I was put on the 10 estrogen patch. Does anyone have experience on the estrogen patch Vivelle-Dot, and if so did you like it? How long was your adjustment period if you had surgical menopause and was put on an estrogen supplement? I do have, what I believe might be mild hot flashes..I feel like I'm hot and I'm running a fever but I'm not.
Those are drugs that were primarily given to post chemo breast cancer patients since breast cancer is usually estrogen related. The correlation between breast cancer and estrogen related ovarian cancer is being studied, and the theory is if they work for breast cancer patients, they may work for estrogen related ovarian cancer, as well. For me, Aromasin has kept my cancer stable for the last 9 months.
I had about 90% of the symptoms for deficiency. I get my skips the worst 7-10 days before my period. I read in that book that estrogen and progesterone deplete mag as well as adrenaline, cortisol (stress) and beta blockers (which I have been taking for 7 years). I also learned that spinach has a chemical in it that stops the absorption of mag and I was eating about 6 cups per day!! No more.
And interestingly enough, estrogen and progesterone as well as cortisol and adrenaline all deplete a person of Mag. Beta blockers also do this and I have been on them for 8 years. Anyway, so I wanted to try the taurate (which was actually suggested to me when I called in to a radio show with Dr. Ron Hoffman called Health Talk LOL) to see if they could improve even more around my time of the month. I was always taught that Mag needed to be taken with Calcuim in a cal/mag ratio of 2:1.
a ct scan in the er was the only thing that found it.....spent 6 days in hospital on morphine and warfarin, discharged on warfin and pain meds, but would like to know how long it is going to take till i feel better.......
Hi I recently suffered a massive blood clot in both lungs and in right leg as a result of estrogen therapy put on for an ovarian disorder. I am usually always using natural health and I was biking over 10 miles each day, walking, lifting weights and very healthy and strong when this occured. Therefore it was easy to establish the estrogen as the cause. They of course put me on massive blood thinners right away in the emergency room and I have been on them for two weeks.
-not ovulating and therefore having excess estrogen and not enough progesterone -other hormonal imbalances such as thyroid or an excess of the milk hormone, prolactin -fibroids which cause heavier periods but not bleeding in between periods -benign polyps of the cervix and uterus -cervical or vaginal cancer -endometrial cancer -a bleeding disorder either from taking an anticoagulant like warfarin or due to illness such as leukemia the work up includes pelvic exam pap smear endometrial biopsy p
On a good note, I had a follow-up scan of my leg with the DVT and it had resolved itself, so I could quit the warfarin and now I can take Alleve when necessary for any pain!!! Just before Christmas my sinus allergies came back with a vengeance! I couldn't quit sneezing and blowing my nose each morning. I then thought that just maybe my back pain could have resulted from the generic Cytomel, as I had stopped taking it shortly before stopping the Zyrtec.
instead of hormone replacement Therapy for last 3 years.Vascofem Copies Estrogen. (Contains natural ingredients and Vit. C.)Lately have a thick vericose vein on the side of my knee which sometimes are painfull, especially at night.A few days ago my two big toe-nails suddenly went blue and feels cold.Looks like blood under the nail. What is wrong?
I do not know whether Evista will promote Estrogen !! I cannot get to other forum because of the daily quota for new questions and help. Hopefully I can pose this question to Dr.Ann Kathryn one of these days. Thanks.
People who have the Factor V Leiden mutation are at somewhat higher than average risk for a type of clot that forms in veins, such as the deep veins of the legs (deep venous thrombosis), or a clot that travels through the bloodstream and lodges in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). However, most people with the Factor V Leiden mutation never develop abnormal blood clots.
In light of the fact that I am currently UND and have no virus, the reversal of fatty liver and less necrosis and less HCC all sounds very appealing, not to mention any reduction in IR would mean ones own Interferon response would be better post tx. and this alone may increase ones chances of an SVR even if begun at the end of an SOC regime. Perhaps now, more than any other time it could help insure one will recognize any lingering HCV and seek and destroy as designed.
Sorry, I meant for 15 years, no bleedings.
I tried Tecfedera for 6 months and it was wonderful but I developed an allergy. =( My doctor gave me information on Gilenya and Plegridy. Plegridy would probably do to me just like the other injections did, fluish all of the time. Gilenya just looks plain scary. Just not sure.....
It certainly makes sense to use things that have a proven benifit to humans in a carefully controlled way and be able to lower the dose of warfarin as much as possible and avoid warfarin poisoning. I have been hospitolized from this. Not fun. The thing is to be informed and make changes slowly in a controlled way and then stay consistant. That means using the same product from the same company every day just like the warfarin is being used.
Also, there are specific medical conditions that may increase your risk of developing a DVT via these three mechanisms, such as congestive heart failure, severe obesity, chronic respiratory failure, a history of smoking, varicose veins, pregnancy and estrogen treatment. If you are concerned that you may be at risk due to any of these conditions, please consult with your physician.
(Am currently on Lovenox and will be switching back to warfarin soon.) Am presently trying 50MG Tramadol (one every six hours) to try and abort this current migraine, but it doesn't seem to help much. I generally do avoid what you've mentioned. Is there a different med that might work better than the Tramadol? Thanks for the feedback!
I had a long flight in nov 08 and I was on estrogen therapy as well as smoking (bad habit I know) and by long flight I mean, comming home from Iraq and wearing combat boots the entire time. I ended up in the hospital with 3 blood clots in my lungs. 2 in my left and 1 in the right. I currently take approx 75mg of warfarin a week I rarely eat leafy green veges. So much so that they have had to put me on iron pills for anemia.
I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
And, Feverfew should not be taken along with medications that thin the blood such as warfarin (heart medication), or Aspirin or NSAIDS unless your doctor has prescribed you Feverfew and knows you are taking such medications. In the case of Warfarin, if a doctor were to prescribe Feverfew I would still highly suggest consulting a second source such as another doctor (the prescribing doctor for the warfarin) or a pharmacist prior to starting the Feverfew if on a medication like Warfarin.
I have Sjoegren's syndrome and cervical dystonia. The latest diagnosis is too thick endometrium. I am using 25 mcg estrogen and every second month progesterone (Terolut). When I on January 6 2013 was in the Emergency unit, my red cell count was 5.52, hemoglobin 153 and hematocrit 0.45. Na+ was 146 (137-144 normal!), fP-gluc 6,6 (!, no diabetes). I think that I was dehydrated. My dehydration may be due to partial diabetes insipidus, hyperparathyroidism, or vitamin D.
Get on a bio identical estrogen patch, your doctor can prescibe that, it's a much safer and better tolerated estrogen, and FDA approved. Why are you on it? Do you still have your uterus? You need bio identical progesterone (NOT synthetic progestin, that too is cr*p) to protect your uterus if you do still have it. Go to CBS.com, they did a big story on it yesterday, lots of reading.
After surgery they had to do surgery again because the doctor didnt finish closing everything and I started bleeding. I had to have 2 blood transfusions. A couple of days later I was in ICU with a blood clot in my lung. I had to take coumadin for a couple of months. I have since recovered. Before my hysterectomy i was taking bio-identical hormones. Since my hysterectomy I have not taken any hormones.
Flaxseed is rich with the plant form of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, which contain both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities, plus soluble and insoluble fiber. Flaxseed seems to help not only with a person’s cholesterol profile but even in maintaining heart rhythm. Organic grape juice, apples, and other foods that contain pectin help eliminate cholesterol through the gut. Garlic has a mild effect as well.
Some estrogen pills include conjugated equine estrogens (Premarin), ethinyl estradiol, estradiol, and others. Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) interacts with SOY Some types of cancer are affected by hormones in the body. Estrogen-sensitive cancers are cancers that are affected by estrogen levels in the body. Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is used to help treat and prevent these types of cancer. Soy seems to also affect estrogen levels in the body.
I have hypothyroidism, and am totally in menopause. I have been on several estrogen types, up and down the dosage levels, with no relief. I have been up and down the dosage for my thyroid also. Thyroid tests show it is ok. My doctor's refuse to check for anything other than the usual stuff, menopause and low thyroid. I wish I could find a doctor who knows how to think outside of the box and fix me! It's very uncomfortable being in my skin.
Ive written many times..about my mom with Invasive Lobular Carcinoma stage 3. Had mastectomy mid October. Its just been one mess after another. Her oncologist says she is a rare case. She had PET scan, which was clean except for a hot spot on lung. Soo..had CAT scan last Tues. THAT ...showed blood clots in both lungs! Surprise to everyone. They quickly got treatment started for that--but also wanted to do lung biopsy. This has been so horrible. She had lung biopsy.
They say it looks like it might have been there for years. Its quite big about 7cm plus diameter and it is ER positive and the doctor will prescribe an estrogen supressing drug to see if it shrinks. That's some good news. She's got permanent Atrial fibrillation and they said chemo can interfere with the heart. He's arranged for a cat scan next Monday to see if it's spread and will start treatment after that.Takes about 3 - 4 hours the nurse said and is the full body scan.
I will be on Warfarin possibly for the rest of my life and will be at an increased risk for stroke and heart attack for the rest of my life. If you know anyone taking this drug, please warn them. I thought that this couldn't happen to me as well!!
I am 57 years old. I am on warfarin for my heart. My husband passed away in December, my Father passed away in February, my mother had to go to nursing home in March for advanced dementia. I thought I had gone thru menopause several years ago. When I was young I did not have periods for months at a time and doctor put me on birth control pills. Three years ago, I had several periods, doctor did biopsy of uterus and it was fine. Now after another three years, I am having periods again.
