thxs KRE and dwpavlik for answering me. i appreciate ur answers. dwpavlik how was ur kidney disease reversed? they put me on a med called tarka 2mg/180mg. he told me that would relieve some of the pressure off the kidneys?
again thxs for any answers u can give me.

Hello, Are you still on Tarka? I ask because that is what I am on now... for 3 weeks now. My normal diet is high in Potassium, and there are warnings to not take Potassium supplements when on this medication. I think it's causing side effects such as numbness in my hands, arms and feet. It happens like twice a day, that I get these symptoms. Did you experience this???
Thanks you!
