High level of glucosamine in the blood

Common Questions and Answers about High level of glucosamine in the blood


Avatar n tn I look at the broken blood vessels as a pain in the butt, or should I say, hand. I do a lot of physical work with my hands and also row crew and run. My B/p runs low and my HR is low. I think the vessels just might get a small laceration from work and then break when pressure increases from being in a dependent position. Not to worry.
Avatar n tn Also, is the wait and recheck calcium levels in a couple of months the proper way to go? In addition to the synthroid, I am also taking Maxzide 75/50, Zocor 40 mg, Cymbalta 60 mg. and percocet 30 mg/day (both for lumbar neuropathy), and Robinul 1 mg twice a day (for the excessive sweating caused by the Cymbalta). OTC supplements, in addition to the calcium, are multivitamins, glucosamine/chondroitin, and omega 3 fish oil capsules.
931217 tn?1283484935 If it is false, which I believe it is, it is at best a benign placebo, but as you shall read in the embedded link, it is at worst a harmful form of charlatanism, perpetrated on people (and animals owned by like minded people) who are at their most vulnerable and at risk. That is an immoral circumstance. The fact that all is not known in medical science, and that some disease cannot be cured, much less palliated, does not justify selling fraud infused with false hope.
Avatar n tn The esophagus and heart are innervated by the same nerve-the vagus nerve-that is why a stomach disorder can be the cause of those as well (at least from what I read). The eye pain can also be caused by trigger points-some in the area of the back of the head, near the other muscles I mentioned, and also the SCM (sternocleidomastoid) which is in the neck.
Avatar m tn I am 31 and have had 3 years of moderate/severe back pain starting ~6 hours after falling asleep each night. By the time I get out of the shower in the morning it is gone, but I haven't gotten a good night's rest in a long time. I stretch, take vitamins, eat healthy, exercise regularly, etc. None of this seems to change the pain. Although this may not be any consolation to anyone, I am a doctor myself (a pediatrician, not an orthopedist) and can find no definitive cause for the pain.
217229 tn?1192766004 She probably contracted the disease after receiving a transfusion in the 80's before HCV was screened in the blood supply. Anyway, these are just two examples of how acute vs chronic infections are identified. There's a bit of tea reading going on in many cases, that's why it pays to see an experienced hepatologist once you test positive for any hepatitis antibodies.
Avatar n tn The vet suspected that he might have arthritis and Cushings because he was urinating more often in the evenings, had a ravenous appetite and his blood test indicated high potassium level. She said he had yin deficiency, so she prescribed Rehmannia 6, he took that (3 teapills twice a day) and Cushex for 2 months, since then, he is back to normal except that he has to pee right when I'm preparing his dinner (probably from excitement).
Avatar f tn My GP told me my report shows the reactivationg of EBV which apparently means i have had it before in the past at some point... although as far as i am aware I havent had it. However, i THINK i have hypothyroidism. I mean i have symptoms such as muscle weakness, fatigue, joint pain, cold hands and feet, as well as other non specific symptoms.. I have had TSH levels ranging between 5.7-7.
Avatar n tn The Wobenzym acts to reduce hypercoagulation by reducing the surfeit of fibrin in the blood. This may increase blood circulation, but I don't know if it will help your knees. I'm not all that surprised that your liver enzymes are elevated. When the Lyme bacteria are killed, they release neurotoxins that cause a number of Lyme symptoms. The liver detoxifies the poisons that the body accumulates, including any alcohol you may drink and medications that you take.
1916673 tn?1420236870 There are also calcium based binders, that should be only used when calcium is low in the blood, but never used when calcium levels are high. Raw veg are good in small quantities, but do some research because some vegetables are very high in phosphorous. This is a link to the things to be wary of ... certainly the top 20 here should be avoided if possible: http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-011121000000000000000.html?
Avatar n tn I get the same occasional click in my chest mainly when i have been laying down for a long period of time like when i wake up in the morning. It only been happening the past year. What people have said about loose muscles around the joints sounds promising at least in my case. I used to work out at the gym a lot with heavy weights and as a result gained a lot of strength and tone.
Avatar n tn How did your appointment go? I had an appointment on 8/8 as well... got full blood and urine analysis and everything checked out completely normal. not even the "trace" amounts of blood and protein that the urologist found showed up in my urine this time.
Avatar n tn But there are times, like today, where I just want to sit and cry because of all of the pain. One new addition is this strange vibration in my left leg, where I had the horrible fracture. I kept thinking that my cell phone was near my leg, but it wasn't. This weird sensation is actually going on right now. I just attribute everything to the severity of my injuries and nerve damage. But, should anyone find anything else new about this, please post.
Avatar f tn I have become very paranoid and disturbed, and maybe it's my paranoia speaking but I believe that there are toxins in the vaccine. Maybe because of the timely demand for the flu, appropriate studies were not done accurately or possibly some of these companies were reporting semi-false info just to get vaccine out in hurry or for other motives..who knows. What I do know is that nerves do take a long time to heal, so I hope that is why this is taking so long to go away...I hope.
317787 tn?1473362051 Opens Into the Eyes The free movement of the blood from the liver gives the eyes their brightness and shine. When liver blood is abundant the vision is clear and crisp. When it is deficient, the vision is blurred, dry and conditions such as myopia can develop. If the liver fire or yang is rising, heat can get into the eyes and cause them to be red, dry, irritated. If the fire is strong enough to become wind, it may cause the eyes to turn upwards or to move involuntarily.
Avatar n tn She had a bit of diarrhea earlier in day but no sign of blood – I know as I used white paper towels to pick it up – no blood. I am writing to warn all pet owners of this disease HGE. Learn about it.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Hello, I lost a cat also to CRF over a year ago after a four year battle. I have a cat now that has has elevated kidney values , creatine 2.8 and BUN of 56. Where to start, since you are familair with this disease and have some knowledge, I guess you know that dry food is the worst thing we are suppose to give to any cat who has kidney issues.My cat was a dry food junkie and it took awhile to convert her over to strictly canned food.
Avatar n tn I have terrible itch spells in the middle of the night. For the past 6 months I have been under a great deal of stress. Is it possible that I some other disease which is causing my TSH (0.01) and T4 (41.0) levels to be abnormal. I am not sure how long it will be until I see a specialist. What type of questions should I ask? Should I be requesting for a specific test to confirm the hyperthyroidism? My WBC is a little on the low side. My AST is 40 and Gamma GT is 80.
Avatar n tn As far as the B-vitamin argument goes ... I have had my blood checked recently for levels of B-vitamins and the level was normal ... and the left-leg warmth persists whether I'm taking my multivitamin or not. So in my case I don't see that as a factor. Thanks to everyone out there for posting! I feel much better knowing it's not just me. Good luck, and keep those doctor's reports coming!
Avatar f tn This tends to worsen with bad weather and any activity, but at least as often, there is no apparent trigger. As of the past two months, my limb muscles and bones are painful, too. The bone pain seems migratory, i.e., an elbow will ache for a while, then move to the shoulder, then back to the elbow, then the hand and wrist, etc.
Avatar n tn I like the reset of you am in pain. The first three days it's been the left, now it's the right or both. I can't walk or even stand without it getting wrose. I've noiced my lower stomach, left upper leg, lower back on the sides and mid-right back hurting too.I don't know if the other pain is from how I have to sit or lay, but it's starting to be as painfull and the testicular pain. I emailed my doctor and since it's a sunday, will not hear from him until monday.
Avatar n tn Two weeks before the surgery, I was calling my orthopaedic surgeon to see if he could move me up on his surgical schedule because the pain was so chronic and intense. After the surgery, I've had a dramatic reduction in the pain level. Like one of the others who've posted on this site, my orthopaedic surgeon does not consider me a candidate for knee replacement surgery now due to my age.
Avatar f tn The way renal failure is supposed to work when it's Time, is that the toxins build up so high in the blood that they cross the blood-brain barrier. When that happens, the dog loses its personality and really isn't "there". Well, that's the textbook case. It never really happened with Chica. She just got slower and slower and finally stopped eating the last couple of days, but her personality was still intact. She still knew us and her pack mate, Maggie.
Avatar n tn I did notice with the 2nd toe that when I press on the top of the toe in the corner by the nail, I get alot of pain and wondered if maybe it was an ingrown nail - never had one so I am unsure how it would feel and can an ingrown nail cause numbness? Needless to say I caved as the pain became more then just a distraction and I first called my ortho and found he was out on vacation this week for the 4th of July holiday. So I called the podiatrist office and bumped up my 5 week follow up appt.
Avatar n tn It smells like I'm sitting in the middle of a casino surrounded by smokers without the fun of the slot machine. Actually I never go to the casinos because I hate the smell of smoke I guest know would be a good time to go. Why does know one ever come back to explain what they find out at the doctors? I will promise that I will. Thanks for listening I sick of friends and family being less than sympathetic. Good luck everyone........
Avatar f tn My cat was in emergency animal clinic for 3 days, then came home for 2 days and was blocked again, so back to the emergency clinic for another 4 days, $3,000.00 later i was able to bring him home. He has been home for 2 days now, the first day home he was urinating quarter size clumps, but today he has only gone 3 times and they are about nickel size now. He is not eating his food that the vet has prescribed. He is on Tribissen, Buprenorphine and phenoxybenzamine.

13906988 tn?1454209314 After I corrected my B12 deficiency my homocysteine level was in the 6's. What Is A Safe Homocysteine Level?... "While commercial blood test labs say "normal" homocysteine concentration in your blood can range from 5 to 15 micromoles per liter of blood, medical studies show that homocysteine levels above 6.3 are unhealthy and associated with a steep, progressive risk of coronary artery disease and heart attack.
1550149 tn?1340004330 Eicosanoids are localized tissue hormones that seem to be the fundamental regulating molecules in most forms of life. They do not travel in the blood like hormones, but are created in the cells [involved in] a large number of processes including the movement of calcium and other substances into and out of cells, dilation and contraction, inhibition and promotion of clotting, regulation of secretions including digestive juices and hormones, and control of fertility, cell division and growth.
Avatar n tn I do now test of the scale for metals, specifically cobalt and chromium (wearing or bedding in the of the hips) Could these high levels of metal have contributed to the surfacing of poikiloderma , as in Metal induction,,,who knows.. (and I haven't seen any follow up research on from the joint manufactureers following up on high levels of metal) Point being, everyone is an individual, different doses of the drugs, different time length exposure to the drugs................
