How can protein help injury healing and rehab?

How can protein help injury healing and rehab?

Yes, but....: A 'normal' diet is critical for proper healing and rehab. The answer to needing a protein supplement is probably no. Just be certain to eat a balanced diet and you should do well. If you have a diet that does not incorporate meat proteins or a decreased protein intake then you may need to supplement. Have fun and get better.

Chronic whiplash injury and luq has malfunctioned.  Brachial plexus triggers nerve  symptoms but nerves not injured. Starting rehab. Healing possible?

Get diagnosis first: Be efficient, and get answers as to why your injury did not fully heal. Not uncommon is an injury to the brachial plexus from shoulder strap, with eventual scarring, called thoracic outlet syndrome. Therapy does help, but is a specific approach, such as felderkreis work. Both EMG and ultrasound studies could pin down precise mechanism. If you have tos, about 85% success with conservative rx.

Report = urinalysis?: Usama, whoever ordered the test should be able to tell you why it was ordered, what it means and what you can do about it. Good Luck.

What is the treatment for high c-reactive protein?

What is the treatment for high c-reactive protein?

Hold on!: Hs-c-reactive protein is a marker associated with vascular inflammation and is a risk factor for coronary heart disease. Proof of causality, though, is a bit more problematic, though intriguing: google "jupiter trial". All statins lower hs-crp to some degree, but also independently reduce cardiovascular risk, so separating out the impact of lowering CRP alone is difficult & remains controversial.

What is the treatment options for high protein in urine?

What is the treatment options for high protein in urine?

FInd the cause: Don't treat lab values. You've had radiation therapy for something, so you're no stranger to the health care system. Insist that your physician can tell whether the cause of the protien in your urine is clear, or whether you'll need a further workup. The protein itself is not harmful, but it's a marker for underlying illness. Most often, it's orthostatic proteinuria, a non-problem.

Is there a number one doctor-recommended protein powder for recovery and healing?

Magical Powders: Remember that regardless of what you eat or drink, it is all broken down to the most basic building blocks of amino acids, starches and fats via our digestive systems. The more complex the starting product, the more it takes to break it down but the endpoints are always the same. The keys to healing are to stay well hydrated, eat well balanced meals, avoid excess salt and sugar and relax.

Would suppliments like whey protein or creatine powders help or hinder healing of pulled muscles?

Would suppliments like whey protein or creatine powders help or hinder healing of pulled muscles?

Likely neither: Eating extra protein or extra Amino Acids is sort of like eating a second helping of roast pork loin, grilled chicken breast, or scrambled egg whites. The foods taste better, cost less, are more natural, and should support healing just as well.

What is the treatment if one person has all of these:  protein s, protein c and anti thrombin III deficinecy?

Unlikely situation: It is very unlikely for a person to be deficient in all of these proteins. However, deficiency of even one predisposes a person to abnormal clotting and long tern treatment with warfarin may be needed.

I have protein c and s defencies and had bila PEs 4 years ago.. I also have dilated left ventricle from this what is recommended treatment and diet?

Long term AC: With known coagulation abnormalities & bilateral pulmonary emboli you have likely been advised to continue anti-coagulation (probably with warfarin) long term. Close monitoring is vital. If you have some heart issues, medications might be indicated & you should follow-up with a cardiologist. Diet: watch vit K on warfarin but otherwise fruits, veggies, healthy grains & fats, maintain heathy weight.

Hair Conditioning: Normal hair only needs a deep conditioning once a month. A deep conditioner usually needs to be left on the hair for at least 5 minutes and some up to 20 minutes. Some require a shower cap to be placed over the hair while it is conditioning. Some deep conditioners contain anti-oxidants like cranberry oil which help repair damage caused by pollution. Cranberry oil contains vitamin e, omega-3, other.

Keratin Treatment: One of the biggest concerns and cons of using keratin treatments is the risk of one’s health. The department of labor issued a hazard alert for keratin treatments, stating the dangers of the formaldehyde. While keratin treatments have yet to be banned, the danger associated with being around the chemicals used in the treatment poses health concerns for both the stylist and you!

I broke my 5th metatarsal in my right foot and i'm down for 6wks. Can i lose weight by drinking protein shakes & still promote bone healing?

I broke my 5th metatarsal in my right foot and i'm down for 6wks. Can i lose weight by drinking protein shakes & still promote bone healing?

Losing weight: Maybe if your total calories decrease by the increased number in the shakes. Even though you may be "down" or off your feet for 6 weeks, you can still do upper extremity work outs or core exercises to burn off calories. A healthy diet is best, protein shakes are really for increasing muscle mass, not losing weight. You may gain more weight without extra bone healing benefit.

Is there is Treatment of Protein (albumin ++) in urine that comes due to obstruction of urine, now obstruction is clear,creatinine is 1 within normal?

Not normal: Blood test OK but ++ albumin not normal. Need to repeat and follow, hope it clears with time. Persistent albumen of this extent will be evaluated in case it is due to kidney disease.

Protein-Losing Enteropathy in the intestine. Protein levels slowly improving. What is best treatment options for me? Is lymphoma a cause or concern?

Protein-Losing Enteropathy in the intestine. Protein levels slowly improving. What is best treatment options for me? Is lymphoma a cause or concern?

Enteropathy: Protein loss from the gastrointestinal tract is usually due to the massive overexcretion of mucous from areas of overgrowth of normal lining. The classic is Menetriere's Disease which is an overgrowth of the normal lining in the stomach. Lymphoma can cause protein loss from the gi tract. If you have not seen a GI MD do so.

Apart from treatment & medication, does high protein intake enhance the recovery process of patients suffering from koch's spine & psoas abscess?

Apart from treatment & medication, does high protein intake enhance the recovery process of patients suffering from koch's spine & psoas abscess?

I think it dose: A high-protein diet is recommended by many medical professionals for healing wounds or burns, because protein helps repair the body's organs and tissues. Lack of protein may decrease a person's immune system and his ability to heal from sickness and injuries. Eating a diet rich in protein from natural sources, and possibly from supplementation, may speed healing and decrease recovery time.
