Avatar m tn That said, I stopped drinking my 3-4 glasses of wine a week recently, not because of the liver but because I'm trying to get my triglicerides down at the moment and lose some belly weight, so it's interesting you say that wine can decrease blood sugar and come to think of it, my blood sugar was slightly lower when I did have some wine but could have been coincidental. But again, I thought red wine is mainly carbs and sugars, so how can that help glucose and triglicerides?
Avatar f tn I have been precribed Lipitor to take for lowering choloresteral and after reading all the side effects it scares me very much. I have a low fat diet and also enjoying drinking my red wine and hate the idea this medicine can effect my liver. Is there any other way apart from strong medicine like this I can take. My levels are not that high my Doc said if I start taking it now it will help reduce my chances of heart disease in 20-30 years.
976897 tn?1379171202 Even more interesting is Japan, which once had the highest rates of stroke in the world. Between 1958 and 1999, the Japanese doubled their protein intake, ate 400 per cent more fat and their cholesterol levels went up by 20 per cent. Stroke rates were suddenly 7 times lower and heart attacks, which were not high, dropped by another 50%. The French paradox is something always in research but no solid answer can be found.
Avatar m tn My doctor recommended red wine six months back. I am not taking because I fear that it may interfere with my medicines. I remember you mentioned to keep a gap of 2 hrs before and after medicines which means I have to take it during office hours. I am working on it and with your recommendation I will start it sooner. I appreciate your valuable time.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with complicated migraine with hemiparesis, so I know what you all are going through. Mine started when I was 8 years old (21 years ago). I get the aura, nausea, and one-sided headache associated with what doctors assoociate with Classic Migraine, but mine are complicated by having half my body go into paralysis for a short period of time during an attack.
Avatar n tn Lowering cholesterol for secondary prevention, that is preventing second heart attacks in persons who already had had one, was next demonstrated in the eighties and primary prevention of heart attack and stroke (In persons who had never had a prior event) demonstrated in the nineties.

363682 tn?1299492962 Used to be I'd only get the headaches after drinking about two glasses of red wine. But recently, I've started suffering from the same problem after consuming any kind of alcohol. Since being at bars and clubs is part of my job, it's a bit frustrating, but I have cut down drinking to once a week. Next time I go out, I'm going to try taking an antihistamine an hour prior to drinking.
Avatar f tn Flavanols are a subgroup of plant-derived phytochemicals known as flavonoids, and several studies have shown that flavanol-containing foods, including cocoa, certain fruits and vegetables, tea, and red wine, have beneficial effects on LDL oxidation, platelet aggregation, insulin sensitivity, endothelial function, and blood pressure.

If she’s exposed to cigarette smoke, she has her blood chemically cleaned with chelation therapy. In the time that’s left over, she eats right and exercises, and relieves stress by standing on her head.
Avatar m tn I noticed the exact same thing early on when my anxiety phases began and today I have a 1 glass of wine or 2 beer limit. On most days it's zero. Anxiety *****. I do what you can to avoid it. If you're not sure if you're addicted to alcohol, there's a good forum for it right here on medhelp. Go talk to people. Get educated.
Avatar n tn Caltrate plus can't think of anything else I take, except for drinking a few glasses of homemade red wine and a bottle of Fuze daily. I hope that with all our input we can all help to put a name to our problem.
Avatar n tn I am having the same problem as mentioned above and my hands get red and hot (maybe it's from all the itching). If anyone knows what this problem is, please e-mail me! ***@****. Thanks!
Avatar f tn It happened to me last night and it was the most horrible experience ever I tough I was having a stroke, now my body aches really bad. I also was diagnosed with fatty tissue all over my liver couple months ago, and of course my first tough was maybe my liver is not functioning how it supposed. Don't know but I'm really concern. I have kids and I don't want them to see me sick.
Avatar n tn i can feel my blood sugars dropping they give me a buzz
Avatar n tn Plus, I can still drink Vodka and wine. I was never a big soda drinker. But I do like Topomax, it has done wonders for getting rid of my headaches. I take 100 mg/ day, 50mg in the morning, 50mg at night, but i try to take the night ones during dinner because if I take them too late, maybe past 8pm, I wont be able to sleep well.
Avatar n tn My husband developed migraine headaches after a sever stroke about 5 years ago. He went thru all the depakote, etc. for depression, and then in early 2005 had another stroke. He was then started on Topamax. He has lost 40 lbs, and he cannot afford to lose any more. But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss.
Avatar n tn I'm a 54 yom, and have been having these type of incidents the past 3 years. The 1st time it was the lower lip, and I thought that it might be stroke related as it also felt numb. I rushed to my Dr, who did some tests, but was unable to determine the cause.
Avatar n tn This is embarrassing, but I was rubbing my vulva up against a guy over the weekend (not having sex), and now the inner lips of my vagina are red and painful. I am pretty sure it is not an infection, but from chafing. What should I do? It burns..
Avatar f tn I also cut all alcohol out with the exception of the occasional glass of wine with we are out to dinner with friends…. (Mostly so I don’t look like a party pooper) and anything carbonated taste awful. I still had 13 migraines last month, so the neurologist is still trying to get me on the correct dose. But I also have two lesions on my brain from my migraines so what’s one more…..
Avatar n tn where I have SEVERE pain in the midle of my gut (triggered by pain meds.....wine....greasy food...and ????) I get VERY pale...sweat PROFUSELY, drool and then either vomit....have watery stools, fart or....if I'm REALLY unlucky....suffer from these WAVES of pain, vaso-vagal(?) type symptoms for HOURS until they subside...sometimes hycosamine will work...sometimes 4 tums...and once and a while nothing but time cures it.....I have been told IBS....
Avatar n tn I was certainly sceptical of her story initially and if it wasn't for her supply of further external links to other people I may well have disregarded her miraclous recovery and put it down to an isolated stroke of coincidental luck. When I read other peoples stories and how they recovered the same way, I was dumbfounded and it was then that it dawned on me that this IS what was happening to me.
Avatar n tn Not a lot of hard drinking, but at least 3 glasses of red wine per day. Little by little my life fell apart and I stopped going to work. All I did was stare out the window and wonder how people could live normal lives. I was envious of them. The one day I was lying in bed, which is pretty much all I ever did by that point, and I noticed that there was a humming under my left foot - it pulsed regularly at a designated rhythm - or at least it felt like it was following a beat or pattern.
