Avatar m tn tests have only been in use for less than a decade, and some doctors are resistant to using them, preferring to do things the way they have always been done. You can either run a Free T4 and Free T3, or you can run four older tests designed to almost show as clear a picture after some educated guessing is done by the doctor. Free T3 is run less often than Free T4 for several reasons. It costs more. It takes longer to get the results back. It often shows the same result as the Free T4.
Avatar n tn She closely monitors me and there's meds for that. My humble advice to you is, run as far as you can from your current doctor. You can look online for endocrinologist's ratings and patient satisfaction ratings. Do research on different doctors and if you don't like the next one, try another one.

Chloride is reformed into hydrochloric acid in the stomach to assist in the digestion of food.

Avatar n tn I don't know much about this at all, but the only advice i can give you is please see another doctor. You aren't getting proper treatment, and obviously no answers. See if you can find a better doctor, or atleast one who will tell you what's going on. Or maybe even take all of this information to the Hospital or ER and ask them about it. I hope things look up for you and you find out what's going on..
Avatar f tn If you decide to get it you can ask them what their requirements are and I can help some too. If you are positive I''ll let you know more about the treatment.

Avatar n tn However, if, in the days until you can see a doctor and you have the same signs of weakness and symptoms of arm pain or tingling, (or sluring of speech/blurry vision) you should immediately dial 911 to the local EMS unit to bring you to an ER.

Avatar f tn - I don't know if this is the case for you? Have you tried 'mebendazol' tablets - you can ask a pharmacist about them - not sure they treat all types of human worms - they are o.k. for children to take so I shouldn't think there would be any risk to your health or anything. You said that some of your symptoms improved whilst taking antibiotics - have you discussed this further with your doctor? Have you looked into possible vitamin/mineral deficienies?

1524673 tn?1327845100 They should give you a days worth of food, or tell you what they are feeding so you can purchase it. Before you go switching your puppies brand of food you need to do it very very slowly, first few days add about 1/3 cup of the new with what the breeder gives you/ or you purchase and than increase it to the amount you should be feeding. Mastiff's are very very large breed dog's and need a well balanced diet.

Avatar f tn aspx If you feel that the definition of Ankylosis Spondylitis sounds like what you are experiencing, I suggest you find a doctor that can test you for it. There are very specific tests for it. It is rather rare and many doctors haven't even heard of the disease. Good luck and I hope you find the answers and cure you need. p.s. I still have not found out what is causing my problems even after having all kinds of tests done.
Avatar f tn or wherever you are or can get to, you may find some leads to a Lyme specialist. LLMD is NOT an official title and is used only among us patients to denote an MD who things progressive thoughts about Lyme. No doc calls him/herself an LLMD. Also you could send an email to contact [at] ilads [dot] org and request a referral to an LLMD in your area. That is the main organization for LLMDs. Their website also has information about Lyme research and diagnosis.
