Re: High blood pressure and one kidney
I have recently been feeling the same kind of diziness, lately, along with increased backaches, funny taste in mouth, sleep issues, etc., all associated with renal insufficiency. My GFR is no where near as low as yours (last measured at about 78), and I am also a fifty year old male, with a possible cause of kidney issues being from heavy metal contamination.
I do believe that dizziness can be kidney related, as the medical literature bears this out. I am, if anything, in the early stages of kidney disease, and it is a very frustrating time, so I feel for you. Btw, my blood pressure has been very good, even on the lower end, which my pcp said might be related to my adrenals, which heavy metal toxicity can affect. I have had polyuria for over a year and a half, but no proteinuria or Hemaetinuria. Keeping my fingers crossed. Hope you get some answers. I have gotten few.
