sorry i have no idea but i do know that only creatinine clearance by 24hrs urine collection is realiable, formulas from blood creatinine values are useless because you can have kidneys damage and normal creatinine
i monitor my kidneys by:
creatinine clearance by 24hrs urine collection once a year
blood creratinine every 3 months
blood Phosphorus every 3 months
blood calcium every 3 months
checked creatinine/microalbumine ratio once in 3 years
i prevent damage by fibroguard and keeping urine ph around 7 and when lowers to 6 or 6.5 i increase by baking soda
very difficult to say if you have kidneys damage, there are no test with sensibility high enough.study for hope posted some tests not easy to find commercially with good sensibility but don t remember all of them.
creat clearance by 24hrs urine collection as a minimum to know if you have a decline in function
also what is your blood creatinine before starting nucs and kinects under nucs
did you test creatinine microalbumine ratio?this is the test studyforhope suggested to predict damage, it gets abnormal before damage is done
the interesting is that adding telbivudine even adefovir or truvada which are very toxic for kidneys recover kidneys function and drugs become non toxic
if you dont recover by fibroguard and baking soda you may consider changing entecavir with telbivudine, the potency of this combo is higher than entecavir and barrier to resistance as good as with entecavir
