Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. Based on your question about chitosan, it is possibly effective for person with high blood pressure and for recovery after surgery. For kidney problems, early research shows that taking chitosan by mouth may reduce high cholesterol, help to correct anemia, improve physical strength and sleep in people with kidney failure that are on hemodialysis. However, there is still insufficient evidence to treat kidney problems such as elevated creatinine level. Thus, to avoid any complications, physical examination is required before any medication or supplement is prescribed.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor for full examination. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
