Common Questions and Answers about Nutrition and physical degeneration


Avatar f tn m not a doctor, but I have had an MRI of my spine, and my cervical spine is bad, also. I have degeneration and arthritis and two herniated disc with spinal stenosis. I had the physical therapy, it wasn't too bad. But be prepared to be very sore. For me they made me do exercises to strengthen my shoulder and upper back, did massage and put me on the cervical traction machine. It was OK, not too bad. I can tell you that everyone, as they age, has some degeneration in their spine.

Avatar f tn Are you in sports? Calories for college students vary because of differences in physical activity. Make sure your diet is mostly whole foods including low-fat dairy, whole-grains, lean protein, fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and healthy oils. Don't skip breakfast. Don't get in the habit of staying up late, then rush to get to class. You need food to get your metabolism up, your energy levels will be low and you'll be starving and likely to overeat by lunch.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with what they think is macular pattern dystrophy not macular degeneration. Can you please tell me what can be done for this if anything and what can be done for dry eye. I've been told that this is my biggest problem. I have plugs in already & you refresh or systane eye drops.
Avatar n tn Your x-ray report could be far worse. The radiologist appears to be noting a small degree of "wear & tear" within your lumbar spine. There are a number of different things you can do to improve your quality of life - chiropractic care, stretching, yoga, etc. Overweight people often notice a decrease in back pain simply by losing a few pounds...

1448748 tn?1312956208 I tried all sorts of treatments such as physical therapy, diet change, and nsaids and stretching and heating pads, etc. They provide very little relief and It always gets worse after standing and walking for long periods of time and is relieved only somewhat by laying down or sitting and resting. I had an MRI done at first showing only minimal facet degeneration in the lumbar area and I have had a herniated disc in my c-4,c5 disc since I have been imaged as well.
Avatar f tn I brought my cat to the vet today for a physical...and the vet recommended I give him a type of Purina food that is easily digestible. However, Nature's Variety is such a better quality food....95% meat, no by products, no fillers, no grain, and no gluten. So my question is....should I stick with Nature's Variety??? Also, are beef and lamb harder to digest??? He eats lamb, venison, beef, and chicken. Should I just stick with chicken, rabbit, and venison??? Thank you!!!

Avatar m tn Ideally you should see a specialist and then get a referral to a physical therapist. This way you can learn the exercises that will help you build up your core muscles and take strain off of your back. My husband has the same issue and he is doing much better because of the exercises. I think he went to PT a couple times a week for maybe 4 weeks at least. Now he does the exercises at home everyday.
612551 tn?1450022175 My doctor said bright light can cause/aggregate the the MD condition and I said I never wear sun glasses and bright sun light and oncoming headlights don't give me a lot of trouble.. some of course, but not enough to make we think "put on sun glasses". With all the snow and associated extreme bright light recently I have been trying to wear sun glasses when outside on sunny days. Any experience on dealing with, slowing down the degeneration of the macular?
Avatar f tn Many patients are confuse about the term “degenerative” because it sounds like a progressive condition (get worse with age). The term applies to the disk, but does not apply to the symptoms. While it's true that the disk degeneration is likely to progress over time, the pain from degenerative disc usually does not get worse and in fact usually gets better over time. Physical therapy treatment is very important in herniated disk recovery.
2000931 tn?1401563007 In the fridge I have home made pumpkin and lentil soup, fresh korma balls made of veggies and spices, and I have just finished dehydrating a fruit and nut delight to fight the kids over. Diet is just one aspect of my recovery. Today I lay in the sun and meditated to a bit of classical music and felt at peace. I also hobbled to the shop with my sick daughter to get exercise.

Avatar f tn These vitamins are used in patients with signs of macular degeneration, and include Vitamins A, C, E; zinc and copper; lutein; fish oil (omega 3). Do not take Vitamin A if you are a current smoker. No make-up or eye cream will harm the retina; surface irritation of the eye may occur if the make-up or cream gets onto the eye.

1448748 tn?1312956208 I am a 25 year old female who started experiencing severe pain and debilitating fatigue about a year and a half ago in my sacroilliac area, buttocks and hips. I tried all sorts of treatments such as physical therapy, diet change, and nsaids and stretching and heating pads, etc. They provide very little relief and It always gets worse after standing and walking for long periods of time and is relieved only somewhat by laying down or sitting and resting.
Avatar m tn There is no evidence that all your symptoms are tied together (although plenty of alternative health folks would have you believe it so they can "sell" you treatments). Things can just occur coincidentally. Vitreous syntheresis is no big deal. You're making a mountain of a molehill. If you find yourself continually obsessing about this, I'd recommend strongly you seek treatment for anxiety.
