What is the average life expectancy for a type 1 diabetic (has had diabetes for 35 + yrs) with end stage renal disease, and is on dialysis?

Depends: Any answer that includes a definite number would be questionable from my point of view; as it would probably not consider the subpopulations' future attitude and compliance, not to mention current overall health status/genetic of this "cohort". Meaning, life expectancy at this point may vary wildly for many reasons. It would be more useful to just optimize treatment in a multidisciplinary fashion. ...Read more

2 kids with nonimmune hydrops, 1 f 2 1/2 yrs, 1 m 3 months?

Non-immune hydrops can be from heart or lung problems, severe anemia (alpha-thalassemia or infections), genetic syndromes or problems in fetal development. I'd seek evaluations of both kids by a geneticist to look for a cause ; by your state's early intervention program to assess their development. ...Read more

Hematologist needed!: If you are a non-smoker, the hct of 62.5% strongly indicates a "myeloproliferative" disorder of which polycythemia vera is a variant and can give bone pain, especially if there is a high viscosity that limits blood flow and tissue oxygen delivery.

What is the average weight of a 6' 1" american male?

Why do you ask?: "average" isn't necessarily good. Most american men have a paunch & would be better without. Your best weight is what looks and feels right for you and lets you participate in sports successfully. A man does not need any body fat.
