What Is The Main Difference Between Heparin Sodium And Heparin Calcium
Low molecular weight: Heparin is used as an anticoagulant. In low doses the intent is to prevent clotting. In full dose it is used to treat an established clot. If is given as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection, which is more convenient than a continuous IV infusion of standard heparin. ...Read more
Lovenox vs. heparin: Unfractionated Heparin (UFH) & enoxaparin (lovenox or lmwh) both prevent blood clots by indirectly inhibiting the function of 2 important clotting factors, xa and iia (thrombin). Ufh is very large , while lmwh is smaller. Dosing of UFH is IV or sq every 8-12 hrs, and lmwh sq every 12-24 hrs. Care is needed with lmwh if renal failure. Ufh is more likely to cause hit, a dangerous allergic reaction. ...Read more
It's complicated.: Caffeine doesn't have much of an effect on it except slightly as a diuretic. Likewise, alcohol doesn't have much of an effect on it or there'd be calcium problems All The Time. sodium, however, has an exchange with calcium. If the sodium load is high, the calcium control is somewhat messed up. Some diuretics (not caffeine or alcohol though) put sodium in the urine and push calcium back in. ...Read more

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.
Not bio-available: The short answer is that calcium Fluoride is so extremely insoluble as to be considered unusable by your body. Sodium and stannous fluorides are able to be broken down and then the fluorides can enter into and bond with the enamel. Enamel is made of a ring of ions and the Fluoride substitutes in the center to form a more stable ring. This new "ring" is more resistant to decay. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
