damn, noted

I've been having my blood monitored because my lead levels are a little high, well the doctor told me to eat more salt. Is that really a thing? I feel like I eat to much salt.

I've never heard of salt re lead. You might have low levels incidentally though

@Deleted User hmmm thanks. I take a lot of C, because I was told that it will bind with the lead. I probably need to take more D and calcium. I'm lactose intolerant too. So any calcium would be good.

2017-11-02 20:34:41 UTC  

Will my lead levels naturally go down if I stay away from it? I can't, but I can take better precautions.

2017-11-02 20:48:09 UTC  

Yes that's the main treatment

2017-11-02 20:48:27 UTC  

If with your job make sure they following regs

2017-11-02 20:53:39 UTC  

Cool. It's all me at work. I have to take better care.
Thanks for information

Just treated a lady who had her throat cut (shes fine) "accidentally" by her son. "He was stripping copper wire, and i just walked in to the knife. It was my fault."

2017-11-07 23:50:21 UTC  

Yeah bullshit lol

2017-11-07 23:50:32 UTC

@Alexander-IA practicing IM doc here if you have questions

2017-12-08 01:47:44 UTC  

Sweet, I have a test tomorrow on Kidney systems. I'll be up all night studying.

2017-12-08 02:34:52 UTC  

Funny how little of the physiology remains clinically relevant

2017-12-09 06:36:07 UTC  

What's the rundown on scars? I have particularly bad one I would like to get rid of

2017-12-09 06:37:21 UTC  

It's really bad tbh. It's not very large but the skin is basically a lump that's raised several millimeters and looks awful. It's also pretty painful, contact with it causes shooting pain all over my right ribcage (it's just a bit below my right pect)

2017-12-09 06:37:42 UTC  

Is there anything I can do to get rid of it non surgically?

2017-12-09 06:37:57 UTC  

It's about the size of a quarter

2017-12-09 06:39:51 UTC  

I'm not medically trained but I have a bad scar and experience with this. Your scar is a keloid. You can reduce it with silicone scar strips and they work really well with keloids and reducing the color.

2017-12-09 06:40:45 UTC  

The scar I used mine on is completely flesh colored now and all the keloid parts were flattened. They work even on old scars.

2017-12-09 06:41:42 UTC  

Look up silicone for reducing scars. It's used in burn units and things like that.

2017-12-09 06:41:50 UTC  

Sweet thx

2017-12-09 06:41:56 UTC  


2017-12-09 06:42:34 UTC  

Definitely follow the directions for best results.
