Avatar n tn Of course for some it is a LOT more expensive, but during his treatment I would rather spend more for my husband to have organic when it's possible. There are lists of foods widely available on the internet that tell you which ones have the highest pesticide residues, so you can selectively buy only those foods organic. Also, we are skipping the high-price convenience foods, so we save that way.

Avatar f tn So I'm posting frantically to let you all know I'm here and TRYING! The newest recommendations I have seen for calling overt diabetes is fasting sugars over 100, so I'm with Jazz. I think you're going to hear that this is diabetes, and they'll begin treatment. What I don't know is how long and at what level you can see the onset of neuropathy. It is definitely not my field, but it seems too early and to little. Be interesting to see what your HgA1c is.
Avatar m tn 51 LogIU/mL Hep B DNA interp - Detected Hep B DNA - IU/mL - 32200 IU/mL I will have my MRI done next week I will revisit my doctor in two weeks and start the antiviral drug treatment.

Avatar n tn In the case of anxiety/panic/phobic neuroses or another comparable anxiety-related disorder, do the benefits outweigh the risks? No, as there simply are no benefits. The atypicals are not indicated for the treatment of anxiety states for a good reason...they are not effective. So, why prescribe them? They are "non-habit forming", unlike the Benzodiazepines. That's actually not true (any psychoactive compund will induce some degree of dependence).
Avatar n tn One recommends it while the other says it's an option but doesn't think it's necessary if getting the treatment will affect my grandmother's quality of life.
