with cerebellar issues you "fall towards" the side of the lesion
why not hep B? i guess another whats the better answer ones... Just rem reading that it was more common with aids pts.. anyone have an idea about this?
Yes, I think CNS lymphoma as an AIDS defining illness wins the day.
My thought was since SHE has AIDS it is most likely from IVDA, which has a high risk of HBV that could go undiagnosed for a long time. at 32, that might not be long enough to have HBV and get HCC (but with no immune system...?)
God damn this is such BULLSHIT...
My thought process, usually wrong all the time, was that HBV (IVDU) can occur to anyone. Acute hepatitis to Chronic occurs when HBV incorporates its DNA into host and releases mutagenic proteins. This is regardless of immunosuppresion. Primary CNS Lymphoma reappears primarily when you are immunosuppressed (organ transplant, immunodeficiency, HIV/AIDS).
Hep C is far more likely to become HCC than hep B
Even if you were thinking skin cancer is more common, that's only true for basal cell and squamous. Melanoma is rare. EBV much more likely in aids patient. Even H pylori was a better answer.
FA2020 p590 lists all the stuff that causes different potassium shifts
This is correct but a lot going on. Catecholamines directly stimulate Na/K atpase just like insulin does.
Even if they weigh the same, won't their different body compositions give different volumes of distribution? Would that change the loading dose?
@confidenceinterval, the loading dose wouldnt change, the maintenance dose would.
I guessed this one cause men have a higher hemoglobin than women.
High levels of testosterone will result in amenorrhea. I guessed that since she's not menstruating she will not be losing blood and therefore hemoglobin. Therefore her hemoglobin levels will be higher than expected.
It kinda makes sense knowing testosterone causes catabolism so I was in between Alkaline phosphatase and hemoglobin...
isn't testosterone anabolic?
ALK phosph is indicative of osteoclast activity. Testosterone keeps male bones strong just like estrogen does for women. Testosterone builds bone (osteoblast activity) therefore we would not see a rise in ALK phos
