- What's the best home remedy for jaundice?
I started out thinking that I had pancreatitis, had all the symptoms, abdominal pain that went all the way thru to the back & inability to digest food (chronic indigestion). I read about keeping the bodys pH better balanced, bought pH test strips (urine) & found I was very acidic. I began eating more alkaline foods, alkalizing my water, and avoiding really acidic foods. Stopped taking my acid reducers because they actually KEPT me more acidic. I noticed that when my body's pH was up (alkaline) the pain was tolerable but when it began to drop (acid) the pain kicked up again. My doctors say they don't necessarily think it's pancreatitis because the ultrasound doesn't show inflammation & my blood test numbers are only slightly elevated. My liver enzymes are also slightly elevated. The doctors don't Seem very concerned. Today, for the first time in 2 months since this whole thing started I noticed I'm jaundiced. What the heck is this?

Last two weeks chronic indigestion, upper chest pressure gas, upset stomach, and occasional dizziness. Read up on Symptom's for both Crestor and Trilipix an I am a poster child for them. I was on Lipitor for about 2 years but facial burning had my MD put me on Crestor. I stopped taking the Crestor 3 days ago and now Trilipix two days - curious how long before the side effects stop. I am also under super amount of job related stress which could be a trigger effect? Thoughts?

- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- Farxiga ? problems, stomach, smell, taste
I have been on Farxiga for 2 months. First, I was on Farxiga 5mg, About 6 weeks ago changed to 10 mg, about same time I noticed my coffee smelled different and bad, kept on a week and asked my wife. Changed coffee brand twice. It got worse, began to taste it. For the last week I can smell it in my food, anything fresh out of microwave. Now I smell it in my bowel movement. I called Doctor earlier in week reported. He wants to wait about a week and call back if persists. I am a diabetic and first few days this helped. Doctor reduced my insulin and got me off glimepiride and my Sugar readings have been higher since such as 175-200. This is my only medicine change close to time period. Please respond with help or if you experience similar problems.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Added estradiol taken orally 5.5 weeks ago*, and gingival hyperplasia began 4 weeks ago. All other meds/vits had been ongoing for a long time before that.
Previously, estradiol was taken vaginally and is "non-systemic", therefore.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Chronic diarrhea with bile, dehydration, weakness, pain at times in upper right side of abdomen
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Recently tapered off of Percocet slowly, but also had the flu at the same time. Used ADvil cold and Sinus, which dried out my sinuses too much. Developed sinus infection that isn't improving. Wondering if the this is a withdrawal symptom, even though I didn't seem to have any of the other w/d symptoms other then fatigue, which could just as well be a result of being ill and as side effect from Augmentin I am taking now.
