Can I be an organ donor now that I have lam disease?

Lam fat and l want to be thin what can l do? Tell me doctor

Lam fat and l want to be thin what can l do? Tell me doctor

Diet, exercise, meds: The first step is to change the structure of your eating. Rather than 3 large meals, you should be eating multiple small meals. In fact, you should really eat a small amount every 2 hours. Grazing like the animals. Because every time you eat, it spikes your metabolism. Adding that framework will put you on the fast track to weight loss. Add regular walking and frequent water too. ...Read more

Here's...: Physical growth is pre-determined by genetic factors and stops soon after marching into adulthood; for men, it's roughly around at 18. So, don't waste money, but accept, adopt, and adapt what life might have brought to you, and make the best use of it. Throw unrealistic expectation out of the window of life. ...Read more

Frustrated. After 4 wks of lexap I had 4 down days so he said add lamictal. Then said lex can take up to 12 wks. I want to hold off on lam. Thoughts?

Great expectations: I don't know your detailed history, but lamictal suggests "he" (God?) thinks you have an element of bipolar? Everyone is different. I think your expectations of lexap are too high. These drugs won't make you happy as a clam every minute of every day. You need to discuss with "him" what you can realistically expect from your antidepressants. They're not perfect drugs. ...Read more

I am a 63 y.O. Female experiencing significant, unintended wt loss. Could cause be dynamic hyperinflation from lung disease (lam)?

Time for workup: I wouldn't attribute significant passive weight loss to anything simple or benign. I would get in for a workup with your physician within the next 10 days & see if there is something fixable going on. ...Read more

On Lam 100 mg - Dr suspect mood issue. Off my anti dep. Dr wants to go to 200 b/c he says it's the therap dose but I feel stable. Reason for 200 mg?

On Lam 100 mg - Dr suspect mood issue. Off my anti dep. Dr wants to go to 200 b/c he says it's the therap dose but I feel stable. Reason for 200 mg?

Hmm...: You do have a good question, as if you feel stable and are controlled on the current dose, you may not need to be increased. The dr. However may know others that feel you mod is not quite stable, even though you feel it is, or through an examination and therapy sessions may feel you are still able to improve further, thus the reason for increasing. Ask the Dr. And let them know your concerns. ...Read more

I have problems with erection sometimes my diabetes are 132 fasting and 150 random lam using aerolin inhaler for asthma for the last 10 years?

Diabetes and ED: I am wondering about the control of your diabetes. Have you talked to your doctor about this? It is certainly still possible to treat your erectile dysfunction in most cases. It does work against you. You should have your testosterone and estrogen levels checked. You should talk to your doctor about whether you would be a good candidate for Cialis, Levitra, (vardenafil) or Viagra, too. ...Read more

L am on steroid ihave gain 12kg in 3months what can I do to control on it now my body weight is121kg. Lam having sarcodasisin lungs &nurasarcodosis

Alternative drug?: May use a "steroid sparing drug" to decrease the need of steroid, in sarcoidosis of the nervous system Hydroxychloroquine (plaquenil) works best. Steroids make you gain mostly by increasing appetite and making you lazy and slugish, both can be helped, to a certain extent, by will power and vanity! ...Read more

Had a laminectomy/discectomy more back pain after then fusion to fix it at l3, 4 now herniation at L5 should my dr just do a fusion now or a lam/discec?

Had a laminectomy/discectomy more back pain after then fusion to fix it at l3, 4 now herniation at L5 should my dr just do a fusion now or a lam/discec?

Depend on findings: I do not recommend prophylactic spinal arthrodesis. If you have a disc herniation at the l5-s1 level with associated radiculopathy associated with either the L5 or s1 nerve root that does not respond conservative care, then a decompressive laminotomy & dissecting may be indicated. If there is associated spinal instability with associated dominating lower back pain, an arthrodesis may be indicated. ...Read more

I made an echocardiographic, the conclusion is. Sclerotic aortic valve, ef ls32%, mild mitral regurgitation&dilated l.A. Am I in ddinger. Lam 47 y?

This is concerning: Of the findings you reported, I am most concerned at this time about your ef of 32%. This needs to be further evaluated as to the cause. Low ejection fractions tend to cause symptoms of heart failure as well as markedly increase your risk of sudden death.
Aortic sclerosis, mild mitral regurgitation and dilated left atrium are findings that need to be monitored; they may progress in the future. ...Read more

LAM: Spontaneous pneumothoraces are not uncommon in patients with lam. Unfortunately, it is a recurrent problem. The time to heal will depend on the severity or the size of the pneumothorax which will determine whether a chest tube is needed or not. ...Read more

Serum free light chain test shows normal kappa (8.7mg/dl), low lambda (3.80), high kap/lam ratio (2.31). Serum $ urine electrophoresis show no monoclonal protein, nor does serum immunofixation. Likely MGUS, myeloma, or admyloidosis? CBC/met panel ok.

False positive rate: There is 30% or so false positive rate of kappa/lambda ratio in people without MGUS, myeloma or other disorders.
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. 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.
