Diaformin Renal Failure Acute Causes and Reviews
Healthy kidneys clean your blood by removing excess fluid, minerals, and wastes. They also make hormones that keep your bones strong and your blood healthy. But if the kidneys are damaged, they don't work properly. Harmful wastes can build up in your body. Your blood pressure may rise. Your body may retain excess fluid and not make enough red blood cells. This is called kidneyfailure.
If your kidneysfail, you need treatment to replace the work they normally do. The treatment options are dialysis or a kidney transplant. Each treatment has benefits and drawbacks. No matter which treatment you choose, you'll need to make some changes in your life, including how you eat and plan your activities. But with the help of health care providers, family, and friends, most people with kidneyfailure can lead full and active lives.

I'm 26 years old and I have hypoglycemia since 1 year (to my knowledge). My doctor gave me Diaformine 500gr per day, and I'm taking it since 5 months regularly. It really changed me, I mean on a positive way. No more tiredness, no more crazy envies for sugar, it helped me loss weight too.

Dosage 3x500mg daily. Nausea, loss of appetite, Possibly also constipation.On Thyroxine,Tritace,Cardizem,Natrilix,Lipitor,Cartia. Because of the nausea myDiet therefore not well balanced any more which affects my glucose readings. Endocrinologist says its the best type of tablet for Type 2 diabetes and to stick with it - alterntive is to start insulin injections. Aged 75 years.
