Avatar m tn I was surprised by this article - and rather dismayed. I hate posting negative news but I always think it is better to know. Of course, I happen to be a diabetic.....wouldn't you just know? Diabetes Is Leading Cause of Attributable Cases of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Nick Mulcahy April 28, 2010 (Washington, DC) — Which risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is associated with the largest proportion of cases of the disease in the United States?
Avatar m tn simvastatin has been shown to be the most potent on hbv, it is thought the simvastatin changes ldl so that virus cannot use it to assemble viral antigens while hdl, which is the part of cholesterol that lowers ldl, has been found to be antiviral against hbv, so the higher the better the best ranges are the same for prevention of arterosclerosis or heart diseases: tot chol <150mg/dl ldl60mg/dl any lab check for cholesterol and vit d
Avatar m tn The risk of stroke or heart attack is still there, the same as it was before the surgery. The only difference is that a better blood flow has been supplied to the deficit area. Aspirin will be required for life to lower the risk of clotting. If your blood pressure has not improved post cabg, then this medication will also continue. A bypass operation will not lower cholesterol, so if your cholesterol is high, statins will always be a requirement.

Osteomyelitis is an inflammation of the bone marrow and surrounding bone due to an INFECTION!!! Should the underlying cause (the infection), be still lingering around, the mechanism responsible for the osteomyelitis has not been eliminated. 6.
Avatar n tn I was presribed Topamax for the prevention of migraines - started on 25mg, twice a day. That worked well, but neurologist thought that it should be the standard 100mg per day, so 'upped' the presription. I lost sense of flavor and my tongue felt like it had been burnt; went back to the 25mg twice daily (which worked just fine as preventative) and taste came back.
Avatar n tn I unenthusiastically carried on nevertheless, and was drawn to the Wikipedia link for their definition of RSI, of which I had avoided all this time. Little did I know that this would be the turning point of my ordeal. Just as I finished reading the 'ever-so familiar' Wikipedia definition, I was drawn to an external link at the foot of the page (no longer there) called 'Rachel RSI' .My girlfriend is called Rachel which is what drew me to it.
Avatar n tn then do it again in 2-3 days! if all clear prevention is now essential. Tea tree is great for this. shampoo is ok but i find 1-2 drops of essential oil mixed into a bowl of water and combed through works well.be very careful not to use too much,its strong stuff. after washing the hair towel dry vigorously,if any have got back on the head, this breaks their legs and they drop out. then as mentioned before, use the hairdyer, hot as possible next to the scalp.

Also have the veins.....this doesnt make us shoot blanks does it??? If not then im not worried.
Avatar m tn I have had a cat scan which turned up nothing abnormal and have been referred to a neurologist by both the optician and my dr. By some stroke of luck there was a cancellation for the neurologist so I am able to get in tomorrow. There was apparently nothing wrong with my eye but the optician did feel that something was wrong with my optic nerve (can't remember if he said it was swollen or something was pushing onto it?
Avatar m tn I start to think that I may be having a stroke, heart attack or anuerysm....so I drink to calm down. I use to go to the hospital when I was younger (in my 20's). I've been to hospitals for panic attacks the day after drinking more times than I can remember...probably around 25-30 times. Sometimes I wouldn't even go in the hospital. Just setting in the parking lot would make me feel better. I have drug my family and friends through these episodes with me.
211940 tn?1267884866 I have the exact same pain in my right arm. I never had any problem until I was recovering from a stroke and emergency surgery. While in the hospital for two weeks afterward, I noticed a dull aching in my right arm, midway between the elbow and shoulder. The discomfort gradually worsened over the next month until I couldnt use my arm at all. An orthopedic surgeon told me I had torn my rotator cuff and needed surgery but, when he got in there, he found nothing.
Avatar n tn Regarding the previous poster's use of Arnica, the thymol in its roots is a vasodilator, which means it widens blood vessels. In the wikipedia article on vasodilators, it says, that this results in: "relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, particularly in the large arteries, smaller arterioles and large veins..." So it might seem to do with the arteries. Perhaps small clots passing through that area? This is as far as I can figure, for now.
Avatar n tn A friend of mine gave me an early present and it's a book called, Ultra Prevention. It seems interesting so far and it talks about alternative medicine, which I am willing to try since none of the medications seem to work and the Doctors can't give me an answer. My father just returned from the mayo clinic and they gave him a low residue diet to follow. That has been helping him with his digestive issues. Thank you for your time and information.
Avatar m tn I am 54 and rocked obsessively from the age of 13 to 17 when it stopped suddenly as a result of what seems to have been a stroke -- aphasia, pronounced right sided weakness which lasted for weeks and significant lessening of verbal and writing skills, which over the years I slowly learned to "relearn" but still live with some of the deficits. I always rocked in some fashion. When I was very young on all fours, face down with my head on a pillow on the bed.
