Pancreatitis in hiv

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis in hiv


Avatar n tn On the other hand, it does seem reasonable to speculate that just as medications are implicated in acute pancreatitis, herbal preparations may do so as well. The best way to prove this hypothesis (I'm not recommending that you do this) is to introduce an herbal preparation, document the presence of acute pancreatitis, withdraw the drug, note the resolution of the acute episode and reintroduce the drug. I hope you find this information helpful.
Avatar n tn 10 days later had a 24 hour fever and diarhhea. forgot about the incident. in may had to be hospitalized for pancreatitis that i had before, they had me on i v antibiotics, when i got home noticed my tongue was bare and burned, when on line and found erythematous candidiasis, called the gp, gave me nystatin, did not completely heal it, tried diflucn and it came and went on it.
Avatar n tn My triglycerides went so high that I got acute pancreatitis. then in turn, the pancreatitis changed the texture, consistency and frequency of my stools. The pancreatitis also causes me to have shoulder pains as well as pain in my abdomen which radiates to my back. But the pain is different for many people. Have your docs checked your amylase or lipase levels while you are having symptoms? Maybe that could shed some light on what is going on.

Avatar m tn Higher total protein levels are seen in chronic inflammation or infection, HIV, hepatitis B or C, multiple myeloma and in Waldenstrom's disease. Conditions like HIV, multiple myeloma and in Waldenstrom's disease usually cause an appreciable increase in total proteins. Since you have discomfort in stomach area, possibility of H pylori infection should also be looked into. You could also be suffering from narcolepsy, which is a neurological disorder.
Avatar n tn The multiple negative HIV tests would make HIV very unlikely. Infection needs to be ruled out. Urine tests and a urethral swab can look for gonorrhea and chlamydia. The prostate should be palpated to rule out infection, which can present with the scrotal symptoms. You can consider a transrectal ultrasound to image the prostate for infection, as well as a prostatic massage to milk out and analyze any prostatic fluid. Regarding the tingling, I agree with the MRI and EMG.
Avatar f tn i used flavoured condom which many websites claim that it isnt effective in protecting against stds and hiv..2 weeks after my exposure i got throat infection along with fever..then suddenly i got pain in one of my knee which migrated towards my both feet elbows ankles hands fingers..this pain is constant from 2.5 months....pain is most severe at night,its like burning on soles and pain from knees till feet....cant even sleep because of this horriblebpain..i think its peripheral neuropathy..
Avatar n tn Nonetheless, the protease inhibitors are a major advance in treating HIV. Patient and physician just need to be vigilant for these potential side effects. When the triglyceride level approaches 1000, the risk of pancreatitis definitely increases. There are good medicines to lower the triglyceride level. You may want to see a specialist in lipid disorders to see if your triglyceride level should be treated.

Avatar n tn I also have worked with radioactive and poisonous chemicals in a lab in the past.Are there other substances besides protein that could make the urine look like that ( )? Do you have any idea wher I should go from here? The doctors I've seen seem to realize that there is something going on but can't figure out what.
Avatar n tn There are several bone disorders too that can raise this enzyme like rickets, osteomalacia, Paget’s disease of the bone, tumors, metastasis and recent fracture. An elevation in AP is often seen in cholestatic liver disease, pregnancy, bone disease, and occasionally with inflammatory bowel disease. In an otherwise healthy individual a rasied AP could be due to false positive test and the test should be repeated. If it is still high then other mentioned causes should be ruled out.

Avatar f tn Hello everyone. I still worry about acute hep c, when I have a few symptoms (fatigue, abdominal pain, the mind slow, diarrhea) from the 5th to 7th week or from the 3th to the 5th week, I do not remember clearly the date, I didn’t know about HCV symptom at that time. So I didn’t do blood test. I did HIV, HEP A, B, C all negative in the 8th week. Only ALT119, CK 4162 (normal<225U/L), MCH 33 (normal <32) and didn’t test AST.
Avatar f tn Worried again, heard there are rare cases where a person develops no antibodies whatsoever but still had HIV, wondering if these cases were due to some pre-existing condition that caused that... could i be one of those people? God, someone help me relieve all of this anxiety!
Avatar m tn My concern, however, is the frequency of my pancreatitis. I sustained an attack in November last year and most recently another in March of this year. I have had ultrasounds, and most recently an MRI CP as well as a fecal elastase done and no significant abnormality was found.
Avatar m tn Please get ultrasound done to rule out gall stones and pancreatitis. Also blood tests for hepatitis and pancreatitis should be undertaken. Try ciprofloxacin with metronidazole for colitis. Stool examination can rule out intestinal infection.
Avatar n tn I now find out my enzymes are over 2000 and the other is 943. My bilirubin is rising daily 13 today went in with 10. All my hep test/HIV have come back negative. Cat scan and ultrasound show thick wall of gallbladder but nothing else. On a liquid diet until last night after eating soup/sandwich the pain returned and so did the belching. Had diarreah last night/today. Have returned to liquid diet.
386032 tn?1220405038 was okay for the next two months was still obsessing about hiv, had my dr give me a viral load test in nov 2007 and cd4 count and percentage, viral load undectable down to 48 copies , report said test could not be done hiv 1 rna not detected. cd4 was 717 percentage was 42.2 on the 27 of dec had diverticulitis(mild case) had me on i v flagy and cipro and than gave me avalox to take home.
Avatar n tn HIV, chronic cirrhosis, chronic pancreatitis, chronic lung disease, cancer etc... It is hard to say but there are many possibilities.
Avatar m tn The other causes could be jaundice if there is yellowish discoloration of skin, food poisoning if the symptoms occurred shortly after taking food, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes cholecystitis and pancreatitis. Have yourself evaluated to rule out sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, syphilis or granuloma inguinale. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. In the meantime take oral fluids and OTC acetaminophen for the abdominal pain.
Avatar m tn There were no clinically significant changes in CD4+ T cell counts or HIV RNA levels in the study subjects. Thus, these early data suggest that 12 weeks of ledipasvir/sofosbuvir may be a safe and effective regimen for HIV/HCV-coinfected patients with HCV genotype 1 without cirrhosis taking select antiretroviral therapy.
Avatar m tn he told me that mild swelling is there in fingers and swelling is also there in knees..he asked me that have i done my hiv test ?i told yes....he told me to do it again :(....he said this seems some kindof rheumatic disease....m freaked out now....what to do nursegirl :'(..m literally crying....i wish my seroxonversion doesnt take long time or my body Isnt producing antibodies because of my low immune system because of my severe pancreatitis and other surgery?
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with chlamydia and negative for gon. in early July. Was prescribed Zithro 1 day dosage. Symptoms alleviated but still felt as if something was not right down there. I was also able to milk slight clear discharge from my penis I figured I'd wait it out to see if maybe symtpoms would go away. In mid August I masturbated and I got a really bad burning sensation/pain. Went to the ER and they tested for gon. and chlamydia.
Avatar m tn I had unprotected sex with a female in August 2008 and was terrified that she may have been HIV positive. I asked her whether she had any std's and she said later that she had herpes she had a son so at the time I thought I'd not get into too much trouble. A couple of days after having sex with this woman I had 3 lesions on my penis which looked like herpes to me and I do get the prodromal symptoms of herpes but have had no lesions reoccur.
Avatar n tn During this timeframe my urinalysis was negative for Gonorreah and Chlamydia, and I had negative RPR, Syphillis, and HIV blood tests. On a subsequent visit two weeks later and not feeling completely cured, a different Dr thought I had epididmytis and I was prescribed doxy for ten days, which I took fully. I had also seen a urologist who didnt seem to think anything was wrong. 5.5 months after exposure, I was hospitalized w/Pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn If you aren't already, try and see a liver specialist (hepatologist) who specializes in hepatitis C and HIV co-infections. They can usually be found in your larger, teaching hospitals. Here's a web site that deals with Hepatitis C/HIV co-infections. It's doctor run, and you can ask them questions. All the best.

386032 tn?1220405038 my year has been very bad as it started with my mom pasting away on my birthday last march, than hospitalized in may for pancreatitis , hospitalized in dec for diverticulistis, i am wasting this energy thinking it could be hiv for a low risk exposure while it could be hundreds of other things. i dont understand it, i am getting counseling but that is going to take time, i for one am tired of taking hiv test and the anxiety that comes along with waiting .
568322 tn?1370169040 Medications like Metformin, Avandia and Actos (Sometimes exercise and weight loss are not enough to get rid of the insulin resistance because the Hepatitis C virus keeps causing it) Medications like Metformin and Actos decrease insulin resistance. In other words, they help make the cells in your body more sensitive to insulin. BUT they DO NOT make the pancreas produce more insulin, so they won't make your blood sugar come down 20 points of whatever. They don't do that.
Avatar n tn I only am now getting concerned as I have been on the internet looking for this and what i find does not describe what i am seeing except for some weight loss, which i have attributed to cutting way back on my drinking and calorie intake (last night was the most i have had to drink in a few months). The oil is not in the stool nor do i see any mucous or if their is it is not readily evident.
