Avatar n tn I am diabetic since 1998, at the time I discovered that I am diabetic the blood level was 450 mg/dl and ketone bodies were +4 out of 5.

Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc. and others containing ephedrine or pnenypropanolamine. Over the counter appetite suppressants which contain propanolamine. Most common nasal decongestants can cause a positive reading for Amphetamines.
Avatar n tn *Stomach ulcer (peptic ulcer) *Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) Action to Take: Take an antacid or acetaminophen if necessary, but avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Don't drink alcohol or smoke. If pain persists or quickly comes back, see your doctor.
Avatar n tn Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe. I have no idea what causes this and both of my siblings report similar type of pain issues. Friends think this is quite strange. As a teenager, everyone called these "growing pains" but I am 30 years old and don't believe this title still applies. Any ideas on possible causes? A friend of mine recommended acupuncture but of course I cringe at the thought of needles.
Avatar n tn , acid, gas, bloat, ibs, possible ulcer and inflamation etc. and its usually when I don't watch and am very bad with my diet (go off the wagon) when I get this and its usually seperated by 6 months or more. But thats me. If you try any of the stuff I have done then I would love to know if any of it helps you but I am no doctor and am not prescribing anything, making any claims and taking no responsibility for any result. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I experiance these same kind of lacerations. The best treatment I have found is Balmex- a kind of skin protectant found in the pharmacy area with diaper rash items. Other similar products containing zinc oxide were recommended by my doctor but cause intolerable itching.
Avatar n tn METHADONE TREATMENT IS NOT FOR THE AVERAGE JUNKIE /ADICTION!!!! PLEASE BEWAREE OF THIS DRUG! IT IS WAY WORSE THAN ANY OTHER DRUG WHEN IT COMES TO DETOXING FROM IT!!! I WAS ON 160 MGS /DAY AND DID A 16 DAY DETOX @ 10 MGS /DAY!!! THE PHYSICAL PAIN WAS UNBERABLE AND THE MENTAL ANGUISH WAS INCONCIEVABLE!!!!!!! PLEASE BEWARE THAT REPLACING VICODIN ADICTION FOR METHADONE ADDICTION HAS TO BE THE DUMBEST **** I HAVE EVER HEARD!!! VICODIN IS SOOOO EASY TO DETOX FROM COMPARED TO METHADONE!!!
Avatar m tn But the thing is if it is due to a mite instead of a bacteria it won't help. You would need a different treatment. So you need a good doctor to do the biopsy and see what is the underlying cause. So that you can get treatment. Maybe the dermatologist that gave you the diagnosis would be willing to do it and send it in to pathology that way you can get treated. At least the skin level. If the cause though is something worse such as lymphoma or leukemia that is another type of treatment.
Avatar n tn Doctors have told me that I need no treatment and that Thallassemia has no symtpoms. I go to sleep tired and I wake up tired. I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
