Carbonic Acid Poisoning
Can close proximity to lead acid battery in my work environment for back-up power lead to poisoning?
Not usually: Not usually, unless something is seriously wrong with that battery.
Toxic ingestion (also called "poisoning") is a condition in which a person has eaten or drank a substance that causes ill symptoms or damage to his body. Taking an overdose of a medicine, taking any dose of a poison, drinking too much vodka, or accidentally drinking antifreeze. . . are all ...Read more
After food poisoning, appetite down. Feel full w/ acid reflux after 40-50% normal portions. What is the science that causes that?
Taste buds: The taste buds in your stomach (yes you have them there too - read about them in yourdoctorsorders. Com) will delay the emptying of the stomach so you will eat less and have reflux.
What do you recomend for hydrochloric acid poisoning entering the blood stream probably caused by pancreas.?
Unknown: With respect a condition I have quite frankly unaware of.
Would uric acid stones show up necessarily in bloodwork? Or more so in urinalysis. My grandfather died of urea poisoning from kidneys. Very scared
Uric Acid: The stones would not be picked up in the blood, but the uric acid is easily tested. Your physician can easily request this from the lab or may have already tested you.
Many possibilities.: Lead was used as an additive to paints used in home building years ago & the inhalation of paint dust during renovations, or kids chewing on cribs painted with lead paint provided some. Exposure to clothes of someone working in around lead (battery reclamation) or that from lead paint on decorative dishes were also common. Removal of lead from many of these products has reduced public risk.
Lead in environment: Sources of lead include old paint (babies chewing on windowsills); soil near a highway; pottery with lead based glaze (usually imported); and some toys have been found to have lead based paint (again- imported. Lead based paint is no longer used in the US.See 1 more doctor answer
Toxicologists: Physicians with specialty training in dealing with poisonings are toxicologists. However many physicians, internists, ER docs, pediatricians, family practice, are quite comfortable dealing with many of these issues also.See 1 more doctor answer
See a specialist: The first thing to do is to make sure that you find the source of the lead so that you can stop the exposure. Next you need to see a doctor that knows how to treat this kind of condition. It may just take watchful waiting or you may need to go through a treatment called chelation.See 1 more doctor answer
M.D. visit: Lead is an environmental toxin and measurements of high levels in the bloodstream require treatment. Avoiding the source of lead, having your home and water supply inspected for possibly sources may be completed by the health department. Please check with your doctor for treatment recommendations based on the level in your bloodstream. I hope this helps.
Gluten: In all practical terms, there is no such thing as Gordon poisoning. In the rear patients who have true celiac disease, it is vital to avoid all gluten because of reactions to it. In people who feel that they have intolerance to gluten, there are very in degrees as to how aggressively they need to avoid them. They are not poisoned by them, however. Hope this helps.
It depends.: This depends on what you mean by poisoning. If you mean renal failure, this has symptoms like high BUN and creatinine (azotemia), hematuria, proteinuria, and dehydration or edema depending on the type of renal failure. If prerenal (beforethe kidney), bun/cr ratio is >20:1, renal <10-15:1, and postrenal has a high BUN of 150 if advanced. Causes like sle, strep., etc. Have unique signs (eg c3c).
Industry: Known exposures are usually in industry, and depending where you are, industrial medicine / hygiene may be imperfect and allow unfortunate things to happen. Lead from paint / plumbing in old homes is serious. Arsenic and less often thallium are homicidal poisons; I've run into both. There are crooked labs that will overdiagnose heavy metal poisoning. Good luck sorting it out.
