Furosemide Metabolic Alkalosis Causes and Reviews


Metabolism is the process your body uses to get or make energy from the food you eat. Food is made up of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Chemicals in your digestive system break the food parts down into sugars and acids, your body's fuel. Your body can use this fuel right away, or it can store the energy in your body tissues, such as your liver, muscles, and body fat.

A metabolic disorder occurs when abnormal chemical reactions in your body disrupt this process. When this happens, you might have too much of some substances or too little of other ones that you need to stay healthy. There are different groups of disorders. Some affect the breakdown of amino acids, carbohydrates, or lipids. Another group, mitochondrial diseases, affects the parts of the cells that produce the energy.

You can develop a metabolic disorder when some organs, such as your liver or pancreas, become diseased or do not function normally. Diabetes is an example.

I have the same feeling, definitely you are not strange.

Sat, 19 Mar 2011

I feel light headed, and my eyes feel dry as if wind is blowing. My vision has become unusually blurred and I there is a greenish yellowish tinge around my vision when I go outside in the light. When I first woke up this morning, everything I looked at had a greenish looking filter over it and when I went out to drive , my eyes were light and color sensitive to everything. It's weird as if I were in the Twilight Zone, gradually it got a little more tolerable and bearable, but there has definitely been a change since they gave me all this different medicine. I don't feel right or like myself.I feel strange

I am taking 40mgs of Furosemide daily it has really helped , i went for a drug screen for a job and it came back altered could you please tell me what caused this ?
Tue, 16 Sep 2008
After about 3 yrs of Lasix (20mg) I developed an unknown allergic reaction that caused blistering on my hands and feet. My feet would get 20-30 at a time and my hands would get hundreds at a time. I had to take medication to keep the breakouts minimized. This slow torture lasted 2 years or so. Due to a situation on my part that engaged my stubborn streak I was without lasix for a month. I realized that since I wasn't taking the lasix I also wasn't needing the pill for the blisters. Started lasix again... blisters. Stopped taking lasix... no blisters. After 2 yrs lasix wasn't really working anymore for me so it didn't really matter that I stopped. I could drink a liter of water have a lasix and still not urinate to excess. I am still sensitive to processed foods and drinks however that are flavored with the wrong quot;fruity flavoringquot; (somehow related to a chemical in lasix). No more blisters or claritin though. Yeah!
