Acetaminophen is 20-50% plasma protein bound & the absorption process occurs by passive transport. What does that mean to the average A. frequent user?

Acetaminophen is 20-50% plasma protein bound & the absorption process occurs by passive transport. What does that mean to the average A. frequent user?

Nothing: It means you need to comply with the limits that the manufacturer recommends. How it gets into you and how it rides around inside of you has nothing to do with how it can ruin your liver overnight if you swallow a fistful. 3000 mg/day is safe; obviously you're going to take it in divided doses. ...Read more

Who would need a urine catecholamine fractionation?

Who would need a urine catecholamine fractionation?

Possible tumor: Urine catecholamines are separated into dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, vma, and dopa, among others. Each of these metabolites are differently expressed by certain tumors, often in the adrenal gland, or sometimes in other sites. This gives a guide to where to test further, or what else may be giving rise to the symptoms (often high blood pressure, heart beat abnormalities, etc). ...Read more

Creatinine level is 3.9, leukocytes 3-5, erthrocytes 10-12 protein ++ in urine. Could it be my medications?

High creatinine: You should see a nephrologist to get answer to your question. Some medicines, of the advil (ibuprofen) class, can cause acute renal failure, which reverses once you stop taking them. Due to the presence of protein and blood in your urine, you need a 24 hour urine collection for creatinine clearance and protein. You also need some blood work to see if you have diseases that can cause proteinuria, diabetes? ...Read more

What are your thoughts on Juicing and using protein powder or flaxseed for weight loss? Will there be a problems with medications or conditions?

What are your thoughts on Juicing and using protein powder or flaxseed for weight loss? Will there be a problems with medications or conditions?

Juicing: Fresh organic juicing (with more vegetables than fruits) can be an excellent approach to weight loss. It can be expensive for purchase the vegetables & fruits and time consuming for preparation. I recommend that you read up on it first or consider working with a naturopathic doctor or a nutritionist who is experienced in this area. Rice protein is usually easy on the GI tract.

Constant low blood protein levels (5.8). I am an active 57 yr male with high protein diet- donates plasma twice a week. Now levels too low to donate?

Constant low blood protein levels (5.8). I am an active 57 yr male with high protein diet- donates plasma twice a week. Now levels too low to donate?

Albumen dominant &: Typically the reason the total protein is low. Healthy albumen concentrations typically 4.0 & up, 1/2 in blood only ~14 hrs. If low, this reflects liver problems, e.g. steatosis from too many carbs (converted to fat in liver) or any of a variety of other possibilities. Study: https://en. Wikipedia.

How do I remove protein out of my urine without medication? How do I avoid it happening again?

MULTIPLE CAUSES: The only way to remove protein from your urine is to discover the cause and improve or eliminate it. Certain things--fever, heat/cold exposure, strenuous exercise, emotional stress--can cause temporary rises in urine protein. But most of the causes--diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension and heart disease, cancers, certain drugs, etc, are often permanent. No meds would help. ...Read more

Does water intake lower protein in blood? Trying to donate plasma and I was 9.3. Thanks

Does water intake lower protein in blood? Trying to donate plasma and I was 9.3. Thanks

Yes, MinimallyButNot: Without water overload, edema & associated problems. While usual lab data is concentration of something within water (most commonly water outside cells; easier & less $), as water based creatures, controlling the amount of water within our body is crucial, too little or too much results in problems & death. Thus the bigger issue is the substance in the water & what controls the concentration. ...Read more

Labs show a bun of 2, but total protein plasma is high at 8.4. Albumin is 3.8. Feeds are formula and past low bun has been lack of protein.?

Labs show a bun of 2, but total protein plasma is high at 8.4. Albumin is 3.8. Feeds are formula and past low bun has been lack of protein.?

Probably ok: Everything has to be taken in context. There are no simple answers. BUN is a waste product of protein metabolism and low level is not necessarily bad. The Albumin level is good and reflects enough protein nutrition. In this case total protein may be high because of high globulins which again may be ok in a 9 yr old. Normal weight and growth is more reliable, + indicative health than lab test. ...Read more

I need some medication to get some proteins cause I'm feeling very week need some strength to go to gym. Suggest me some pills and too scared to do an?

No protein.: You need to find out why you are weak. Supplements are basically worthless, & you will do better, & your work-out will profit you more, if you eat real food, properly prepared. Increased amounts of protein are unnecessary and do grant you more strength, only continued weight lifting improves strength. See Scwarzenegger's book "Weight Training for Athletes." Great book by a champion bodybuilder! ...Read more

Apart from treatment & medication, does high protein intake enhance the recovery process of patients suffering from koch's spine & psoas abscess?

I think it dose: A high-protein diet is recommended by many medical professionals for healing wounds or burns, because protein helps repair the body's organs and tissues. Lack of protein may decrease a person's immune system and his ability to heal from sickness and injuries. Eating a diet rich in protein from natural sources, and possibly from supplementation, may speed healing and decrease recovery time. ...Read more

I'm 45 with CKD stage 4.On medication for hbp. My bro. Is diabetic, has hbp, high uric acid with blood and protein in urine but kidney function is ok.?

Less than 130/80.: Not sure what the question is, but your brother should watch his BP carefully. Goal is 130/80 or lower. He should be on an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor such as lisinopril. It looks like you should be too. Don't worry too much about uric acid if he does not have gout. ...Read more
