What Does Cd Stand For
Might look similar: Someone who "hoards" things can never throw them away. You find piles of newspapers and magazines that might be from years ago, stacked up so that there's hardly room to move in the place. Every surface is covered with items. It can be a type of obsessive anxiety disorder. "cd" is a variant of normal, problematic at times -- but they do discard things no longer being used, without huge anxiety. ...Read more
Pharmacokinetics: CArdizem CD basically is long acting. Typically this form is to be taken once/day as it is supposed to give you coverage for 24 hours. The other one, by "we" I think you mean short-acting Cardizem (typically comes in 30 mg and 60 mg tablets), is short-acting, and faster acting, but out of systems usually within 6 hrs, so in some cases can be give three or 4 times/day. Active ingredient same. ...Read more
Diltiazem is available in many different forms and has several brand and generic names. The “CD” following diltiazem stands for Controlled Delivery, which has an extended duration of action. For example, Diltiazem CD only needs to be taken once a day, while other formulations may need to be taken twice daily.
Diltiazem can be used to treat high blood pressure and abnormal heart rates and rhythms ...Read more

Can a follicle continue to grow even on cd 24 while on injection. Is 12mm now and is cd15. What's my chance.
It depends: In general, a follicle that doesn't release before day 18 is considered lower quality. However I have seen people get pregnant late in their cycles, with a late ovulation, and it turned out fine. There's no way to give you a percent chance. If you are doing fertility medications, I would trust your doctor's opinion about whether or not to continue injections if it isn't working as expected. ...Read more

Why does my CD 57 show I'm very sick but the doctors can't tell me why? I feel like I'm slowly dying what should I ask them to do or check?
CD 57: The CD 57 assay is a test that is not reliable enough to make any diagnoses or base any decisions on. The CDC says it is a test "whose accuracy and clinical usefulness have not been adequately established". Having said that, if you are feeling so poorly, you should make an appointment for a second opinion with a primary care or an infectious disease doctor. Keep going until you are better! ...Read more
Regd OPK test. Tried testing @ CD 11 and saw light line and on CD12 /13/14 don't see any line. What could be wrong. Last cycle same thing happend?
I'm on cd 15 and had a positive read this morning on an ovulation predictor test, I retested again later in the afternoon and it was negative - why?
Possible: There is about a 10-20% false positive with the home ovulation kits. Go ahead and plan on intercourse tonight and tomorrow. If you're not pregnant this cycle, you may need medicine like Clomid (clomiphene) or Femara to help you ovulate regularly...Especially if you have a history of irregular cycles. ...Read more

No Guessing: Please go get a pregnancy test. There is absolutely no reason to wonder or to ask physicians to guess. It is time for a test. ...Read more
Why do so many dr.'s have diff. Opinions on what cd is too late to ovulate on? Some say past cd18, some say cd16 what is the truth to this or is there
The truth: It depends on the length of a women's cycle. You generally ovulate approximately 14 days from the length of your cycle. In other words, if your cycle is 28 days, you ovulate on day 14, 30 days, day 16, 32 days day 18, 26 days day 12. So making love every other day from day 12-18 covers you for ovulation for a day 26-32 day cycle. Make sense? Hope this helps. ...Read more
I take cardizem cd 120mg and vytoryn 10/20 -it comes up as major interaction-should I notify my dr's about this. They are prescribed by 2 different drs?
Yes, notify: In general, any doctor prescribing for you needs to know all other medications that you are taking. Cardizem (diltiazem) can increase the level of Simvastatin in your blood (one of the components of vytorin). However, you are on a very small dose of the Simvastatin so the chance of a significant problem is extremely low. Blood tests of liver function would pick up a problem. ...Read more

Can you clarify?: Omg is a texting-age expression "oh my god" but used even by secularists to express amazement and dismay at once. It's no medical acronym that I recognize though there are some trashy websites preseting medical freaks as having "omg disease". To which disease are you referring? Someone on healthtap will be happy to answer. ...Read more
