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.
Will my lead levels naturally go down if I stay away from it? I can't, but I can take better precautions.
Yes that's the main treatment
If with your job make sure they following regs
Cool. It's all me at work. I have to take better care.
Thanks for information
No problem be safe
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."
Yeah bullshit lol
Joe what's your job?
That sounds terrible.
Emt-b on an ambulance

Any other med students in here?

Anyone in here that took emt certification class in CA? @here
Its the same pretty much anywhere you can get a national emt B cert
haha no I don’t mean that I’m a med student. I was tagging @ here so you could find other med students quicker
Sweet, I have a test tomorrow on Kidney systems. I'll be up all night studying.
Funny how little of the physiology remains clinically relevant
What's the rundown on scars? I have particularly bad one I would like to get rid of
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)
Is there anything I can do to get rid of it non surgically?
It's about the size of a quarter
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.
The scar I used mine on is completely flesh colored now and all the keloid parts were flattened. They work even on old scars.
Look up silicone for reducing scars. It's used in burn units and things like that.
Definitely follow the directions for best results.
