my progress is slow but it is progress, doc says it is just taking a while for me
my proteins are staying around 3 (still down from 9 in Nov)
he is lowering my prednisone from 60/40 alt days to 40 a day, I need to watch my sugar or the prednisone could cause me to become diabetic, one of the fabulous side effects behind door # 3 (my sugar was a little high my last test and completely fine before) this news thrills me.
he added tekturna 150mg a day to my list of meds, he says this medication should help my kidney's heal a different way than the other med Diovan but is still keeping me on the Diovan. I may open my own drugstore.
Ah well, i'll get there or maybe my new double chin will get there before me........ha, ha, ha. Anyhoo, I do think I have gotten better these past few weeks so we shall see how it goes next month.
