605893 tn?1220181685 Hello jaybird1959, Yes, it is likely the osteoporosis can be all over the spine. Osteoporosis is a disease of bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis the bone mineral density is reduced, bone microarchitecture is disrupted, and the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone is altered.
Avatar m tn You seem to be having a variety of problems but they may have a single cause behind that. The symptoms could be due to compression of multiple spinal nerves, Vit B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, anemia, vaso-vagal attack, low testosterone, lupus and other autoimmune disorders, heavy metal poisoning, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, diabetes and panic attack. It can also be a type of seizure. If there is a headache then it can be benign intracranial hypertension too.
Avatar f tn Likewise management falls into palliative care like pain management/ physiotherapy and interventional/ surgical options. Leg cramps may or may not be related to this and could develop from a variety of other causes as well. At this stage it would be best to get yourself evaluated by an orthopedician. After an evaluation, it can be decided upon what form of treatment would suit you the best and a management plan can be initiated accordingly. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar m tn A hematoma is formed because of blood trapped in tissues. This blood may need to be drained. Less commonly, it may develop calcium deposits at the injury site and this may need further evaluation. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Hello. Your symptoms are a bit different from those of Alzheimer's disease. It seems that you may be having episodes of low blood pressure or hypoglycemia. During such episodes, the brain receives less blood, oxygen and glucose, leading to symptoms experienced by you. You can consult a family physician; get a full system check up, routine blood work, blood pressure monitoring and blood sugar levels. Do not worry too much about Alzheimer's disease.
Avatar m tn In the event of calcification, it is not particularly a high calcium level that results in the formation of a stone or spur, but calcium being high in ratio to magnesium." - Calcification and Its Treatment with Magnesium and Sodium Thiosulfate. Very true! I had a magnesium deficiency and calcified my mitral heart valve and who knows what else. I didn't develop any kidney stones as I drink a lot of water. Dehydration is the #1 cause of kidney stones.
Avatar f tn When the parathyroid goes wrong, it commands a high level of calcium in the blood...so if you dont eat it, it pulls it from the bones....then bone calcuim clogs the kidneys causing stones and flank pain...so if this is it...this could be causing all of that...plus excruciating pain and fatigue. Add the calcium dietary if you can and are not allergic to it, worth a shot... Dan Active is the best I have found for all my stomach ills and adding enough calcium in a quick four ounce shot.
Avatar f tn the parathyroids regulate the calcium levels in the body. A high calcium count can mean parathyroid disease....most of the time caused by a tumor or nodule. Parathyroid disease can make you feel miserable, so please make sure you follow up with a parathyroid specialists to see if this is the case for you. Do your homework and reading on line and educate yourself as much as possible, so you can be your own best advocate.
Avatar n tn He said there were 5 red blood cells which was not high. He has ordered a CT scan of his kindeys. My question is can a boy that young already develop kindey stones and what causes them? Is there anything that can be changed in his diet to help prevent them?
Avatar f tn Stool can change color for a variety of reasons. Possible causes of yellow stool include diet, stress, celiac disease, pancreatic disorders, liver disorders, gallbladder disorders, and rarely infections such as giardiasis. If your symptoms persist, see your doctor for further workup and testing.
968908 tn?1274871115 s do, as i found out myself, so i had this test performed by a Nutritionist, which did come back Positive with very low levels of B6 and Zinc, so after 18 long years of suffer from anxiety disorders, i have a glimmer of hope and wellness. Plus since starting the treatment regime my body is beginning to feel stronger and more able to cope. The second thing i found during my research which some people may not be aware of and can affect the body quite severely is Candida.
1886992 tn?1320908887 After much reading about this condition I found that anyone with the disease should only be consuming Calcium through their diet and NOT take it directly in the form of vitamins, etc. there are a number of other things I was told to avoid as they may encourage stones to form, see http://kidney.niddk.nih.
Avatar m tn i eventually found a great endo who did a 24 hour urine catch and that revealed an crazy high output of calcium into my urine. i had a scan done and that came back normal. i went to two surgeons. the first one immediately dismissed me as not having a parathyroid issue because both the calcium and PTH were not high at the same time. the second surgeon did an ultra sound and there it was. the largest adnoma he had personally seen. so my advice is don't take no for an answer.
Avatar f tn Some of the more important ones that you need to get tested are Reverse T3 and a Free T3 from the same blood draw, cortisol, Vitamin D, B12 and ferritin. Do you think you can get those done? I realize that there may be other issues, but I think you need to get your thyroid issue taken care of first. And of course everything I have said here about thyroid may also apply to your mom.
Avatar n tn Can you develop Colonic Inertia from having a surgery gone wrong??? Is it possible that the surgeon may have cut or gone to close to the bowel?? Why would all of a sudden your colon features sigmoid that is sharply angulated and your gatro doc has a hard time getting a scope in you for a colonoscopy?? Do you trust colon cleansing and what products if it takes you now almost 1 week to move your bowels????
Avatar f tn But I read that blood calcium does not reflect dietary calcium. I realized that it is possible that high dietary calcium cannot be detected via blood testing according to Dr. Ronald Roth (from over 30 years of research): "Intracellular and Serum levels of nutrients represent different physiological and pathological processes. Abnormal levels seen in one medium are not necessarily reflected in the other, so they need to be interpreted differently.
Avatar m tn Mammo's advice is important--No consuming salt and caffeine until you see the doctor. Also, if you are taking any herbal supplements or over-the-counter weight loss pills, I would stop those until you see the doctor. Some can raise blood pressure in certain people; even St. John's Wort, which is OK for a lot of folks to take, can increase blood pressure sometimes. Also, unless your doctor has said you can't have fresh fruits, etc.
4939681 tn?1361299299 Not very high, but my endo said that high blood calcium is not normal. She also said that if my blood calcium is consistently high that my PTH should be compensating by going down, not up. I was also told by my PCP that my ionized calcium is normal, but I don't know when that result was taken, nor what the result and range was. Did you have the parathyroid scan?
Avatar f tn There are a variety of reasons for a high serum protein level, including, infection, cancer, inflammation, or autoimmune disease. The next step would be to consider a serum and urine protein electrophoresis to help elucidate the cause. These options can be discussed with both your personal physician, and in conjunction with a hematologist.

Avatar f tn And according to my previous result (april) I was told by my doctor that even with my risk factors I would NOT develop high cholesterol within the next ten years- well that was a big lie! I just went today for a retest and to test my thyroid as well because a thryroid abnormality could change cholestrol readings- I found out by my own research. What else is a possibility? My numbers are: Total Cholesterol- 206 HDL-31 LDL 153 Cholesterol/HDL Ratio 6.
Avatar f tn Hello Everyone, I am in my 20's, normal weight, I exercise a lot and eat healthy balanced meals. I have had high eos levels for about a year and no one seems to know what causes it and how to treat it. My eos levels were 16% at first and now they're down to 10%. I also have a high level of IGE serum (255 iu/ml). I have been tested for parasites several times but the results came back negative.
Avatar f tn Prednisone is a corticosteroid which is used for a wide variety of diseases. It decreases inflammation and suppresses the immune system. Some of the uses of prednisone include treating autoimmune disorders, skin diseases, disorders of the endocrine system, exacerbations of multiple sclerosis, respiratory diseases (such as acute asthma exacerbation) and rheumatoid arthritis. Prednisone has many different side effects associated with its use.
Avatar n tn These jerks are a sign of a number of neurological disorders. Mostly myoclonus is one of several signs in a wide variety of nervous system disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).
Avatar n tn Based on your posts your chronological is 50, but you are physically fit so you may have a healthy heart of a 30 y/o, and an isolated high diastolic pressure may not be problematic as stated in my previous post. However, an echocardiogram would be conclusive. A thyroid problem would include fatigue, heart rate irregularity, etc. You can rule that out as a problem, but if you don't have any symptoms the probability is high there is no heart problem!
