I let an abcessed tooth go untreated for about six months and during that time i had an exam for a life insurance policy. The blood test revealed that I was having liver function problems, everything on the test was perfectly normal except my ast and alt levels were really high. Could that be because the infection had gotten into my body?

Not just the tooth but infection on any part of the body will surely lead to changes in antigen- antibody levels. The retained infectious tooth needs to be treated as soon as possible and you need to start with antibiotics. Based on the extent of the damage either a root canal treatment, apicoectomy or extraction maybe needed. ...

I have been diagnosed with IBS a little over 10 years ago by a gasterenterologist. They did the colonoscopy and determined that it was IBS (diarrhea only for me), but I have not been back since due to financial hardship. I have been experiencing some pain, bloating, gas, unusual bowel movements for me - constipation, and unusual looking feces. It has at times looked to be long and thin which is quite abnormal. I have been a vegetarian for 18 years but for the last 8 months have been vegan. These symptoms have not come on until about 2 months ago, however. If anything, I am eating a lot more fruits, vegetables and fiber, which should make me more regular and NOT constipated (I do not eat any dairy or eggs - nothing from animals at all). I used to have to take 3-4 Immodim a day before going to work just to function at my job, but recently, I have not been taking any of it and still have trouble going to the bathroom. I am concerned that this may be something serious. I have read everything I can about these symptoms and have seen that it could be a sign of colon or rectal cancer. I am not an alarmist, but am interested to know if I should be seeking medical attention immediately. Thoughts? Thank you. Rebecca

dear rebecca, pleased to know how keen you are with your health (many people are sooooo careless). As for your IBS, it is a wise idea to undergo a colonoscopy once every year. Cancer or colon or rectum is very rare and there are early signs of it like a polyp which can be easily diagnosed and removed by colonoscopy. so if you really need to be cautious, you have to underdo a colonoscopy once every year. Take care. www. pilesfreedom. com ...

What are the risks associated with taking the recreational drug Molly (MDMA, ecstasy-like capsules) with a cardiac pacemaker implanted for congenital heart block?

Contraindicated! Pacemaker controls heart rate and rhythm, does whatever it can do to keep regular, normal heartbeat. Any recrational drug act on heart rate by different mechanisms (for example ecstasy dilate veins and less blood goes to heart and heart needs to work faster to pump enough blood for body), so it does absolutely opposite thing, that of course will act on pacemaker's work. Pacemaker tries to correct "mistakes" in the heart, Molly in contrary will make more and more mistakes and pac ...
