90502 tn?1196367605 Well, here goes. Since Scruffy recommends being cautious, I just have to suggest that you push the envelope in a couple of places. Maybe bring the Vitamin C up to a gram (divided doses) and and up the ALA to 300 mg 2x daily. And also increase the selenium. I've been known to take 800 mg of selenium daily without any problem. 400-600 mg is probably a better regular dose, though. You could also add a gram of N-Acetyl Cysteine to your regime.
1722607 tn?1335751458 Milk thistle (silymarin) in a recent study has been shown to have no effect of liver health, by the way. Kava kava, vitamin A in high doses, mistletoe, germander and European barberry can all be toxic to the liver. If you have a vitamin deficiencies you can be tested for it and add a vitamin to your diet. Such as Vitamin D if you have a low level in your blood. Supplements can interact with the new antiviral drugs so should not be used. Before starting treatment.

Avatar f tn Hi I have a question about liver health. Does any one know anything about how long or if your liver would start to recover after prolonged abuse of pain-killers? I worry every day about this and I need any info on this PLEASE...
Avatar n tn I have no idea what is ok to eat or not eat in this case, and this would best be advice by a physician. You could for a low fee, or even for free in some of the forums on the expert board ask a question for a physician to respond too. I think that is a good start. The expert boards are right along side of the regular ones. I hope your girlfriend will be ok and that you and she are blessed.

1509970 tn?1290040314 B12 should suffice, but to make sure if you need a b vitamin at all you could ask your doctor for a B12 shot and take it from there. They also make sublingual B12 vitamins as well so the market is wide open on these. Do you have reason to believe you are vitamin B deficient?
Avatar f tn They're all used as to look inside the liver as well as to screen for liver cancer. I alternate an ultraound or MRI every six months. My guess is you got either an MRI or Cat scan. It should be on the report. Cat scans have more radiation so it's not a good idea to get them too often. None of the scans can replace a biopsy. They are all different from the new Fibroscan which some day may make biopsy obsolete.
131073 tn?1252454452 I have heard that taking prenatal vitamins for a few months before you concieve actually helps you to concieve and lowers the risk of m/c. Any one hear anything similar to this?
Avatar n tn They have 7000 iu vitamin A, 400 mcg folic acid, 27 mg iron so it basically meets those 3 needed.

Avatar m tn However, Vitamin D can affect Zinc level which is essential to hair growth. If you want better hair health level you can also consider, D vitamins such as Vitamin D2, Vitamin D3, Vitamin Ad3. Actually you can try these natural vitamins if you have hair problems, however you need to keep another thing in mind: Appropriate Dosage. So be sure to consult professionals before taking these supplement for long term. http://www.foodchemadditives.
Avatar n tn Certain foods and medicines, including vitamins, may affect your urine's odor. For example, asparagus causes a characteristic urine odor. However, foul smelling urine may be due to bacteria, such as that responsible for urinary tract infections. Sweet smelling urine may be a sign of uncontrolled diabetes or a rare disease of metabolism. Liver disease and certain metabolic disorders may cause musty smelling urine.
Avatar m tn Cod liver oil is used for skin, but fish oil is better for long-term use for most purposes. One thing about vitamins, brand is very important for absorption, and so is form. Tell us why you're taking what you're taking.

1475202 tn?1388955435 People living with end stage cirrhosis should know that vitamin deficientcy also comes along with having a damaged liver. So as part of the healing process vitamins are a must to keep your body strong and speed up recovery. Manganese is found in every multivitamin I have ever seen. The unforunate thing is that for cirrhotic patients it is harmful to the liver. It seems the would make a multivitamin with out manganese but I have yet to find one. Anyone else run into this? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn I have a 5 1/2 year old son. At 3 1/2 years old, I took my son to a homeopath because he had mild sleep apnea. The homeopath gave him some remedy and then prescribed some "alternative" vitamins called colloidal multimins liquid for adults, a berry fish oil and this thing called neuropowder probiotics. My son had an immediate reaction that day. He started acting out in one of his programs---which wasn't typical behaviour.
Avatar n tn According to my liver doctor, the Motrin could have accelerated my liver disease. Tylenol is responsible for far more liver damage in overdoses than probably anything else, but only because it is a trendy way to commit suicide in some places, in particular England. My hepatologists have always recommended that small doses are safe. Like responses to treatment, everyone reacts to over-the-counter medications differently.
Avatar n tn Vitamin D may have a direct effect on the eyes, and it is vital for maintaining overall good health. Food sources of vitamin D include butter, egg yolk, fish liver oils, fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, sardines, and liver and oysters. Pantothenic acid might be called a brain chemical. A deficiency may result in nerve and optic degeneration.
Avatar f tn hmmm. I thought those supplements you are taking actually do some work for the liver so it can focus on fighting the virus. Opposite of "making the liver work harder". Your supplements fall on the mild side of vitamins that one could take. Heck, a normal person should take those you are taking just for general health.
Avatar n tn Is somebody taking any vitamins (beside calcium) after TT due to thyca ? If yes please tell which ones? Yesterday one doctor told me that I should not take any vitamins or be very carefull with vitamins ( i was going to buy Omega 3 and multivitamins ). I am having severe leg pain ( I am on 125mcg Syntroid) and sought maybe some vitamins can give me some releive from this pain. Thank you very much for any idea. P.S. My resent TSH was 0.03. My endo decrese my Synthroid from 137mcg to 125 mcg.
Avatar m tn I know that vitamins are meant to plug holes in a healthy diet. For years, my parents have taken them and never told me that they could tell a difference. Does the body even use the vitamins or does it just get lost during urination, etc.? If they are effective, is there a certain type of pill that works better for maximum absorption? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Thanks for the info on the ingredients. The cost is only 12.09 for 90 tablets and I think that is pretty reasonable. I wish that it was a cure, but maybe just maybe it will help enough pass to slow down my surgical regimin (9 last year). But again thanks and I will watch out for the blood pressure.
Avatar n tn Prima Care vitamins are the number 1 prescribed vitamins in the country so that has to make you feel good about them. They have the most EPA and DHA than any other prenatal. I looked them up when I was given them and they meet the NIH recommendations. I visited their website and they seem to take care of everything from a one pill to a two pill to a chewable to even one without omega 3s if you don't want to take those. I love them!
