Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia pictures patients


Avatar m tn Carbohydrates and Fat In the prescribed diets there should be no restriction on carbohydrate intake,[14] even in patients that suffer from diabetes mellitus or belong to the subgroup of patients with insulin resistance. This situation is not rare. In fact, 40–50% of all patients with ESLD suffer from insulin-resistant diabetes mellitus.
Avatar m tn The typical presentation begins with periumbilical pain (pain around belly button) followed by anorexia (lack of appeitite) and nausea. The pain then usually localizes to the right lower quadrant as the inflammatory process progresses to involve the parietal peritoneum overlying the appendix. This classic pattern of migratory pain is the most reliable symptom of acute appendicitis.
568322 tn?1370169040 Because that increases your blood sugar and having elevated blood sugar (and obesity) cause a low grade chronic inflammation. Because it lowers immune system markers. Haven't you noticed how Hep C patients are more prone to catching flu, etc after treatment?
Avatar n tn Patients may have various clinical presentations depending on the region of the GI tract involved and the depth of the bowel wall involvement. The disease most often involves the stomach and the small bowel.
Avatar m tn Intermittent right upper quadrant pain, anorexia and nausea occur less commonly. Chronic hepatitis C infection predisposes patients to the development of diseases involving other organ systems including the kidneys, the skin, eyes, joints, immune system, and the nervous system. There are many extrahepatic manifestations of hepatitis C: some are relatively common (e.g., cryoglobulinemia), whereas others are infrequent and their association with hepatitis C has not been clearly defined.
Avatar f tn In most of the cases the patients had taken their medication at bedtime, usually without enough liquid. Patients often present with severe retrosternal pain and difficulty swallowing. Ulcerations generally resolve within a week after discontinuation of the medication. One case report describes severe hiccups of 4-day duration associated with esophagitis following the first dose of doxycycline. Case reports of doxycycline causing Clostridium difficile have also been described.
1500525 tn?1458533598 (those were his words exactly) Because I have a degenerating spine caused by the Pernicious Anemia (Subacute Combined Degeneration of the Spinal Chord) I have had many pictures of my spine, but nothing in the present except for the c-spine. The Neurosurgeon I saw last did not feel that the spinal degeneration was causing any of my symptoms (stabbing pain in left lung, now right, night sweats, test.
Avatar n tn give me a break. Moderate medicinal MJ use works for anorexia, cystic fibrosis and chemio patients, and several other illnesses and thats it. Don't wanna use it, then don't...
1012964 tn?1251823026 I did not test positive for the HLA-B27 antigen, but the docs all agreed that only a percentage of patients do. Before seeing those doctors I had a whole body bone scan ordered by my family doc because of all the aches and pains (everywhere). It showed abnormal uptake throughout with moderate degenerative changes on almost all my joints in the body, including my zygomatic arch of the skull. Not sure what the skull things about.
459853 tn?1283144114 Joint pain is seen in lupus patients (or other autoimmune diseases). Also Karri (sorry!) - You do not have to have swelling to have lupus...It is NOT a requirement for Dx. SOme patients do have swerlling along with joint pain, but some do not. Many docs are mistaken about this. My docs years ago also would not consider lupus because my joints werent swollen. They said fibro...They did not take me serious until I was swollen....
Avatar n tn 1. (if you're not trying to get off of Valium), use enough Valium in the first few days to make you mostly sleep through the first few (worst days), then taper the dose down to nothing over the next week or less. The Valium will also make you eat like a pig, which will be therapeutic in itself. 2. Take lots of hot baths or Jacuzzis, as many as you can stand. 3. Buy ahead of time name-brand Imodium and take the full dose (two) at every hint of the runs, no mater how slight. 4.
Avatar n tn Yes, its helpful for men in testicular issues, in women with infertility, and has been used in other ways like prevention or lowering painful menses in patients with Endometriosis. There are many agents that have numerous uses, for example benadryll. Its used for allergies, sleep aids, colds...and on and on. Now read my whole next sentence before you fly off at me...hcg will not make you lose weight.
Avatar f tn I learned a lot about how the body works when fasting or on a VLCD (very low Calorie Diet). The center I'm referring to only takes patients with Medical conditions to correct. I was defintely one of those, severe case of RA (Rhuematoid Arthritis), but I also lost 16 lbs. Lost 19 lbs while fasting but gained 3 back during the re-feeding process (something they require before releasing you). AS long as you have 'extra fat cells', you are not 'starving'.
Avatar f tn You should try cannabis it may not legal but its the best way. Its used in some countrys to treat anorexia and nausea (suffered by aids and chemotherapy patients). Cannabis is one of the worlds greatest medicines and can be used to treat hundreds of illnesses.
Avatar f tn in fact, a well known symptom of malnutrition is a protruding tummy - just think of pictures of children you see from other countries who are starving and how their tummies stick out. Not eating enough or not getting the right nutrients can cause your periods to be late or nonexistent. It can also cause stabbing pains. For someone your height with medium build, you are about the perfect weight. I think you should be proud of yourself for being able to maintain your weight.
Avatar f tn I still lose hair, but not to the volume that I had, but I don't have that volume to lose. I remember looking for posts on hair loss for topamax patients last year and no one reported it. I was wondering if I was the only one. Thanks for your posts.
551343 tn?1506834118 HOWEVER, we suffered through limbo because the neurologist I was with for years, whom I trusted, subscribed to the archaic notion that patients should not be told and didn't tell us. We have since discovered that this was a common scenario decades ago but, unbelievably, is still happening today and not just to us. Years and years of limbo ensued as we fought to discover what the cause of my problems were and we were repeatedly turned away by the very people who were supposed to help us.
Avatar n tn Pharma companies do not want it to be known to the patients nor the docs if the can divert them from that conversation. I used to be a pharma rep and we dance and hem hawed all over the place when there was some quetion going that you knew was not going to end well in our favor. I will be getting the starting pack for Effexor from my doctor's office tomorrw, so wish me luck! I was able to come off of Paxil CR fairly easily. Let's hope the EF is just as simple....yea, right!!
Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
Avatar n tn She said that not only will it help my PCOS (which I knew) but that she had had really good results in her patients with weight loss so I'm willing to give it another try... Fingers crossed!
Avatar n tn He looked at me like I was making stuff up and told me that it is impossible for a skull to have an indentation because it is too hard. He laughed and told me to take pictures of it or immediately come in when it appears again. I know that I never had it before. I did get thrown off my horse when I was 18 and landed on the back of my head on asphault but really do not think his has any thing to do with the accident.
Avatar n tn I had an ABlation Procedure done on January 26, 2010 & since then I have had several A-Fib episodes one which lasted from last Friday 2/5 @ 8:30 pm until Monday 2/8 when I went into NSR @ 11:20am. I went to ER on Sunday night as I was getting real dizzy & my blood pressure seemed to be getting lower & lower. They put me on an Amiodarone IV drip kept me until Tuesday morning & during my stay gave me Amiodarone orally, digoxin which I am still taking.
Avatar n tn I lost 50 pounds on my own when I got better and was no longer confined to bed and a wheelchair but since my metabolism has turned off I am now seeing a Dr. who speacializes in treating patients with Topamax for weight loss. He started me at 25mg for the first week then 50mg the second week and now I am on 100 mg. I have been doing this for 10 weeks and have lost 36 pounds. The first week I started the Topamax my brain was really foggy but my body adjusted.
