I am taking bethanechol chloride for a weakened bladder. Does this drug have any actual curative effect?

I am taking bethanechol chloride for a weakened bladder. Does this drug have any actual curative effect?

No...: The popularity of using Bethanechol chloride for "weakened" bladder has undergone significant change; its use was popular back in 1970s-1990s, and has been tapering over the past two decades. It theoretically increases contractibility of bladder muscle, ; its intended effectiveness fell short of expectation. So, some urologists would not bother to use it at all nowadays. It has no curative effect. ...Read more

Is magnesium chloride the same as magneeium citrate?

Pretty similar: But not precisely the same. Elemental magnesium has a positive charge to it (technically a +2 charge) so the only way to get it into a pill form that you can take orally is to mix it with something that is negatively charged so that the resulting compound is neutral. Chloride and citrate both accomplish this. ...Read more

Does using aluminium chloride hexahydrate can cause cancer? Thank You

No: It takes five seconds to make up a lie. You can spend a year showing why it's not true, and if you do, you're still going to be portrayed as the bad guy. Real carcinogens mutate genes or are obvious tissue-damaging agents -- anything can do stuff in a junk-science experiment, and people pretending to be your friends report this to rip you off. Stop worrying. ...Read more

I have neprhocalcinosis, today I had a renal function test done and my BUN was 7 & chloride 112, other levels normal. What could this mean?

Labs: Your BUN is lower and maybe a reflection of your protein intake but doesn't mean disease. BUN levels are governed by many reasons including kidney function protein intake liver issues. Assuming you have no issue low BUN is more diet. Your chloride is high normal and should be repeated. These labs have to be looked in totality and don't mean disease. Best of luck ...Read more

Could you explain what is potassium chloride and is it lethal?

Potassium is essential to the function of muscle and nerves via a biologic system of electrical potentials.

Chloride level was 101 in may but now is 93. Why the dip?

Serum chloride: Serum chloride concentrations change for only a few reasons - 1. Can dip if serum sodium dips also: will follow sodium. 2. Can dip if serum bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) rises: reciprocal change. 3. Chloride thus is a secondary anion -- it follows another ionic change as above. Discerning the primary cause is essential: sodium depletion, water retention (1.). Bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) retention, chloride loss (2.) Doc knows ...Read more
