Pcos Treated With Medical Marijuana
Medical marijuana for type 1 diabetes? I live in oregon and have type 1 diabetes. I was just curious, I had heard that some studies had been done that showed type 1 diabetics who were insulin dependent could be treated with marijuana. Is this true and I
All: All persons with type 1 diabetes require Insulin for survival and control of blood glucose. We do not use the term "insulin dependent" any more. There is no evidence that marijuana would eliminate the need for insulin. In fact, you might expect an increased need since it does tend to increase appetite in most people. So I would not sign for your card. Sorry. But on the other hand there is substantial evidence and scientific/medical support for the conclusion that the drug war has failed miserably and that marijuana ought to be legalized for all. See the links below. ...Read more

Ultrasound showing large ovaries ...Read more
Am I eligible for a medical marijuana card in colorado? I have insomnia but have never actually been "treated" for it. I have taken a few OTC pills which have antihistamines in them which I already have to take for allergies. I just wake up with a "hungov
Why bother?: Colorado has legalized possession of marijuana in small amounts for recreational purposes, and you do not need a "medical marijuana card." pot is not particularly great for insomnia anyway. Insomnia is not a diagnosis - it is a symptom of something else. If you are having major problems sleeping, your doctor can look into the reasons (too much caffeine, depression, anxiety) and help treat those. ...Read more

No: Erythema multiforme is an allergic reaction. Em minor is similar to a very bad case of hives. Em major is severe and needs treatment in a hospital.

Can someone gets a prescription for boost (nutrition drink) and is medical Marijuana prescribed for chronic pancreatitis?
Chronic pancreatitis: If it's medically indicated a prescription can be written for nutritional supplemental drinks. Not all insurances will cover as it is available "OTC". As far as the chronic pancreatitis - the only literature I am aware of have found marijuana as a cause for recurrent pancreatitis so I highly doubt it's being used as a treatment (unless as marinol for appetite issues). ...Read more

Is medical marijuana ever prescribed to treat symptoms of fibromyalgia? Scared to ask my doc about this as other treatments don't help. Weed does.
Yes: Our bodies naturally make pain relievers called endorphins, but they also make other substances that can trigger pain relief in the so-called endocannabinoid system. This system seems to play a key role in many processes in the body, including modulating how we feel pain. Marijuana contains cannabinoids very similar to those that occur in the body naturally. ...Read more

Is it OK to take me medical marijuana which is high in CBD 14.6 very low in THC.8 with clarithromycin 2 x 500mg a day? Will it affect my liver or slow
Despite being legal, it is not okay to take marijuana. It is a psychoactive drug that will mess with your brain.
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.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Could medical marijuana help? I have migraines on an almost daily basis to due to suffering numerous concussions throughout my life. I've tried prescriptions that didn't work. Do you think medical marijuana could be a good solution to my issue? Thanks for
Preventive meds: The best treatment for migraine is 1)finding out if there are foods or other environmental factors causing them and avoiding those things and 2) medications that prevent (not treat) migraine like verapamil, beta blockers or low-dose tricyclic antidepressants. Best treatment is with triptans. Some of my patients have gotten benefit from 'medical' mj, but most have not. Plus- unknown purity&smoked. ...Read more

Mixed bag: I agree with dr. Baker, but see in my chronic illness counseling practice lots of pot use, because some GI docs are routinely recommending it to young patients. This is a pain reliever right now; not a cure. Heavy pot use stops people from working on other issues (family, work) that may be fueling the inflammation, not good. Long term use also presupposes that chronic pain (inflammation) is ok. ...Read more
