  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • 10 months on Tekturna & my Creatinine went up & Gfr down. At 64, I now have a 70 year old kidney. My comment? No one should be on this drug & the FDA & Novartis knew this was a serious side effect. Not enough emphasis on kidney disease...calling it "renal impairment".The kidney cannot repair itself...no reversal.
