How will the patient transfer the stem cells?
The transmission of the cells of the dispenser is similar to a blood transfusion, intravenous. The transplanted stem cells are distributed in the body through the bloodstream and lodge themselves into the bone cavities of the patient. There, they begin to form new, healthy blood cells. During the first two to four weeks after transplantation, the patient remains because of the risk of infection in the transplant unit. After the growth of new blood cells, it can lead to a rejection the transplanted stem cells against the patient come
( graft-versus-host disease ), Which must be treated with medication.
What are the first signs of the success of stem cell transplantation?
After about two to four weeks, there are preliminary indications that the new stem cells do their job and make healthy blood cells. This time is shorter after a stimulated peripheral stem cell transplantation, in contrast to bone marrow collection.
The review is based on the change in the number of cells present in the blood. If a steady increase in white and red blood cells and platelets is detected, the chance increases to a second life for the patient.
What complications can occur in patients?
Complications during the preparation phase are most commonly known side effects of chemotherapy and / or total body irradiation such as nausea and vomiting. During the initial period after transplantation, there is generally an increased risk of infection because the patient's immune system is severely weakened by the preparatory phase and builds up only slowly. Unfortunately, relapses can occur because of circumstances not all cancer cells have been destroyed. That is, there may for re-outbreak even after the transplantation of leukemia anytime. After transplantation, but it may also happen that the new stem cells are not tolerated by the body tissue of the patient and then it comes to a reverse rejection - a very serious complication (see GvHD ). Should not increase the donor stem cells or there is a relapse, the donor will be asked if he is willing to further stem cell donation.
With the donor's stem cells can be transmitted diseases?
By carefully completing the health questionnaire and a comprehensive health check-up prior to the stem cell donation, we can exclude it. However, it may come from the patient's body, despite the elaborate tissue typing to reverse rejection of the stem cells (GVHD). These reactions vary greatly from falling and can be treated with medication. GVHD has nothing to do with the fact that the stem cells of the donor were not in order. Rather, all factors are not explored, leading to GVHD. In addition, these rejections are also aware tolerated by the doctors, as they also fight any remaining leukemia cells located in the body (anti-leukemia effect).
How is the patient when he is back home?
Many patients can lead an almost normal life after being released from the hospital. However, first they have to follow some rules. Thus, the patient should stay away from, for example, larger crowds, to avoid them emanating increased risk of infection. In some patients there will be long-lasting rejection reactions such as skin rashes, hair loss or reduced saliva and tear production.
I tried it for about a year.2010-01-28 08:04:00 by murality
And that year SUCKED.
Metformin didn't do a thing for me except make me sick and make me need to be near a bathroom at all times. I didn't even lose a pound either!
My doc said that it doesn't work as well for "thin PCOSers".
But I hear stories that it does help some women when they have insulin resistance. I just don't know any personally.
However, if you want to try a more natural approach to treat your testosterone levels, there is an herb called Saw Palmetto. It is in the men's section of vitamins, and is used to reduce testosterone levels, which cause hair loss in men
