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:
calcium/magnesium
kelp
cod liver oil
flax seed oil
raw apple cider vinegar


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.

A one-way analysis of variance revealed a significant main effect for the LOD being presented to the goalkeepers ([F.sub.(3,27)]=5.62; p = 0.004).
The first examined the unrounded LoD (<2.3 ng/L) rather than the rounded value of <2 ng/L.
Our study considered only a few factors relevant to LOD. Because of time and space limitations in sample selection, fewer first onset LOD samples led to a small sample size in this study, especially in the DWMH variation analysis in LOD and controls.
A relatively good agreement occurs between the variations of the phase and amplitude of MSL and LOD oscillations.
Although the LOD scores for some QTL were increased, the 95% CIs for QTL were not necessarily narrowed sufficiently (e.g., Choldq1 on Chr 1).
The maximum analytical enhancement factors (AEF) for the CV and NBT samples at 0.3 nM concentration (above LOD for both chemicals detected on Al foil) were calculated by (1) above and reported in Table 1.
We also have a better understanding of the layout and distribution of the buildings in Lod. There would be no point in displaying just one part of the villa so the new museum will show both mosaics.
For each of the indications, including lymphoblastic leukemia, myeloid leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and plasma cell myeloma, we asked each laboratory to approximate its LOD for each assay as 0.1%, 0.01%, 0.001%, or other.
"For example, a client asked for a fire extinguisher at LOD 400.
The linked open data information-extraction (LODIE) project focuses on the study of IE models and algorithms able to perform efficient user-centered web-scale learning by exploiting linked open data (LOD).
Strong evidence of linkage, with high LOD and HLOD scores, does not eliminate the possibility of misdiagnosis or heterogeneity but finding false evidence of linkage because of heterogeneity or misdiagnosis is highly unlikely, since any misdiagnosis degrades the linkage signal.
