Kidney Function Starts To Weaken
At night, I have been diagnosed with hypertension since 2014 due to hereditary factors, so I have taken Ammodipine 10mg and Lozartan 50 smp now. For this month I only consume 10 mg of amlodipine and complain of lumbago, fatigue, joint pain, rashes and itching all over the body, my urine tends to turn red, my question is whether my kidney function starts to decrease due to my hypertension? And how to handle it … Thank you.
