One of heparin’s primary manufacturers, Baxter International, had begun monitoring reports of adverse reactions in December, and stopped producing multiple-dose heparin vials on Feb. 11 after four deaths were reported. To date, over 800 cases of adverse effects have been reported, including 21 deaths. A large-scale recall of the product was not ordered, as the FDA feared problems associated with a sudden shortage. Baxter supplies approximately half of the heparin used in the U.S.
One fact that might surprise many of you is that if you were to take a hard tumble, such as falling off of a ladder or tripping and falling like a limp sack of potatoes, there is at least a small chance that a blood clot could form within seconds and trigger a heart attack or stroke. So it just makes good sense to be preventative when talking about blood clots.
Spontaneous abortion (SAB) or miscarriage is the term used for a pregnancy that ends on it’s own, within the first 20 weeks of gestation. Often the medical name spontaneous abortion (SAB) gives many women a negative feeling, so throughout this information we will refer to any type of spontaneous abortion or pregnancy loss under 20 weeks as miscarriage.
Foods such as meat, poultry, and fried foods contain high saturated fat. Foods such as margarine, cheese, and butter contain high amounts of trans fat. These foods cause cholesterol to build up in your arteries and small veins in your scalp resulting in less oxygen being delivered to the cell in your body, including the cells on the follicles.
Minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, chromium, iodine, zinc, and magnesium are necessary to maintain healthy hair growth. Mineral deficiency will reduce the chance to regulate the blood circulation that promotes healthy hair growth and thyroid hormones that prevent dry hair and hair loss as well as defects in hair color. Too much iron is toxic to your body. Be sure to talk to your doctor before taking any mineral supplement.
Fortunately, modern medicine already offers medical treatment acute heart attack. Preventive measures have been identified and are now being taught to prevent such an attack from occurring or recurring. Beta blockers are medications used to decrease heart rate and blood pressure. These can be given through an intravenous (IV) line or orally. Oxygen is used via nose plugs or a facemask if a person is having a heart attack. This is useful if breathing is difficult or the amount of oxygen in the blood is low.
Lovenox is often used to treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Lovenox is also used to prevent blood vessel complications in people with certain types of angina (chest pain) or heart attacks. Women who suffer from serious Yaz side effects including a DVT or pulmonary embolism are often on Lovenox injections for a relatively short period of time and then switched to a blood thinner such Coumadin. Women who are prescribed a blood thinner such as Coumadin often take it for 6 to 9 months, however some patients have to be on a blood thinner for the rest of their life.
