Thanks for your response Straydog.
I am on Vitamin D 5000 iu daily, 1000 mg Turmeric, 1250 mg vitamin B12, 1 mg folic acid, and a good probiotic.
I spoke to my GI yesterday. (9 days after I left him a message regarding the acute renal failure...hmmmm) He asked for a timeline and explanation of what happened and said that he will get with the nephrologist. He really does not want me to miss my next Remicade infusion. I advised him I was following her directive and about
her idea of the bag of saline before and after a remicade infusion...but she was going to research further. He said he has not had another patient develop acute renal failure while on Remicade. My response was that it may have a lower percentage rate of occurances but if you are that occurance it changes things for you. So....he is researching further.....
The nephrologist told me not to get weekly labs. I only need them if I am in pain and right before her appointment in a month. She wants to give my kidneys time to stabilize and fears that if my numbers are not good the worry and stress will cause additional issues. I think the tests would help me know if I am drinking enough water, have lowered my protein intake enough, etc... 😱
I will let you all know how it goes...
