Extractions: Lakeview Medical Center's Rheumatology Department treats patients who are experiencing problems related to the muscular, connective tissue, or skeletal systems. These conditions include auto-immune diseases such as Osteoarthritis, Systemic Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Sarcoidoisis, as well as gout, joint pain and disease, bursitis, tendonitis, back pain, osteoporosis and scleroderma. The Rhuematologists see patients in our Churchland, Franklin and Suffolk location.

Iritis Non infectious causes like eye injury, sarcoidoisis, Ankylosing Spondylitis,Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis etc. How do I know it is Iritis? http://www.members.tripod.com/manisha_b/Iris/iritis.htm
Extractions: Iris Anatomy I ritis Iritis is the inflammation of the iris. If this is associated with inflammation of the choroid, it is called as uveitis (pronounced as you-v-i-tis). Many times retina also gets infected, termed as chorio-retinitis (Pronounced as ko-rio -retinitis) Causes Infections like Tuberculosis, Leprosy, Herpes virus infection, AIDS, Toxoplasmosis etc. Non- infectious causes like eye injury, Sarcoidoisis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis etc. How do I know it is Iritis? Besides redness, there will be pain in the eye, watering, photophobia (inability to withstand day-light), decreased vision . This tells you that it is not likely to be just Conjunctivitis. To distinguish it from glaucoma, you will have to go to an eye-doctor and get your eye examined. He will take the eye pressure, examine you on the slit-lamp and then will make the diagnosis. Tests are required to know the cause so, treatment can be given accordingly.

Folic Acid - Iridis Encyclopedia methotrexate is used to treat a wide variety of noncancerous diseases such asrheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, asthma, sarcoidoisis , primary biliary http://www.iridis.com/Folate
Extractions: Folic acid (the anion form is called folate ) is a B-complex vitamin (once called vitamin M ) that is important in preventing neural tube defects (NTDs) in the developing human fetus. Since the discovery of the link between insufficient folic acid and NTDs, governments and health organisations worldwide have made recommendations concerning folic acid supplementation for women intending to become pregnant . For example, the United States Public Health Service (see the URL given at page foot) recommends an extra 0.4mg/day, which can be taken as a pill. However, many researchers believe that supplementation in this way can never work effectively enough since not all pregnancies are planned and not all women will comply with the recommendation. This has led to the introduction in many countries of fortification , where folic acid is added to flour with the intention of everyone benefiting from the associated raise in blood folate levels. This is not uncontroversial, with issues having been raised concerning individual liberty, and the masking effect of folate fortification on B12 deficiency or pernicious anaemia . However, most North and South American countries now fortify their flour, along with a number of Middle Eastern countries and Indonesia. Mongolia and a number of ex-Soviet republics are amongst those having widespread voluntary fortification; about five more countries (including Morocco, the first African country) have agreed but not yet implemented fortification. The UK has recently decided not to fortify, mainly because of the B12 concern; indeed, no EU country has yet fortified.

Extractions: TISSUE INJURY LAB These vacuoles consist of triglyceride predominantly and reflect either increased fatty acid synthesis (protein malnutrition), increased delivery (obesity, peripheral lipolysis) or decreased processing due to cell injury (alcohol [most common cause in industrialized societies], other toxins). Alcohol used to dehydrate sections (so that paraffin can be infused) extracts lipids. Also fat does not stain with the hematoxylin (nucleic acids) or eosin (protein) dyes used to make cells visible. Other lipids (cholesterol and cholesterol esters in atherosclerotic plaques [see slide 12], lipids ingested by phagocytic cells); glycogen (accumulates in many cells when glucose or glycogen metabolism is defective, e.g. Diabetes mellitus); some "mucins". Sometimes the appearance of deposit provides clue to contents- triglycerides accumulate in round vacuoles, cholesterol and its esters form crystals which appear as "clefts" in routine sections, glycogen deposits have less defined "vacuoles" than lipids. Tissues can also be stained with dyes that react with specific substances such as Oil red-O or Sudan black for lipids and the periodic acid Schiff (PAS) reaction for polysaccharides such as glycogen. The appearance in routine tissue sections and the reactivity with selective dyes are useful for the general categorization of deposits.

Extractions: OVERSEAS (EUROPE) MEDICAL SCREENING INTRODUCTION For several years, the medical/social work screening of CF members posted to Europe, as well as their dependants', has caused significant difficulties. Even if the majority of these members and their family are reasonably healthy and do not require special care, the few of them who do inevitably generate major problems for CFMS personnel and administrative authorities who are responsible for them overseas. Those CF members and their family who are allowed to go overseas in spite of important contraindications are often deeply disappointed. They find that what should have been a uniquely pleasant overseas experience has become a nightmare because the types of services they were expecting are not available in the new location, or at least not as easily available as in Canada. To prevent these unfortunate situations, the following guidelines and contact numbers are provided to CFMS personnel to help them better determine who should, and who should not, be considered fit for a posting to Europe. GUIDELINES Recommendations CFH(E) Lahr and CFB Baden These two units have closed more than 7 years ago.
