What are tocotrienols supplements used for?

What are tocotrienols supplements used for?

Vit E: Vitamin e is not a single vitamin, but rather has 8 subtypes, 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. Different subtypes are good for different things, and all have value. It is therefore not good to take too much of just one subtype. Vit e should be taken as a mix. ...Read more

I have read that taking gamma tocotrienols targets prostate cancer stem cells. Is this true?

I have read that taking gamma tocotrienols targets prostate cancer stem cells. Is this true?

No: There's lots of smoke but no fire. Every study has been done in cell culture, and nothing is proven in humans. I did a quick search and the top hits are people selling the supplements. For a scientific answer, see: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/11937432. ...Read more

Is a delta wave in my ECG harmful?

Is a delta wave in my ECG harmful?

It depends.: Delta waves are present in patients with wolf-parkinson-white syndrome (wpw). This condition can be associated with rapid arrhytmias. In some patients it may be asymptomatic. Patients with serious rhythm disorders can be treated with ablation of the accessory electrical pathway which results in abolition of the arrhythmias. At experienced centers the success rate is very good. ...Read more

ACTH-16, 5ng/L RANGE=9.0 - 52.0; CORTISOL - 18, 9μg/dL RANGE=6, 2 - 19, 4; DELTA 4-ANDROSTENODIONA - 6, 4ng/mL RANGE = 0, 6 - 3, 1. Any ideas please? Thanks

Why?: The only idea I have is why are you getting all these measurements? Who is your doctor? What's the question? Stop measuring things in the hope of finding something. ...Read more

Anyone used a delta wave sleep aid?

Anyone used a delta wave sleep aid?

Why would you: Although it is commonly stated that slow wave sleep (stage n3 sleep, stage 3/4 sleep, delta sleep) is needed for sleep to be refreshing, there is no evidence to show that. The amount and continuity of sleep is more important than what stage and how much time in each stage (except that too much time in stage n1 might not be as refreshing). ...Read more

How does delta-12 prostaglandin j relate to cancer?

How does delta-12 prostaglandin j relate to cancer?

Slim pickings: Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/21967980 It's toxic to leukemia stem cells in one mouse model, or seemed to be so in one lab. I couldn't find anybody reproducing the work, and stuff that sounds too good to be true usually turns out not to be true. This is being used to get people to take omega-3 pills despite the recent work showing them to be worthless for older claims. Be discerning. ...Read more

Can you still get infected with HIV if someone is a delta 32 carrier?

Can you still get infected with HIV if someone is a delta 32 carrier?

If you have one: Copy of the mutation in the ccr5 gene, you can get infected but the disease does not progress as easily. If you have two copies, you can't be infected. By one or two copies, I mean we each have 2 copies of the nonsex chromosomes. ...Read more

Why is there a delta wave seen in Wolff-Parkinson-White (wpw) syndrome?

Pre-excitation: Wpw syndrome is commonly diagnosed on the basis of the surface ECG in an asymptomatic individual. In this case it is manifested as a delta wave, which is a slurred upstroke in the qrs complex that is associated with a short pr interval. The short pr interval and slurring of the qrs complex is actually the impulse making it through to the ventricles prematurely (across the accessory pathway) withou. ...Read more

Is delta wave always prominent 100% of the time on EKG in people with wpw?

Is delta wave always prominent 100% of the time on EKG in people with wpw?

No: If electricle impulse from top chamber travels throw, WPW pathway delta wave shows up, if impulse travels throw normal pathway we do not see delta wave. ...Read more

What's the reasoning behind the gamma-delta t cells ability to destroy tumor and virally infected cells?

What's the reasoning behind the gamma-delta t cells ability to destroy tumor and virally infected cells?

Lymphocytes are: Immune mediators. B cells make antibody. T cells recognize foreign tissue (reject transplants), viral, fungal disease and memory, and recognize tumor antigens (surveillance) natural killer cells can destroy; blocking antibodies can protect, cd-4 t's (helpers) are low in hiv. No idea about gamma or delta other than greek letters sequenced after Alpha and beta. ...Read more

Will medicine delta carbon (medicinal charcoal) causes stool to turn blackish? But mixes with a bit brown? Is it normal?

Yes but y take it: It adsorbs to its surface and thus prevents you from you from getting it into your body. Why are you taking the activated charcoal in the first place? ...Read more

Can listening to delta waves at night, or any brainwaves help with anxiety and depression?

Can listening to delta waves at night, or any brainwaves help with anxiety and depression?

Help (not cure): I'm so glad you used the word 'help' that I want to be as affirmative as possible. I've never heard of this Tx but it could have a useful placebo effect and many medical procedures take advantage of this. If there are no dangers and it will not deprive you of money needed for other things - see what it does. Remember that there are other options. It's NOT recognized as a Tx so be careful. Best! ...Read more

Disorganized activity of 7-8 c/sec alpha theta mix with delta waves nearly symetrical & synchronous over both hemisphere general cerebral dysrhythmia?

Question?: If you are trying to assess the meaning of this EEG finding, it is best to go over it with your ordering physician. The EEG is meaningless without a clinical context, which presumably is why it was ordered. Speak to the ordering physician. ...Read more

Can you tell me about delta motion hip replacement surgery?

Can you tell me about delta motion hip replacement surgery?

Ceramic hip: You may be referring to the Delta Motion Type of hip prosthesis made by Depuy. It offers a larger femoral had that is made of ceramic. The potential positives include lower wear of the bearing surface vs. A metal head and plastic liner and more stability due to the increased head dieameter. The drawbacks are that some ceramic heads have been associated with a squeak and are harder to revise. ...Read more

I'm a gay male, that is intrested in this guy, who is a top, and has the delta 32 gene and was wondering what my chances are to geting the hiv?

See below: Many forms of HIV initially use ccr5 to infect host cells. Some people carry a mutation known as ccr5-? 32 in the ccr5 gene, protecting them against these strains of hiv. Unless u also have this ccr5-? 32 mutation, u are at risk for hiv. Even still, always practice safe sex! if he refuses to use condom or safe sex techniques, avoid sex with him. Getting HIV is no trade-off for few moments of fun. ...Read more

Consistently short pr interval no matter what heart rate is. Interval is always 98-110 but no delta wave. Will I get ventricular arrhythmias?

Consistently short pr interval no matter what heart rate is. Interval is always 98-110 but no delta wave. Will I get ventricular arrhythmias?

Not necessarily: You are young so your short pr interval may represent normal accelerated av conduction. It is also possible you may have a pre-excitation syndrome such as lgl, which should be evaluated by your pcp. Good luck. ...Read more
