|Blood work for Atripla, Diabetes, and High Blood Pressure
Apr 25, 2010
I am currently taking ATRIPLA, and I have diabetes and high blood pressure. What tests should I have done to monitor my kidneys, and how often?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
It depends on whether you currently have normal kidney function or not. At the very least test like BUN and creatinine should be obtained quarterly.
