My 12 year old has POTS (dysautonomia) and MCAD. He is very gifted, and lately, when he studies for long periods of time, writes a research paper, or takes tests, he becomes sick afterwards. His lung capacity is at about 70% overall, but he can’t tolerate Xopenex or most steroids. We’re trying Intal soon. I’m wondering if he isn’t low on oxygen when using brain power, but normally he is at 97-98%. If anyone has any advice or comments, please send them my way. Alec is on H1, H2 blockers, Gastrocrom, Midodrine (vasoconstrictor for POTS). He is getting headaches and episodes a few times a week, now. Will oxygen help? Any other suggestions?
Myeloproliferative diseases are a group of disorders associated with proliferation of one or more distinct cell lines. Patients can experience fatigue, weight loss, abdominal discomfort, easy bruising or bleeding, infections, as well as other symptoms. A specific diagnosis can be based on laboratory studies (. complete blood counts, leukocyte alkaline phosphatase score, polymerase chain reaction assay, serum uric acid level, red blood cell mass) and bone marrow biopsies, which would reflect a change in blood cell counts. Management of the myeloproliferative disease depends on the specific cause. Patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia can be treated with a number of chemotherapeutic agents. In comparison, treatment is targeted at supportive care for patients with polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and myelofibrosis. Chronic eosinophilic leukemia is characterized by increased eosinophils carrying genetic alterations in blood and bone marrow and is often associated with increased mast cells.
Absolutely. You will obviously have to find areas on your own body where you can pin ED. Guys running long estered Test or Deca shooting E3D or less frequently can get away with only doing Glutes and Shoulders. ED guys need to find a few more spots. Unless maybe you did Delt1, Delt2, Glute1 and Glute2 that would give you four days between spots. Needles size might play a role too. Some guys use slin 29G needles. I never did but then a sharp 23G with warm oil never bothered me at all, even ED as long as it was a fresh site on the body
