Have you had experience with cox 2 inhibitor in conjunction with a heart murmur?

Some: Being that i practice peds cardiology my experience with this is limited. But one thing that i gather from your question is that you might be assuming that heart murmur = heart problem and this is not usually the case. Heart murmurs can be very normal sounds. Cox 2 inhibitors have been associated with increased incidence of cardiac death but you ask your doctor about your situation. ...Read more

What is the natural inhibitor of insulin in the body or does it break down and what makes it break down and into what?

What is the natural inhibitor of insulin in the body or does it break down and what makes it break down and into what?

Glucagon: Insulin stimulates glucose uptake into cells, and glucagon stimulates glucose release by cells, mostly the liver. Glucagon is not really an Insulin inhibitor, but a counterregulatory hormone. If your glucose is low, you need glucagon and adrenaline to get glu back up. Insulin is cleared from plasma quickly mostly by liver and kidney; chopped up by protease enzymes into inactive pieces. ...Read more

C1 Esterase Inhibitor Panel had two functional and one protein level. The protein level was 11 (20-40 ml/dL). What does that mean? Other two normal.

C1 Esterase Inhibitor Panel had two functional and one protein level. The protein level was 11 (20-40 ml/dL). What does that mean? Other two normal.

Makes no sense: C1INH assays may show low C1INH (which you appears to have) or normal C1INH level with impaired functioning if you are looking for the typical cases of hereditary edema. If the quantity is low, there cannot be normal functioning. If you do have HAE, treatment should be started promptly to prevent throat swelling. ...Read more

Can I have two glasses of orange juice while I am taking 8 mg Perindopril ACE inhibitor and 10 mg of bisoprolol beta blocker daily for hypertension.

Can I have two glasses of orange juice while I am taking 8 mg Perindopril ACE inhibitor and 10 mg of bisoprolol  beta blocker daily for hypertension.

Not the best idea: While there are no specific precautions about drinking orange juice with these medications, you may be referring to the fact that sometimes orange juice contains potassium supplementation. You are correct that one should be very cautious with extra potassium while taking an ACE inhibitor. Beyond that, two glasses of orange juice contains 220 calories of simple carbohydrate: not a healthy choice. ...Read more

Are there natural sources of Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors? I've read pomegranate, milk thistle and turmeric are? True?

Are there natural sources of Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors? I've read pomegranate, milk thistle and turmeric are? True?

Verify your sources: Sadly, despite a huge level of interest in the medicinal properties of foods, or maybe because of it, there is an enormous amount of false, half true, or exaggerated information on the internet. In regards to CAI in Pomegranate, I found a review article in an Iranian pharmacy journal that cited 2 chemistry review articles, neither of which makes any mention of Pomegranate whatsoever. ...Read more

No - beta-sitosterol: No -there are no 5-aris available indicated to treat female-patterned alopecia. As far as otc products, beta-sitosterol probably does have activity similar to the 5-aris, but is only 1/1000th as potent, and, again, is not indicated for female-patterned alopecia. ...Read more
