Procollagen Type I Intact
How good, or not, is consuming liquid collagen after an orthopedic surgery - freiberg disease.Thank you.
Not even a theory: It's rubbish, intended to sell books without any scientific basis. Eat sensibly, avoid tobacco and other addictions, and exercise. If you get focused on there being some other key to health, or read a lot of "diagnose yourself" websites, they'll get your money and time and you'll never feel well again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Betting you don't: If you had vascular / type iv, you'd know. That you are seriously sick would be obvious by age 22. And you say you've been typed as 3. This is more than ten times more common than type iv; the joint troubles are rough enough but you would already have the abnormal look and some of the experiences of a type IV if this was your true type. ...Read more
How does ether danlos type 3 cause pots? Im scared of vadcular type but my veins are not highly visable, no facial signs, no bruising etc.
Unknown: Twenties male inquires how ehlers-danlos (eds) disorder causes paroxysmal orthostatic tachycardia (pots). I do not think there is official explanation. Pots is surely mediated by autonomic nervous system. My own theory is joint hypermobility of eds stimulates autonomic nerves within brachial & pelvic plexi; causing arterial muscle relaxation, blood pooling, vascular collapse & tachycardia. ...Read more

What is a scar under the skin called? How does scar tissue form if there was never an open wound?
Scar fibrosis: Even without an entry wound, an injury to the soft tissues (like a severe bruise) or bleeding within the fat or muscle can cause damage leading to permanent scarring. This scarring is firm and swollen at first, and can restrict movement. You could also have had injury to nerves (sensory or motor) that could lead to temporary or permanent damage to these functions. Time softens things significantly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tested positive for herpes, type 1- >8.0 ai herpes type 2- 3.7 ai does this mean by the level type 2 was recent? I heard over 5 means u had it longer
Reading Herpes Tests: I would caution you against these assumptions. These tests should be read and positive (one has been exposed and infected) or negative (one does not have evidence of exposure and infection). Trying to guess when one was exposed will never be correct from these numbers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I have osteogenesis imperfecta type 1 does that mean if I have a baby and it is born with oi also will it have type 1 like me?
About 50% chance: Most cases of oi are thought to be transmitted via an autosomal dominant mode of transmission. That means if one parent has it, 50% of the kids will have it. To better understand this concept, look up "mendelian genetic transmission" in google. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not really: With medications, and diet modications, and close follow up your diabetes can be controlled very well. There are some surgeries that you may be a candidate for if you are also overweight. These surgeries have been shown to be better at controlling diabetes, and often can make your diabetes go into remission where your sugars are controlled without medications. But it isn't really "cured". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I can I regrow corpora cavernosa? I had implant surgery with the removal of implant devise. Will my body regrow this tissue with stimulated jelqing?
Extremely unlikely;: one of the many complications of surgery too many don't consider. Starting from a single fertilized cell in utero, our body constantly both tears itself down & rebuilds; all rebuilding being based on pre-existing cell, tissue, organ structure, etc. via mechanisms which remain only very partially understood. Once structure changes, by any basis, this changes the rebuilding & resulting structure(s). ...Read more

Does semen have health benefits if swallowed i was wondering if semen has health benefits like extra protein, good for skin, helps generate any type of virus fighting cells or anything like that.
What : What an interesting question to start my day with. What does semen contain? White blood cells, epithelial cells and spermatozoa as well as water, fats, steroids, carbohydrates (sugars) and protein. There is usually about 2 to 6 ml of semen per ejaculation. Is it good for you or not? Well, i guess that depends on who you are talking to. There are a number of cultures and religions that consider sperm to be sacred - however, I am not aware of religious rituals involving semen ingestion. There is a study that suggests possible health benefits from ingesting semen. It proported a reduced risk of breast cancer if a woman engages in fellatio at least three times a week. Two other benefits from semen that have been suggested (but do not involve ingestion per se) include an antidepressant effect on women and possible reduction of pre-eclampsia.I can not tell you how how scientific the methods were for any of these studies. On the flip side (and there is a lot of evidence to support this) semen can contain viruses and bacteria. Hiv can be transmitted through oral sex. Herpes and other sexually transmitted diseases can also be contained in semen. If there is significant gum disease in the person who ingests the ejaculate, that would provide more portals for infection. It is reported that about 5% of women are allergic to ejaculate. I am not aware that injesting semen strengthens your immune system, gives you radiant skin or improves the quality of your diet. ...Read more
Cispr can edit our geno dna. Does this mean they could cure ehlers danlos syndrome by editing the faulty collagen to normal? How amazing?
Gene therapy: Crispr (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) is an an immune strategy that bacteria use to detect and chop up foreign dna. By introducing the enzymes responsible for this process into human cells, genetic engineering can be performed. Treating a disease using this technology will be quite challenging, but I have no doubt this will eventually make it into clinical trials. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have been separated and under treatment of shared psychotic disorder and religious type delusion. Would mindfulness cbt meditation/religious origin make separation less painful?
Worth a try: Mindfulness cbt meditation is an effective approach for coping with stressful situations & is likely to be of some help. For your ptsd you might try emotional freedom technique (see http://www.Eftuniverse.Com/ & https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=6i33v2ecvly ). Neither of these are substitutes for other medical treatment & counseling but may be very useful adjuncts. Blessings to you & your spouse. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I scratched tissue roughly from bad yeast infection nurse decided to do a HSV CULTURE w/ Reflex Typing just incase what does reflex typying mean?
Type of Herpes Test: Hi Ryan - Sometimes a yeast infection and a Herpes or HSV infection can cause similar symptoms of irritation in the genital area. The nurse is being cautious and helping make sure that Herpes is not the cause of the irritation. There are two types of HSV, HSV 1 and HSV 2. A reflex test asks the laboratory to determine which type of HSV it is only if EITHER type of HSV is detected to begin with. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A lump and swelling at the base of my thumb and wrist with an elevated vein which occurred while typing today?
I don't have a question at the moment, but the program won't continue without me typing something?
Welcome: Welcome to HealthtapGet a more detailed answer ›
Is there a condition that causes people to mix letters up when typing, e.g. "how" as "hwo" or "ends" as "neds"? This has been happening ALOT!
Neutral position.: Frequent typing might increase the risk to suffer from various pain symptoms in the wrists and fingers since you put stress on nerves passing between the lower arm and hand. The best position to minimize pain is to support the base of the hand on a soft pad and have the wrists bent slightly upwards. Frequent rests are important. ...Read more
