Re: Help! Stomach Neuropathy

dry heaves can be tracked back to pancreas and/or liver …ask for proper
evaluation of damage….before taking more pills which sometimes toxify liver…

Re: symtoms/side effects/treatment

Instead of throwing pills at symptoms (side effects of pills often have warnings
about liver toxification…why don’t you research about the Pancreas…symptoms
relating to each disorder (there are many and they can be caused by spleen and
/or affect spleen, bowel, liver)…then ask for appropriate tests and
evaluation…not just sugar in urine…all that shows is that your diet needs
adjusting… (or further evaluation is required)…

Just my humble opinion
Jean

*sigh*
They tell us not to ASSume but scientists extrapolate and physicians
hypothecize… name games, eh?  Methinks we have to stop throwing pills at
symptoms and find the real problems…

jaundice questions please.

Hi:
Does anyone know, if one has had their gall bladder previously removed
(the old-fashioned way with big cut)…if something goes wrong with the
liver…do you still get jaundice?

Is it possible to get jaundice and not be aware of it?  if you are
already sick, your eyesight is not good and you don’t go out much …(I
don’t think I would have noticed unless someone would have pointed out
that I was yellow or had yellow eyes…

Yet my sister does not remember me having it as a child?…Is there a
test to find out how long ago you had it.?

Thanks

Jean

GnRH modulation

Hello,
I was studying endocrinology when the question of the way that the
peripheral steroids modulate the release of GnRH came up to me. I am
interested to learn the exact molecular mechanisms that are involved in this
modulation. For example how the increased concentration of the progesteron
in the blood affects the release of the GnRH. I mean not the result-the
decrease- but the way that it is achieved.

Thank you in advance
Michael

Telepathology: Any Ideas?

Greetings sci.med.pathology’ers,

I’m attempting to write a "poor man’s" telepathology system which works on
ordinary PCs (e.g. Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, Linux, etc.) and uses
internet mail to transport case images and notes.

I’m currently designing the software, and I’d be interested to hear from
you, potential users, about any features you think would be useful or about
any concerns you have with this sort of software.

My intention is to make it Free Software under the GNU General Public
License when it is complete. For more information about Free Software and
the Free Software Foundation, see www.gnu.org or www.fsf.org.

Sincerely,
Dominic Cooney, coon…@ozemail.com.au
