Avatar m tn hullicantions, liver deseases or risk of heart attack when anxiety starts or panic attacks , chronic hepatic dysfunction... anything i should be watchfull over just in case.
Avatar m tn Or if anyone has experienced tobacco cessation whilst coping with Hep C and liver damage? I have read about the effects of quitting smoking, and that they can sometimes last for weeks/months; however, prolonged periods of pain/stress will be counterproductive for someone who is also trying to cope with chronic liver disease, even if the end result is to detoxify the body... Hence my question...and looking for palliatives which will not harm the liver. (
Avatar n tn Hi I am new here and i hope i am not breaking any rules but my question ia about what effects smoking pot (marijuana) will have on my son (20yrs old) who is diabetic.

3211536 tn?1359389169 Talking any drug not prescribed buy your hepatologist is to be no in compliance with what you agreed to be be listed. Patient has been denied liver transplants for smoking pot and have died. Of course many continue to drink alcohol and end up dying. All transplant patients can be screened for drugs at any time. As few on this forum probably know, post transplant patients are prone to life-threatening infections and cancer.
Avatar n tn Marijuana is NOTHING compared to the alcohol addiction. If you are concerned about the effects his smoking is having on the drugs he takes in relation to his his doctor. Most doctors will, of course, say "Oh my...marjuana is not good for anything". Which, in my hog wash. marijuana has been a pain reliever for centuries...with PROVEN medicinal values for those in chronic pain. If he is subsituting with pot to replace the alcohol...

Avatar f tn As far as the smoking goes I don't think that will hurt the liver directly. But I don't think he should do it, because liver disease effects the entire body. He needs to say as healthy as possible. Keep his body strong. Also in the event that he would need a liver transplant in the future, his lungs need to be strong. He would have to pass a breathing test when the doctors evaluate him for transplant, (if a transplant is needed). That was a tough one for me...I was considered in good shape.
Avatar f tn direct or indirect toxic effects, immunological effects and oncogenic effects. Smoking yields chemical substances with cytotoxic potential which increase necro-inflammation and fibrosis. In addition, smoking increases the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6 and TNF- alpha) that would be involved in liver cell injury.

173930 tn?1196341998 Some recent studies suggest coffee may be good for the liver. Cigarette smoking on the other hand is not good and can affect negatively the outcome of treatment. You definitely want to try to stop if you're going to treat. I found SmokEnders to be an excclent program and it helped me to stop smoking over 20 years ago. Don't need to tell you how bad smoking is for your entire health, not just the liver -- so use the Hep C as a motivating tool to stop.
Avatar n tn Does anybody know how smoking effects the progression of Hep C? I smoke quite regularily and im getting worried.

Avatar n tn I have been prescribed Acebutolol for PVC's and I am literally exhausted since beginning this medication but I didn't see that as one of the side effects. Also, my vision is blurred. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn I have been looking at things to help me quit smoking. Smoking aid sites have given me the first feeling of calm I have had all week from the panic of just THINKING about quitting. I buy cheap smokes and my aid can't cost very much more than my habit. I will starve lol I smoke 1 carton-1 1/2 cartons a week for 20-30 dollars Canadian. I do not have many dollars more than 30 a week to help me quit, but to go cold turkey means I will go insane. I am not kidding.
7052683 tn?1392942395 Does anyone know if enlarged liver and fatty liver are the same? Does anyone know if Heavy drinking for 10 years--sober for the last 25 would have anything to do with this Liver evaluation? Shouldn't 25 years abstinence from Alcohol have reversed any harmful effects or has the damage already been done because of those 10 years as alcoholic. Ultra sound findings: Increased hepatic echotexture consistent w/ fatty infiltration. The liver appears enlarged.
Avatar m tn Actually, though, there are many leading liver specialists in Texas. My father had liver cancer in the 70's and was treated in Houston. But I digress.... The speaker in the videos is a Dr. Jennifer Pâté, a psychiatrist at St. Luke's Hospital. She is not at all critical in her talk....just presents the information in a very professional way.

Avatar n tn the corresponding figures for sustained virological response (SVR) were 54% and 18%. The frequency of side effects was similar among cannabis users and non-users, but more non-users discontinued therapy early (33% vs 5%). Marijuana users were more likely than non-users to be adherent (86% vs 59%) and to remain on therapy for at least 80% of the projected treatment duration (95% vs 67%).
Avatar f tn I quit smoking a year ago on Chantix. It worked for me without the side effects of antidepressants. It took away the psychological challenge although I still had the physical challenge. It was the easiest quit I ever had and I've been smoke-ended, hypnotized, patched, cold know of it I tried it!
