What Is The Main Difference Between Heparin Sodium And Heparin Calcium
Heparin comes in different forms. For blood collection tubes, the two common forms are sodium and lithium.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
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 (enoxaparin) 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

Blood tests: There are a few diseases that leap out from blood tests. Most of the time, however, blood tests don't tell the doctor much on their own. These results fall into the second group, not very specific. They do not sound alarming. ...Read more
Depends: Since calcium tends to constipate, i'd tend to side with the sodium version. However, people with hypertension who are limiting their sodium intake should probably choose the calcium version. The docusate is the active component; so either version should work. Adding more fiber & fluids to your diet will help keep you regular, too. ...Read more

Osteonecrosis (AVN): Nonoperative management for avn of the femoral head (hips) is generally ineffective. If 15% or less of the femoral head is involved & no symptoms are present, there is a chance it will resolve without surgical intervention. Treatment with bisphosphonates has been tried with variable results. Joint preserving surgical procedures may be the best available option. ...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 more

Probably dehydration: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, since all of these values are elevated, you were likely dehydrated when blood was drawn, however, you should discuss the findings with your doctor. ...Read more
Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?
Not necessarily;same: All vitamins go by 2 names, their letter name & chemical name. Ascorbic acid is the chemical name of vit c, as pyridoxine is the chemical name of b6 etc. Ascorbic acid refers to both natural & synthetic forms. Almost all vit c supps are synthetic & most derived from corn which is likely gmo. I favor c from non-corn sources like cassava root.Calcium & sodium ascorbate are equally effective.

Is it ok I am taking bone-up superior calcium formula is a dietary supplement. Taking this instead of the medication alendronate sodium tablets 70 mg?
Osteopenia: Calcium is commonly not an issue as dietary calcium is often sufficient with most people's daily dietary intake. More commonly, osteopenia/osteoporosis is correlated with vitamin d deficiency. I'd have your calcium and vitamin d levels checked. Resistance exercises also help build stronger bones. There are side-effects to bisphosphonate therapy, but believed that their benefits outweigh the risks. ...Read more
