Hi doctor,

I have a bad throat, cold and mild fever. I am taking antibiotic Amoxycillin and Ibugesic plus. Can I get liver function test and kidney function test at this time or should I wait?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It is advisable to get the liver and kidney function tests done after a week, as these drugs alter the test results.

I got the tests done. Please go through the attached reports and give your opinion.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I saw your reports (attachment removed to protect patient's identity).

  • Your renal function tests are abnormal. You need to consult a nephrologist with these reports.
  • Your liver function test may be abnormal secondary to the drug effects.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • If it is not evaluated within a week, it can be harmful.
  • I suggest you do the following investigations:
  1. RFT (renal function test).
  2. Uric acid.
  3. eGFR (estimated glomerular filtration rate).
  • I suggest you take tablet Feburic (Febuxostat) 40 mg, once a day for seven days, tablet Shelcal (elemental Calcium and Vitamin D3) 500 mg, twice a day for 10 days and capsule Laretol (Calcitriol) 0.25, once a day for 10 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

Revert after 15 days with the reports.
