Avatar m tn Of course there is a difference in preparation and lowering your risks to help prevent stroke or heart attack. Prevention is always the best approach, as much as possible that is.
Avatar n tn However, as HIV-2 and group O infections are extremely rare in most countries, routine screening programs might not be designed to test for them. Anyone who believes they may have contracted HIV-2, HIV-1 group O or one of the rarer subtypes of group M should seek expert advice.“quote from“http://www.avert.org/hiv-types.htm” and some article shows that there may be false negative result of type O so in case of that,should I test more times using EIA test?
Avatar m tn I would say in general terms that loss of peripheral vision be it from glaucoma, stroke, retinal disease like retinitis pigmentosa or other causes is usually not something that can be rehabilitated. There are some new computer programs with vision simulators that try to help patients try to rehabilitate the use of lost peripheral vision mainly from stroke and there has be at least some encouraging, though limited, results with that.
Avatar n tn Treatment of stroke depends on whether the stroke is ischemic or hemorrhagic and on the underlying cause of the condition. The long-term goals of treatment include rehabilitation and prevention of additional strokes. In your uncle’s case it could be ischaemic or hemorrhagic stroke due to high BP. If it is a ischaemic infarct, anti platelet drugs, anti coagulants and thrombolytics are employed in the treatment. If it is hemorrhagic infarct the hematoma needs to be evacuated with surgery.
Avatar n tn Is it worth the money to get a cardiovascular screening that comes to my area? I have high cholesterol, high blood pressure and my mother died from a stroke at the age of 55 from plaque in her arteries. It seems like a great deal. Can my doctor order the same tests?
Avatar m tn Hi, of course 2 weeks is very soon to take any kind of HIV related screening tests. A rapid test needs waiting time of at least 6 weeks.
Avatar f tn If he was falling frequently, sometimes the risk of staying on these meds (bleeding with fall that could lead to death) outweighs the benefit (stroke prevention which is a few percent per year), which is something his physician needs to determine. Given his age, and history of blood in stool and falls, it is reasonable to keep him on warfarin (coumadin), especially due to the evidence in people over 75 on Pradaxa, and the difficulty of reversal with Xarelto given his falls history.
Avatar m tn Search for ‘Antiplatelet therapy for secondary prevention of stroke’. Under Aspirin, you will get the details. Good Luck. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn My kidneys are barely functioning and they are finally screening me for a transplant, but with the CHF, the screening is just a formality, something required by law now days. I'm told I won't qualify, but I have to go through the process anyway, and it's a strugle for me, do to all of the tests I'll have to endure for nothing......they leave NO stone unturned when deciding whether giving an organ will actually make a difference, or whether it will be wasted.
Avatar n tn Though they are of no immediate threat, all these causes, and the presence of ischemic changes can be a risk factor for future stroke.

Avatar f tn In rare cases these changes can lead to more serious health issues but with prevention, yearly paps and various procedures this can be prevented. Low risk strains can cause warts. Most sexually active adults will have HPV at some point in their lifetime and many never show symptoms. In some cases people can have HPV dormant in their system and then because of something like low immune system issues or stress they will develope symptoms.
Avatar m tn I'm a 50 year old male with a family history of heart disease and stroke and am trying to prevent it if possible. I exercise daily and maintain a healthy diet. Will this be good enough in the long run? I tend to worry about it too much because of the problems my parents had but I think my numbers are good. BP runs about 115/65 on average and my total cholesterol is about 100, HDL 45. My glucose is about 85 so hopefully this will keep me out of trouble.
