Testosterone Injection Therapy – Injection

Low testosterone is a common hormonal abnormality in men. The Hypogonadism in Men (HIMS) trial reported that ~39% of men were testosterone deficient. Diagnosis is frequently delayed since many men may note only nonspecific complaints such as fatigue.

Once testosterone deficiency is documented, replacement therapy is begun in symptomatic men. The two most common methods of replacement are intramuscular testosterone (IM) injections or topically .

The IM formulations are oil-based, long acting preparations available in vials as testosterone cypionate or testosterone enanthate at a concentration of 200 mg/ml. Cypionate and enanthate preparations are clinically similar. The most common dosing regimen is 1 cc (200 mg) in the buttocks every two weeks.

Normalization of testosterone levels should be confirmed with blood tests obtained 3-4 weeks after testosterone therapy is begun.

As with all testosterone therapy, clinical benefits (improved sex drive, less fatigue etc.) may take up to 6 weeks to appear.

I draw up the thick consistency testosterone from the vial with a large gauge needle. A smaller needle may be substituted for self-injection. We typically administer the first IM testosterone dose in our office with instruction re proper injection technique and needle disposal. The majority of men self-administer subsequent injections.

Peak testosterone levels are reached 3 days after the injection.

How to Tackle Hookworm in Humans – Hookworms

Hookworms in Humans

Before looking at how gene studies can help to tackle hookworms in humans, here’s a brief overview of the troublesome parasites that are estimated to infect one quarter of the world’s population.

Two species of hookworms generally infect humans, Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus and their route into the human body is through the skin when a person steps on fecal matter that is contaminated with hookworm larvae. Once inside they travel through the vascular system to the lungs, and then it’s onto the trachea where they are swallowed. As they pass down the esophagus and into the digestive system they attach to the walls of the small intestine and mature into adult worms. Here they mate and suck on the blood of their host.

Infection is usually asymptomatic for most of the time, but there may be symptoms such as skin irritation where the hookworms penetrated, asthma-like symptoms when they reach the lungs and gastro problems when the parasites are inside the digestive system. Here they can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss. A person may also appear anaemic as the hookworms feed off the host’s blood.

What Do Hookworms Look Like?

Motor Disabilities Caused By Car Accidents – Muscle Control

For every 14 seconds, a person is injured by car accidents in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In a recent study, researchers found that majority of traffic-related injuries resulted to paraplegia and quadriplegia, two disabilities which affect the motor skills of people.

Paraplegia Caused by Car Accidents

In most cases of car accidents, victims sustained injuries which may result to paraplegia because of trauma from hitting a hard object or from the crushing force of the collision.

In this type of disability, a certain part of the spinal cord is injured, thus affecting the muscles and the peripheral nervous system.

According to doctors, paraplegia affects the lower extremities of people that may prevent them to walk. In serious cases, some victims also suffer from urinary and fecal incontinence.

Paraplegia does not only affect the basic activities of people. This disability also makes them vulnerable to certain illnesses and medical complications such as pneumonia, thrombosis or the formation of blood clot, and pressure sores.

Quadriplegia Caused by Car Crash

This is another common disability which is caused by car accidents. In this condition, people lose their inability to move both of their hands and feet. In serious cases, patients also lose their sensation on their limbs.

Usually, quadriplegia is caused by damage to the spinal cord or brain. The affected area and the severity of the injury will determine if a patient will lose the total function of his four limbs or suffer partial loss of sensation and muscle control to these parts.

Meanwhile, some patients who are suffering from quadriplegia can still move their arms and only their fingers would lose motor functions and sensation.

According to a recent study, a huge percent of quadriplegia is caused by car accidents. Other causes of this disability are slip and fall accidents and sports-related injuries.

Doctors said that most patients with quadriplegia are vulnerable to osteoporosis, bone fractures, pressure sores, thrombosis, cardiovascular diseases, and respiratory ailments.

Patients also suffer from loss of muscle control and sensation in all four limbs. In addition, it is common for quadriplegic people to feel numbness and piercing pain and experience difficulty in breathing.

In severe cases, patients may lose their digestive and sexual functions and ability to control their urinary and bowel movement.

Disability and Legal Ramifications

In case the disability is caused by reckless drivers, victims have the legal ground to file personal injury claims to recover loss of wages, diminished or complete loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, and emotional trauma.

According to Los Angeles lawyers, disabled victims usually get higher compensation from the reckless party to compensate the damages. With a bigger monetary award, the negligent individual will also be discouraged from committing again his reckless action.

Pericardial Mesothelioma – Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, Prognosis & Basic Facts For You To Know – Cells Divide

Pericardial mesothelioma accounts for about half of all pericardial tumors and is extremely rare. This cancer accounts for about 6% of all mesothelioma cases, these tumors are typically diffused and tend to cover the whole heart.

Pericardial mesothelioma affects the pericardium which is the membrane made up of mesothelial cells that surrounds and protects the heart. This membrane has two layers:

A} an outer layer called parietal pericardium

B} an inner layer called the visceral pericardium {epicardium}


Unlike in the case of pleural mesothelioma, there is no clear link between this cancer and exposure to asbestos fibers, but a number of patients with pericardial mesothelioma have a history of exposure to asbestos.

Some schools of thought believe that it is the inhaled asbestos fibers in the lungs that travel via blood from the lungs to the heart, although this theory is not supported by conclusive evidence.

When get lodged in the pericardium, the body is unable to excrete the asbestos fibers and they remain stuck in the pericardium. These fibers over a long period of time cause the pericardial cells to undergo changes that result into cancerous transformation.<br>

The <a rel="wpi" target="_blank" title="Watch Cancer Cells Scurrying Over The Surface Of A …" href="http://gizmodo.com/watch-cancer-cells-scurrying-over-the-surface-of-a-micr-1623183040">cancer cells</a> divide without control and they eventually lead to the thickening of the pericardial membranes eventually causing development of the tumors. These changes lead to the accumulation of fluids in between the two layers which combined with the thickening of these layers result in the compression of the heart.<br>


Most of the symptoms are caused by the accumulation of fluids and the thickening of the pericardial layer. The common symptoms are:<br>

A) Heart palpitations or irregular pulse (arrhythmia)<br>

B) Chest pain<br>

C) Murmurs ( sounds)<br>

D) Cough<br>

E) Dyspnoea (shortness of breath)<br>

F) Fatigue<br>

H) Fever or night sweats<br>

I) Orthopnoea (breathlessness on lying down)<br>

These symptoms are not specific for the cancer, making the clinical diagnosis very difficult.<br>


After getting a clinical diagnosis a series of tests can be done to locate the cancer and identify the cancer cells.<br>

-MRI, Magnetic Resonance Imaging<br>

This is useful in assessing and determining the extent of development of the cancer.<br>


This involves the removal of pericardium tissue or fluid for laboratory test to confirm the presence of mesothelioma cells.<br>

-Chest x-ray<br>

This helps to identify the tumor, there is a characteristic shape of the heart on the x-ray film when there is a tumor of the pericardium.<br>

-Chest CT scan<br>

This also helps to identify the tumor.<br>


Pericardial mesothelioma patients are not usually suitable for surgery, except in rare cases where the cancer is diagnosed very early and surgery may be done to remove small localized tumors.<br>

This type of surgery is very risky because of the proximity of the heart.<br>

Palliative treatment is often the only option for treating pericardial mesothelioma, this type of treatment is aimed at improving the patient's quality of life and reducing the severity of symptoms caused by the accumulation of fluid in the pericardium.<br>

Fine needle aspiration may be done to drain the accumulated fluid surrounding the heart. Radiotherapy could also be used to shrink the tumor to alleviate the symptoms caused by the compression of the heart by the accumulating fluid. The proximity of the heart and lungs however makes this a very risky procedure.<br>


The prognosis of this type of mesothelioma is very poor, about 50 -60% of all cases die within 6 months of diagnosis. Occasionally few patients survive for longer periods following treatment with partial surgical resection and radiotherapy.

Natural Gas Processing Industry 2013 Analysis & 2017 Forecasts New Research Report at RnRMarketResearch.com – Gas Processing

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 16, 2013

Roughly 46% of global natural gas processing capacity is located in the Americas. This translates to 61.2 trillion cubic feet (tcf) on an annual basis or 167.7 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d). This super-region also leads in terms of the number of active natural gas processing plants globally with 1,449, compared to 206 in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and 138 active plants in the Asia-Pacific region.

There are many reasons for the large concentration of natural gas processing plants in the Americas, including the large number of natural gas pipelines in the super-region; the large number of natural gas production fields; the large number of independent operators and midstream companies working in the super-region; and a regulatory culture that allows private companies to build their own infrastructure.

Complete report available @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/natural-gas-processing-outlook-2013-2017-most-capacity-growth-will-come-from-the-emea-market-report.html .

Natural gas processing has been a part of the business from its earliest days as a way to purify the gas for residential, utility, commercial and industrial usage as well as to strip out high-value Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) including ethane, propane, butane, pentane and hexane and also condensates. The NGLs, in particular, are the chief feedstock for most of the world’s petrochemical industry and are considered a high-value commodity wherever they are produced. Condensates, which are produced along with natural gas from the same well, are very light, low sulfur crude oil streams that are stripped out by natural gas processing plants.

The advent of natural gas produced from shale formations in the US through the use of hydraulic fracturing has led to a superabundance of new natural gas production and the need for more natural gas processing capacity to be utilized and built. This “wet” gas is saturated with NGLs so natural gas processing plants have been working overtime to strip out the higher-value NGLs. So much natural gas processing has gone on in the US over the last few years, in fact, that prices for ethane and propane at prime market hubs Mont Belvieu, Texas and Conway, Kansas have fallen to their lowest levels in many years.

While low prices on ethane and propane do not sound good for producers, they have provided an economic incentive for petrochemical producers to construct plants in the US and/or to ramp up operations in the Americas to take advantage of the lower-priced feedstock. With the current shale-produced natural gas production forecast showing this boom likely to last at least another forty years, it would seem to be a wise investment to continue to process natural gas for the petrochemical industry in this region.

After the Americas, EMEA has the second largest active gas processing capacity at 56.8 tcf’ or 155.6 bcf/d. The Asia-Pacific region has the least amount of active gas processing capacity at 15.1 tcf, or 41.4 bcf/d.

The US has the highest active natural capacity of all the countries in the Americas super-region, at 32 tcf, (or 87.7 bcf/d) on an annualized basis.

In EMEA, Iran has the largest installed base of active natural gas processing capacity at 11.2 tcf, or 30.7 bcf/d. In the Asia-Pacific region, China has the largest base of installed capacity, at 2.7 tcf, or 7.4 bcf/d. The Most New Capacity Additions Will Be Built in EMEA between 2013 and 2017

Among the three super-regions, EMEA plans to build the most new capacity between 2013-2017 at 10.1 tcf, or 27.7 bcf/d. Most of this capacity will be centered in Iran and Saudi Arabia. The other supper-regions will also see capacity increases but not at the same scale as will be seen in the EMEA. The Americas supper-region will build 4.4 tcf, or 12.1 bcf/d, of new capacity, while the Asia-Pacific region will construct 2.4 tcf (6.6 bcf/d) of new capacity.

In EMEA, Iran and Saudi Arabia will account for around 43% of the planned capacity additions. In the Americas, the US accounts for over 80% of the region’s planned capacity addition, while in the Asia-Pacific region, Turkmenistan will add the most new capacity at 635.4 bcf by 2017, accounting for around 27% of the region’s total.

National Iranian Gas Company Is the Largest Natural Gas Processing Plant Operator Globally. National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) operates the most active gas processing capacity among all operators worldwide. NIGC’s total capacity is 7.9 tcf, or 21.6 bcf/d, which accounts for 5.9% of the global total. Gazprom and Saudi Aramco have the second and third-highest capacities.

Home Remedies for STDs – Transmitted Diseases

Sexually transmitted diseases, as the name suggests, spread from one individual to another through intimate sexual contact. Getting diagnosed with an STD can cause a lot of embarrassment to individuals. These diseases can be treated with the use of proper medication. Some people also turn to home remedies to further ease the suffering. Though home treatment alone cannot completely cure any STD, it can go a long way in helping the sufferer deal with the pain. Home treatment, which implies incorporating a few lifestyle and dietary changes, and making use of natural herbs, can be used for STDs such as gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, and genital herpes. Let us take a deeper look at some such remedies.

Please note: The herbal treatments and dietary modifications listed below can be effective only if you follow them in conjunction with the prescribed medication as recommended by your doctor. They can only alleviate the painful ulcers and lesions these infections cause, and help you acquire a healthier immune system, not cure the disease. Herbs should not be consumed without the guidance of a health care provider. If you are allergic to any of the herbs or ingredients listed below, do not consume or use them.

Herbal Remedies

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera, with its strong medicinal properties, is said to be a powerful healing agent against scars and wounds left by syphilis. Apply a thick layer of gel to the wounds. Let it air dry. Apply twice daily till you see the scabs falling away and you get cured. Keep in mind that the gel should not be applied on an open sore and always wear gloves during the application to prevent further spread of the disease.

Tea Tree Oil

With its antibacterial properties, tea tree oil is another powerful remedy for soothing . It can be used to ease the pain caused by chancroid and syphilis among other diseases. Applying this oil on the infected area with the help of a clean cotton ball can bring a lot of relief. You need to follow this mode of treatment for at least a few weeks before the infection goes away. Another method is to add a few drops of this essential oil to your daily bath to ease the painful symptoms. Women can apply very light vaginal douche of tea tree oil to soothe the discomfort from chlamydia, trichomoniasis, and syphilis.


The roots of this medicinal shrub, specifically of the species Anthocleista djalonensis, can be used to treat a variety of STDs. Thoroughly wash the roots and boil them in water for an hour. One glass of this concoction, daily, for a couple of months, can bring down the pain caused by syphilis and other diseases. If roots are not available, boil pieces of the bark and leaves. The fruits of the tree, if eaten raw, can also help.


Native to Latin America, this root is used to combat STDs not just because of its antibacterial properties, but also because it helps build a stronger immune system which is very important to ward off potential diseases. Used in a similar fashion to anthocleista, boiling the roots, bark, and leaves of the tree and drinking the concoction, or consuming the fruits of the tree all help to fight STDs, especially gonorrhea and syphilis.

Other herbs used to treat sexually transmitted diseases are Japanese privet, yellow thistle, astragalus, ginseng, Bupleurum chinense, woad root, and burdock root. Concoctions made from roots and leaves of these shrubs have proven helpful in treating the ulcers caused by syphilis, chancroid, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis.

Home Treatments

Baking Soda/Cornstarch

Sprinkling baking soda or cornstarch on the sores and ulcers caused by syphilis and genital herpes can reduce the inflammation and itching.


Tea contains tannic acid, which is known to bring relief to genital tissues. Brew a black tea bag, cool it, and place it on the areas around the genitals which have been inflamed with sores, especially in the case of and genital warts. Discard the used tea bag after a few minutes.


Ice cubes, crushed and wrapped in a plastic bag and applied to sores and inflamed genitals will bring instant relief from pain in the case of genital herpes and warts. This can be done several times during the day. Although the safest method, take care not to overdo it, as prolonged exposure to ice may harm the tissues.

Lemon Juice/Vinegar

Dabbing genital warts with cotton balls dipped in lemon juice or vinegar will have an astringent effect on them, providing relief from pain.

Dietary Changes


A disadvantage of antibiotics is that they also kill the good bacteria along with the harmful ones. Yogurt, with its probiotic properties, is conducive for the growth of good bacteria in the body that help in digestion. Yogurt contains lactic acid bacteria and other live microorganisms which are probiotic in nature. Eating yogurt on a daily basis will ensure that the body does not lose its share of the good bacteria, which can aid digestion, keep you healthy and help you fight diseases better.


Because of its powerful antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, chew a clove of raw garlic every day to stave off the buildup of bacteria and other pathogens which in turn reduces the risk of developing sexually transmitted diseases.


A daily dose of multivitamins, especially those enriched with folic acid, zinc, and vitamins B, C, E, and K is essential for a healthy body. All these vitamins and minerals help in the faster recovery of the body from any disease.

Apart from these, drinking lots of water which will flush out toxins, and eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables will keep you healthy, boost your immune system, and help keep diseases at bay. Additionally, it is imperative that you maintain strict personal hygiene, avoid all contact with an infected partner, and wash and sanitize all clothes and bedding items on a regular basis to check further infection.

Sexually transmitted diseases cannot be cured without prescribed antibiotics and antiviral drugs, and should be treated as soon as they are detected. If left untreated, they can aggravate and cause serious complications, which can include various types of cancers like penile or cervical cancer, infertility in women, severe pelvic pain, arthritis, and can even be passed from a mother to her unborn child, which can also lead to birth abnormalities. Most STDs are asymptomatic in their early stages, hence it is essential that you screen yourself to avoid further complications. Prevent getting infected from sexually transmitted diseases by not having multiple sexual partners, and always using condoms. Vaccinations are available for HPV (human papillomavirus) and hepatitis B. Be responsible towards your partner. Inform them if you have had multiple partners before, or have had or are suffering from an STD. In case you are currently suffering from any such disease, it is best to abstain from any sexual activity for the sake of yours and your partner’s health, and to check further spread. In short, practice safe sex and remain faithful to your partner, which will cut back the risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease.

Stem Cells Transplantation Therapy For Renal Failure – Cells Transplantation

Stem cell plays an more and more important role in treating various kinds of diseases, and this is due to its powerful self replication, self-proliferation and continuously differentiation abilities. Renal failure refers to the late stage of the progressive loss of renal function. and clinical practices have proven that stem cells transplantation therapy for renal failure had a remarkable curative effect.

Stem cell transplantation therapy for chronic and acute renal failure can achieve remarkable curative effects. After the entering into the body, these stem cells will restore damaged renal function and as a result inhibit the fibrosis progression, reduce blood creatinine concentration and nephritic ischemia. Through stem , we can not only maximally repair damaged renal cells, normalize hypertension but also alleviate symptoms like edema, proteinuria and occult blood. For some patients, they can reduce the frequency of dialysis or even get away from the dependence on dialysis

Stem cell transplantation therapy is also workable for treating Uremia. as a subsidiary treatment, stem cell transplantation can maximally restore damaged renal cells, protect these remained renal cells, which provides a favorable environment for the restoration of renal functions. In addition, stem cell transplantation therapy has a remarkable curative effect in alleviating other complications like acid-base imbalance, fluids metabolism imbalance and endocrine imbalance, and as a result relieve the patients of symptoms like vomiting, insomnia and other cardiovascular diseases.

The prospect of stem cell transplantation

Stem cell transplantation therapy has become a milestone in the exploration of kidney disease treatment, and has already gained unprecedented attentions world widely. It belongs to one of the most high-tech therapies for kidney problems. So far, many patients of kidney diseases have benefited from receiving this method in our hospital, with getting away from the dependence on dialysis and enjoying an improved living standard.

From the above we can see that stem can treat kidney failure very effectively. The following daily care of patients with kidney failure is also very important.

1. Diet: limit the intake of protein, alleviating the symptoms of kidney failure. Provide adequate calorie to satisfy the loss of protein.

2. Alleviate the swelling: calculate your weight everyday in a certain time. Record the intake volume and the output volume and strictly control your intake of water.

3. Have a good rest: patients with kidney failure should avoid overwork.

4. Prevent infection: patients should not often go to public places. Keep the air in your room clean.

5. Guidance out of hospital: have regular check of kidney function and electrolyte. Exactly record the urine volume everyday.

Stem cell therapy can do great efficacy for kidney failure. A lot of patients have gotten rid of dialysis after this therapy. It will be the dominant therapy of kidney failure in the near future.

What Are the Best Lab Tests for Immune System Function? – Blood Cells

Complete Blood Count

A complete blood count can give your doctor a good indication of how your immune system is functioning. Your immune system protects you from infections and disease-causing organisms as well as any foreign materials which may enter your body.

Your body contains five different types of white which respond to stresses on your immune system. A review of the number and types of white blood cells found in a sample can provide information regarding the presence of a disease. Your doctor will use a range to determine if your complete is normal. If your numbers fall outside of this range, she can make an assessment about how your immune system is functioning.

For example, a high neutrophil count might indicate that you have a bacterial infection. In this case, your immune system is responding properly. A high eosinophil count can result from an autoimmune disorder which would show that your immune system is responding inappropriately to some type of stimulus.

Your doctor may also look at the lymphocyte percentage in your blood. Lymphocytes make antibodies and attack germs, depending upon the type. Again, your doctor will use a range to determine if your sample is normal. Your lymphocytes should make up between 20 and 40 percent of your entire white blood cell count.

Immunoglobulin Tests

A measurement of quantitative immunoglobulin levels in the blood serum gives your doctor a summary of your body’s immunoglobulin function. Immunoglobulins are antibodies synthesized by your body’s plasma cells. Abnormalities in immunoglobulin levels can indicate specific problems with your immune system.

Your doctor will likely order a test for gliadin IgG and gliadin IgA if you are showing symptoms of gluten intolerance or celiac disease such as gastrointestinal distress and weight loss. When these immunoglobulins are detected in your blood, it means that your body is fighting some foreign material in your body. In this case, your body is attacking the cells of your small intestine in response to the present of gluten in your diet.

Complement Assay

What are the best lab tests for immune system function? The complement assay looks at the activity of your nine major complement proteins as an indication of immune function. Your doctor can also perform specific protein tests to determine the presence of disease.

Like a complete blood count, abnormalities in protein levels can be diagnostic. For example, your doctor may order a test for the C3 and C4 proteins if you are experiencing symptoms of lupus erythematosus such as the classic butterfly skin rash on your cheeks or joint pain. It may also be used to monitor your pre-existing condition.

A determination of what are the best lab tests for immune system function depends upon your symptoms as well as your medical and family history. In any case, a simple blood test is a non-invasive way for your doctor to accurately diagnose and begin treatment for health conditions.
