What Is The Average Lifespan Of Someone With Peripheral Neupathy
Not in itself: Neuropathy can increase yor risk of an ulcer or infection in your foot, but this risk can be minimized by performing daily skin checks of your feet. Imbalance from neuropathy can also increase your risk of fall. The underlying condition responsible for your neuropathy (like diabetes) is more likely to shorten your lifespan than neuropathy itself. It is a nuisance and a burden nonetheless. ...Read more
Lifespan: In my clinical experience of 31 years practicing neonatal medicine, I would have to answer your question with a vague response. This is because each affected child does not necessarily have the same degree of affliction. The literature on this tells us that 99.9% die before a year of age. I have not seen one survive longer than two months, and I have seen many. ...Read more
Depends on symptoms: Patients with uncorrected aortic stenosis have a poor survival: half of the patients that develop angina (chest pain) will die within 5 years, half of the patients that develop syncope (passing out) will die within 3 years, and half of the patients that develop heart failure will die within 2 years. Aortic valve replacement can pretty much normalize the life span and improve symptoms markedly. ...Read more
18 years: Most patients with duchenne muscular dystrophy die of cardiorespiratory failure around age 18. ...Read more
Depends: Many girls can lead a full life, while others could fall victim to many of the anomolies associated with turners. ...Read more
Essentially normal: With appropriate treatment should be essentially normal. ...Read more
Vague question: You need t know the gradient across the stenosis. High gradients require valve replacement, as the left ventricle will begin to enlarge (hypertrophy) which can eventually lead to heart failure. Echocardiography and/or left ventricular angiography performed by an interventional cardiologist can define the gradient, then you both can decide on best treatment options. ...Read more
Complicated: The answer depends on several factors including the underlying liver disease, the size number and pattern of spread within the liver, and any other medical problems that the patient has that will effect their ability to tolerate therapy. There are several treatments available for hcc. ...Read more
Days/weeks.: Stillbirth (see picture) is very common. Of liveborns, 80% of affected infants die within the first month of life; only 5% survive the first six months. Severe intellectual disability, seizures, and failure to thrive are noticeable in survivors over 1 year of age. No interventions for fetal benefit are ethically justifiable during pregnancy (no cesarean section, no fetal monitoring indicated). ...Read more
Friends mom was juts diagnosed with stage 3 aggressive multiple myloma at 58. What is the average lifespan after diagnosis of this?
If someone has de compensating cirrhosis, what is the average lifespan if the person does not get a liver transplant?
Depends: If ascites and edema, elevated bilirubin and especially upper gastrointestinal bleeding occur, the average lifespan is less than a year. However, alcoholic cirrhosis can be treated with steroids in some cases, and this may prolong life. There are other things to reduce bleeding, and decrease edema etc., treat other symptoms (itching) that may improve lifespan and quality of life some. Stop alcohol. ...Read more
Less than 6 months: Unfortunately, pancreatic cancer is diagnosed late in most people - when it has already spread within the abdomen or to the liver. The average life span for that is less than 6 months, maybe a little better (but not much) with chemo. If the tumor can be removed surgically, the average life span then is over a year, but a small percent can be cured with a combination of surgery, chemo, radiation. ...Read more
Too Complex for Data: There are too many variables to offer even a wild guess; such data more hollywood writers than physicians. Current age, age at onset, age when first started (before onset), how severe, how treated, in what ways, with what degree of success, potential complications of multiple interacting treatment strategies, how long would have lived without dm, etc. Are all huge & highly relevant variables. ...Read more
It depends partly on: Whether or not she's on medication to stimulate ovarian follicles. If she is, it means her ovaries are partially responding. If not, she might have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a condition that produces multiple follicles that don't maturing enough to release an egg. Often these follicles persist, creating multiple cysts. Mature follicles are 16-20 mm in size. I wish you both the best. Dr. Anne ...Read more
Is an average of 4-5 drinks per day for 4 years enough to induce alcoholic peripheral neuropathy?
On average what percentage of optic nerve damage must there be in order to show a loss of peripheral vision on a field test?
No: Unless I suppose someone is more prone to accidents because they only have one good eye and therefore poor stereopsis. ...Read more

Maybe: There are several models that calculate predicted survival, including outcomes after liver transplant for patients with pbc (http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/gi-rst/models. Html). However, prognosis for pbc has improved greatly over the last 20 years. Now, many patients with early stage pbc may have a normal life expectancy with treatment. ...Read more
See comments: Cidp is an autoimmune disorder predominantly affecting the myelin coverings of the peripheral nerves, and can readily be controlled in over 80% of people by monthly ivig (intravenous immune globulin) infusions. Life span would not be shortened if the disorder is appropriately managed. ...Read more
Lengthy: Modern medicine can replace the missing clotting factor giving hemophiliacs a normal life expectancy. Treatment for problems is also excellent and so hemophiliacs should do well with reasonable access to care. ...Read more
Probably: Depends on amount and pattern of use, but there are effects on liver and other organ systems depending on which drug you are referring to. Certainly overuse of any substance would effect your lifespan. ...Read more
1: Smoking has many problems, not just the nicotene and tar. The paper has heavy metal toxins including arsenic, cyanide and cadmium. But the major problem is the carbon monoxide ingestion. This problem causes inadequate oxygenation of our tissues. So therefore, it increases the risk of every disease and cancer secondary to our tissues not repairing correctly. ...Read more
