535822 tn?1443980380 I believe that the anti-tobacco movement partially accounts for today's compliant American. Tobacco zealots started out with "reasonable" demands, such as the surgeon general's warning on cigarette packs. Then they demanded nonsmoking sections on airplanes. Emboldened by that success, they demanded no smoking at all on airplanes and then airports and then restaurants and then workplaces -- all in the name of health.
Avatar n tn You touched on a very emotional issue in all hepatitis forums, so keep that in mind when you read through the responses. My hepatologist (liver specialist) allowed light, social drinking both prior to treatment and after treatment but not during treatment. I asked another prominent hepatologist regarding post treatment social drinking and he also said it was OK. I started treatment as a stage 3. Some doctors, however, permit no drinking.
Avatar n tn jp/article/siej/21/1/21_19/_article/-char/ja People who suffer from PATM seem to emit several times more of the following as skin gas than ordinary people. Ammonia, Acetaldehyde, Diacetyl, toluene, Formic acid, benzene These are abundant in tobacco and alcohol, but those who test don't smoke and drink. I want to find a PATM cure. I want to hear your opinion. There may be a solution here from here. My English is very bad. thank you for reading.
233488 tn?1310696703 THE CASE AGAINST EASIER MARIJUANA ACCESS At one time asbestos used in school construction, doctors recommending cigarettes to soothe sore throats and putting cocaine in soft drinks seemed like good ideas. Now we can only wonder, “What were they thinking?” Perhaps we can forgive our forebears because scientific evidence of the cancer causing properties of asbestos and tobacco and the addicting and health destroying nature of cocaine was not in existence at the time.

Avatar f tn Went to Dr. in February for sinobronchitis, took Zpak, didn't help. Then had Keflex, seemed to get better but during sickness, voice went froggy and had to really use effort to speak, now very froggy and high pitched. Cannot sing at all. Is it normal to feel better but still have your voice froggy x 4 months? I do have stuffiness and white drainage daily. I am not a smoker. Any answers?

483733 tn?1326802046 Otherwise he uses the dining room as his changing room, leaves dirty kleenexes everywhere (living room and bedroom), leaves chewed chewing tobacco on the side tables in the living room and bedroom, misses the toilet regularly and doesn't clean up his mouthwash, chewing tobacco and toothpaste (uses too much) in the sink. I am guilty of leaving piles of books/papers and not picking them up as I should. I do all the shopping - he never wants for anything and I pay all the bills.
Avatar n tn Hi, Ammonia that is processed through the liver might be higher in someone with cirrhosis. If the liver is starting to fail, as in cirrhosis, it can no longer clean out the toxins etc. Not everyone is the same, some have high ammonia levels and don't show symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy They will usually give you lactulose to help with hepatic encephalopathy if you show signs of forgetfulness, confusion, unable to concentrate.
Avatar m tn In the last few months tho, I have found it increasingly difficult to go to the toilet, I can never do this without straining, and even when I am finished, I feel I want to go again. Stool is flat and thin and smells like ammonia. I also have pains in my lower abdomen. For 3 months now, I have been feeling pain in my groin and armpits, where the lymphnodes are. My doctor did a blood test and came back with 'low lymphocites'.
233488 tn?1310696703 Marijuana users have higher “driving while intoxicated” convictions than alcohol users. In 2004, during the five years following legalization of cannabis in California, marijuana-related fatal motor vehicle accidents increased. Marijuana use on the job is common and more problematic than alcohol use. Cannabis users have slower reaction times, impaired thinking, reduced levels of alertness and poor memory compared to non-users.
5536514 tn?1373503602 I did find I felt better, when Istill had the Hep C, when I ate artichokes. I also found some improvement in the way I felt, from using fresh tumeric root, sauted, in my food. Right now I have been snacking on sesame seeds, which come organic, in the bin. The light ones and the dark ones, and I grind the flax seeds up in the Vitamix.
Avatar n tn The contestibility period is for two years after that, the policy is incontestible for a death arising out of tobacco use. Keep in mind that there are other circumstances where a life policy does not pay, such as during the commission of a crime.
942290 tn?1252622149 Opium had become a taboo subject for those in circles of learning during the Holy Inquisition. In the eyes of the Inquisition, anything from the East was linked to the Devil. 1500 The Portuguese, while trading along the East China Sea, initiate the smoking of opium. The effects were instantaneous as they discovered but it was a practice the Chinese considered barbaric and subversive.

535822 tn?1443980380 For the first time with economy in my head I went into a 99 cents store, very busy very small aisles, but I was surprised at the items in there all for 99cents a pop. If you look around you can find expensive coffee, oils, spices, soups indeed a whole range of foods one could'nt afford in a regular store. I will be going in again as prices start to rise .try it .
250084 tn?1303311035 In the area of anemia, our immune in tx, etc. (I start Sept. 25th). In all my reading here, I haven't seen much on things we can do to help our blood counts, anemia, immune system, besides drugs. My sister has been off/on chemo for cancer for 7 yrs. (God Bless her! She is my strength in my battle.) and we have done many things to keep her 'built up' and she has actually never needed procrit and so on, and she is in some heavy chemo!

Avatar n tn I had to take 2 water pills plus potassium, Heck I can't even remember all the meds. Even after my bellirubin and ammonia were in normal range, there were others I had to take. I found out 6/03 that there was tx. available now for patients with livers as bad as mine. I'm on week 16 of 24 and no, it hasn't been easy.
Avatar m tn The weird dizzy feeling comes from ammonia in the blood system and its effects on the brain. If it gets bad enough it could cause coma and death. Last time I drink heavily it took me about 3 months to feel better on the medicine called lactulose. I stopped taking the lactulose about two-and-a-half months in and I was ok but I binge drink again in about three months in and I'm in the same bad situation. Even with the lactulose it's been a week and I feel awful. Just dizzy and tired.
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with Hep C in Nov 2007. My liver functions were elevated slightly in 2006. I was blaming it on some meds I had started taking maybe two years prior to that for my heart but when my doc saw that my liver functions had quadrupled from 2006 to 2007, he had me go to a GI doc and that's when we discovered the Hep C. What I'm wondering, is if anyone has noticed that the virus seemed to have become more active when they went through menopause.
Avatar n tn The virus will have destroyed enough liver tissue to make it's function greatly diminished, and the the levels of ammonia in the brain will rise and you will feel like you have alzheimer's at an unexpectedly early age. Many systems in your body will begin to break down. Your sleep will be greatly diminished, your tongue will swell making it hard to breathe at night....you may begin to see veins in your esophagus and elsewhere swell or even burst.....it goes on and on.
Avatar f tn I just seemed to not care and everytime the kids would harp at me about the smoking I would tell them they weren't telling me anything I wasn't telling myself everyday. Cigarettes are more addictive then heroin. Did you know they put ammonia in them in order to give a good buzz when you first inhale? I tried quitting over 25 times and it took dying to finally make it work. Fortunately, at 65, and fast responders I lived. Anyway, back to you.....
Avatar n tn What pompted this search now, is that as I sit here this moment i am in the presence of cherry tobacco. a fresh smell, as though someone was smoking in the same or very next room as myself. The smell has been of different tobacco types at other times. No one in our home smokes.
Avatar n tn I have notice this constant smell which to me is like entering into a room or a car where someone has previously smoked. ie stale tobacco. I dont smoke nor does anyone in my family. I did like an odd cigar quite a few years ago and did smoke cigarettes to a small amount in my youth. I have the smell again today and smelt my sweatshirt to see if some obscure reason the smell came from there but of course it didnt.
Avatar n tn I had troubles with allergies and went to see an ENT which got some X-Rays and put me through repairing a deviated septum and sinus surgery all in one. That was in 1998. I have been through the ringer with my sinuses and infections for quite a while. Seems just when I go to see a new doctor, they get a cat scan and immediately want to do surgery. I have had my MRI’s & Cat scans looked over by internist at Baylor.
233616 tn?1312790796 As long as one kept the dose low, monitored the liver, and watched for lactic acidosis, what would be the harm in trying? arguments in favor or opposed please weigh in, if obese women went from 20% to 60% SVR that should tell us something??
Avatar f tn air and couldn't go back in. It was January, I was in my nightgown, standing in snow trying not to hurl. I ended up sitting in the car for about an hour until she aired her house out. And even then I could still smell it. I got dressed quickly and left. I never stayed at their house again after that when we visited. It was that powerful. I think there might be some sort of genetic link, my 4 year old daughter is the same way. She smells EVERYTHING. poor kid.
