Common Questions and Answers about Hiv treatment mayo clinic


2207631 tn?1369848423 My hep doc is not treating any gen 2s pending the potential approval. I am going to the Dartmouth College/Mayo Clinic facility in New Hampshire so I trust their judgement. This is why I personally attach a fair amount of significance to this date in December. There are no trials that I can find for gen 2s so my only other option is the SOC dual treatment of Peg-Inf and Riba for 24 weeks.
Avatar n tn James Steckleberg is chairman of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Mayo Clinic, a consultant and a professor of medicine at Mayo Medical School. He says that about 30% of hep c patients will develop cirrhosis (usually several decades after infection) and that 50% of those will progress to liver failure or cancer.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn From Mayo Clinic Although a high red blood cell count is not a specific disease, it may be a sign of an underlying problem.
Avatar n tn Thanks Doc for the quick reply Is there any chance that all these tests missed an HIV infection and my jock itch is due to HIV? The reason i am so worried is i saw on the mayo clinic website that the said that people with HIV have hard time getting rid of jock itch. And dr.

Avatar m tn There will be a clinical trial at Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota, coming up that will be for post transplant patients. "Study to Investigate GS-7977 and Ribavirin for 24 Weeks in Subjects With Recurrent Chronic HCV Post Liver Transplant" Unfortunately only 40 people total will be in the study. If you can wait for another year you could try to get in the phase III trial IF the phase II goes well.
Avatar n tn From the Mayo Clinic “For monogamous couples, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) doesn't recommend routine condom use to prevent hepatitis C transmission. But couples should avoid sharing razors, toothbrushes and nail clippers, and should also avoid having intercourse during menstruation. Your risk of contracting hepatitis C increases significantly if you have HIV.
Avatar f tn First, because of the wide variation in the NYHA/WHO functional class assessments made by clinicians who care for and conduct clinical research (See report from the Mayo Clinic, that follows and the November, 2009 New England Journal of Medicine article, attached) And, secondly because any determination of severity must include not only the absolute level of pressure in the untreated individual, but other factual information, including the degree of heart failure (clinically and per echocardi
Avatar f tn Hi I was thinking to go for testing for all std including hiv in the clinic that I had found they could let me test without ID the problem that it maybe expensive because they send the samples to UK and second problem I am scared from the result and if it came back positive I will die in my place and no one will belive me about my exposure
Avatar m tn Most doctors will not recognize this as a condition because they assume that yeast infections are controlled by our immune system, unless you have HIV or another auto immue disease. The Mayo Clinic has done much research on this. It appears by their data, and other labs have verified it, that everyone who has chronic allergies and sinus infections has fugal sinusitis.
Avatar f tn I am waiting for a bad case, go in and demand a culture to test for staph infection of the nose, and then get the antibiotic Mayo Clinic suggested for this bacterial!!! Infection. I also noticed when I took a round of a stronger than normal antibiotic that my fibromyalgia symptoms greatly lessened and all most went away. They slowly came back though, but I wonder if there is a MAJOR link between the staph and my fibromyalgia. Good luck. I hope this helps you.
Avatar f tn From the Mayo Clinic: Causes By Mayo Clinic staff The precise cause of canker sores remains unclear, though researchers suspect that a combination of several factors contributes to outbreaks, even in a single individual.
Avatar n tn It worked. I went to Mayo Clinic and the lump in my breast was big by their standards. Mayo had never seen a case of GM and it is not their specialty, cancer (even though it has been misdiagnosed.) However it was good to talk with a number of experts and it helped me decide what to do. Frightening as it was, I had to make the decision, the doctors only give information.
Avatar m tn In the US the CDC (Center for Disease Control) does not suggest to long-term monogamous couples they need to use barrier protection. There are many here who were infected with hep c but their spouse did not contract hep c. The risk of transmission is greatest for those who engage in rough sexual practices involving blood, in the presence of HIV or for those with multiple sexual partners.
592969 tn?1248329005 Here is the Mayo site address. Mayo is where McCain went for his Melanoma treatment. Pet scan involves dye for detecting cancer. Cancer can be in some Lymph nodes and not others so common sense sounds like that would not be true, but I don't know (I am not a doctor). What is your white blood cell count? When a person has cancer it is high.

Avatar f tn You may want to look up leukopenia on google and go to trusted sites like the Mayo Clinic or WebMd for general information about his associated conditions like leukopenia. Med Help doesn’t want us to attach links here. But as far as how this impacts his health his medical team is best equipped to answer that question.
186606 tn?1263513790 however and the medical community is extremely defensive about it and claims it does not occur in spite of evidence to the contrary. The Mayo clinic came out with a risk list last year and they put the risk of contracting Hep C during a colonoscopy or other surgical procedures at 5-10%. Dental procedures was slightly higher, manicure salons was quite high.
Avatar f tn This is just one of many, and the Mayo Clinic is tops with mental issues. Risk factors By Mayo Clinic staff Although precise statistics aren't known, depression is considered relatively common. In any given year, about 12 million adults in the United States have depression. Depression cuts across all racial, ethnic and economic divides — no one is immune from the risk of getting depression.
Avatar n tn The purpose of those advertisements is to take your money and sell dreams not cures IMHO from the Mayo Clinic Colloidal silver isn't considered safe or effective for any of the health claims manufacturers make. Silver has no known purpose in the body. Nor is it an essential mineral, as some sellers of silver products claim.
Avatar n tn I think I may have found the name of what you are looking for. Go to the mayo clinic website and seardh for Morgellons. It gives descriptions of what you were saying. Let me know how things turn out. Send me a note.

1530171 tn?1448133193 “ “Plus the team also found that silver helped deal with two kinds of infection that usually require repeated trips to the clinic for antibiotic treatment. One is caused by biofilms, slimy layers of microbes that coat catheters and prosthetic joints, and the other is caused by bacteria that lie dormant during antibiotic treatment and then resurge when it finishes, causing recurrent infections.” Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I have had my first consult with the hepatologist at Dartmouth Hitchcock medical center in Hanover, NH (a Dartmouth College/Mayo Clinic facility) May 2, 2013 My take away from this meeting: *They see about 2 new HCV patients a day. *I was told that they are not treating any genotype 2s until non-interferon treatment is available. They say this will happen within the next 12 months.
179856 tn?1333550962 " am HIV positive and my immune system is just fine. I just finished my treatment and have just had my 6 week post PCR test indicating I am still UND. Coinfection is in no way a reason not to treat. You only need to have your HIV viral load UND. There thousands upon thousands of coinfected people who treat and become UND.
Avatar f tn There are several places in the US that you can go to when no one else knows what the heck is going on. The main two are the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, both of these places have branches but the branches are NOT like the main place. You go to there and have one main doctor and then they send you to see other doctors and have every test needed done and they all communicate and have access to look at everything and as a team come up with an answer.
