Hypokinesis / HF: The heart is divided in multiple segments. Ex. Anterior, Posterior, Lateral, etc Your segments can by hypokinetic, dyskinetic, akinetic. If a segment is hypokinetic it does not contact fully. Akinetic, does not move. So this info I assume comes from echocardiogram report. Global Hypokinesis means every segment in your heart contracts less. = Heart Failure http://goo.gl/wXzTvs Cheers C!

A 48-year-old member asked:

Do men often start balding at the crown?

Varies: More than 95% of hair thinning in men is male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia. Male pattern baldness is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead (known as a "receding hairline") and/or a thinning crown (balding to the area known as the ‘vertex’). Both become more pronounced until they eventually meet, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair back of head.

See a gynecologist: Find the source of the pain. If there is vaginal dryness, for example, from menopause, then topical Estrogens can help, as well as over the counter lubricants. But first, a full pelvic examination is indicated.

Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
Tools for assessment: A voiding diary, or bladder diary, is a way to relate fluid intake with voiding behavior. It is usually performed over 24 or 48 hours, and the time and amount fluids are taken, the time and amount of voids, and any episodes of leakage or symptoms are noted. Doctors use this data to find patterns and help to diagnose problems in urine storage and voiding.
