Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with Hep B in August of 2012 during a hospitalization for Pancreatitis and Gall Bladder all of which share similar symptoms to Hep B. During my 10 day stay in the hospital I found out I had Hep B but was told it appeared that I had it for a long time which I did not understand and still don't today.

Avatar f tn Hi. Dogs are fortunate insofar as they do not respond to sodium in the same way humans do. Ordinarily even high sodium isn't a great concern in dogs (unlike humans, where it has known adverse issues with blood pressure and heart conditions).

High sodium and low sodium levels are best dealt with by alterations to the diet.
Avatar n tn All the physicians and experts that she met told her that it was impossible to be due to the Interferon treatment, but before the treatment, all went well.

280891 tn?1261016650 She went through the chemotherapy and after the doctors told her there was no hope she went to Mexico for nutritional treatment. Problem is she waited too long and at some point the body can no longer heal itself. Diet is why we have an explosion in health care problems and it can only get worse with the things most of the people are eating.

Avatar n tn the acute insomnia is a tough one... i was given 20mg. of ambien to make me sleep and i still barely slept... and then when the ambien did start to work after about a month or so i became dependent on the ambien to keep helping me sleep... but after about three months my psychiatrist took me off of the ambien and within a few weeks i was sleeping independently... it was wonderful to once again be able to put my head on a pillow and fall asleep like a "normal" person!!!

Avatar n tn I realized I was over medicated and found an excellent treatment center in Michigan. I spend 10 days there and I'm doing much better. I learned that if I had stopped cold turkey I could have died. It's be 21 days now and I am still in withdrawal. I take 2 meds to help, but I have a long way to go. My adictionologist says that it can take up to 2 years to feel better, but I should feel better after 1 month and much better after 3 months.
