Would arginine alpha-ketoglutarate effect my depression medication?

Would arginine alpha-ketoglutarate effect my depression medication?

Doubtful: No. There is a tantalizing reference in the literature that arginine depletion can improve depression: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/21515310. However, the converse, to my knowledge, is not established, namely, that arginine can adversely effect depression. There should theoretically be no interaction between arginine and antidepressants, per se. Arginine is a natural substance. ...Read more

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. Can this relate to high GGT in liver, breathing heart and lung issues, can it affect medications like ACE inhibitors

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. Can this relate to high GGT in liver, breathing heart and lung issues, can it affect medications like ACE inhibitors

ACE: Is produced in the kidneys and lungs. A-1at deficiency affect the lungs and the liver to cause emphysema and cirrhosis. Due to lung problem, the heart can suffer and symptoms could include tachycardia and heart failure due to the emphysema. It also causes chronic cough. From this you can surmise that yes, GGT can be elevated and ace can decrease but kidney can produce enough. ...Read more

Can you tell me the effects of alpha one antitrypsin deficiency and is it safe for people with it to take drugs?

Can you tell me the effects of alpha one antitrypsin deficiency and is it safe for people with it to take drugs?

Emphysema: Individuals with anti Alpha 1 deficiency are more prone to the environmental oxidative factors such as polution, smoking, etc therefore they get emphysema eventually especially if they smoke. Logically these individuals could get lung/liver damage if take medications which are inceasing oxidative status.

Alpha 1 antityricain what is that? What are systomns

Antitrypsin: Alpha-1 antitrypsin is a normal blood protein that keeps some of the products of your neutrophils from harming your tissues more than they need to. If you're seriously deficient, you'll develop emphysema in midlife, and at some time in your life may develop serious liver function problems. One serious pitfall is assaying the levels during concurrent illness; they may be misleading. Good luck. ...Read more

Does thalassemia alpha shorten life?

Does thalassemia alpha shorten life?

Depends: There are four grades of severity of alpha thalassemia. Lack of one or two genes would not affect the life span. Lack of three genes may alter health and life span. Lack of all four genes is generally not compatible with life.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Can you please explain the significance of monoclonal alpha chain without accompanying light chain?

Can you please explain the significance of monoclonal alpha chain without accompanying light chain?

Abnormal globulin: The gammaglobulins, which are proteins that defend our body from different diseases are formed of two chains the light and the heavy chain. In certain diseases, such as multiple myeloma, one cell starts to produce one type of (or part of) gammaglobulin. This proteins are all the same (therefore "monoclonal") and usually non-functioning. It can accumulate in tissues producing more damage. ...Read more

Why is it that alpha and beta -thalassemias result in more clinically severe diseases than other types of thalassemia?

Used for blood cells: Alpha globulin (made by the Alpha genes) and beta globulin (made by the beta genes) are the 2 globulin molecules needed to make normal adult hemoglobin (the red stuff in normal red blood cells). Mutations that prevent Alpha and beta globulin production will cause severe symptoms, but other mutations may not be as noticeable if the proteins the other genes make are not as crucial to life. ...Read more

As to why they may help, I think any answer would be speculative at best (in general, they act to relax the smooth muscle of the prostate and bladder neck), but most doctors will prescribe them for 4-6 weeks only in this situation. ...Read more
