miss 'em like crazy. Perhaps even a few slices of--GULP!-- cherry tomatoes with 'em!??! One of the big no-no foods on the Renal Diet and so GOOD with beans, and a lil Parmesan and... I'm getting hungry again.
Oh, and my LDL cholesterol levels are better than ever, now totally normal. :) The triglycerides are still riding high, but alas, I'm learning that this is not a shocker for those with CKD. Being on the pill can also raise those levels, I've read.
Aaanywho, it's been a good day with lots looking under the ole hood and liking what's there and I wanted to share it with you all.
More good vibes comin' atachya's,
