i was checking if there is anyway to prevent kidneys damage in cases like mine where kidenys cannot stand tenofovir, i don t have plans to add tenofovir for the moment but in any case i'd like to make sure i will be able to use it if ever needed.
this is what i have found,there are 3 antioxidants that help prevent kidneys damage:
co-q10, looks like the most potent since it has been used in patients with severe renal failure.Co Q10 for chronic renal failure
NAC acetyl cisteine, antioxidant already present in HR protocol
alpha-lipoic acid, antioxidant already present in HR protocol
L-carnitine, i don't know how this work on liver so i'd not suggest it
It seems I am doing right thing by taking coq10. My purpose is for blood pressure. L-carnitine exists naturally in human body and is biosynthesized by liver and kidney, so I guess it doesn't hurt and may relieve the function if liver and kidney are impaired. I used to take alpha-lipoic acid and l-carnitine, but stopped them recently.
HR protocol lowered creatinine from 1.14 to 1.03 in 2 weeks, creatinine clearance from 112ml/min to 118ml/min, creatinuria from 1.86g/24h to 1.76g/24h.
i also added 90mg daily co-q10 to HR protocol 3 days ago
my point is to reach the minimum normal level for creatinine 0.95 which was my baseline value before starting therapy so that if i need to add tenofovir or increase nitazoxanide it will stay at that low level
nomral range from creatinine is 0.9-1.2 but any increase from baseline value might mean kidneys damage, creatinine clearance is also needed because creatinine is different according to age and muscular mass so a bodybuilder has normal creatinine even at 1.2-1.3
