Has anyone had patients who out of blue gained several inches in height at nearly 40YO? No other problems/symptoms; just added ht. What would cause it
I never know what to believe online. Has anybody had patients who actually grew noticably taller @ 40? Can't find online what possibly could cause it.
Growth in the 40s: This can be due to a rare disease called acromegaly, other features include enlargement of the jaw, hands and feet, it needs about 10 years to be noticed, other features hypertension, diabetes, joints problems and carpal tunnel syndrome. the cause of this disease is usually a tiny benign tumor in the pituitary, and diagnosed by blood test and possible imaging of the brainSee 1 more doctor answer

Need to c physician: Your friend needs to see a physician for lab tests to see what's going on. Start w/ a PCP who can direct from there.
Nerve cell changes: Ther is evidence that part of the pain of fibromyalgia may be caused by a phenomenon known as central sensitization in which nerve cells that detect and transmit pain signals become overly sensitive and can fire excessively in in response to what should be a non-painful or mildly uncomfortable stimulus.See 3 more doctor answers
Blockage by material: A shunt may accumulate proteinaceous material on it inner diameter. Slow flow may also cause clotting of the shunt.See 1 more doctor answer
Good question: Although not a cardinal symptom for ZES, as abdominal pain, diarrhoea, heart burn, etc. Nausea can affect patients with the disease. Nausea can be due to a lot of causes, considered a precursor for vomiting, not always though, and also a protective mechanism to avoid more harm to the GI tract. Increased acidity in ZES with disrupted GI motility would induce the nausea, although it is more complexSee 1 more doctor answer
Law of thirds!: One third of patients with hyperuricemia are undersecretors, . One trhird are overproducers of uric acid. And one third are both. Overproduction is primarily genetic and associated with many other risk factors for metabolic syndrome and subsequent atherovascular diseases. Under secretion may be genetic, but there are many more modifiable factors at play. Lead poisoning can cause under excretion.
Primary or secondary: Elevated platelets (thrombocytosis) can be primary (driven by a bone marrow disorder) or secondary (eg, reactive). Reactive/secondary is the most common, with some frequent associated conditions including iron deficiency anemia, reactive (eg, pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, post surgical). Thrombocytosis that goes away is likely reactive. Primary can be evaluated for by labs & bone marrow biopsy.
Vast number: Of diseases. This can be caused by any neurologic insult, infectious issues, metabolic issues, etc. Coma is a very vague medical term that people don't use often in medical terminology because it does not tell us much. I am sorry I cannot be more direct with an answer, but without more history, I cannot clarify it any further. Again, the list is immense that can cause someone to fall into a coma.
?: Do you mean inserting an IV? There would be no effect because medicines that vasodilate tend to work on arterioles, not superficial veins.
Every 3 - 4 hours: Preventing bed sores is extremely important in a bedridden patient. Turning every 3 - 4 hours should suffice for most patients. Watch the sacrum and the heels, which are very susceptible. There are special beds available which can help as well.
I'm an oxygen dependent patient. I have o2 stats of 83 but all my tests are always normal. What can cause this?
Good morning. . .: I would presume that since you are on Oxygen, at such a young age, you must be seeing a specialist already. This sounds to me, to be a more complicated issue than what we can answer through this type of venue. Also, if you are checking your O2 sats at home, please be certain that it is working properly--maybe use it on family or friends who are not oxygen dependent.
How common do u see young patient with stroke. Is it becoming more cpmmon in young. Also what would be most common cause?
I am a medical first responder wondering about the main causes of neurocardiasyscope I need to know about this for a patient
Is a symptom: Neurocardiac syncope is "fainting" most commonly benign vasovagal (due to sudden activity of vagus nerve which slows heart rate). Can be due to sudden drop in blood pressureby heart slowing down or blood vessels dilating, neurologic, metabolic, psychiatric (eg anxiety) and cardiac causes. But basically all caused by sudden nerve activity.
