907968 tn?1292625804 Also, they are now prescribing statins before and after invasive surgical procedures as a result of their anti-inflammatory properties which is why they are also being used now to treat pneumonia. Larry, Crestor is more powerful that Simvastatin, however the dangerous side effects are really only a factor once your dosage exceeds 80mg.
Avatar m tn I've supplemented with vitd3 ever since, and my levels have come up to normal. I searched what simvastatin is on internet and it says it is used for those with high cholesterol and/or diabetes, which I don't have luckily. So this drug is not for me, I think. What PH test, is it an acidity/alkalinity test?
1772456 tn?1314126696 another way that has used to change immune system from tollerant to active is entecavir+interferon, but it was mostly a failure because immune system just started to kill liver cells without clearing the virus so condition just worsened, very few clear hbv on this combo adding interferon to entecavir you may block hbv mutants and slowly stop both entecavir and then interferon.
Avatar m tn I would think that if the pain is a strong issue with what he is on you need to rethink the game plan. Dont want to medicate him to a coma........but you dont want him in 24/7 pain either. Tough one here..... Do you have any reason to suspect that he was addicted to the pain meds at anytime? Sometimes when you take pain meds for a term they will subject you to opiate pain syndrome...... the brain actually tries to convince the body that the body is in pain and requires a dose of narcotics.
Avatar f tn The pm was quite unpleasant , verging on rude and I actually feel like posting it, but don't know if it is ethical to do it. I am not used to people speaking to me in that tone and the ignorance really pi$$ed me off.
Avatar m tn Doctor told me to treat with tenofovir, because your fibroscan is F2. I ask him to treat me with interferon, because I thougth that my hbsag is declining and is <1500 IU/ml., and doctor said ok , but we have to wait 1 month for interferon, because it will be delivered to hospital.\ My question is : Is my decision good to go for second time for interferon or to treat this time with tenofovir?
Avatar m tn No matter what treatment arm you land these are proven drugs commonly used to treat hbv. I don't care what people say that its immune tolerant as its never confirmed 100% and with high load you are always at higher risk of cancer. Even if it doesn't work the fact that I'm trying something for it helps my psychology a lot - even if its for these couple of weeks. I was like you chasing my thoughts in my brain and after starting treatment I feel a lot better.
Avatar n tn I have been hesitant to start viral treatment because of long-term side effects. I knew there is no cure for HBV. My doctor's aim to treat is to prevent the liver from cirrhosis and HCC. She said viral treatments can stop viral replication. My sonogram in Feb 2011 acc to my doctor did not show any cirrhosis or HCC. How often does one have to go for sonogram of the liver? A doctor from Mt Sinai from this site recommended holding off treatment. He suggested testing for genotype.
469720 tn?1388149949 This recommendation is based on recent analyses strongly suggesting that triglycerides are indeed an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease. The decision to treat is generally based on the triglyceride levels themselves. Normal triglyceride levels are less than 150 mg/dL. Borderline high levels are 150-199 mg/dl. High levels are 200 - 499 mg/dL, and very high triglyceride levels are greater than 500 mg/dL.
Avatar n tn Remember that hbv, when it becomes chronic, is not easy to treat. You have to be patient. Which country/city are you in? Maybe some member can suggest a good hepatologist of that country/city who can supervise/monitor your treatment, look at side effects if any, and suggest tests as and when required etc.
Avatar m tn Low cholesterol gives opportunity for virus to replicate? And what is red yeast rice?

Is there is to need any treatment or any vaccination? Please guide me in right way. Is it passible that hepatitis B surface antigen become negative or not please tell to reduced tension.
Avatar f tn My diet changed to include many apples, Oranges, Pairs, Green salads,and salmon... I also had what I used to have but much less of it (greasy foods). I'm on 40mg Simvastatin daily since April and exorcising relatively regularly until about 30 days before the November test where exorcising was sparatic.
Avatar m tn I don't know what to say on this case if is ok or not to start treatment , but @stef2011 can have a comment on this, he have more knowledge on this. to treat or not to treat is always a hard question.
Avatar f tn I know it's got to be very scary, but I'm hoping that with this surgery they will finally be able to find what is causing your pain and begin to treat you appropriately. I'm afraid I don't know a whole lot about the liver enzyme levels, other than mine have been elevated in the past also - usually when I'm sick with something else - and they, so far, have always gone back to normal. At one point, my levels were actually even higher than yours, which was a very scary situation.
Avatar m tn yes of course it is better to have full vit d levels because ntz uses interferon pathways and interferon+vit d levels has increased svr on hcv if you have a chance to use simvastatin i'd start that too before ntz, also sim is able to increase interferon response because interferon acts same way as sim by lowering intracellular cholesterol levels, sim is less potent on intracellular cholesterol but better than nothing What about your latest d3 level? Hopefully the earlier report war wrong.
Avatar m tn 1.suffering to relief; 2.relief to cure and 3.cure to ailment free ness. What do you think?
Avatar m tn In three of these potential inhibitors, irbesartan has less controversial safety profile although simvastatin has been proven to work... used bu Otan.. I need opinion please. History: e-antigen negative. Been on intf for 5 months. Alt had been high and over 230 before and during treatment.
Avatar m tn Also, with this high Hbsag, does this mean Fibrosis and/or Cirrhosis is inevitable to me? What measure can I take now? I want to fight this Hep B within my means by God's grace, I don't want to take chance as I don't want to die young. I'm 29 now.
Avatar m tn Larger doses of statin drugs are associated with greater likelihood of side effects, and additional risk factors such as other drugs, older age, diabetes and high triglycerides also increase the likelihood of adverse effects. In addition to these known adverse effects, there is debate over whether statins may have detrimental effects on brain function. Approximately 17 percent of patients who take a statin experience an adverse effect.
Avatar m tn i think you are immune tollerant and you MUST NOT treat if so, you just develop mutants and resistance to all drugs the virus makes no damage so until there is no immune response you must not treat because you get worst if you treat what is ast/alt and fibroscan or biopsy?do you have a doctors who knows what he is doing?
Avatar n tn Warfarin is used to prevent blood clots, and is often prescribed for patients with afib (though it is also used for other reasons). Simvastatin is used to treat patients with elevated cholesterol. Ramipril is an ACE inhibitor, commonly used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure. It appears that your friend has been prescribed a number of medications to treat his heart failure, afib and elevated BP.
Avatar m tn Is it okay to take all 4 heptech products daily (chronic hepatitis b)? Is it okay to take the heptech products with undergoing pegint 2a treatment ? On HBV varying between 2000-5000 What other things should you take or do to improve treatment (heptech+pegint2+?) ?
Avatar m tn Thanks that is a great amount of info to digest but there are some topics of great interest to me I love coffee and the stronger the better I have limited my coffee intake to three strong cups a day so maybe my high intake of caffeine all my life was a good thing will check it out and more thanks again for your dilegence in always providing informative info
Avatar n tn Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, medicines used in chemotherapy to treat cancer, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants. Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines. Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes.
Avatar n tn But the best thing you can do for her is to encourage her to see a doctor and ask for his or her expert opinion on Revovir. But just to give you an idea what this medicine is about, Revovir is a widely accepted and affordable treatment for hepatitis b. In South Korea, Revovir has been approved for the treatment of chronic hepatitis b. [See link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20196804].
921323 tn?1268679412 The key point here is to stop drinking soda rather than switching to diet soda. Some studies even suggest that drinking diet soda can result in weight gain too. 6) Soup is good food. The commercials are true - soup is good for you. Avoid the creamy and cheesy options and fill up on broth-based vegetable soups. Eating soup before a meal will satisfy you and result in eating fewer calories overall. 7) The kitchen is a no-fly zone after dinner.
