Patient discussion about ice

Q. could i be allergic to ice cream? I've been having stomach aches and diarrhea's lately. and it usually comes after eating ice cream. i love ice cream - it'll be a shame if I'll have to stop eating it...

A. I don't know about being allergic to ice cream, but maybe you are Lactose intolerant? i have the same problem - love ice cream, can't digest it. BUT - don't worry! you don't have to stop eating ice cream! all you have to do is take a pill that contains the enzyme that requires to digest milk half an hour before you eat and it'll be O.K! welcome to the family:)

Q. Do you think the sugar in the ice cream might have caused my fibromyalgia? I have had fibromyalgia for 14 years. For many years I ate lots of ice cream. Recently I have begun breaking out in a rash if I eat anything sweet. Do you know why sugar might cause me to break out? Do you think the sugar in the ice cream might have caused my fibromyalgia?

A. Yes, Even Bryers ice cream makes me hurt. I do much better if I avoid highly processed foods. Some nutritionals that I have found to be highly effective in keeping me pain free are:

Q. How does ice help a sprained ankle or other injury? While I exercise I often get sprain. I have seen many times that ice is used as a first aid for sprains. How does ice help a sprained ankle or other injury?

A. it does two helpful things- lower the pain (cold can do that) and prevent swelling. the swelling is a body normal reaction that protects the area that was injured. but we would like to avoid it because it'll strain us.

There have been seven times when no ice formation was seen, most recently in 2006.
FAA suits wrote that an enforcement action will be based on "whether the pilot's pre-flight planning took into account the possibility of ice formation, alternative courses of action to avoid known icing conditions, and if ice is actually formed on the aircraft, what steps were taken by the pilot to exit those conditions.
Lam says that ice formation and growth in fuel are similar to frost formation and growth in the atmosphere, which may open up the possibility of useful knowledge transfer from the world of atmospheric physics.
In contrast, the soft coral Alcyonium antarcticum, spines of the urchin Sterechinus neumayeri, and the sponge Mycale acemta seldom initiated ice formation on tissue, and were statistically indistinguishable from plain seawater in a clean polypropylene beaker (which always froze from the top and never grew ice on submerged surfaces).
The potential for coatings that can prevent or slow down ice formation is therefore enormous," comments Achim Stankowiak, head of Application Engineering & Aviation with Clariant.
Ice formation on adjacent structures is a phenomenon that has been identified in very cold climates where sidewall venting is used for two story residential buildings spaced closely together.
As a result of warmer temperatures, sea ice between Victoria Island and the mainland now forms 8-10 days later than it did in 1982, raising questions about the impact of delayed ice formation on the ecology of the herd.

Ice formation on aircraft can disrupt the smooth flow of air over the wings and prevent the aircraft from taking off or decrease the pilot's ability to maintain control of the aircraft.
This includes, for example, cases of very high tides, strong winds, high waves or ice formation, which some ministers had also demanded at the Transport Council.
The aircraft, operated by US carrier Murray Air on the Shannon-Doha route, had been climbing through 900ft in conditions "probably conducive" to engine ice formation, says the Irish Air Accident Investigation Unit.
