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 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 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 f tn // But that doesn't help you since you are already in this boat. So, this article has a lot of good info in it but is a bit of a harder read. But the take home is to make sure the doctors are investigating where the weakness is coming from and addressing that specifically.
Avatar n tn The bottom line here is that if you’re healthy you shouldn’t take aspirin without a cardiovascular risk assessment by your doctor. If you’re not sure about your risk of heart disease, get tested. Today there are many advanced tests (such as a heart scan for coronary calcium), beyond the basic lipid profile, that can help you and your doctor determine where you stand.

Improvement in EF via surface echo up to 60 % @ one time. Most recent surface echo reported ~50% EF. Three heart caths showed no CAD.
Avatar m tn I recently read that one can possibly contact herpes even after using a condom. I want to know the risk of me getting herpes and other std . Also the risk of me contacting with hiv. and should i go for hiv and other related std testing ? plz reply as soon as possible .
Avatar m tn Unprotected sex has put you at risk. Being uncircumcised does increase your risk some. However, the odds of a single exposure leading to infection are about 1-2000. The odds your partner was infected are also not likely. Have a 4th gen DUO test done at 28 days post for a conclusive result. If this test is not available to you have a 3rd gen antibody test 7-8 weeks post for a pretty accurate result.
Avatar m tn Could someone please provide me with a risk assessment? From my reading of the expert forums, it seems like my only concern is relating to the unprotected oral, in which I should only be concerned about bacterial STDs, and not HIV. Is that correct?
Avatar m tn Most would consider oral no risk. But, most docs and CDC state a low risk for liability purposes. As long as you did not participate in unprotected anal sex with any of your partners, you did not experience a risk for HIV.
