Diseases that cause liver lesions AND kidney disease?
Approximately two years ago I was diagnosed with spilled protein in urine and blood in urine. In the course of diagnostic tests for the kidney disfunction a CT Scan was performed and liver lesions were found.
A slew of tests were performed. It was determined the lesions were thankfully benign. The spilled protein has persisted to the point that a 24 hour tests indicates 3850 in spilled protein. All other kidney and liver function tests remain normal.
My latest CT scan yesterday indicates a few more small lesions on the liver.
My concern lies in the fact that although it has been determined the liver issue is benign and the kidney situation is not making me ill at this time no one seems to be searching for a diagnosis to either condition.
Furthermore, I am very convinced they must be related. No one gets kidney disease and liver lesions at the same time. The odds are astronomical it would seem.
My doctors do not seem to be concerned the two problems could be linked despite the fact that both seemed to occur at the same time.
ARE THEIR ANY DISEASES, DISORDERS OR CONDITIONS THAT COULD CAUSE LIVER LESIONS AND SPILLED PROTEIN?
Finally, I am a lifetime carrier of hepatitis b. Infected at birth. No illness at anytime except ten years ago my liver suddenly and inexplicably failed and then recovered. No illness since.
i am concerned about the proteinuria which appears nephrotic in range. Active HBV could affect the kidney in this manner. HBV could also lead to liver cancer and lesions in the liver if it is active. If the HBV is active you definitely need to receive treatment for it. I am assuming that you do not have anything bad in the liver so would urge you to addfress the proteinuria. You should unequivocally be seeing a nephrologist.
Well I too have liver lesions. But I have HCV. Now to the point of ESLD. I would say it's a safe bet thet these lesions came from the hepatitis. As that's wht My GI has told me. Good luck I'm sure they told you to stay away from any form of alcohol. If they did not please do as this is like battery acid to your liver.
