For the sake of your lives I have to post this CONTROVERSIAL link on PREP/Truvada... From The Body which is a very reputable source on this.

    Dr. Henry of The Body which is a very reputable source tries to say 2-3 percent with healthy kidneys on Truvada that developed kidney disease PER YEAR is a small number but what they are not telling you is that most everyone was put on Truvada when it came out so what this percentage means is that over a twenty year period forty percent will have what I have because of it, chronic kidney disease.

    When I caught it my nurse at a very reputable hospital I was at told me "sounds like Truvada". Sure when they took me off of it my kidneys went from ten percent usage to about a 50 percent usage which still left me with chronic kidney disease. I like how tries to use the word "kidney damage" rather than chronic kidney disease because even monitoring it like he says does not mean they can detect when it first causes chronic kidney disease because even if the creatine numbers change so slightly that is chronic kidney disease and will continue to rise until your kidneys fail eventually no matter what you do.

    Dr. Henry: "For patients with normal renal function doing well in Truvada, the rate of development of serious renal problems from Truvada is low overall (averaging < 2-3% year)and is usually monitored every 6-12 month with lab tests. KH"

    Lastly, none of the other drugs in this particular class cause this number. Truvada has brainwashed all the doctors, hospitals, Drug and Food Administration... It's all about marketing tactics for money.

    The only good news on the horizon for me and many others right now is this... The Drug and Food Administration has put on about a year ago what is called a "fast track" on artificial kidneys because kidney transplants don't last that long and are hardly available. By 2020 they will be available as there are I believe four companies developing them and they are actually working. Medicare is ALL for this because it will save them billions of dollars per year. The thing about artificial is that the outside is made of plastic with the real makeup of kidney cells on the inside so the PLASTIC cannot be eventually rejected by the body like with a real kidney. I hope and pray man. God has been good to me.

    From Truvada website. Only gay advocacy keeps the FDA from
    banning Truvada. It's a reverse conspiracy theory situation .

    IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:

    What is the most important information I should know about TRUVADA?
    TRUVADA can cause serious side effects:

    Too much lactic acid in your blood (lactic acidosis), which is a serious medical emergency. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include weakness or being more tired than usual, unusual muscle pain, being short of breath or fast breathing, nausea, vomiting, stomach-area pain, cold or blue hands and feet, feeling dizzy or lightheaded, and/or fast or abnormal heartbeats.

    Serious liver problems. Your liver may become large and tender, and you may develop fat in your liver. Symptoms of liver problems include your skin or the white part of your eyes turns yellow, dark “tea-colored” urine, light-colored stools, loss of appetite for several days or longer, nausea, and/or stomach-area pain.
    You may be more likely to get lactic acidosis or serious liver problems if you are female, very overweight (obese), or have been taking TRUVADA for a long time. In some cases, these serious conditions have led to death. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any symptoms of these conditions.

    Worsening of hepatitis B (HBV) infection. If you also have HBV and take TRUVADA, your hepatitis may become worse if you stop taking TRUVADA. Do not stop taking TRUVADA without first talking to your healthcare provider. If your healthcare provider tells you to stop taking TRUVADA, they will need to watch you closely for several months to monitor your health. TRUVADA is not approved for the treatment of HBV.

    Serious side effects of TRUVADA may also include:

    New or worsening kidney problems, including kidney failure. Your healthcare provider may do blood tests to check your kidneys before and during treatment with TRUVADA. If you develop kidney problems, your healthcare provider may tell you to take TRUVADA less often, or to stop taking TRUVADA.
    Bone problems, including bone pain or bones getting soft or thin, which may lead to fractures. Your healthcare provider may do tests to check your bones.
    Changes in body fat can happen in people taking HIV-1 medicines.
    Changes in your immune system. If you have HIV-1 infection and start taking HIV-1 medicines, your immune system may get stronger and begin to fight infections. This may cause minor symptoms such as fever, but can also lead to serious problems. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any new symptoms after you start taking TRUVADA.

    The best option would be growing your own kidney from your own stem cells. Any other option requires use of anti rejection medication which carries many other risks. http://www.bbc.com/news/health-22123386

    MuchMoreThanMuscle,

    It was also confirmed by my doctors that alcohol does not affect the kidneys unless it affects the liver first and my liver has always been fine. Plus I only did drugs when I was young. I pretty much grew out of it by 24 and maybe dabbled in it a few times in my thirties. So you really don't know what you are talking about.

    Pretty sure any organ can go bad first without going a specific order.

    Not when it comes to alcohol. The only way alcohol destroys the kidneys WITHOUT destroying the liver first is by raising blood pressure or dehydrating you and neither of those things cause chronic kidney disease. Believe me, I am going on expert advice and personal research.

    Now could we get back to the proof I have already posted here of Truvada causing renal problems and in fact somebody else posted an article on it also. MuchMoreThanMuscle loves to take this off topic because he takes Truvada and refuses to look at this link I posted.

    Dr. Henry's full quote:
    "Kidney problems from the tenofovir in Truvada is more common in persons with pre-existing kidney problems (such as from diabetes, high blood pressure, or HIV kidney disease). For patients with normal renal function doing well in Truvada, the rate of development of serious renal problems from Truvada is low overall (averaging < 2-3% year)and is usually monitored every 6-12 month with lab tests." KH

    That does not equal you hyperbolic title "For the sake of your lives I have to post this CONTROVERSIAL link on PREP/Truvada... From The Body which is a very reputable source on this."

    Follow the money and stop drinking the poison koolaid liberals.

    Obama is keeping truvada from being banned and had it approved for prep. Truvada's maker Gilead contributed 82% of their presidential political money to obama.

    Yes it does and I explained why. 2-3 percent PER YEAR is NOT low as they are almost given to everybody in this community since they came out and so what this percentage means is over the last ten years 20 percent of patients have suffered what I am suffering now because of Truvada. So yes, it does apply to my title.

    You're such a dumbass. "Liberals" have nothing to do with this stupid medication being approved. And if you think the President has anything to do with approving or banning drugs, you know nothing about his job description.

    Your math is flawed. So after several years everyone, 100%, will have kidney problems? It means 2-3% this year, 2-3% next year, 2-3 percent every year. It's a constant not an accumulation.

    Yes it is accumulation as the drug has been given to everyone since it came out. Over a ten year period ONCE AGAIN based on the percentage he gave means 20 percent AT LEAST will get it as I am going by even the low percentage

    Find the link where it is 20%. That's BS.

    Here's two articles on Viread being associated with irreversable kidney damage... Viread is a component of Truvada:

    www.aidsbeacon.com/tag/truvada/

    www.aidsbeacon.com/.../viread-is-associated-with-long-term-irreversible- kidney-damage-hiv-aids/

    They will not do an accumulative study because they know the numbers would be right around what I have posted. All my doctors KNEW it was Truvada that caused me this. Plus I am finding posts from others that are experiencing the same thing and also being told the same thing by friends.

    Oh and Timmm55, Here you go:

    "In their analysis of comprehensive VA electronic health records, the study authors found that for each year of exposure to tenofovir, risk of protein in urine – a marker of kidney damage – rose 34 percent, risk of rapid decline in kidney function rose 11 percent and risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) rose 33 percent." Tenofovir is one of the chemicals in Truvada.

    http://www.ucsf.edu/news/2012/02/11508/tenofovir-leading-hiv-medication-linked-risk-kidney-damage

    "To be sure that tenofovir was the culprit, Scherzer and her colleagues looked for associations between 18 other antiretroviral medications and the same three measures of kidney disease: protein in urine, rapid decline in function and progression to CKD. None were associated with higher risk."

    MuchMoreThanMuscle... These statistics are only in recent years being revealed because YES the doctors know about this. All my doctor's know about this now and I have had many HIV doctors. Truvada is using every avenue to manipulate the medical industry but eventually this drug will cave in I promise. I didn't know patients either that went through what I did but my Doctor's have confessed it is a problem.

    And ALSO the Reaper video's did not come from me and I have explained who did it under my name many times.

    And ALSO, Jerred is the name my Mother raised me with even though I was named after my Father's name.

    Let me ask you THIS MuchMoreThanMuscle... Do you know a 100 percent of those taking Truvada? If not then shut the fuck up on your hopes for bareback sex and look at the statistics I just posted from reputable sources and reputable studies.

    I'll take my chances as having unprotected sex with hundreds of men is worth the risk. Who cares if the 99.9% reduction rate for those on Truvada was derived from a faulty study and grossly inaccurate word-of-mouth. Bareback sex is just too hot to pass up. Thanks Truvada. You've made my whoring around experience so much more enjoyable!

    It is amazing how some of you are crawling out of the woodworks on this now. Honestly I think that is a good thing because nobody talks about this stuff. For the sake of your SANITY and your lives 10 years from now, please read the statistics I have provided and here is an ALARMING statistic that is very popularly known now if you do a simple search on it... There are dozens of articles on it and the below link is just one of them from a government website. THIRTY percent of HIV positive individuals have chronic kidney disease. Now if you look at this following link it clearly states that chronic kidney disease is very UNCOMMON due to HIV itself but rather the medications. They try to blame some of it on developing diabetes but I regress from that because I don't believe it. HIV only does ONE thing, attack the immune system. I don't care how much in multiplies in the kidneys, it only destroys immune cells.

    GOVERNMENT LINK: http://www.aids.gov/hiv-aids-basics/staying-healthy-with-hiv-aids/potential-related-health-problems/kidney-disease/
