    I am 35 years old male, an Engineer.
    One day suddenly I had pain in my abdomen. I went to Dr. He advised me to do
    some tests like LFTs and RFTs. After viewing my report the Dr. told me that my
    creatinine and urea levels were high. He gave me medicines, I took those medicines for
    1 month but no effect was there. I again went for RFTs which were the same. One
    day I was surfing for the internet and got to know about Planet Ayurveda. I
    ordered Revive kidney pack and still, I am using it. my urea and creatinine are
    much decreased now and I am very happy with this improvement.

    Do you have a video for the other common renal path? Thought I was doing fine on that because Uworld just constantly hits minimal change, PSGN and IgA nephropathy. I’ve studied Pathoma and matured the Zanki deck for renal, but I still get them wrong if it’s not those first 3 I mentioned.

    what unit do we use in ratio BUN/Cre , sir ?

    • Dave Cubbler
      Dave Cubbler 10 months ago

      There aren't any units since its a ratio. Both BUN and creatinine are mg/dL so units will cancel out.

    The reason why Post renal is a combination of looking like a pre-renal or intrinsic picture is because for example if there is renal calculi in the ureter, the obstruction will cause a back-flow of fluid towards the kidney. This will allow the kidney to reabsorb more urea nitrogen therefore increasing the ratio. When this continues for a long period of time, it eventually damages the kidneys from doing its job and causes the reabsorption to fail, decreasing the ratio. Hope that helps!!

    hi , just a quick correction ,among causes of intrinsic AKI should be ATN : acute tubular necrosis, instead of RTA

      For Klinefelter I wrote a little poem:
      Tall Dude
      Man boobs
      Small Junk
      No spunk
      Klinefelter is a longer name than Turner so Klinefelter gets more chromosomes, 47 XXY, whereas Turner is a shorter word with 45 X0.
      He usually presents as tall and lanky. He has gynecomastia and small genitalia. And he is infertile.
      For Turner:
      Short chick
      Wide nips
      Top seed
      Can't bleed
      Ao's wrecked
      Webbed neck
      "Top seed can't bleed" means Turner is the most common cause of primary amenorrhea. I hope these help!

      You don't have to understand so much as you have to memorize the ratio

    In a previous video u said:
    (1) Don't take a lunch break -- instead, take 10 min here and there. Eat
    protein bars and take a few sips of something caffeinated. Taking an
    entire lunch break weighs you down and makes you sleepy.

    so after each block we can take a 10 min break ? i thought the next block starts right after u submit the previous block

    • Dirty Medicine
      Dirty Medicine  3 years ago +1

      Exactly. Your total break timer will run as soon as you opt to start, and will end once you return.

    • First aid

      WOW ! did not know that. so if i take a break, it can be of different lengths? for example my first break can be 8 mins, 2nd break can be 20 mins, next break 5 mins ? it can be random as long as i dont go over 60 mins ?

    • Dirty Medicine
      Dirty Medicine  3 years ago +2

      You can use your "break timer" whenever you want. It gives you a total of 45 min (+15 min if you skip the "intro", equating to a full 60 min) to use as you please. I recommend breaking at least every 2 sections. I did the following: Section 1, Section 2, Break, Section 3, Break, Section 4, Break, Section 5, Section 6, Break, Section 7
