Avatar n tn DD, I'll get to the articles later, but one question. If it's reall up to the immune system to suppress the virus after SVR, then how come there is almost a statistically insignificant number of relapses after say the post tx 1 year mark? So, assuming there is some role for the immune system to play -- if it doesn't impact us at all as patients, then where is the relevancy?
Avatar m tn Thus testosterone here is mainly a marker of general health, less that the cause of the better general health. This does not mean, that there is no benefit to the overall vitality, organ performancne ( beyond sexual activitires!) due to the higher levels of this vitral steroid hormone. But the degree of this contribution is not easy to gauge. There are many pos and some neg effects to high testosterone.

92903 tn?1309908311 But this article from a Gay Men's Health web site is a good quick read on nutrition and the liver. http://www.gmhc.org/health/nutrition/liver/food.html Interestingly, nothing about coffee enemas. Maybe I'm wasting my time.
Avatar m tn I had never heard of this condition, maybe because I am a female and have never worked in Men's Health. Therefore I did hours of reading and research and came up with some interesting theories. As you apparently know this condition is notoriously difficult to treat. There are some theories that this has a physiological component. One of the treatments when nothing else seems to be effective is called "Skin Deep.
Avatar n tn 6 (so mildly acidic), with men's generally being slightly more acidic than women's. This acidic layer, sometimes called the acid mantel (created from a mix of sebum and sweat) provides a natural antibacterial barrier over the skin's surface. Due to its acidity the naturally occurring (friendly) bacteria that live on your skin thrive, whereas foreign (unfriendly) bacteria will not, so making it easier for the friendly bacteria to essentially help kill them off.
Avatar n tn Here is an article on hep c thru sex though it concentrates more on gay sex Hepatitis C Threat Through Sex Seen By: DUNCAN OSBORNE A growing body of evidence suggesting that hepatitis C can be transmitted sexually is prompting some AIDS activists to call for more research and for AIDS groups to talk to clients about the health threat. "People are starting to hear that message," said Spencer Cox, founder and executive director of the Medius Institute for Gay Men's Health.
Avatar n tn By the way, even if you decide you aren't heterosexual and may have sex with men too, the exact same advice from the doctor applies, except replace "vaginal" with "anal.
147426 tn?1317269232 After a year of testosterone treatment, the men's average blood testosterone level was on the high end of the normal range. Testosterone treatment was associated with better scores on the mental skills test and a 67% slowdown in loss of brain volume. The men's lean muscle mass also rose with testosterone treatment. Larger studies are now underway. Women - Yes, we have testosterone, too, but in much lower levels.

1605559 tn?1314796678 leave men's magazines around...not hustler...but health type or whatever...ones that have sex related articles in them. Leave them where she can see them, but not too obvious. lol There are some " Music magazines" that larger city music stores carry. They often carry articles in the last page or two devoted to sexual problems. Reader's Digest may have something for you as well. Anyway...just some thoughts to help you start.
599170 tn?1300977493 Found out years later I was obviously starting in a Hashimoto cycle of destruction! Had ovarian veins like the size of 3 men's thumbs across the right one that would bleed constantly another few years later. Bled heavily for the first 3 months of last baby. Nearly lost him. Had heavy periods for years now. Like Tamra above, NO ONE ever tested me for thyroid disorder!

Avatar m tn Have you Googled your symptoms and your questions about your health, concentrating on articles from JAMA, the European Journal of Medicine, Dr. Holtorf, the National Thyroid Association, etc. rather than chat rooms where people just rag on with each other about their symptoms and complain about their doctors ? It is your responsibility to be informed about your condition. For instance, why don't you Google "hypothyroidism and selenium" and see what you get, etc. ?
Avatar n tn //www.gay.com, if you browse through their articles about hiv. It was a really important study for gays & bis because so many of us want to do oral and avoid anal. If the risk is higher by 6 times for the one sucking, then I guess it's feasible that there might actually be an increase in risk for the one getting sucked. The reason for the increase in risk is, if I understand correctly, that alcohol dries out the mouth and negates the blocking power of saliva.
572651 tn?1531002957 But, as we know, it absolutely happens to men. I also think that there is a lot of advertisement where women's health is concerned, warning signs, commercials, etc., however, when you finally decide to go to the Dr. for it to get a good check, it's as if they've not been see the ads, read the articles, etc., (especially where the heart is concerned). I don't understand it, but it does seem disproportionate to me. Why is this? Do we not describe symptoms very good?
Avatar n tn Probably no one, but it's a blessing that came with this kind of odd surgery. I read the Men's forum all the time, and MAN there's a lot of men who have trouble with tight foreskins. And babies who have the same thing. This seems kind of like wisdom teeth and tonsils. Who is rolling around on the ground screaming they wish they had their wisdom teeth and tonsils back? No one. Sorry I seem so short tempered.
Avatar f tn Dear Auntiejessi, I have some more news, I went to a University hospital and asked an internist for help. After investigation and bloodtest, nothing really came out. The professor first thought of Reiter's syndrome(caused by Chlamydia), but the test showed no infection of Chlamydia. Though, he sticks to his diagnose, because of my eyes problems(infection) and tongue(glossitis). He prescribed me an immuno-suppressiva, because he thinks of an auto-immune reaction of my body.

The Louisville Courier-Journal reported Judd is eying McConnell's Senate seat, which is up for grabs in 2014.
Avatar n tn By the way, I still play the lottery even though I'm told my chances of being struck by lightning are higher than winning. Laughter is the best medicine, not to diminish anyone's current health plight, but could we lighten up a bit? And regarding the actual thread topic I have, on several occassions had excruciating pain with swallowing food which hints at yet one more trigger for the dreaded PVCs, vagal nerve irritation. Best thoughts for all.
Avatar f tn Thuja Occidentalis Take it internally, a company named Boiron makes some little pellets and you can find the liquid extract online or at a really really thorough health food store (but most places stores don't carry it). I've found it dramatically dries up the acne/warts/whatevers. So much so that when I went on vacation and ran out for most of the week, I had a another significant breakout immediately whereas before that things were clearing up nicely.
Avatar m tn - rehab aftercare group meeting (12-step based) - men's relapse prevention group (evidence based) - AA Every two weeks I see my addictions counsellor/therapist. Every month I see my mental health worker. Every 3 months I see my family doctor and my psychiatrist. I practice mindfulness and CBT every day. Not sure what else you'd have me do.
Avatar m tn I think this would be a very good time to schedule a complete work up to find out exactly why your so fatigued and experiencing brain fog. Set up an appointment and get to the bottom of your health issues.
Avatar m tn Some companies provide their own insurance, and some insurers are grasping they can save money with procedures done overseas. http://www.businessinsider.com/medical-tourism-as-an-alternative-to-obamacare-2013-10 "HSM, a manufacturer in North Carolina, is one of the many companies that encourage employees to undergo costly medical services across U.S. borders. The company reported that this medical alternative has saved it nearly $10 million in the last five years.
1199040 tn?1265239024 Please lets fight for equal treatment. Maybe the big wigs sitting in Washington will forego their health care until we all have health care. HA May all beings be free from suffering.
Avatar m tn I had posted this in the "woman's health" forum area and got no comments back at all. That area doesn't seem as active of a community as this one. So I will re-post what I posted there related to my wife's hormone levels. As far as thyroid she is being treated with Armour and just got bumped up to 180 mg (from 165). her FT4 are BELOW range, her FT3 are about 25% to 50% of the range but the range is also wider than most ranges we see here.
