What's the best  things to do for someone with chrones?

See a good doctor: Crohn's disease is "forever" & often waxes/wanes in activity with time. Ongoing, even low-grade, inflammation can cause scarring, obstruction, fistulas, malabsorption, higher risk of infection & cancer. You need a professional relationship with a crohn's-informed doctor (usually gastroenterologist) who can minimize flares, monitor you, & treat disease when active. Lots of new rxs available now. ...Read more

Im a merchant mariner with mg should I changes career due to this decease...Everything is back to normal but I have doubts?

Glad you're good: Nice to hear from you again. Today, myasthenia gravis is usually manageable. You want to stay in this great profession, and for that reason alone i'd encourage you to continue. I'd seek another, or a change of job within the merchant marine itself, only if you realize you can no longer keep up. With today's biotech, that day may very well never come. ...Read more

Is it known what causes colitus and chrones disease?

Is it known what causes colitus and chrones disease?

Yes and no: We know what happens, but not why. Very briefly, ulcerative colitis (uc) and crohn's are distinct but similar, and involve dysregulation of the immune system in the gut. There are certain genetic risks, but we don't know for sure why the process happens in some people but not others, so in that sense we don't know what directly causes them.

Either one...: Or stay the same. Depends on circumstances. When you have been quiet like sleeping in bed, your blood pressure rises when you rise and become active. But sometimes if you have been sitting a while and you get up you can have pooling of blood in your peripheral circulation and it decreases. So both can happen ...Read more

Is continuous discharge a normal thing to have? And when does it get to that point where it actually turns into a decease?

Is continuous discharge a normal thing to have? And when does it get to that point where it actually turns into a decease?

Probably normal: Vaginal secretions are normal. If the discharge is clear, or white or even yellow, it is probably normal. It becomes a problem if the discharge goes along with vaginal itching or burning, or if the odor changes and is very strong and "fishy" smelling. If that happens, see your doctor. ...Read more

I read book saying that plant based diet helps reduce the risk of various deceases. Are there more recent large scale studies about this?

I read book saying that plant based diet helps reduce the risk of various deceases. Are there more recent large scale studies about this?

No: Most scientists reject the china study's conclusions. Campbell did a historical review of mao-era (no animal food available) death certificates, which he accepted uncritically.; he promised peer-reviewable studies that never appeared. And his near-vegan patients died much younger than we do. He then wrote a paper praising eating fish. Yet many vegans feel much better, and i admire commitment. ...Read more

Iam 28 years old male, I have chrone disease and i want to know if this can lead to cancer and what nutrition plan should I follow, thank you, hani.

Yes, unfortunately: There is an association between ibd ( especially ulcerative colitis) and colon cancer. The risk will depend on the extent, duration, and activity of disease. . Pancolitis confers a 5- to 15-fold increase in risk. Although, data is less. It appears that pancolitis due to crohn's disease is associated with a similar relative risk of colon ca as extensive uc. Extensive surveillance is needed. ...Read more

This is a good respo: Your tumor has shown excellent response. The PET SUV below 3 is considered near normal...your's is almost there.
Ask you doctor to check the size of your lymphoma node tumor before treatment and now. The enlarged nodes should have reduced or resolved by now. Also inquire about the value of radiotherapy to the affected lymph nodes...that is a part of the treatment in most cases. ...Read more

Can i contract a decease from chewing on a used band aid that was in the food? No blood appeared to be on it.

Can i contract a decease from chewing on a used band aid that was in the food? No blood appeared to be on it.

Disease spread: It would be incredibly unlikely. Nothing is impossible, and there are many food borne illnesses, but a used band aid that was on a superficial skin wound, is likely to harbor only superficial skin organisms, which should be digested by saliva and gastric enzymes. If there was blood on it, and it was from someone with hepatitis C, and the blood was fresh and hadn't tried out, it is possible. ...Read more
