Patient discussion about solute


A. Pneumonia is an infectious disease of the lungs, and is caused by various bacteria, viruses or fungal infections. The most common pneumonia is caused by viruses, and the treatment is usually symptomatic
(anti caugh and fever, etc.), however, because there are many bacterias that can cause it as well, you should recommend to your friend to go see a doctor and get some antibiotic medications.

Q. Can you suggest an immediate solution for this, please? My niece is 22 years old. She was very excited about being a single mother. She was staying with her boyfriend when she announced that she was pregnant. About 5 weeks of pregnancy she had a fight with her boyfriend that ended up in him shoving her. She fell violently to the ground. She is complaining of spotting and cramps. I am worried if anything has gone wrong. Can you suggest an immediate solution for this, please?

A. I want to add, that the physical act of violence done to her and the unborn child might have been criminal assault. If she or the unborn child were harmed, she could file charges. There is no excuse for the boyfriend's irresponsible behavior. If she is in any danger from this guy doing this again, she could seek help at a shelter for battered women, or even better staying with someone in her family.

Q. Type 2 Diabetics solution My uncle is suffering from type 2 diabetics and i want to know that is there any permanent solution for type 2 diabities. Very worried about weight loss too. Any one there to give us a permanent solution?

A. Type 2 diabetes is due to improper use of insulin or insulin resistance.

There is a web site given below which provides information on alternative medicines for diabetes. Alternative medicines - ayurveda herbs, homeopathy, yoga and acupressure treatments.

Up to date, there are several approaches to solve such a problem, including the equivalent-stratified medium approach proposed by Fourar [25] and subsequently applied to solute transport in a single rough-walled rock fracture [18], the MIM model which was utilized by Qian [13] to describe solute transport in a filled single fracture, and continuous time random walk (CTRW) approach [26].
This can be done by measuring and comparing the plate heights for a solute at 1 or several flow rates on an affinity column and on an inert control column.
where [V.sup.0.sub.[phi]] and M are the partial molar volume and molar mass of the solute, respectively.
Figure 4 shows the initial and modified interaction energies between the existing internal stress field and the solute hydrogen atom as a function of distance from the core of an edge dislocation.
Freeze concentration assisted by an external force (such as centrifugation) uses the hydraulic structure that exists in the frozen matrix between the ice crystals occluding the solutes. A similar behavior is potentially observed in nature in the frozen structure of the millenary polar ice [25].
There have been a few case reports describing the use of chlorothiazide or hydrochlorothiazide along with low renal solute formula for the management of central diabetes insipidus in infancy as listed in Table 1.
A hypercaloric diet in children with potentially impaired renal function due to therapy with CNIs requires precise determination of the potential renal solute load and the associated fluid requirements.
The values of flow, D, R, [K.sub.d], [lambda] and [P.sub.e], relative to each soil, under 3 different solute concentrations and 2 water treatments, were subjected to analysis of variance and Tukey test at 0.05 probability level to test if there was difference between the means of the treatments, using the software Assistat 7.7
The TDR 100 and CR10X dataloggers were programmed with LoggerNet datalogger-support software (Campbell Scientific Inc., Logan, UT) that recorded water content and bulk EC of the soils at selected intervals - 40, 50 or 60 min depending on the solute and soil types.
