So, that means nobody really knows what side effects there are. If an herbalife user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit her primary care doctor. ...Read more

Please explain the high glucose level and high fbs in patients with myocardial infarction?

Many people have had diabetes (which actually contributes to them having an MI) but it doesn't get diagnosed until they're in the hospital for the MI. MI is a serious stress to the body, and two principle stress hormones, epinephrine and cortisol, raise blood sugar. Control diabetes! ...Read more

I accidently spent 30 minutes with a patient during a myocardial perfusion scan while I am 3 weeks pregnant. Will it cause problems for my baby?

No: I work in a cardiac cath lab and my nurse was pregnanat and wore a badge outside her lead apron. It received essentially zero radiation despite hours and hours of exposure. The key is the inverse square law. The radiation drops off very quickly as you move inches away from the source (the patient's bloodstream). You have had a negligible exposure - you get more on a sunny day! ...Read more

However if a patient does have anemia and coronary artery disease then the anemia can make it more likely that they have a heart attack. This is because with anemia the heart and body are not getting proper oxygen and this puts a strain on the heart and can result in heart attack. ...Read more
