Wondering about the cure for all the issue of bonne marrow like mudullary hypoplasia culullarity 25 % cause virus or chemical and more?

Need big picture: If the cellularity of a hip or sternal marrow is only 25% at your age (a bit lower than most), it raises concern, but the needle may simply have hit an island with few cells, and a number like this means nothing without clinical information. If one of the three major cells lines is greatly diminished, or looks abnormal, or there's something else, it would tell us more. Let us know? ...Read more

Can neurotransmitter imbalances be a primary cause of sleep apnea, such that double bi-maxillary advancement will not cure? If so what tests should you have and what type of doctor should I see?

Can neurotransmitter imbalances be a primary cause of sleep apnea, such that double bi-maxillary advancement will not cure? If so what tests should you have and what type of doctor should I see?

Sleep apnea: Sleep apnea can be either obstructive or central. Correct diagnosis by a witnessed, overnight sleep study at an accredited center is essential. If obstructive, see an ENT to rule out obstructions (deviated septum, tonsils, adenoids). If the lower jaw is retruded, causing blockage of the airway, a neuromuscularly determined appliance made by a dentist can avoid the surgery. ...Read more

Further evaluation of your symptoms would be recommended. ...Read more
