Avatar m tn Zeldox (Geodone in the US) caused rapid weight lose for me. It was great at first - lost all the ziprexa weight. In the space of a year I was a size 2 and couldn't keep weight on. So we switched to Abilify. I am still slender but not nearly as bad.
Avatar m tn It depends upon the prevalence of TB in your community. Definite diagnosis requires lab investigations like TLC: Leucocytosis, ESR: raised during acute stage, Tuberculin skin test etc.
Avatar m tn In general the risk of HIV from exposure to any heterosexual partner in the Western Europe (including the UK) and North America is low. the prevalence of HIV in these populations is less than 1% and often close to 0.1% among non-IV drug users and non-commercial sex workers.
Avatar m tn s your risk of getting it in the neck is very small, let us then reverse it and say that there are very many who have it then means of course the risk that get it in the neck or getting cancer of the throat is very small in relation to how common HPV is, we have found that many people who get cancer of the throat has HPV, it's a big difference to come up with how many people have oral sex who gets cancer, as I said, oral cancers linked to oral sex, oral sex, but can hardly be said to be link
Avatar f tn I am from U.K. I have the same doubt. No doubt that HIV2 prevalence rate in U.S and U.K are very low compared to HIV1. It is said that HIV2 is prevalent in western African countries. The worry comes when thinking that HIV2 rates in U.S nd U.K are low but not zero (non-existence).. I had Hiv duo test 37 days after exposure. it looks for both HIV1&2 ANTIBODY and P24 antigen (Not sure this antigen is common to both 1 and 2 or just 1).
1247613 tn?1268785691 The pain of the kidney infection scared me out of anorexia, to say the least. The anxiety had become extreme to the point of serious panic attacks. My mother sent me something called lorazepam, she tells me that if I have an attack, I should take it. I wanted to ask a doctor's opinion before I actually take it at the time of my panic attacks which usually occurs at night.
Avatar m tn In addition, we found significantly increased IFN-α levels in SLE patients.The prevalence of HBV infection in SLE patients was lower than that in sex- and age-matched non-SLE controls in southern China. The characteristic IFN signatures in SLE may favor the subsequent clearance of HBV.
Avatar m tn I did ask her if she tested and she said of course. I understand prevalence in thailand is now rather low but probably higher with transexual escorts. Although I would assume some form of testing goes on when breast surgery is performed. And that an escort that can travel to the uk is probably not supporting the cost of triteraphy. As you can see i m worried, confused and probably make little sense. I m counting the day until i can get the duo test. Would you recommend pep for my exposure?
Avatar n tn 5 millions of hiv infected people with a population of 1000 millions, then the prevalence is 0,35%, almost the same that the US that has 1 million infected people with 300 millions, so a prevalence on 0,33%, then Brazil has 700000 infected people out of a population of 200 million so a prevalence of 0,35%. In the whole world there is calculated to be 35 million people living with HIV/Aids out of a population of 6000 million so a prevalence of 0,58%.
4848471 tn?1372238752 as it is called north of the Border, occurs more frequently there than in the south of England or other parts of the world. A population study in the Lothian and Borders published in 1998 in "The Journal of Neurology & Psychiatry" reported that twice as many people - 2 per 1,000 in Scotland as opposed to half that number or 1 per 1,000 in England and Wales - suffered from MS.
Avatar m tn I was also diagnosed in the US with hypoglycemia, because I would suddenly feel faint, but back in the UK that was ignored I was told to eat pasta. So I have been treating these pains as if it were an ulcer, eating little and often, no alcohol and relying on Tagamet and Gaviscon (liquid) only Paracetamol for pain as Aspirin, Nurofen, Codein, or any strong painkillers caused more pain...
Avatar m tn m not sure about current estimates of the prevalence of HIV in London area men who have sex with men. One in 7 sounds too high for gay men in general, but it could be true for some, e.g. those who are frequently and outwardly unsafe (frequent anonymous partners, barebacking, etc). The GUM clinic will know; or you could look up information from the UK Health Protection Agency (HPA); I imagine they have a website and/or a public information phone number.
Avatar m tn No, but CSW's usually don't have HIV or STDs. A very small number of them do. Do you have a risk you would like to discuss though?
Avatar n tn HIV prevalence rates vary greatly even within a country with some of the CSWs who work in lower cost brothels and situations having higher rates than the typically more expensive CSWs working with travelers. A 3% rate is 30 times higher than the rate for heterosexual women in North America and between 1/3 and 1/2 the rate of infection among men who have sex with men living n major U.S. cities.

In individuals with anorexia, these emotions can be shut down by eating less and less. They also could make it difficult to eat. In any event, your friend needs a medical exam with blood work and psychiatric/psycholigical evaluation. There is hope. In having a clear diagnosis, treatment is available. If stress, anxiety and/or depression are part of her dynamics.
Avatar f tn In the UK, do they check for dilation? Only really heard it done in USA, and I'm 37 haven't been checked so far!
Avatar f tn There are many other causes for weight loss such as worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, cancers especially colon cancers (unlikely because of her age), infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, acute and chronic infections, eating disorders, cancers and hypothyroidism. It could also be due to increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, cancer etc.
Avatar n tn Where do you get this figure from? A population prevalence of ONE PERCENT?? (1000 x 100 = 100,000). Wow, is this the HIV prevalence in London then?
