Plasma Protein Fraction Medication
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

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.

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.

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.?
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

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
