The GP told him the consultant will probably tell him he's to have a heart bypass which is worrying him now. Today he came over bad in himself as he has been doing quite a lot, he seems a shadow of his normal self.He gets so fatigued and feels very ill in himself.

Avatar m tn We do our best to to postpone it as long as possible and to live as good a quality of life as we can in the meantime. Some types of heart disease are highly genetic, and lifestyle is a relatively unimportant contributor. Or maybe your parents lived the exact type of lifestyle that led to their heart disease (no offense intended). If your parents' problems seem to have been lifestyle-determined, and you have chosen a different lifestyle, then maybe you are home free.

Avatar f tn Cardiomyopathy is disease of the heart muscle. My friend has cardiomyopathy. The doctor told her that 25% of patients would stay the same, 25% of patients would get better, 25% of patients would get worse, and 25% of patients would need a heart transplant. If the muscle becomes too weak, a heart transplant is needed. If the heart pump is weak, the heart will not pump the blood out to the rest of the organs.

Avatar f tn From what I have read about it, Kikuchi Disease is very rare and usually seen in Japan, although occasionally cases are seen in other countries. It is a self-limiting disease, meaning it goes away and resolves itselv within 1 to 6 months. They give medicines for supportive care to treat symptoms that may present, like taking ibuprofen for fever or the flulike symptoms that are associated with the disease, but antibiotics are not prescribed and the disease goes away on its own.

Avatar f tn When the coke and pepsi factories started mass production in the states, heart disease seemed to increase dramatically. Japan had hardly any heart disease and they were on high protein diets. Scared by reports from other Countries about fat being the culprit, they switched to a high carb diet and now the nation is suffering heart disease, nearly as much as everyone else.
Avatar f tn had open heart surgery and lung disease have to be on h2o
Avatar n tn I noticed I was not constipated anymore (I used to find blood in my stools) and also there was no diariah. My heart has calmed to 1 skip in about every 100. I also eat lightly seasoned fish. I noticed eating "regular" food cooked by others or found in restaurants increases heart skips. I noticed after eating my heart does not beat as fast as opposed to eating "regular" food.
Avatar n tn m not aware of any particular disease that causes rash and twitching. There was one case reported in Japan in which a viral infection (chickenpox virus) affecte the spinal cord causing irritation of the nerves and resultant rash with muscle twitching such as that seen with nerve compression from a bad disc. But that's it. For further evaluation, consider an EMG and neurological exam. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I live in Boston and mostly Japan, where Omacor is not yet on the market. The prescription med in Japan I take (Epadel) by Mochida Pharmaceuticals is supposedly the world's first high-purity ethyl icosapentate --so NO DHA. The doctors here are not up on supplements and simply prescribe Epadel since there is no other product used as a prescription med.

Avatar f tn As noted by Flippinpatty - the Texas Heart Institute is an excellent cardiovascular institute with a number of physicians who specialize in different areas of heart disease. Unfortunately, I do not know anyone personally there for referral. My recommendation is trying to look on their website and identifying any staff who identify hypertrophic CM as one of their specialties or interests. Glad Flippinpatty was able to refer you to a specific individual.
