Avatar m tn I live in Canada (way up north for past 12 years), I rarely eat dairy, never drank milk (even as a child), only recently started eating fatty fish that contain D, avoid the sun, and wear SPF 40 - 60 when I am outdoors. A perfect candidate for low D! So rather than dwell on it and make myself nuts (what's done is done), I'm trying to use what I've learned about Vitamin D to educate those I care about.
Avatar f tn I am 17 years old, Female, roughly 140 pounds, 5'7", and have had a lot of gastrointestinal problems starting a few weeks ago. It started right after I started getting better from what I think was Bronchitis. I was never taken to the doctor for it so I can't really confirm it was bronchitis of a bad sinus infection. I think it may be IBS, but I'd like some more input. Symptoms: -Upset stomach?

Avatar f tn or someplace that she could benefit from for all 3 diseases? She has two young daughters, and tries to keep her spirits up. But that is a task!!
Avatar n tn They removed a 5mm polyp from my colon the diagnosis is Mixed hyperplastic/adenomatous polyp with moderate dysplasia. What exactly does this mean? I was told that I need to do a colonoscopy every year for the rest of my life to ensure that no other polyps or colon cancer develops. Is there any dietary recommendations that could decrease my chance of getting another polyp in my colon or anything else that I should think of.
Avatar n tn I believe that if the ileus takes too long to pass over, then there are drugs that can be administered to re-start the peristaltic action of the remaining intestines. Presumably your uncle is still in hospital - I suggest that he asks the doctors:- - do I have an ileus? - when do you expect it to vanish? - what can you do if it doesn't and at what stage will you take these actions? - why not start them now rather than waiting?
Avatar n tn Which sounded good to me but my surgeon said they were all bad, and some would have developed into cancer sooner or later and being 41 he would assume colon cancer by age 50 was inevitable and to have my children all screened as though they had a first degree relative with colon cancer. I also have an Aunt who had colon cancer and a cousin. Puts my sister in the same boat as my children since she has Celiac and that alone increases the chance for intestinal cancers. It is all so confusing.
Avatar f tn Does ALS usually start distally and work it's way up? As you can probably guess, I'm really worried about ALS! Never heard of mononeuropathy multiplex. I'll check it out. Do you know of any disease/condition that not only involves proximal muscles in the limbs but autonomic dysfunction also?
351724 tn?1267537018 s always best to error on the cautious side with things like this, and it may start to worry her creating a lot of anxiety on top of everything. Has anyone been diagnosed with colon cancer in their 30's or 40's in your family? This is one of the first things a gastro doc will ask you, as there are hereditary colon diseases. I wish I was of more help, but do get this checked out because something is obviously going on. Take care.
Avatar f tn To Ket and Royce, Sometimes a vit D deficiency goes along with fibromyalgia. This can cause problems with your teeth. I would suggest you ask your dr.
Avatar f tn 5mg of entecavir thought will be ok with the treatment but it is getting worse even after i start taking 10K of vitamin D . Is there any one in here the same as my situation & what did you do to get rid of the pain? Appreciate!
Avatar n tn If you are age 40+ then that is the age at which colon cancer can start to develop. If you are younger then the risk of the more sinister diseases is lessened. One if my Wife's uncles delayed seeking medical help for what turned out to be colon cancer and died. Prior to his death the doctors said "If only you had come to see us sooner......". Don't let this happen to you.
Avatar f tn Most terminal illnesses pop up with little to no symptoms. Cervical cancer is one that can strike with absolutely no symptoms, on top of many other diseases. Colon Cancer is no different. So again, talk with your GI and see what they think. Keep us updated on it, Im sure you will be fine.
Avatar f tn I'm currently seeing a Rheumatologist for a possible autoimmune problem. My doctor just prescribed me Cymbalta for my joint and muscle pain and also to possibly help with fatigue. I know that most drugs like this have to be weaned off of once they are stopped, so I'm not sure if I should start on it. My doctor said if my salivary biopsy comes back positive she would start me on Plaquenil and wean me off the Cymbalta.
Avatar n tn Diarrhea appears in actual AIDS (disease), not likely just in infection without the disease. But ther could be other diseases liuke inflammation of the colon. Stool and blood is usually checked first in any case - from there the doctor should tell you what to do.
Avatar n tn Sorry pasq, In all my years I've never heard or read that suggestions regarding colon cleansing. I doubt that is associated with the medical profession. Enemas are normally reserved for evacuating stool or medicated as a treatment for some bowel diseases. I found this from a trusted site: “We used to believe that size was indicative of a problem if the stool was ‘pencil-thin,’” ........ “But recent research indicates that this is actually not true.
Avatar n tn Im a 27 year old male. My mom diagnosed with colon cancer last year (54).. I had a severe constipation 8 month ago with a lower left abdomen pain. The doctor diagnosed me with ulcer after reviewing my x-ray. And mentioned my liver looks swollen. But nothing to worry about. After 3-4 months i started having major problem with constipation, the lower abdomen and decided to see another doctor who suggested i should do colonoscopy and referred me to a GI specialist.
Avatar n tn With colon cancer in your family, a colonoscopy with a GI should go on your standard list of preventive medical procedures. It's usually pretty good at ruling things out and giving peace of mind. 26 is not too young to be proactive with a family history. The procedure is not as alarming as you imagine it to be but can be a bit more pleasant if it can be done in a clinic setting instead of a hospital (they make you wait so long it makes you more nervous).
Avatar f tn I had an upper and colon scope both came out good so Celiac was ruled out along with colon and stomach cancer. I am going to swallow the camera pill this week. What other possibilities are being overlooked?
Avatar m tn I am waiting for my appt with the neourologist and in the meantime have accepted the fact that I am in the 6% of Gluten sensitive people who react neurologically from gluten. I CAN NOT HAVE GLUTEN. The easiest way to avoid it is to avoid flour and sugar, and that is not funny. I have to eat healthy! not fair! There is my husband with a lean pocket and the pancakes, and I had a hanfull of peanuts and a gluten free blueberry bar. (not my 1st choise).
Avatar f tn But all of them are centered around strengthening the immune system, and using antimicrobials to weaken the bacteria so that the immune system can start to deal with them more affectively, and begin to induce recovery in the patient. Just to give an overview of the MP, it was designed by Trevor Marshall, who is a biomedical engineer, who in the seventies developed Sarcoidosis himself.
