My husband's doctor said he has too much protein in his urine is this treatable or a cure
Most cases can be treated, not cured. You may take it as a chronic disease, like diabetes, if managed well, people can live with it. Make sure managing the blood sugar and BP well, they're correlated.
I just learned i have stage 2 kidney disease. Please, i don't know where to turn.
Stage 2 is an early stage, if you take proper actions the progression of the disease can be slowed down greatly. What you do: 1. manage your blood pressure careful, make sure it's within normal range 2.manage your blood sugar, make sure it's within normal range 3. low sodium, low protein, low fat diet 4. eat fruits and vegetables 5. physical exercises
Just been told I have a 3x9 cm on the uncinate and a 2x5 on the tail of the pancreas. They biopsied it and says there is no cancer , also had a carcino-embryonic blood test it was 0.8 is this good news?
For carcinoembryonic Antigen(CEA), <2.5 ng/ml is good. If you meant your CEA reading is 0.8 ng/ml, then it's okay. CEA is a tumor marker. Both the tumor marker and biopsy say negative. It's good news.
