Q. 1 of 2. Renogran, left kidney. Parenchymal tracer uptake is reduced with negligible wash out. What does it mean?

If I understand the: Question correctly, the left kidney renogram shows decreased uptake of tracer, which means decreased kidney function. The negligible wash out means little urine production, or possibly a blockage of the upper ureter. Please discuss with your doctor, as this appearance needs to be correlated with your medical condition and the reason your doctor ordered the test. ...Read more

I played basketball with a boxer and my left testicle which was shaking alot is paining now, it has reduced alot but still pains, please help!

Torsion: Severe testicle pain following vigorous activity requires urgent exam by doc to exclude testicular torsion - a condition in which the testicle gets twisted on its own blood vessels. Often produces elevation of affected testicle and partial relief of pain with elevation. The testicle is usually laying sideways in the scrotum rather than "standing up." Failure to seek treatment causes infertility. ...Read more

My echocardiogram show moderately reduced left ventricular systolic function with and estimated ejection fraction approximately 30-35 Explain please?

General definitions: Left ventricular systolic function is a measure of how well the lower left pumping section of the heart squeezes to send blood to the body. Ejection fraction (EF) is the % of blood that is pumped out with each heartbeat. A normal EF at rest usually ranges between 55& 70%. If the heart muscle has been damaged the ejection fraction may be lower. You should discuss results further with your doctor. ...Read more

I suddenly saw bright light and shapes similar to broken glass in my left eye. It reduced in ~1-2 min. This happened once bfore. What could be reason?

Seeing reflection of: Blood vessels in the retina. Those lines are a reverse image (shadows) of what is in your eyeball, and you are seeing it at some jagged edges, when in reality, it's a vascular tree of your blood vessels in your eye, and quite normal. A bright light can be ocular migraine or can be phosphenes when you touch your eye and see a temporary light internally. This is benign in any case. ...Read more

Got dysautonomia starting florinef (fludrocortisone), (fludrocortisone) BP 120/60. I read florinef (fludrocortisone) can cause heart left ventricular diastolic reduced efficiency?

Got dysautonomia starting florinef (fludrocortisone), (fludrocortisone) BP 120/60. I read florinef (fludrocortisone) can cause heart left ventricular diastolic reduced efficiency?

Dysautonomia: There is no cure for dysautonomia. In many cases treatment of primary dysautonomia is symptomatic and supportive. Measures to combat orthostatic hypotension include elevation of the head of the bed, frequent small meals, a high-salt diet, and drugs such as fludrocortisone, midodrine, and ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). Florinef could worsen heart failure but doesn't cause heart failure. ...Read more

Reduced vision in left eye from floater. What to do?

Reduced vision in left eye from floater. What to do?

Floater: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous (jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment or other problems with the eye. ...Read more

See your doctor: Ocular and neurological migraines can mimic all manner of problems, including those normally caused by strokes.

Please make arrangements to see those doctors soon. ...Read more
