Hi, my name is Kris and am I received a call from my Primary Care Physician's Office this morning advising my Glucose and A1C levels were high suggesting I am a diabetic. I currently take a Tysabri infusion once every 4 weeks and have done so since 2008. I've also taken Avonex, Mexitrate, Rebiff and Copaxone. In addition to the drugs mentioned above, I also take Atorvastic (Lipitor Generic, 20 mg) for high cholesterol, a general vitamin, flaxseed oil and Vitamin D. Previously when taking a high dose of Lipitor (80 mg) plus Tysabri, it caused my liver counts to go up. Thus my doctor took me off statins completely. Is it possible, since I've been on Tysabri for a long that it is affecting how my system handles Glucose/sugars-A1C?
Hello, I started taking humira for Crohns disease 6 months ago. I am 37 years old. I started, among other symptoms noticing a sadness creep in without a reason to be sad about 3 months ago. I am now in a severe depression and want to stop taking humira as I honestly think it is the cause. The medical profession do not agree that depression is a side effect of humira. I would like your thoughts or suggestions please. Thank you
I have no known food allergies but just experienced upper lip swelling that resolved but now it is my lower lip and a rash on hands. Began while eating pizza with a beer. Been on the infusions since this past November.
Attempting to decide whether or not to have the implant removed. It's caused more personal strife than good, and I would like to know if there are any known cases of similar symptoms. Because vein issues are a prominent symtom, hemorrhoids don't seem very far from the mark.
