Can laser photocoagulation be used to treat macular degeneration? I'm 65 and was recently diagnosed with macular degeneration. I want to do whatever I can to prevent myself from going blind. Is laser photocoagulation a safe treatment to cure my condition?

Not really

Macular_degeneration
Modern treatment of macular degeneration involves the use of laser photocoagulation less and less. Most people have dry macular degeneration which does not require surgical intervention. For those with the wet form, drugs are used much more than lasers today. Regardless of the treatment, we cannot cure macular degeneration currently. We can only manage it.

Can u still get toxic mega colon if ur on treatment for c diff? Or will treatment prevent that

C. difficile

Colon
The answer depends upon your response to medications. There are strains of Cl. difficile that are resistant to medications used to treat this condition, and toxic megacolon may occur secondary to the severity of infection encountered prior to institution of therapy. You need to keep in close touch with your treating doctor.

Is there any way to prevent achne after steroid treatment?

Eat a healthy diet.

Anabolic_steroids
Choose whole grain foods, fruits, vegetables, and high protein foods like turkey and fish. Avoid processed, low nutrient, and high calorie foods that have high glycemic loads; like French fries, white bread, soda pop. For more info, check this site: http://www.superfoodsrx.com/nutrition/nutritional-research/acne-and-nutrition.html. Dairy foods clearly increase acne & also gluten for some people.

I have Hepatitis C, is there a treatment to help prevent my child from contracting it?

Not specificly

Open-uri20121114-26561-2fapxy
Roughly 5% of infants born to Hep C mothers will acquire the infection. The mothers IgG antibody to Hep C that would indicate prior infection will persist up to 18 months in baby so a + test would not be specific for baby prior to 18 mo. There is a specific test for Hep C RNA that can be preformed at 1-2 mo. that would be specific for the baby.see Red Book,28ed 2009.p358-360.
