WD, I am not a doc and don't really interpret labs but for their definitions and that sort of thing.
It seems some kidney functions are in normal range and some are a bit high. Mike sees a nephrologist every 4-6 months, which is covered by his insurance. Yes, prograf is hard on the kidneys. But if they ever fail, he buys time with kidney dialysis. But for now, I bet your Mom, like Mike, is okay. There is no dialysis for livers, so they take the prograf!
They tried Mike on the kidney sparing antirejection med Rapamune, but he did not tolerate it well.
His nephrologist said many do not. I posted this question on a TP forum and some did have good luck with the Rapa.
This is a matter for your TP coordinator and nephrologist to work out.
How are YOU today?
