Avatar n tn You should follow your doctor's advice and take the angiogram, but I also have a feeling that it CAN be clean. There may be a lot of causes for ST depression but it's slightly concerning that it happens at high heart rate. A virus affecting the heart would usually cause diffuse ST elevations during rest (I think) and probably a lot of PVCs during exercise. Important questions: How high were you able to push your systolic BP during the stress test (in this case, high is actually not bad..)?
560272 tn?1311353893 I'm in denial about the weight too and about the anxiety/depression, it's REALLY hard for me to believe that anxiety/depression/obesity can really make a person feel this terrible on a daily basis for years.
Avatar m tn Dear Medical Community, I am a 43 yrs old guy diagnosed with severed depression and anxiety. I believe my depression could be related to metabolism or fatty liver.

No focal lesions in the spleen, gallblader, addrenal glands, pancreas or kidneys. No renal, ureteral or bladder calculi. No hydornefrosis.

Avatar f tn My daughter is a cosmetologist and she told me the topo causes the hair follicles to close. What has fallen out, wont grow back, but the hair loss should stop when you discontinue the drug. The Topo really messed up my cycle too. I think my adrenals took a hard hit from just two weeks on the drug. For me it was not worth it. I was stupid, depressed and started having panic attacks on it. I would loose blocks of time. Huge blocks.

921323 tn?1268679412 If we had done the same for cholesterol medications or diabetes medications, or even smoking patches and pills, we’d be paying for it in countless ways. So is there something unique about developing medications for obesity? Obesity is considered by many to be purely a “lifestyle” disease, and some are biased against the obese as a result.
Avatar f tn delivering significant weight loss without risky side effects. With U.S. obesity rates nearing 35 percent of the adult population, expectations are high for the first new prescription drug therapies to emerge in more than a decade. Even a modestly effective drug has blockbuster potential. None of the three medicines represents a breakthrough in research. Drugmakers have made little headway in understanding and treating the causes of overeating.

Avatar dr m tn The same can be said for almost every medication out there that targets specific biochemical markers, such as for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and depression. Researchers are so caught up linking biochemical markers for various disorders, that somehow, the words "linking" or "associated with" slowly morphs into "causes." So then the search goes on to lower or eradicate this particular marker, thinking that this will somehow get rid of the disease.
Avatar dr m tn Not too surprisingly, the same can be said for depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Admittedly, ADHD is a multifaceted condition. Sometimes, it’s mainly due to one condition, and in other cases, from a combination of different causes. Not breathing well at night while sleeping can present with the same clinical symptoms as toxic contamination such as lead poisoning.
