Hydroxyprogesterone hexanoate is androgen precursor with elimination half-life 7.8 d,for an injection 5ml of 250 mg/mL what is such androgenic effect?

Hydroxyprogesterone hexanoate is androgen precursor with elimination half-life 7.8 d,for an  injection 5ml of 250 mg/mL what is such androgenic effect?

A Hairy Proposition: In women, excess amounts of androgens can cause such "virilizing" effects as acne, hirsutism (excess hair growth in "inappropriate" places, like the chin or upper lip) and thinning hair. Long-time use is associated with serious health consequences, such as insulin resistance and diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. It all sounds like lots of fun, doesn't it? ...Read more

DoesPrazosin/other alpha blocks act on non-vascular smooth muscle e.g. the throat?If sudafed is alpha stim and contricts nasal,wouldnt it make sense?

DoesPrazosin/other alpha blocks act on non-vascular smooth muscle e.g. the throat?If sudafed is alpha stim and contricts nasal,wouldnt it make sense?

Good question: Alphablockers used to treat hypertension seem to be specific for their action on arteriolar musculature as far as I can tell clinically. Sudafed constricts smooth muscle in vessel walls, but can stimulate smooth muscle in the lower urinary tract and cause urinary retention at times. A pharmacologist would be best qualified to answer your question however. ...Read more

Hydroxyprogesterone caproate is androgen precursor used to lower the risk of a preterm baby,if an injection of 250mg what are its androgenic effect?

Precursor: 17 OH Progesterone is a precursor to androgens and when combines with caproic acid to form 17 OH P caproate it is then used for preterm labor. There are no known androgenic effects that I am aware of that are clinically meaningful and it is currently a category B drug by the FDA. ...Read more

Effects of mtfhr gene heterozygous c/t over time? Most effective treatment folic acid or it's metabolite?

Effects of mtfhr gene heterozygous c/t over time? Most effective treatment folic acid or it's metabolite?

Unknown: I do not entirely understand your question (what does c/t over time mean?). The mtfhr gene mutation is associated with coronary artery disease. It is not clear if Folic Acid helps. It would be helpful to see an internist or a cardiologist to discuss risk reduction. ...Read more

Deficiencies in gene: Due 2 infection are unlikely the cause of poor vit d function, it's usually vit d deficiency, lack of sunlight. Not sure, it's low probability.

Are beta blockers alone effective in vasodilation around the heart or is combination therapy neccessary, i.e. ace-inhibitors, calcium blockers, etc?

Are beta blockers alone effective in vasodilation around the heart or is combination therapy neccessary, i.e. ace-inhibitors, calcium blockers, etc?

BB not vasodilators: The medicines you mention act in three different ways and depending in what you are trying to achieve they can be used separately or together for a variety of conditions, from hypertension to even heart failure (although cal antagonists not recommended for the latter). But beta blockers are not vasodilators ...Read more

Is there any side effects with this homeopathic drugs  (1) baryta carb 30.  (2)  silicea 12x.  (3)  symphytum q?

No, but effects may:: With rare exceptions, homeopathic remedies are very safe and do not cause "side effects" but occasionally the effects of the medicines are an aggravation, which is a mild temporary worsening of pre-existing symptoms before you start feeling better. While this usually does not occur, when it does happen it is considered a sign that the remedy is having a positive effect on the patient. ...Read more

Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C

Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C

Growth factors: We have known since the 70s that retinoids and retinols are great collagen stimulators (which equals wrinkle fighters). In this century, we developed collagen growth factors which are derived from actual human skin and are necessary for collagen to thrive, thus reducing and eliminating wrinkles. Note i did not say "appearance of wrinkles". Skinmedica is my favorite product to contain these. ...Read more

For me, pregnenolone = a powerful mood stabilizer, antidepressant, anxiolytic & sensory sensitivity reducer. What could this mean? Adrenal issue?

For me, pregnenolone = a powerful mood stabilizer, antidepressant, anxiolytic & sensory sensitivity reducer. What could this mean? Adrenal issue?

Intriguing: There are some early research studies that suggest that pregnenalone may indeed do what you're describing. It's too early to consider it a psychiatric drug for anxiety and mood disorders. But who knows what the next year or two might uncover. (to prove absolutely that it is not an adrenal issue will require some blood work ordered by your doc. ...Read more

At which temperature (bodily and external) the MTHFR enzyme, a result of heterozygous C677T mutation, becomes thermolabile, i.e.inactive? Thank you.

At which temperature (bodily and external) the MTHFR enzyme, a result of heterozygous C677T mutation, becomes thermolabile, i.e.inactive? Thank you.

N/A: The mutation which causes dysfunction of the MTHFR enzyme is genetic - it doesn't happen because of a variation in body temperature. The rare disorder that this causes is characterized by a possibility of inappropriate clot formation, which can result in stroke or heart attack. However, a person proven to have this mutation may never actually experience such a thrombotic event. ...Read more
