Patient discussion about observing

Q. I had observed that my pain increases with less sleep and poor diet. I had observed that my pain increases with less sleep and poor diet. I tried fasting for half a day and it helped with the pain. But once I fast for the whole day and the pain aggravated. I had also observed that when I eat salads I feel good with reduced pain. So I take them every day and this has definitely helped with the pain. I want to know how come they help with the pain.

A. Any natural diet does wonders and the same can be applied here. You must also avoid all the artificial products and sweeteners. You must also reduce in tea, coffee, chocolates, alcohol, and sodas and over consumption of dairy. You must also reduce sugar in your diet. Try to have a good sleep it is the key to reduce pain.

Q. My wife(53) has elevated CEA and CA19.9 levels - near 150, without any concomitant reason/observation? Comment

A. Hi Bobby3,

The most important question is why were these tests done?
An elevated level may result from many causes, some of them are simple and some are more problematic. IMHO the best thing would be consulting her doctor to consider the need to check-up her alimentary system.

Q. I am observing some change in the nipple of my left breast. Can anyone give information? I am 44 year old women and from some days I am observing some change in the nipple of my left breast. My nipple is drawn inside. My haggard nipple apart from itching burns as well. The size of my left breast is increased. Some bloody discharge from nipple is giving indication that there is something happening wrong. I doubt if it may be a breast cancer. Can anyone give some information?

A. the fact that bloody discharge from the nipple is probably a bad sign is clear. now what you need to do is to go and see a Dr. about it. it can be an infection in the mammary glands, or even Fibrocystic breast disease. so get yourself to a Dr....
