Avatar m tn One animal study showed Bt toxins produced by GMO corn has been shown to significantly alter immune function in mice and may cause disrupted immune function in the gut. GMO's are in 60 to 70% of processed foods found in grocery stores in the United States. There is no regulation in the United States requiring the disclosure of GMO ingredients to consumers. New studies show too much salt may trigger autoimmune diseases.

Avatar m tn I had an attack of brain inflammation in June 2011, at a time of great stress in my life, with 10 of my 12 cranial nerves impacted. A subsequent 'sensory' relapse in January 2012 - with numbness/tingling in my left hand and two further brain lesions on MRI - led to a diagnosis of relapsing and remitting Multiple Sclerosis (MS) on 30 May 2012 at a hospital in London, UK. I have had other sensory relapses since.

In a 2006 study of 673 patients using monotherapy of entecavir 3% showed virologic rebound in 96 weeks of which 3 patients had lamivudine-resistant virus at start of treatment. A 2007 study indicated that the cumulative probability of virologic breakthrough associated with entecavir resistance was 0.8% over 4 years. 4.
Avatar m tn It's almost impossible to learn all that the 'old timers' have learned through their years of reading. Add to that, each of us present information in a different way, from a unique and personal standpoint and it's confusing (although usually factual). The problem here on this site there's mass confusion about what we can or can not give as a link. I still don't know the real rules so I just avoid giving them, which is really a shame because I was trained to give citations for what I said.
Avatar n tn I have been feeling severe fatigue and cold-like symptoms for 3 months or so as well, but i have my good days of course. I have a history of severe dysplasia in my cervix, had to conizations. I am 23years old, female.

I have an MRI scheduled, for my back.
Avatar m tn To model the molecular mechanisms behind this phenotype, we characterized the effects of ethanol on Jak-Stat and MAPK pathways in Huh7 human hepatoma cells, in HCV replicon cell lines, and in primary human hepatocytes. High physiological concentrations of acute ethanol activated the Jak-Stat and p38 MAPK pathways and inhibited HCV replication in several independent replicon cell lines.
Avatar f tn depression; and skin inflammation. Removal of the implants resulted in a dramatic improvement in the patients’ symptoms, as well as a decrease in many patients’ sensitivity to titanium. FROM A GREAT GERMAN STUDY ABOUT A WOMAN WHO CAME DOWN "with myalgia and arthralgia predominantly in the knees and small joints of the hands and feet, with morning stiffness lasting at least 2 h.

Avatar n tn Thanks for your quick response. I took a closer look and I see it says next to MAT/anti - TPO and TAT/anti - TG So I googled these and found the following.. MAT = Antithyroid Peroxidase Antibody (Anti-TPO) "Anti-TPO Abs mediate antibody-dependent thyroid cell destruction; levels correlate with the active phase of the disease.

Avatar n tn Recurrence is common and for many can be chronic. Incidence/prevalence is said to be 1/5,000 in the United States. However, many cases of eczema are diagnosed as garden-variety atopic eczema without further investigation, so it is possible that this figure is misleading. This condition is not contagious to others, but its unsightly nature can lend to awkward social interaction.
Avatar n tn My hands and feet are almost always cold (in fact, they are right now), and I fall in and out of relatively mild depression. I have been told that carrying the thalassemia trait has no obvious symptoms, but I've been poking around forums a little bit, and the symtoms I experience seem to be fairly common. I'm still looking for ways to lessen the intensity of these symptoms, but for me I've found that maintaining physical activity helps, as well as not oversleeping, or overeating.
Avatar f tn Chills is one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), which is one of the most under-diagnosed conditions in the U.S. Some blood tests might show that you are "normal" when in fact you may be not. Does anyone have any trouble with their teeth? More specifically had root canals that are failing?
363682 tn?1299492962 However - and I'm sure these are available in the USA too - I've tried sachets of Dioralyte (an oral electrolyte powder used in cases of dehydration here in the UK) both before and after alcohol ... and, in my case, it made no difference at all. I think I've now tried just about everything ... from the above to anti-histamines, topical and tablet analgesics, etc., etc.
Avatar f tn I know the water is severely contaminated here, and obviously I don't drink it, but I never thought before about showering in it or using it to wash my clothes... Some of you said you had it while living in Mexico, or after visiting Jamaica... perhaps it is the water?? I am going to get a filter for my washing machine and shower... hopefully this helps! Does anyone have any updates on doctors' diagnoses?? Thanks!
Avatar n tn My suggestion on how to already known! Ok, I don't want to transform all of you in a bunch of drug addicted, but have you tried a tranquillizer just once? Just to see whether your tingling diminishes the moment you calm down? @rnneeedshelp: as my "colleague" has written, you are anxious over the symptoms, not the opposite, and the same is for all of us.
Avatar n tn Decreased levels of cortisol are found in Addison's disease, conditions of low thyroid, and hypopituitarism, in which pituitary activity is diminished. CFIDS stands for Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome.The nonspecific nature of the name CFIDS is appropriate because while there are many symptoms, disabling fatigue and exhaustion are the most prominent and consistent.
Avatar m tn (should have mentioned, I'm getting a second opinion at the Royal Manchester eye hospital, which is the place to go for eyes in my neck of the woods. It's the UK, though, so it will probably take a couple of months to get seen, now it's down as non-urgent). Here's another question. How big are your spots? If I hold my arm outstretched, mine are about half the size of a fingertip. I know that's a bit vague, but I don;t know how else to rate them.
