Kidney functions and lymphedema?

  • Has anyone found a relationship between primary lymphedema and kidney functions? Or dysfunctions, I should say? I've had primary lymphedema since 1967, it's well managed since 2009 with CDT, MLD, nightime compression, daily Class IV garment wear, and good health. But now I find in the past 18 months my blood tests are showing rising creatinine serum levels (1.17 in Oct., 2012 to 1.66 in Oct., 2013 to 2.1 this month) and other "flags" that show my kidneys are at risk. 

    Has anyone found a relationship between lots of lymph fluid being pumped into the blood system and kidney failures?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Sharon Vogel, CLT Hello, Mr. Miller, I came across your blog question which correlates to another blogger's similar question posed to Dr. Stanley Rockson of LE&RN: https://lymphaticnetwork.org/ask-experts/e/stanley-rockson#496
