Re: Unable to see main renal artery
There's a number of reason they think I might have renal stenosis - first and foremost, I have carotid stenosis (>50% right, <50% left), and carotid stenosis is apparently secondary to stenosis elsewhere.
Another reason is my high blood pressure, which has been pretty hard to control. I take three bp meds - Atacand, Amiloride HCTZ, and have been on a beta blocker at times, and nitro patch at times. All three combined and my bp still runs high. I also have very erratic major spikes in my bp (200/120, etc). I guess they are just trying to rule in/out causes of my high bp?!
