Sat, Jan 4 1:12pm · C Difficile: Do you have memory issues, disoriention, confusion? in Digestive Health

I didn't have any issues other than the weight loss and belly pain. I was on antibiotics for roughly 29 days for a UTI that was misdiagnosed. I developed C-diff as a result of this and lost 20 pounds in less than 2 weeks. I was placed on vancomycin for approximately 60 days and that took care of the problem. I was also taking Bio-K plus probiotics for approximately 3 months and now take Florastor daily and have had no further issues. I hope this helps. I know how miserable C-diff is.

Dec 26, 2019 · Bladder Infections in Kidney & Bladder

I don't but my sister-in-law does and she has chronic uti's. I thought that maybe that could be a contributing factor because of our anatomy. I'm not sure that she has discussed this with her urologist. But, in reality, it makes some sense.

Dec 25, 2019 · Bladder Infections in Kidney & Bladder

I have tried to research every possible condition that can lead to recurrent UTI in women. Is it possible that hemorrhoids could impede emptying the bladder completely and that in turn would lead to recurrent UTI's? Since women are prone to UTI's due to childbirth, maybe this could be one cause that can be researched. Just a thought.

Has anyone had a rubber band ligation for hemorrhoids? My friend is considering having it done but, is terrified of everything she reads online. Is the procedure that painful and risky?

Nov 16, 2019 · Advice on using HRT please in Women's Health

I don't use any of the bone sparing medications because of the side effects. My chiropractor recommended Bone Restore with Vitamin K2. These are sold thru Life Extension. They contain 3 types of calcium, Vit D, magnesium, K2, etc. The K2 is important because it keeps the calcium in your bones and directs it away from your arteries. I read several scholarly articles from the National Institute of Health and they all recommended the K2 along with the calcium. Hope this helps.

Aug 31, 2019 · Have hematuria. Trying to find cause. in Kidney & Bladder

I have had microscopic hematuria ever since I went thru menopause. I have had every test in the books trying to find a cause – there is none. I was told that since my estrogen levels are to the point of being non-existent, this causes the tissue to thin and allows traces of blood to leak thru the fragile tissue. It is quite common in menopause and post menopause. My urologist recommended topical estrogen cream which is quite safe because all it does is replenish the tissue locally which helps with recurrent UTI. Hope this helps.

Aug 5, 2019 · AFib - Question about blood thinners in Heart Rhythm Conditions

I also take Eliquis. I had one episode of A-Fib 4 years ago that lasted only 1 1/2 hours. Haven't had a problem since. Eliquis seems to be the safest of all anticoagulants because it has significantly less risk of bleeding. It actually has less bleeding risk than aspirin. I've cut myself several times and have not had any problems

Aug 5, 2019 · Increasing bone density naturally after menopause in Women's Health

I just started taking a vitamin offered by Life Extension. It is called Bone Restore with K2. It was highly recommended. It contains 3 different types of calcium, Vit D 3, K2, Magnesium, Zinc, and Manganese. I also just got off the treadmill after walking 1 3/4 miles. I don't like taking drugs and I feel that they are just pushed on us because it is easier than making lifestyle changes.
