re: How do you cure your dogs upset stomach/diarrhea? UPDATE pg. 2 - Elephino
Not a dog owner, eh? Vets have been recommending canned pumpkin forever. My neighborhood is new with about 12 houses under construction at any given time. The workers dump shite (food wrappers, chicken bones, etc) in the lots where they work and the undeveloped spaces. We walk her daily and labs w...

re: Fertility clinics destroy embryos all the time. Why no protests? - Elephino
You can freeze unfertilized eggs and sperm, as well as embryos following fertilization. The issue is quite complex too. Hundreds of thousands of embryos remain in frozen limbo because the mothers cannot bring themselves to destroy them. They sometimes end up paying a monthly or yearly storage fee...

[quote]and give honest answers to things no politician will say[/quote] You seem to have mistaken "honest" with "things angry, fed-up Americans want to hear". The only record Trump (as an outsider/non-politician) has to be vetted on is his record of previous statements regarding some of these i...

re: Diovan for blood pressure - Elephino
Yes, the hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that is intended to make you piss to reduce fluid volume. The diovan is an ARB (angiotensin receptor blocker). Typically the side-effects from ARBs are very mild (headache, tiredness) and dissipate with continued use. ...

re: TRUMP POLL: Up Vote/Down Vote Political Talk Edition... 62% Yay 38% Nay - Elephino
I WOULD vote for any republican or 3rd party nominee over HRC or Bernie. I personally believe that Donald Trump has always been a self-serving,narcissistic, ass. Unfortunately, we already have one of those in the White House. But, he's exactly what our self-absorbed, reality TV culture deserves....

re: OT Medical Professionals - Low Iron - Elephino
Iron isn't absorbed particularly well to begin with, but ferrous salt forms and heme iron from meat are best. He's obviously not in bad enough shape to need infed injections. You are also arguing the difference between ferric and ferrous iron when you brought up transferrin and ferritin. Ferritin...

re: OT Medical Professionals - Low Iron - Elephino
Ferrous sulfate is the norm. It's the form you see in many of the slow release formulations (Slow Fe). Some people don't tolerate the supplements very well...nausea and occasional constipation. The previous poster is correct. Heme bound iron found in blood and muscle (hemoglobin and myoglobin) i...

re: OT Medical Professionals - Low Iron - Elephino
The labeling is ambiguous. It says iron as as the amino acid chelate, but the larger label lists ferrous fumarate in the ingredient list. The two are not the same. Iron chelated to amino acids are typically how iron is added to food for iron fortification (think cereals). Even those can be diffe...

re: OT Medical Professionals - Low Iron - Elephino
Assuming you follow-up on the underlying cause part of this situation, you also need to be aware of the type of iron that you are ingesting/supplementing. Ferric iron and ferrous iron are not equivalent in terms of bioavailability. Ferrous iron is more easily absorbed. The body will reduce ferric ...

re: Amlodipine. Frick I am old. Any input from prescribers or folks taking it? - Elephino

re: Amlodipine. Frick I am old. Any input from prescribers or folks taking it? - Elephino
I would consider it a bit curious for your doc to go straight to amlodipine if HBP were the only consideration. Not wrong, just curious. ACE inhibitors (lisinopril) and ARBS (losartan) are usually 1st line with perhaps the addition of a diuretic. Calcium channel blockers have more of a direct eff...

re: 22y/o college student blows her $90,000 college fund and blames her parents - Elephino
