Avatar m tn Calcium boosts risk of heart attack, stroke for women, study finds
Avatar m tn the exposures you describe did not put you at any risk for HIV. The risk for HIV starts with whether or not your partner had HIV. It is unlikely from what you tell me that they were - the average rate of HIV among heterosexual American women is less than 1 infection per 10,000 persons and the rate for college age, presumably non-IV drug using, white women is substantially lower than that.
Avatar m tn I remember words being said or written, plus a little about the context. However, within what seems like milliseconds, it dissipates and I cannot remember what the words/memories were. The sensation doesn't happen often, but when it does, there is usually a cluster of them over a few-hour period. It happened this morning, and the only thing I can link to it was having some unual and very vivid dreams overnight. I awoke feeling a little confused. Any thoughts?

Avatar n tn Jason Dear Jason, I cannot commet on whether or not your grandmothers stroke was caused by hypertension. In general, high blood pressure is one risk factor for stroke. Others include diabetes, prior heart attack, abnormalities of heart rhythm, tobacco, family history of heart attack/ name a few. One type of stroke, hemmoragic stroke, can occur when the blood pressure is too high. This causes a blood clot to form in the brain after rupture of one of the vessels.
Avatar n tn I think that your mother should have a full baseline assessment by a neurologist, in the form of a new / second opinion if necessary. This should be your first step, followed by the appropriate treatment once a diagnosis is establised.
Avatar f tn From your MRI findings of brain it is evident that you have suffered ischemic damage which makes you more at risk of stroke. However if you modify your dietary habits, do regular physical exercise and keep your BP and sugar levels in control the risk of stroke will be reduced. Please follow the advice of your PCP and get all the blood tests done, take zocor regularly to keep your cholesterol levels under control. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn A negative PCR is further evidence of what I said- there is no risk for HIV form kissing. You do not need further testing. In fact, you did not need testing to start with.
Avatar m tn The study included 40 healthy men, between the ages of 55 and 70, who had no heart disease risk factors. Ten of the men had never exercised for more than two hours a week. The remaining 30 had exercised for at least seven hours a week for more than five years, either beginning before age 30 or after age 40. Their regular exercise involved either cycling or running.
Avatar f tn He had a stroke afew years ago, and this started a couple of years after the stroke. Every doctor he has seen can’t find anything wrong. Do you have any suggestions on where he could go to get answers and treatment? Thank you !
Avatar m tn You can consult your doctor for this assessment. As for him developing further strokes, his risk factors like hypertension and diabetes need to be adequately controlled. And if he is on any blood thinners like plavix or coumadin, they need to be monitored by frequent blood testing. Be optimistic and encourage him to improve his skills further. Good Luck. Regards.
Avatar f tn For TIA the diagnostic challenge is greater, and the ‘mimic’ rate higher (and more varied), because there is no definitive diagnostic test. TIA heralds a high risk of early ischaemic stroke, and in many cases the stroke can be prevented if the cause is identified," http://pn.bmj.
Avatar m tn I can tolerate my AF but I am concerned about the risk of having a stroke (due to clot migrating from the atria to the brain). I am taking 100mg of Cartia aspirin but I have avoided taking anything else (such as Warfarin, Dronedarone, etc) because of possible adverse side effects. I have also examined the possibility of an ablation procedure but consider a success rate of 75% too low. I would like have an assessment of my condition and suggestion as to what I should do next.
Avatar n tn Worsening of optic nerve function may be underappreciated, especially if quantitative assessment is not performed. Trigeminal dysfunction may have a significant effect on visual function, especially if complete, as an anesthetic cornea is at high risk for development of neurotrophic keratitis.
