Avatar m tn (1) High C-reactive protein levels are associated with inflammation and heart disease/stroke. The authors concluded that, in apparently healthy persons with elevated C-reactive protein levels, rosuvastatin (Crestor) significantly reduced the incidence of major cardiovascular events. Their much-publicized claim, that this statin lowers the risk of heart attack by approximately one half, is technically correct though highly misleading.
5848391 tn?1380728642 You should really see a doctor if the headaches are so bad. If you keep taking any pain reliever it just causes rebound migraines. If it is the worst migraine that you can imagine, go to the ER. It could be a stroke. That's how my stroke started. It went on for 3 weeks before it fully erupted. See a doctor.
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 f tn I also have 7 Thyroid Nodules scheduled for a biopsy soon. I am looking for recommendations and suggestions for Cancer prevention foods, supplements, herbs, teas, spices and antioxidants for the Colon, Thyroid shrinking Thyroid nodules of a plant based monthly or weekly meal plan for balanced recipes.
Avatar n tn There is no scientific evidence to back this up as a prevention method, but it stands to reason that it could wash the virus off your skin if it hasn't penetrated to the nerve endings. Keep your immune system strong. Sleep, good food, avoid stress, maybe also take vitamins or supplements. Sometimes your body can fight off herpes. Even if you do all this, please understand, you can still get herpes. It's a very virulent little sucker of a virus.
Avatar m tn I was intialkly prescribed Tramadol for the pain, and then Nortriptyline for migraine prevention. I started at 25mg once at night. That decreased the headaches probably about 50% then moved to 50mg at bedtime. That didn't really help the headaches anymore, but I began to notice the side effects. I was REALLY drowsy and I started to have mood swings (I'd be sad or anxious for no reason). So, we decided to go back down to 25mg again. Also...
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 m tn The high HDL would seem to indicate these are being assimilated, which is the hardest part of taking supplements -- finding a brand that actually is absorbed well. So just wanted to let everyone know. Also wanted to comment on PSA testing, or Prostate Specific Antigen. This is a test used to determine if a person might have prostate cancer brewing. Mine was a bit high, 2.1, which is to be expected since I have an enlarged prostate, but far too low to require any invasive search for cancer.
Avatar n tn You will be surprised to know that I personally have seen a Stroke patient showing marked improvement in mobility, speech and other fronts 12 yrs after suffering a stroke. He was given excellent nutrition supplements of multivitamins, multiminerals, ginseng, omega 3 fatty acids and calcium . Within 30 days the person was walking and climbing stairs, brushing his teeth, combing his hair and doing things which he had not done in 12 yrs. So there is always hope.
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 n tn I can only tell you what I've been told over the years I've dealt with kidney stones. Drink plenty of water daily and make sure that your urine stays clear in color when you urinate. When you think you're drinking enough water, then drink another 8 oz glass of it. Additionally, recently I've started taking Flomax (generic version) on a daily basis.
Avatar m tn Have you had that first stone analyzed to see what it's made of? I know that calcium are what makes up a great deal of all my stones so I do avoid consuming a lot of things with major calcium content in them. Apparently my body does not absorb calcium well. You may be the same way. That does not mean that you can't eat things containing calcium like ice cream or milk products, it just means you'll have to do it in moderation.
Avatar m tn There is some concern that vitamin E might increase the chance of having a serious stroke called hemorrhagic stroke, which is bleeding into the brain. Some research shows that taking vitamin E in doses of 300-800 IU each day might increase the chance of this kind of stroke by 22%. However, in contrast, vitamin E might decrease the chance of having a less severe stroke called an ischemic stroke.
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 I know prevention, but can you clean them naturally with good health habits after there has been build up? Let me know Thanks!
