If your doctor has you start on this medicine, please be sure to monitor thyroid levels. My mom's kidney function took a nosedive, among other side effects. They were holding steady for a long time, and then her creatinine went up and gfr declined after her cardioversion. She had anultrasound to map her arm... and was two days away from surgery for the fistula to prepare for dialysis. Luckily,we found out in time that her TSH was 152, which would have really complicated the situation under general anesthesia. Not only that, some of the symptoms we attributed to her kidney failure were actually a side effect of the medicine.
