How is the decision made between which type of valve a surgeon replaces i.E tissue versus mechanical
Depends: The decision is made when taking into account the age of the patient and co-morbidities. Typcially, patients over the age of 65 are best served with a tissue valve, whereas younger patients would do better with a mechanical. The reason is that this minimizes the chance that the patient will have to have a re-do procedure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sarcoidosis: Sarcoidosis is not considered a cancer. It is a disease of unknown etiology. It can be described as a non-casesating granulomatous disease. It is difficult to diagnose. It was thought that having sarcoid increased a patient's chance of cancer, esp. Lymphoma, but several recent articles dispute this claim. The absolute diagnosis is made by biopsy of a nodule, possibly in the lung region. Etc.... ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is type 2 diabetes a lesser evil? Can type 2 become type 1 or vice versa? Can folks with type 1 be cured like folks with type 2 no longer need meds?
Diabetes 1 vs 2: Type 1 diabetes refers to the type where one totally stops making Insulin (e.g. Due to pancreas antibodies) and therefore Insulin is generally the only treatment possible . Type 1 can affect all ages including children/adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is more prevelant due to the increase in obesity rates. Eventually most type 2 diabetics need Insulin but weight loss can reverse it. Oral meds help. ...Read more

Could there be a difference in dietary requirements between type 1 and type 2 diabetes sufferers?
Does a full blood count detect diabetes type 2 or diabetes type 1? Is type 2 an autoimmune disease?
No: But a fasting blood glucose or Hgb a1c test would show diabetes. It does not distinguish between the two types of diabetes however. Type 1 is often considered an autoimmune disorder but type 2 more a lifestyle issue- too much fat not enough exercise. Type 1 usually requires insulin and type 2 only on occasions (may reverse to normal with weight loss). ...Read more
Probably none: Concussion without structural injury does not require surgery. Most of the structural injuries (such as blood clots) are fatal if not operated on immediately, so you don't seem to have that type of injury. Unfortunately, there is no way to "cure" a concussion, but it needs to be "managed" carefully while the body heals. The best place for this is a multidisciplinary concussion clinic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Happily, most hernia operations are low-risk, out-patient procedures. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What is the best type of exercise and diet for someone with a genetic metabolic myopathy such as CPT II deficiency?
Different approach: Not so easy with a metabolic muscle disease. Mostly would suggest very low exertion activities, and at first sign of cramping, rest immediately. Swimming might not be a bad choice but would do with companion in shallow water. Would definitely work with a physical therapist to fine tune all of this. ...Read more
