This'll be a short one and one that I'm hoping will be helpful to many, not only those of us with kidney damage.
It's just the sharing of the one of the fruits of my recent googlings as, if my triglycerides don't come down significantly after the prednisone is out of my system, then likely, more drugs will have to be taken.
And as usual, said drugs are not particularly advised for those with severe kidney damage soooooo, I just wrote my Nephrologist an email inquiring if fish oil is a prescribable supplement.
With my question I also sent a few lines from this pubmed study that I wanted to share:
Nice, eh? 'Course to many, this is far from news, (though I wasn't privy to the benefits of vitamin E with fish oil), and even though it's easy to find endless sources of information on the subject of fish oil out there in cyberspace, I prefer to have my info in scholarly writing.
Oh, and in other meds-news, I can now officially take ONE LESS MEDICATION PER DAY!
I briefly saw my Neph on Friday and asked if there were any meds I could discontinue and wow, I'm sure glad I asked.
So that's all folks.
