Good luck on your HPT!! Hi nazor82- Wow my second week of the 2ww seems like an eternity away. I'm happy for you that you will know very soon if you are preggers. When do you plan to take a test? Considering this is your third round of Clomid you know what they say - 3rd times a charm!! Sounds like we are all trying for our first, how exciting!!
It obviously is not mentioned in my file??? I was in today for BW/US - a nurse called me back with the results (she is a regular nurse and NOT IVF...??..) - Est=179/Proj=.3/LH=4/FSH= 9 - 19.3 follicle I called back immediately since I missed the call when she left a message. When I called the front desk back to talk to an IVF nurse, I was told to leave it in the IVF mailbox.
One regular strength tablet of acetaminophen may cause damage to a cat’s red blood cells, limiting their ability to carry oxygen. In dogs, acetaminophen leads to liver failure and, in large doses, red blood cell damage. 3) Antidepressants (e.g. Effexor, Cymbalta, Prozac, Lexapro) While these antidepressant drugs are occasionally used in pets, overdoses can lead to serious neurological problems such as sedation, incoordination, tremors and seizures.
If the phenylpropanolamine (PPA) was working but the incontinence returned, hormonally responsive urinary incontinence is still the most likely issue. Proin dosage in dogs is 0.4-0.8mg/pound every 12 hours or twice a day. Some dogs need estrogen replacement therapy. Usually it is possible to use low enough dosages that adverse side effects are unlikely. We never encountered any adverse issues using DES which is also called diethylstilbestrol (DES) for incontinence.
I have been experiencing low testosterone myself and I have read a great deal on the importance of testosterone in the male. My male dog is fixed. He is 3 years old and seems very healthy. But i've begun to worry about his testosterone levels and how it effects his health. Is there a natural way to support my dogs testosterone levels. Any thoughts?
Or neutered pets studied in an affluent city may get more veterinary care, and better care in general, than intact dogs roaming loose in a rural area, so differences between the groups in some disease might be due to factors other than neutering. A good scientific study will try to control for such factors and the authors will identify potential problems with their data.
But after the surgery it only get much, much worse. I was treated for low iron and ferretin levels, but nothing changed. If I do anything physical - walk the dogs, go grocery shopping, etc - I get exhausted and need to take a nap to recover. Yet, the only test that was significant was my cortisol levels. Both tests showed my coritsol levels were too high.
For example, if I am out of balance with my estrogen (even though it is the bioidentical and not the synthetic type) and progesterone (not progestin as we all know by now) I can get into trouble with estrogen excess. But if I am low on Progesterone, my thyroid goes crazy, my cholesterol goes up, and I cease rebuilding bone, I have constant and debilitating brain fog, (although the estrogen and testosterone contribute to clarity of mind) joint pain, soft muscle pains, etc.
My recommendation according to your post is that your dog has Atypical Cushings Disease and Lysodren is currently the preferred treatment to treat this. With 3 days of Lysodren at a low dose your dogs elevated sex hormone levels will reduce. Trilostane will not help as it causes further elevation of sex hormone levels.
Migranes, allergies, anxiety, depression, mental fog, leg cramping, weight struggles. I had it all. The reason I was in estrogen dominance and low on progesterone for years before my hysterectomy for ovarian cancer at age 47 was because I was not always ovulating. There were signs of this....once it was documented by a lab when a sample of my blood was sent in as I was bleeding profusely and needed a D and C . Turns out I had not ovulated at all (they were checking for miscarriage).
Older spayed female dogs often become incontinent and leek urine because they are low in the hormone called estrogen as a result of being spayed. There are several products available that remedy this "leekage"easily which your vet should be able to provide for you. What does your dog weigh? Arthritis and its related pain are greatly improved by keeping your dog lean and eliminating any excess body weight.
) due to the high amount of soy in their diet. Soy is a phytoestrogen which mimics the action of estrogen in the body. Based on this article, my mother decided to try out a product called Phytolife by Blackmores (contains soy phytoestrogens). Within 3 months of taking this product her menopausal symptoms were gone. After 3 years she found she didn't need to take Phytolife anymore. Menopausal symptoms can last from 2 to 10 years.
Actually, I know that from firsthand experience. In 2000 my doc treated my bleeding with that and it got worse and in 2004, I was given a depo shot, which I think is mainly progesterone, and I was already bleeding and it got much, much worse and I had my procedure done early. That was supposed to thin my endometrium beforehand, but all it did is cause a major flooding incident. Anyhow, if anyone knows the answer to this, please let me know and where I might pull the information up from.
I wanna get my kids a puppy but momma says no. I always had dogs growing up and my wife never did. She said she might be willing to in a year or two. I bet your kiddos are loving it. I see you changed your picture along with everyone else. Guess it's time for me to get a facelift too.
I am on metformin for the insulin resistance. I was told that my estrogen level is kinda low which is causing issue still with getting pregnant. I have lost 35 pounds to date since 09/11/08.
When women start to skip ovulation, which can start as early as the early 30's, then progesterone is not produced and if you start skipping ovulation more frequently, you become so low on progesterone...then the estrogen in your system becomes dominant. This can happen even when your estrogen levels are dwindling as in perimenopause. So, even a small amount of estrogen without progesterone to balance it out can cause problems.

Our dog would pee in her sleep, and she was put on Stilbesterol, for estrogen problems. It seemed to work well.
Thanks for the post, AnotherKatie. You made me chuckle w/the comment about your dogs. Ain't it the truth?! In my heart, I want nothing but the best for everyone around me....I'm low key and easy to get along with. But sometimes I open my mouth when I shouldn't and say things that I should maybe not have. Don't laugh at me, but I swear I think that my eyebrows make me look like I'm always mad or something. I'm going to start plucking them a different way from now on!
hot flashes......how am I gonna know if its gonna kill me if I am sleeping b/c I have pretty low bp in the first place.........argggggg Nauty.........
No, you're not nuts.... Rule of thumb for FT4 is about mid range; yours is at 33%. Rule of thumb for FT3 is 50+% of its range; yours is 45%. Your levels aren't "horrible", so it will probably be difficult to get anyone to treat you for thyroid, but a trial dose of thyroid hormone replacement wouldn't hurt and could very well help. Just to make it less expensive, next time you have thyroid blood work, all you really need to get is Free T3 (Triiodothyronine, Free), Free T4 and TSH.
It is in vegetable burgers and hot dogs and is a hidden ingredient in many other foods. And don’t forget soy milk. I've seen it even added in tea bags. The soy used in our country, however, is primarily non-fermented soy in the form of soy-protein isolate and soy milk. It is the non-fermented form of soy that is causing so many of the problems with soy foods. The soy industry would have you believe that Asians eat lots of soy.
It can certainly be alarming for patients, but if it really is just part of the migraine then it should resolve with resolution of the headache. Chocolate as well as nitrites (food preservative found in hot dogs, etc...), sleep deprivation, changes in the menstrual cycle are well-known precipitants. Allergic reaction is possible, but it sounds more like migraine. (keep in mind I have never personally examined you) Talk to your doctors about your symptoms.
high estrogen/low thyroid hormone) *Bright or flickering lights *Cigarette smoke *Dehydration *Low blood sugar *Alcohol most notably beer, red wine and whiskey *Allergies/intolerances (eg: gluten intolerance) *Bright lights, loud noises, and certain odors or perfumes *Physical or emotional stress *Changes in sleep patterns or irregular sleep *Tension headaches *Foods containing tyramine (red wine, smoked fish, figs, aged cheese, chicken livers, and some beans), monosodium glutamate (MSG), nitra
Von Willebrand’s seldom happens in cats but it is very common in various breeds of dogs. In all, some sixty different purebred breeds have been commonly linked to von Willebrand’s with the Doberman Pinscher having the highest incidence. Clinical trials conducted on 15,000 Dobermans showed seventy percent of them were carriers of the disease. Of these 15,000 Dobermans, the majority of them didn’t show clinical signs.
Gas accumulates and along with IBS, there can be acidity and reflux. Pinched nerves, low Vit D, fibromyalgia, low Vit B12 (commonly seen in IBS) can further aggravate existing conditions. You need to consult an endocrine specialist and a gastroenterologist and find a balanced treatment to keep all problems at bay. At present the IBS and gastric reflux could be the most aggravated. Special diet precaution needs to be taken along with omeprazole and antacids for reflux. Take care!
I do know that we have cell receptors for Progesterone in our lungs and in our brains. And, there is information about how if you have low estrogen (because the body is always making estrogen from a by-product in the fat that we have once we have hit menopause) then the receptors for progesterone are sometimes not as available to the progesterone. In other words, estrogen is like the key that keeps the receptors open for progesterone.
By the way, soy isn't estrogenic, it's balancing, meaning in will only produce estrogen in bodies that signal a need for it. That's why the Chinese and Japanese have had no problems, obviously, producing children, which they would if consuming soy and flax limited the male production of testosterone. People consuming soy also wouldn't have prostate cancer, since they'd have low testosterone.
