Avatar m tn I believe Xolair is FDA approved as an injectible treatment for asthma. Clinical trials for treatment of chronic idiopathic urticaria are happening in a few medical centres in the United States and Europe. I am surprised that your allergist would not be able to provide you with information on its availability and FDA status.

Avatar m tn Your state in your thread in the Lymphoma forum you had swollen glands from 6 months ago, while your UPSI was 4 months ago so the chances are it is not HIV causing your swollen nodes. Diabetes does not have an effect on seroconversion time. PEP slows down viral replication so can have an effect on seroconversion time. Are you a diagnosed Diabetic, with type 1 or 2? It's pointless trying to determine if you have HIV from symptoms.

I have been reading a lot about telehealth in the press and that the trail has been with diabetes, does the system work? anybody got any experience.
18064853 tn?1462866637 In 1998, the first oral tablet treatment for erectile dysfunction was made available. Since then, Viagra has gone on to become one of the fastest-selling drugs of all time, with over 23 million prescriptions for the pill being issued since its release by manufacturers Pfizer. For many men, drugs such as this one have become something of a go-to item when they experience problems achieving and keeping an erection. However, prescription treatments like Viagra are not suitable for everyone.
3164165 tn?1345337594 We hear from many of our UK members that they have a hard time getting adequate testing/treatment, due to the NHS guidelines, which allow only for TSH and sometimes, Free T4. Some members have had to go private in order to get testing. I think there's also a way to get your doctor to request special treatment -- but of course, the doctor has to believe you need it. You may have to find a different doctor, who will be willing to go out on a limb for you.
Avatar f tn No new range as yet that reflects in any thyroid guidelines from legit thyroid sources as listed below. The above is for already diagnosed and treated patients. PER: AACE Thyroid Guidlines ENDOCRINE PRACTICE Vol 8 No. 6 464 page 9 November/December 2002/2006 - Clinical Implications of the New TSH Reference August 15, 2006 Presentation: "TSH between 0.5 and 2.5-3.0 mIU/L is the recommended target for L-T4 replacement dose adjustment.
Avatar m tn I do, however, continue to recommend 162 milligrams daily (two low-dose aspirin) to patients who already have coronary heart disease, have already had a heart attack or stroke, or who are at high or moderate risk for one and not at risk for gastrointestinal bleeding. In addition, I now follow the recently revised American Diabetes Association guidelines for aspirin use in people with diabetes.
Avatar f tn No routine levothyroxine treatment for patients with TSH levels between 4.5 and 10 mIU/L, but thyroid function tests should be repeated at 6- to 12-month intervals to monitor for improvement or worsening in TSH level. Early levothyroxine therapy does not alter the natural history of the disease,......... TSH Higher Than 10 mIU/L Hypothyroidism Levothyroxine therapy is reasonable.
Avatar f tn -) Some of the new meds have gone thro' trials for genotype 2 - with an even better response than type 1, even in those who haven't succeeded with 1 round of treatment. But like I said, NICE (which has to approve any drug in the UK before anyone can prescribe it on the NHS) won't approve for at least 3-5 years by my reckoning. If, indeed it is recommended, as they base approval on '(financial) cost of quality of life' amongst other things.
Avatar f tn My father had two courses in the UK, (there are some UK people on this site) It saved his life completely. It worked very effectively for him, he was psychotic from schizophrenia, with a later diagnoses of bipolar added on top. My mother saw it completely work for him, he was so much better after it and there is no point in aking if he had short term memory loss as in the preceeding weeks he didnt know who he was. He did not have any long tem memory loss.

Avatar m tn Dr. Jose Gonzalez-Garcia, MD, MBBS, LMS, MRCP(UK), MRCGP, PhD However current "UK guidelines still recommend to have a final test at 12 weeks for it to be considered final and fully conclusive.

Avatar m tn I’m currently with the a Hospital with the UK but am looking for expert treatment elsewhere. I’m read about the BAC (Borreliose Centrum Augsburg) clinic in Germany and they present themselves well and appear to have an excellent expertise in treating Lyme and attend / host ILADS conferences.
Avatar m tn Are you by any chance in U.K or Canada under guidelines of NHS? Do you know if the T3 and T4 are Free T3 and Free T4 or if they are Total T3 and Total T4? Tests for Frees and Totals are not the same thing and don't give the same information. That said, it's recommended that Free T4 be maintained at or about mid range; your T4 is at 43% of its range, so it's somewhat short of the recommended level.
Avatar f tn You obviously need a good thyroid doctor. By that I mean one that will treat you clinically by testing and adjusting Free T3 and Free T4 as necessary to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels. You can get some good insight into clinical treatment from this letter written by a good thyroid doctor for patients that he sometimes consults with after initial tests and evaluation.
Avatar f tn It has become more of a chronic disease that can be controlled with proper treatment (in a way, like diabetes). You can live a long life with this infection. I also wanted to point out that HIV and AIDS are 2 different conditions. AIDS is a syndrome that occurs once HIV has depleted your immune system to the point where you begin to have opportunistic infections. HIV, if treated, doesn't have to progress to AIDS. Get checked out, and take care of yourself.
Avatar f tn I'm a CL on a couple other forums and we routinely run across patients in UK who can't get certain tests or treatment due to NHS guidelines. We, also, recently had one from B.C. who was denied treatment, because lab results were "in range", even though they were totally inadequate and in spite of very severe symptoms. Of the ones we see in UK, many of them have to go private; those that can't afford to, stay sick.
Avatar n tn The CDC guidelines to cover the window period is 3 months and I'm pretty sure that the UK Dept of Health (Health Ministry? Sorry, don't know the exact name) states the same! Therefore, if someone TRULY had a risk, then a person needs to test out to 3 months JUST to cover all possible scenarios to be sure. It is true that most people who have been infected will test POS much sooner than 3 months....
Avatar m tn I'd be more inclined to believe them if the CDC changed there guidelines as well, but they still say three months is conclusive. 6 weeks / 3 months / 6 months, the information needs and overhaul, if oral is not a risk the CDC should say so. I understand the doctors work from unique first hand experience & a great deal of knowledge.
Avatar m tn Hi Nan, My insurance provider, Bupa International, seems to be referring to UK or WHO guidelines, while my doc showed me US guidelines. So I will appeal on several grounds.
Avatar n tn And visa versa. Diagnose level should not be that of treatment level. Subclinical: TSH of 4.5 to 10: No routine levothyroxine TSH Higher Than 10 mIU/L Hypothyroidism Levothyroxine therapy is reasonable or TSH levels between 5 and 10 ccIU/mL in conjunction with goiter or positive anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies (or both). PER: AACE Thyroid Guidlines ENDOCRINE PRACTICE Vol 8 No.
181575 tn?1250202386 Current treatment of HIV infection is based on creating a high genetic barrier to resistance. ... Current guidelines for initial treatment of patients with HIV infection reflect that view by recommending a combination of 3 or more agents from different classes having different mechanisms of action. ... Although data are not available for all antiviral agents used to treat HBV infection, it is becoming clear that single-drug therapy may not provide a sufficiently high barrier to resistance.
