Avatar n tn I've done 5 hpts in the last week. I'm totally obsessing too. I'm never late and all of them are false. Called the doctor and he said to wait until after the weekend and if still no period, he'll do a blood test.

Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by infection with the hepatis C virus (HCV), which is spread through contact in some way with contaminated blood.
Avatar n tn This was all comforting, since I have been developing a lot of other symptoms lately, and being the research junkie that I am, I was finding conditions matching my symptoms ranging from diabetes to cancer, and many things in between. Happily, the tests ruled out any of these conditions, and it is likely that just the anxiety from this one condition is causing all these other symptoms, each one compounding the anxiety, mimicking even more conditions.
Avatar m tn According to a report in Science Daily, a new Canadian study shows that children exposed to high concentrations of manganese in drinking water performed worse on tests of intellectual functioning than children with lower exposures.

Avatar n tn The best way to describe the sound is like a stomach growling, only in the throat. It's incredibly embarrassing and I can't prevent it from happening. It tends to happen a lot after I drink juice or soda, but also sometimes after meals where I only drank water. Along with the gurgle I feel some light pressure in my lower throat, near my collarbone, like there's air trying to get out (no pain).
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes.

Avatar n tn I had my third child about 9 months ago and had had some trouble with varicose and spider veins in the pregnancy and now after. I called the cardiologist that looked at my veins previosly and asked her nurse about it today. She was clueless. She thought that it sounded like hormones and a hot flash. But that sounds weird in the leg. She said that a clot would most likely be bulging and painful. I am going to try the B vitamin, and if that doesn't work I will get some tests run.
Avatar n tn I really didn't cramp right after the iui but I did start cramping that evening I have been cramping on and off since sometimes it more like ovulation pains in my right ovaryIi go back this Thursday 14th for pregnancy test.But at other times it's like menstral cramp.Then at other times there is no cramping at all.I do pray that this one is it.I believe that maybe I'm where I'm at because God needed me to be there.
Avatar m tn It is not uncommon for me to get a pinched nerve, and I certainly have poor circulation. I blame it on hypoglycemia. Diabetes runs in my family. So why does the vitamin supplement help me? I wonder if the vitamin supplementation helps with circulation? But this thing about killing watches intrigues me further. I have found few watches that I can wear because I kill them so quickly. Could this all be related?
10947 tn?1281407852 Statistics say that almost half of all the pregnancies (about 3 million) in the United States are unplanned - one of the highest rates in the developed world.

Avatar n tn It has a positive inotropic action on cardiac tissue, and has been shown in some studies to lower blood pressure. In part, the cardiac effects of taurine are probably due to its ability to protect the heart from the adverse effects of either excessive or inadequate calcium ion (Ca2+) levels. The consequence of Ca2+ excess is the accumulation of intracellular calcium, ultimately leading to cellular death.
483733 tn?1326802046 I got this in an email and thought I'd share it. I realized a few years ago that any artificial sweeteners made me feel sick and caused headaches. This could be why. SWEET POISON! A MUST READ! In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

Because of the potential danger of H1N1 in pregnancy, CDC strongly recommends treatment of pregnant women with an ILI. Folks with with ILI should stay home and isolate themselves as much as possible.
Avatar m tn However, the committee appeared to have a bias of excluding RCTs on such outcomes as cancer and influenza incidence and effects during pregnancy that were not in line with its eventual recommendations. The only benefit the committee found for vitamin D was for bone health. The committee recommended 600 IU/d vitamin D and a serum 25(OH)D concentration (a precursor to the active form of vitamin D) of 20 ng/ml (50 nmol/l) for those aged 1-70 years, and 800 IU/d for those 71 years or older.

Avatar f tn Below is the article I found. Some is good but too much is bad. Your prenatal level of vitamin D may play a role in determining your health later in life. Sound far fetched? It may not be. During pregnancy, the active form of vitamin D increases significantly, particularly in the second and third trimesters. During this time, the baby's bones are developing, as are the brain, the nervous system, and the other organs.
666151 tn?1311117976 another form of the medication, Subutex, consists of buprenorphine without naloxone. In this article I will use the name ‘Suboxone’ because of the common reference to the drug, but in all cases I am referring to the use and actions of buprenorphine in either form. The unique effects of buprenorphine can be attributed to the drug’s unique molecular properties.
Avatar m tn beta-glucan may help limit the rise in blood sugar that occurs after a meal. This could, in theory, offer heart-healthy benefits, especially in people with diabetes. The other primary proposed use of beta-glucan products involves effects on the immune system. in humans suggest that beta-glucans can alter various measurements of immune function. In the alternative medicine literature, these effects are commonly summarized as indicating that beta-glucan is an "immune stimulant.
Avatar f tn 8 eot) and my platelets are finally back in the normal range, I am breathing an enormous sigh of relief. A large part of this Tx stress, is the waiting game. So many people have no idea what we have to go thru. of course I want to thank all of you for being on here, to help all of us, on a daily, and even hourly basis. My legs still feel a bit weak, when I go to stand up from a low chair, and I am still a bit rippley (flabby) looking, but Rome wasn't built in a day.

It is now known that Omega 3 actually plays a large role in the development and growth of your baby when it is in your uterus.
Avatar m tn These data support a connection between HCV replication and insulin resistance, and HOMA decreased when the virus was eradicated. Besides, the incidence of diabetes type 2 is different in cured patients than in non-responders, supporting a better control of insulin resistance after hepatitis C virus clearance[13]. Thus, measure insulin resistance seems to be easier and comfortable than study steatosis in a liver biopsy.

In one large test, 12.5% of 152 patients with POTS reported a family history of orthostatic intolerance, suggesting that there is a genetic inheritance associated with POTS. So far no one has provided an explanation for POTS which is applicable to all sufferers, however there are many theories; Alpha-receptor dysfunction may be occurring in some POTS patients.

Avatar f tn They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous. Was also diagnosed with HepC in 11/07, and the blood results were that it was so low it was undectable. Also had a liver biopsy in May 08, but did not get results back yet.Add high blood pressure and high cholesterol to that.
Avatar f tn A GP can do that too, but you have this other issue that is beyond your GP, so I would suggest seeing an endo that does a lot of thyroid work. Some Endo's specialize in diabetes. Ask around and find a thyroid doctor. You may be able to get some help with a referral from your GP, if he/she knows a good Endo. Some Endo's require a refferal from a doctor, some do not. Maybe you will end up finding an Endo with a good reputation and then your GP will contact them and reffer you.
