Molecular targeting: These agents are designed to selectively knock out key pathways your tumor may use to grow. Presumably you already had your tumor tested for these different mutations. Ask the doctor offering these options to explain their rationale. These are investigational studies and many of the treatment costs may be covered-ask. ...Read more

Would like to know if tyrosine would be a good replacement for add medication?

Would like to know if tyrosine would be a good replacement for add medication?

Not likely: Tyrosine is an Amino Acid that can be made into dopamine, but would not be the same as taking pharmaceutical stimulants in adhd. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/19344299 and http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/21766545. ...Read more

Will "5-HTP" and "L-Tyrosine" help and improve my medication "vyvanse"? Thank You

Will "5-HTP" and "L-Tyrosine" help and improve my medication "vyvanse"? Thank You

Interesting question: There is no evidence that it would hurt. J Psychiatry Neurosci suggests: L-Tyrosine does not seem to enhance the release of catecholamines when neurons are firing at their basal rates, but it does when firing rates are increased by stress. The main effects of L-tyrosine that have been reported are acute effects in preventing a decline in cognitive function in response to physical stress. ...Read more

If taking tyrosine helps generate melatonin and darken hair, what medication has the opposite effect?

If taking tyrosine helps generate melatonin and darken hair, what medication has the opposite effect?

Wrong premise: Tyrosine is a Dopamine precursor and it does not go to melatonin in the body.

In balanced dosing with tryptophan and 5 hydroxy tryptophan, the serotonin goes to melatonin.

Unbalanced it can make a patient sicker. ...Read more

Can the body store the extra amount of the tyrosine?

No: Tyrosine is not stored. The body has a way of making it directly, so it is not an "essential amino acid, " meaning one that you have to get from food. It gets caught up in a number of different systems in the brain and the rest of the body, and what doesn't get used gets metabolized and excreted. ...Read more

How long will it take to effects of l-tyrosine?

How long will it take to effects of l-tyrosine?

Unknown: Assuming it has any effect on adhd, which is not established, it could take weeks or months to have any notable effect, since you are trying to build up brain supplies in the right areas high enough to overcome a presumed deficit in Dopamine or norepinephrine. My professional opinion is that it is highly unlikely one would get a marked effect, ever. ...Read more

How long does it take for creatin kinase levels to go down?

How long does it take for creatin kinase levels to go down?

Depends on cause: CPK levels are elevated due to injury to the muscles, it gets elevated with myocardial injury during heart attack and injury to the sleletal muscles as well. So it depends how much damage to the muscles is and the cause of the damage and responce to treatment of the underlying condition
it can take from few days to several days. ...Read more

What does a creatine kinase level of 322 indicate?

What does a creatine kinase level of 322 indicate?

Muscle injury: Ck level of 322 is elevated but not too high. Elevated levels of ck indicate muscle injury, however strenous physical activity will raise ck levels, especially if activity is done prior to blood draw. Some medications and alcohol can casue ck elevation. ...Read more

Muscle injury: Creatinine kinase is released from injured or dead muscle cells, be those skeletal, cardiac of smooth muscle cells. Renal failure is also associtated with modestly elevated levels. ...Read more

Can l tyrosine cause prolactin levels to increase?

Can l tyrosine cause prolactin levels to increase?

Should not: If it has any effect at all, tyrosine should decrease prolactin. It is the immediate precursor for dopamine, which is released from the hypothalamus onto the pituitary and, among other things, affects prolacting release; however, the effect of increased Dopamine would be to decrease prolactin. Drugs that block Dopamine receptors (antipsychotics) can cause marked increases in prolactin levels. ...Read more

My creatine kinase level is 465 what does that indicate?

My creatine kinase level is 465 what does that indicate?

CPK: Hi, Ck or CPK is found in striated muscle, heart tissue, and brain, damage to either can increase the level in blood, also thyroid imbalance could increase CK due to muscle damage, CK clearance from body decreases in kidney disease.
Your level is mildly elevated which could be 2/2 exercise, trauma to muscle, accident. ...Read more

What does it mena to have an elevated total creatine kinase?

What does it mena to have an elevated total creatine kinase?

CPK: Ck is a polycomponent muscle enzyme. The ck mb is the muscle-brain part of ck total. That is why the lower value for mb. The lab normals would tell whether these are elevated or not. Elevations are usually from muscle damage and the mb is found in heart. ...Read more

My creatine kinase levels were at 56, is this a good reading, what does this mean?

Not much: You are probably not having a heart attack, some illness that seriously damages your muscles, and are also probably not in heavy athletic training or doing really hard manual work. We have a saying in pathology, "look at the person, not the numbers." hope all else is okay, thanks for writing. ...Read more

What could increased creatine kinase and aldolase levels indicate?

What could increased creatine kinase and aldolase levels indicate?

Likely muscle injury: Creatine kinase and aldolase would both be elevated after a muscle injury.
Ck can also be elevated in kidney failure.
Adolase can be sub-classified into a, b and c which helps differentiate from which tissue the high levels came. ...Read more

Does l-tyrosine help with hypothyroidism?

Yes, if deficient: Our bodies produce thyroid hormone by combining tyrosine with iodine. Thus, if one is deficient in tyrosine it might cause hypothyroidism. Our body synthesizes tyrosine from phenylalanine, so that deficiency (which is not unusual) can also cause hypothyroidism. If low in tyrosine then supplementing should help: http://ezinearticles.
