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.

Also i have a mild regurgitation I believe in the mitral valve. My heart is mildly larger than normal but not called an enlarged heart. I have excellent collestoral levels and my arteres are clear. I was told other than that it seemed there was no other problems. What is the normal approach to this problem? Will they want to operate?
Avatar m tn said Dr. J. David Spence. Spence, who was not involved in the study, directs the Stroke Prevention & Atherosclerosis Research Centre at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. For the healthy people in this study, Spence said, the TMAO rise from choline might not be worrisome. But, he added, it might be a concern for people at increased risk of heart disease or stroke. Spence suggested those individuals limit egg yolks, beef and other foods high in choline. Hazen had similar advice.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Acitrom (Nicoumalone) is an oral anticoagulant used for the prevention and treatment of harmful blood clots. This medication is a blood thinner which helps smooth flow of blood in your body, which reduces the risk of a stroke or heart attack.

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.
Avatar m tn An elevated Lp(a) cholesterol level in the bloodstream increases the stickiness of blood, and contributes dramatically to the formation of clots and the chance of a heart attack or stroke. The European Atherosclerosis Society now urges doctors to check Lp(a) in patients at moderate to high risk of cardiovascular disease. The society says bringing a patient’s elevated Lp(a) cholesterol level under 50 mg/dL should be a treatment priority.

Avatar m tn The current study comprises a cohort of 160 patients (100 of them men) with an average age of 45 (range 18 to 55) who had a stroke or TIA. Most patients (94%) had an ischemic stroke; only 6% had a TIA. For a control group, the ethics committee allowed the researchers to use a matched cohort of 160 patients who had not had a stroke and who had had urine tests for various reasons. The problem with the controls, Barber said, was that researchers knew only their age, sex, and ethnicity.
874521 tn?1424120397 They found that men and women who took calcium supplements did increase their risk of heart attack or stroke by about 30 percent. Men and women with high dietary intakes of calcium did not see the same increased risk. In interviews, Reid and his team explain why a calcium supplement appear to raise risk and not a high- calcium meal? They theorize that calcium supplements cause the mineral to collect in your blood...and high-calcium meals do not. that's true.
Avatar m tn Precautions: Because supplements may have side effects or interact with medications, they should be taken only under the supervision of your health care provider. Side effects from brewer's yeast are generally mild and may include gas. People who are susceptible to yeast infections or are allergic to yeast should avoid brewer's yeast. People with diabetes should talk to their doctor before taking brewer's yeast, as it could interact with medication for diabetes and cause hypoglycemia.

Avatar f tn In cases of severe vitamin D deficiency, the dose will be considerable higher and the entire treatment will last longer. The treatment may consist of supplements taken orally or vitamin D injections. You should not be surprised if your doctor prescribes very high dose because it takes efforts and time to get your vitamin D levels back to normal. But even though your dose may seem too high for you, you should not worry too much because overdose is very rare.

560501 tn?1383616340 Vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and heat-related illnesses (for example, heat exhaustion or heat stroke) are common reasons a person loses a significant amount of fluid. Diuretics or water pills used to control high blood pressure are also another cause of a decreased amount of fluid in the body. Blood loss and other causes of anemia decrease the number of red blood cells that carry oxygen in the bloodstream, and this may lead to the symptoms of orthostatic hypotension.
