Just had results of latest blood tests today following the introduction of an additional pill for my high blood pressure 3 weeks ago. Three of the tests on the blood have come back reading even more abnormal than the test done 3 months ago. My sodium levels have reduced from normal, urea and creatinine have increased to a higher "abnorma" and my eGFR kidney function has reduced from 47 to 39 in just 3 weeks on the additional pill - a diuretic called Indapamide. Needless to say that will be stopped from tomorrow, and I'm so glad as I've been feeling more and more fatigued and finding it difficult to put one leg in front of the other, apparently due to my reduced sodium levels. Just crossing everything that things will improve after stopping these pills.
The whole reason for trying to get my high blood pressure down was to stop the pressure from aggravating my sole kidney function - unfortunately all the medication I've tried has had the opposite effect and whereas my kidney function was originally low but stable, it is now further deteriorating.
Just crossing everything that things will improve after stopping this latest pill.....better still that a magic forumla can be found for high blood pressure!

Still on just the Losartan but doubt it's controlling my BP on its own - the consultant said it wouldn't, and I'm putting off taking it!! Will post how I get with regard to the abnormal blood test redings following the next blood test in about 3 weeks time. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed!
