SYMPTOMS

Hundreds of symptoms may be due to chronic mercury toxicity. The organ most affected is often the brain, and children suffer the most from many mercury-related disorders. Mercury may be a factor in increasing birth defect rates, autism and other developmental delays, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxieties, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive behavior, panic attacks, neuroses and paresthesias. A medical colleague reports that every case of multiple sclerosis he has seen involves mercury.

The “mat hatters” of the Alice In Wonderland story were real people who worked in the hat industry in the nineteenth century. Many became mentally ill due to rubbing mercury on felt or hides to soften it.
Here is a long list of symptoms and conditions that may be associated with mercury. Note that mercury toxicity is usually found with copper toxicity, and perhaps other metal toxicity. So it is not always possible to separate the cause of the symptoms exactly:
~ Acne – Opportunistic infections cause by general immune suppression.
~ Adrenal insufficiency and burnout.
~ Allergies – Gut wall deterioration via mutated intestinal flora)
~ Anorexia
· ~ Apathy, Feelings of (especially toward property and personal affairs)
· ~ Asthma
· ~ Ataxia
· ~ Autism (contrary to popular belief, there is very strong medical evidence linking autism to mercury)
· ~ Nearsightedness & Farsightedness (by altering interocular fluid eye pressure)
· ~ Autoimmune Diseases (through methionine mimicry and other processes)
· ~ Amylotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
· ~ Ankylosing spondylitis
· ~ Arterial Sclerosis
· ~ Mercury activates an enzyme called phospholipase D (PLD) in cells which line blood vessel walls (endothelial cells). This activation causes the release of phosphatidic acid which damages the cells.(2) These damaged cells then accumulate cholesterol-based plaque leading to arterial sclerosis.
· ~ Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease Risk Factor (KIHD) study: 2,005 men (ages 42 to 60) without heart disease are divided into four groups based on hair-mercury content and tracked for an average of 12 years. Those in the top 25 percent for hair mercury had a 60% increased risk of death from CVD. Those same men had a 70% increased risk of coronary heart disease.(7)
· ~ Myasthenia Gravis
· ~ Parkinson’s Disease
· ~ Acid Reflux – Caused by reduced digestive fluid production.
· ~ Alzheimer’s Disease (See Beating Alzheimer’s) Quote From Book Review: “He had the mercury removed from his teeth and it did not change things. However,some time later when his gums were x-rayed a tiny sliver of mercury was found in the gum tissue. He had surgery to remove this minute piece of mercury and at the moment of its removal he experienced complete lucidity.”
· ~ Aneurysm
· ~ Anxiety
· ~ Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
· ~ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
· ~ Blood in the Urine

Symptoms may be ill-defined because the exact location and the amount of mercury vary with each individual. Metal toxicity is unlike many infections that have well-defined symptom presentations.

DETECTION

Chronic mercury toxicity does not receive more attention because it is difficult to detect. Simple blood or urine tests are practically useless because the body quickly removes mercury from the blood. It often settles deep in the tissues of the brain, kidneys and liver.

Urine or Feces Challenge Tests. These are common methods for detecting chronic mercury. A high dose of DMPS, a chelating drug that is not safe, is often administered. Then urine is collected for 24-hour hours and analyzed for mercury. The test is almost always “positive”. This may be because mercury is high in many sick people. However, the lab and doctor must be careful not to confuse a “normal” mercury with a mercury produced by a challenge test.
Other problems with this test are that it misses a lot of mercury. The drug does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier very well, so it often misses this key organ where mercury accumulates.

Hair Tissue Biopsy. Any hair level of mercury above about 0.02 mg% is too much in my view. Mercury does not always accumulate in large quantity in the hair. In my experience, however, the hair mineral test provides indicators of ‘hidden mercury’ that are relatively reliable as well. These include:
· An elevated copper above about 2.5 mg%.
· Hidden copper toxicity indicators such as a high hair calcium, a low hair potassium, a low sodium/potassium ratio and a low zinc level. For more on copper, read Copper Toxicity Syndrome.
· Indicators for a hidden zinc deficiency. For more information about zinc, read Zinc on this website.
· Elevated levels of cadmium, arsenic or aluminum often indicate the presence of hidden mercury.

Using these criteria, most people have excess mercury today. This is no surprise. I assume excess mercury is present and contributing to chronic health problems today, especially for those who were vaccinated, those who eat fish at least twice weekly and for those who have or had dental amalgams in their mouths.

Other detection methods. A few practitioners use electrical machines or applied kinesiology techniques (muscle checking) to identify mercury problems. These methods are okay, but are dependent on the skill and clarity of the operator.

NUTRIENTS and VITAMINS
~
PCOS Lady:
Your doctor rarely ever checks your nutrients and vitamins… Did you know the blood is the last thing to check on you? Why? Because when something shows up in your blood your body is starting to die inside!!!! Your doctor should be checking your nutrients and vitamins as well! I suggest you have them all checked at some point to see where your levels are… A Basis… Then get them in line and reevaluate your symptoms a month later… I am going on 1st hand observation and ongoing research i read into…
~ Hair Mineral Analysis checks minerals and nutrients in you…
~
* NOTE: The best way to get the nutrients and vitamins is to eat the foods that contain them! Otherwise your body disposes of most of the supplement pills, wasting your money…
~ Dr Oz did explain you can take half the pills (cut in half each pill) in the am and pm, which should help cut down on waste…
~
* We know most doctors love to treat symptoms! Research your symptoms, know where they originate if you can… Do not become a “zombie” from being over medicated or misdiagnosed or misdiagnosed…

Cancer

~
Bacterial Endocarditis
Gum disease exists in about 75% of Americans, and many do not realize that risk factors associated with serious health concerns such as heart disease and stroke have been associated with gum disease. Researchers have found that people with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease. This type of heart disease occurs when plaques (deposits of fat, cholesterol, calcium and other material) form in the walls of the coronary arteries, causing the walls to become thicker. That essentially makes it harder for the blood to flow through, limiting the amount of oxygen and nutrients that are necessary for proper heart function.
~ Bacterial endocarditis is a dangerous infection that involves the lining of the heart and is commonly caused when bacteria enters the blood during medical procedures. During dental treatment, a common organism found in the mouth known as Streptococcus Viridan may enter the bloodstream and travel to the heart. This may cause infected blood clot formations that are able to travel to the brain, lungs, kidney, and spleen. Fifty percent of bacterial endocarditis cases are caused by Streptococcus Viridans.

Hypopituitarism Pituitary Insufficiency

Posted in FATIGUE, RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:18 pm by PCOSLady

Hypopituitarism Pituitary Insufficiency
~
Pituitary insufficiency post is important since many people are having radiation, brain surgery, etc… today… You may not be told of the long after effects that can occur in you!
~ … My close friend had a deadly cancer removed from his sinus cavity (under eye) a few years ago… The fatigue and pituitary symptoms started two years ago… The symptoms are now progressing real quick! He was up 24/7 now he just wants or has to sleep like 24/7…
~
Hypopituitarism
~
Pituitary Insufficiency
~
Hypopituitarism is a condition in which the pituitary gland does not produce normal amounts of some or all of its hormones.
~
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
~
The pituitary gland is a small structure that is located just below the brain. It is attached by a stalk to the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that controls its function.
~
The hormones released by the pituitary gland (and their functions) are:
~
~ Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) — stimulates the adrenal gland to release cortisol; cortisol helps to maintain blood pressure and blood sugar
~ Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) — controls water loss by the kidneys
~ Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) — controls sexual function and fertility in males and females
~ Growth hormone (GH) — stimulates growth of tissues and bone
~ Luteinizing hormone (LH) — controls sexual function and fertility in males and females
~ Oxytocin — stimulates the uterus to contract during labor and the breasts to release milk
~ Prolactin — stimulates female breast development and milk production
~ Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) — stimulates the thyroid gland to release hormones that affect the body’s metabolism
~
In hypopituitarism, there is a lack of one or more pituitary hormones. Lack of the hormone leads to loss of function in the gland or organ that it controls. For example, no TSH leads to loss of function in the thyroid gland.
~
Hypopituitarism may be caused by:
~
~ Brain surgery
~ Brain tumor
~ Head trauma
~ Infections of the brain and the tissues that support the brain
~ Radiation
~ Stroke
~ Subarachnoid hemorrhage (from a burst aneurysm)
~ Tumors of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus
~
Occasionally, hypopituitarism is due to uncommon immune system or metabolic diseases, such as:
~
~ Hemochromatosis
~ Histiocytosis X
~ Lymphocytic hypophysitis
~ Sarcoidosis
~
Hypopituitarism is also a rare complication after pregnancy, a condition called Sheehan’s syndrome.
~
Symptoms
~
~ Abdominal pain
~ Decreased appetite
~ Decreased sexual interest (in men)
~ Failure to release milk (in women)
~ Fatigue
~ Headache
~ Infertility (in women)
~ Lack of sex drive (in women)
~ Loss of armpit or pubic hair
~ Loss of body or facial hair (in men)
~ Low blood pressure
~ Sensitivity to cold
~ Short height (less than 5 feet) if onset is during a growth period
~ Slowed growth and sexual development (in children)
~ Stopping of menstrual periods (in women)
~ Vision problems
~ Weakness
~ Weight loss
~
Note: Symptoms may develop slowly and may vary greatly, depending upon:

~
~ The number of hormones that are missing and the organs they affect
~ The severity of the disorder
~
Other symptoms that may occur with this disease:
~
~ Face swelling
~ Hair loss
~ Hoarseness or changing voice
~ Joint stiffness
~ Weight gain (unintentional)
~
Signs and tests
~
To diagnose hypopituitarism, there must be low hormone levels due to a problem with the pituitary gland. The diagnosis must also rule out diseases of the organ that is affected by this hormone.
~
Tests include:
~
~ Brain CT scan
~ Pituitary MRI
~ Serum ACTH
~ Serum cortisol
~ Serum estradiol (estrogen)
~ Serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
~ Serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)
~ Serum luteinizing hormone (LH)
~ Serum testosterone level
~ Serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
~ Thyroid hormone (T4)
~
Levels of a pituitary hormone may be high in the bloodstream if you have a pituitary tumor that is producing too much of that hormone. The tumor may crush other cells of the pituitary, leading to low levels of other hormones.

INFO: FYI, FACTS, LINKS

Posted in INFO PLUS tagged , , , , , , , , , at 2:11 am by PCOSLady

FACT ~ INFO ~ LINKS ~ FYI
~ ~ ~
FACTS:
* 2004 the AACE www.aace.com made PCOS a priority to doctors…
www.aace.com/pub/pdf/guidelines/PCOSpositionstatement.pdf
~
* PCOS is a syndrome… YOU only have to have 1 symptom to be diagnosed with it… Main ones are; irregular menses ~ excessive male patterned hair growth ~ polycystic ovaries ~ unable to get pregnant…
~
* Your body can not tolerate sugar or flour, therefore you wear it… Diets best for you are high in protein and complex carbs, snacks of protein… Another thing to always do is eat your carbs with protein to lose and maintain weight…
~
* PCOS treatments are as individual as PCOS symptoms are in every woman… One treatment will never work for every woman! * If one doesn’t work try another or combinations of things* (Most doctors do one thing and drop you, so it seems …
~ I hear this all the time)… Important to join the forum at http://www.pcosupport.org/
~
* Diabetic drugs have been proven by research to keep PCOS women from developing full blown Diabetes 2 !!! ~ My case: My insulin level hit 26 one time in all my tests, my MD doc put me on Glucophlage XR 500 mg/daily… (my regular ranges are 22-24)
~
* Metformin ( the generic)
most likely will make you ill or feel ill (upset stomach, headaches, etc…) … Doctors and pharmacies push and sneak this pill on you… REFUSE IT!!! DEMAND the Metformin ER, extended release or Glucophlage XR…
~ I love Glucophlage XR, the side effects are pluses for me…
~
* PCOS It is hereditary…
~
* Being fat because with PCOS is not your fault! … You have a medical condition wreaking havoc through your whole body from the hormone imbalance…
~
* Exercise and diet alone will not work! Infact, you can starve yourself and maybe lose a few pounds, you can beat yourself exercizing and see minimal results… Why? Your hormones are messed up!
_
* If a doctor tells you to exercise and diet, YOU NEED TO RUN FROM THAT DOCTOR!!! They know nothing about PCOS! *
~
* IF your doctor wants more tests done than on my Test List ask why…. Ask why if most of the tests from my list are not done… Plus have your doctor write the reasons you need tests not covered by your insurance to make them get covered by insurance companies!
~
* FACT: A Bristol Myers Squibb rep made me aware they know doctors today are not finishing their internships… They are being thrown in to practice due to lack of MD’s, etc…
* BE AWARE of undiagnosed ~ misdiagnosed ~ overmedicated ~ malpractice cases to be increased!
* IF you ever get bad (expired, bad shelf storage system, broken pills, etc…) drugs call the drug company 1st! Explain the scenario… Then call your doctor if the drug company is not replacing them… The drug company will think twice in giving the doctor that drug…
~
* FACT: Your Pharmacist is your new best friend… Take your drugs, etc… and sit down with them… They are trained in reactions, dosages, etc… Trust them – they KNOW!
~
* Serum Insulin Level blood test is a “KEY” in knowing if you can lose weight normally…
~ The level must be 11 or less in order for you to lose weight….
~ IF 12 and higher, you will never lose weight…
~
* FYI: The 1st 10-15 lbs is water weight…
~
* PCOS women die at early ages, 40’s through 60’s… Research shows it and due to heart disease or cancer… ~Your life is at stake here!
~
* Most women are misdiagnosed – Most diagnosed years ago with a thyroid disorder had PCOS and/or both…
~
* YOU are not alone… PCOS is a silent epidemic affecting so many women that have it and don’t know it!!!!!! Pass the PCOS word on…
~
* PCOS Ratio Factor – The ratio of luteinizing hormone to follicle stimulating hormone (LH: FSH ratio, a measure of the health of the ovaries. Most pre-menopausal women have a ratio close to 1:1 with FSH values slightly greater than LH. The higher the LH: FSH ratio the greater the likelihood of PCOS. Levels of LH higher than FSH suggests PCOS. High FSH levels suggests the ovary is running out of eggs. Some doctors believe that an LH: FSH greater than 2:1 or 3:1 indicates PCOS.
~
* PCOS is a silent epidemic – Most women have it and don’t know it! Pass the PCOS word on to every woman you know… You will be saving their life or that of someone you don’t know…
~
* Syndrome X is what men are diagnosed with… They may have symptoms like you minus the female specific ones… Men have to demand they get this diagnosis, why, like PCOS, doctors are naive to it…
~ My case: Exhubby has alot of the same symptoms i do… He has yet to be diagnosed with Syndrome X… He can not lose the tummy fat regardless of what he does…
~
* Diagnosed with depression
may be a fatigue problem or hormone imbalance or something else… SYMPTOMS do MATTER!!!! Google your symptoms…
~
* MINERALS:
Have all your minerals checked by a hair sample…Lack of or too much all cause medical conditions! Eat the foods to replenish minerals…
~ FACT – Doctors check blood, which if something shows up in your blood, your body is starting to die inside!
~
* Gastric Bypass
– Think twice! Have your hormones tested first… Have the Serum Insulin Level test … Look at my Symptoms List… If you still have the surgery, there is no quarantee your PCOS will disappear!… Infact, you are warned not to have the surgery because it will screw your hormones up…
~
FYI:
* Medical Records:
Keep track of your symptoms, drugs and actual medical records… Your history is important!
~
* YOU control your treatments with/or without your doctor… I say this because some women choose the natural way… Plus, due to most doctors not knowing much about PCOS, you have to know the treatments available for PCOS… You need to keep records, you know what works or doesn’t… You will know your body from PCOS if you don’t already…
~
* PCOS Lady: I feel if a doctor does not work with you, does not know the numerous treatments for PCOS, does not listen to you, etc… (Your journey will encompass more, hopefully not) … Then i take the stand i am being mistreated medically thereby being hurt by that doctor… That’s against the medical oath every doctor takes! Partial quote: “1st do no harm….”
~
* PCOS research is ongoing… Symptoms are being added continuously… RLS – Restless Leg Syndrome was added abit ago… Rosacea was added before RLS…
