Stages of death by starvation

Common Questions and Answers about Stages of death by starvation


Avatar n tn At times, there are symptoms of oxygen starvation, feeling of unwellness, and sometimes, fingernails, lips go blue. More recently, there was such an episode and the palm of my right hand went blue. I know that when this happens, my oxygen sat goes down because once, I went to A&E, explained the symptoms. The doc took my oxygen sat and this was down to 90%. It was probably much lower, because by the time I saw the doctor, symptoms had subsided. Any idea what these are.
Avatar f tn We could only get a total of 18 days inpatient and a total of 4 months outpatient covered by insurance and other available services. We thought she was doing well, and she of course, learned to hide it very well. If I hae learned anything from this whole horrible experience, addicts are devious, amazing liars. She managed to pull the wool over not only OUR eyes, but the outpatient counselors eyes as well!
Avatar f tn taking an examination, recovering from a broken bone, running away from an invading army, or maintaining proper levels of energy substrates in the face of even mild starvation. Some of the main jobs of the adrenal glands are to regulate arousal and control blood sugar levels so these symptoms are what you would expect when they are functionally below normal levels.
Avatar f tn However, I'd still get a second opinion to see if it's necessary. Early stages of Hashi's are often characterized by hyper phases or swings from hypo to hyper. Later, the disease settles into permanent hypo. With your TSH so high and FT4 so low, I'd wonder if that isn't happening. Once you have RAI, you will be hypo, and you will be treated for hypo for the rest of your life.

This can be caused by a prolonged starvation of oxygen, such as might occur with circulatory and cardiovascular disease or lung conditions – or when a dog has been living in high-altitude regions. Greyhounds and some other sight hounds have a normal PCV of 55% to 65% compared with most other breeds. PHOSPHORUS (2.6 - 6.
Avatar m tn plus labs use different reference ranges, so you have to see where your results fall within the ranges used by your specific lab. Many of us find that symptom relief comes only after FT4 is at least mid range and FT3 is in the upper 1/3 of its range. TSH is not a good indicator of thyroid hormone status.

Most of us react to the initial feeling of DP by trying to fight against it. But if you think about it, the idea of fighting against one's own natural defence mechanisms is pointless.
Avatar n tn I subtracted this # by the amount of calories I eat in a day mulitiply that # by 7 and divide that figure by 3500. I've been losing 4-5 lbs per week doing this. I even lost 2 lbs X-Mas week with all of the hoilday food!. I try to get in 5 meals per day and spread out my calories. The only catch to this is you really have to work out to your max everyday. I combine weight lifting & cardio. I work out 45 mins before work and 45 mins when I get off.
Avatar n tn I went through stages where I drank a LOT of milk in the beginning of treatment and ate a LOT of ice cream. I reached clear anyways. Rocker4Life who is very much a health food person doesn't agree with drinking milk at all but you will find most of us in here eat more than our share while on treatment. When you get the mouth sores, the ageda, the sore throat - often you can't eat anything you used to and ice cream and milk is filling and smooth.

Avatar f tn The biggest source of my guilt is knowing that poisoning had been mentioned by the OOH vet although clinical signs then didn't indicate it. But it was on the tip of my tongue to ask if bloods could be taken just in case instead of injections and monitoring for 24 hours. If his bloods had been taken sooner maybe his chances would be better. I don't know.
Avatar n tn I was not sick-nor did I have any symptoms other than general fatigue, which comes with any career path.I asked many pertinent questions on my 2nd. round of therapy and was told by my Hepatologist, that I would probably have no problems for 10 yrs.,if I didn't treat at this time, and then we would probably have to react. Instead, I treated and have lost 5 yrs. of my life. I have had to face retirement, feeling like s--- and so on & so on.

Avatar f tn The only detail I realized I missed in my cure story, was the fact that I was afraid to try to get off Lyrica until after I retired at the end of 2011. Part of my motivation was the fact it is not covered by the Ontario Drug Benefit Plan - not listed. I didn't want to float a drug plan just to pay for it, expensive either way, considering the drug is basically and end unto itself. You don't keep taking it because it actually does any good, just to avoid the horrible and long lasting withdrawal.
Avatar f tn It also helps control the alcohol withdrawals. Has the hospital discussed any sort of release date? AA is a wonderful tool used by many alcoholics to maintain sobriety. Since he has concerns about drinking after his release then a support group like AA would be the perfect thing for him. Using AA and the support he can find right here at MedHelp I have no doubts he can succeed. Getting started; Go to here he can find a complete schedule of meetings in his area.

Avatar m tn I STILL rock back and forth even now as a middle-aged woman, although it is more of an occasional thing these days, when I'm especially stimulated by either happy excitement or a bout of anxiety. But I rarely ever missed a day of rocking for about the first 35 years of my life.
Avatar m tn I have completely healed myself with the exception of a twitch in my left upper eyelid without the use of any prescription drugs by simply changing my lifestyle. I fixed a - e above and then I removed toxins from my body (amalgam in my teeth) and used chelator to flush the metal plus other toxins out of my system. Eating nutrient rich foods will naturally detox the body as well.
