ITEM: CLIFF FLOYD HAS KIDNEY CONCERNS This is scary stuff: {Floyd is scheduled for an ultrasound of his kidneys today after a team physical revealed above-normal creatinine and blood urea-nitrogen levels - two early indicators of renal failure. Floyd won't know the results until Wednesday, when he returns to see a local specialist. But he's already developed high blood pressure and high cholesterol, two more genetic markers from his father, and Floyd said there is blood in his urine. The doctor also warned him yesterday that it's time to make significant changes in his diet. } Hopefully Floyd can get this treated with medication and that is does not turn into something worse. Forget the baseball aspect, hopefully Cliff will get great care to live a long life. http://www.newsday.com/sports/printedition/ny-spmets094655491mar09,0,4225544.story?coll=ny-sports-print < |
