There is no way to know for sure if Left Eye Lopez was HIV positive at the time of her death. There was speculation and rumor when TLC first came out in 1991, because she wore the condom over her Left Eye, and later because of her work with HIV / Safe Sex organizations and charities, along with the reference to HIV/AIDS the video for TLC song Waterfalls which Left Eye Lopez herself wrote. Additional speculation and rumor occurred after her death by car accident in Honduras. This was due primarily because the doctor she went to Central America to visit Dr. Sebi is known for his unsubstantiated claims that he has the 'cure' for AIDS. In addition, the sheer fact that AIDS is the number one killer African-Americans ages 19 to 44 in the United States, in and of itself may cause speculation, and fuel curiosity. If she would have lived she would be 40 years old and within this age group, as many of her contemporaries within the black community are. AIDS is a very real, and *very deadly epidemic.
*Please, it does not have to be! In her honor, go beyond curiosity, get tested be safe.
Diet can play a crucial role in supporting the overall health and immunity of blood cancer patients. However, it's essential to remember that diet alone is not a substitute for medical treatment, and any dietary changes should be discussed with the patient's healthcare team, particularly for individuals undergoing cancer treatments like chemotherapy or radiation. Here are some dietary guidelines that may help boost immunity for blood cancer patients:
A Balanced Diet: A well-balanced diet is essential for overall health. Focus on a variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. A diverse diet ensures that the patient receives a wide range of essential nutrients.
Protein: Adequate protein intake is essential for immune function and muscle maintenance. Choose lean protein sources like poultry, fish, legumes, and low-fat dairy products. For those with dietary restrictions or preferences, consider plant-based protein sources like tofu, tempeh, and beans.
Fruits and Vegetables: These are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can support the immune system. Aim for a rainbow of colors, as different colors often signify different beneficial nutrients.
Hydration: Staying well-hydrated is crucial, as dehydration can weaken the immune system. Encourage the patient to drink plenty of water and consider herbal teas or diluted fruit juices.
Fiber-Rich Foods: Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes are excellent sources of dietary fiber. A high-fiber diet can promote gut health, which plays a significant role in immune function.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as fatty fish (e.g., salmon, mackerel, and sardines), flaxseeds, and walnuts, can have anti-inflammatory effects and support immune health.
Probiotic Foods: Fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi contain probiotics that can help maintain a healthy gut microbiome and support the immune system.
Vitamin C: Foods rich in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, strawberries, and bell peppers, can provide antioxidant support for the immune system.
Vitamin D: Adequate vitamin D intake is crucial for immune function. Some dietary sources of vitamin D include fatty fish, fortified dairy products, and fortified plant-based milk alternatives.
Caloric Adequacy: Blood cancer patients may experience weight loss or loss of appetite, so it's essential to ensure they maintain adequate caloric intake. Smaller, frequent meals and snacks can be helpful.
Limit Sugar and Processed Foods: Reducing the consumption of sugary and highly processed foods can help maintain stable blood sugar levels and support overall health.
Food Safety: As blood cancer patients may have compromised immune systems, it's crucial to emphasize food safety practices, such as thorough cooking, avoiding raw or undercooked foods, and proper food storage.
Supplements: Depending on individual nutritional needs and medical advice, supplements such as multivitamins or specific nutrients (e.g., vitamin D or B vitamins) may be recommended.
Consult a Registered Dietitian: Blood cancer patients should consult a registered dietitian who can create a personalized nutrition plan tailored to their specific needs, taking into account factors like treatment side effects, dietary restrictions, and individual preferences.

No. FIV and HIV are truly like apples and oranges. While both are fruits, they can only grow on a specific tree.
I had an FIV positive cat for 6 years until his immune system could no longer keep up. There is no danger of infection to you; however it is imperative that you keep the cat isolated from other cats at all times, which usually means keeping them indoors. He/she will be highly susceptable to infection, and will require extra cleaning care. Otherwise they are just as wonderful and safe to keep as any other cat.
Your dog may seem to act irretated and uncomftorable.If your dog seems to act unusual,you should schedule a vet appointment soon just to make sure he's ok.And remember,it's better to be safe than sorry;)Thankyou for using answers.com=)
Only way to find out for certain is to undergo two blood tests, testing for the virus and concentration of certain white blood cells. The same test has to be done six months apart, as the first testing period may fall under the incubation period, where the HIV virus cannot be detected.
I am not sure that it helps but if that is what you crave during a fair up and you can tolerate them go ahead and indulge. Many patients get "cravings" for certain foods and some doctors feel it is the bodies way of getting what it needs during a crisis. The high sugar content and high fat of the coconut is most likely what you need. Many Crohn's patients report an urge for "cornflakes" Easily digested and unlikely to cause blockage.
Soy sauce is made from the soy bean. It also has a large amount of sodium (AKA Salt).
Discoid lupus may come and go in periods of increased disease activity called flares. Additionally, sometimes discoid lupus goes into remission and disease activity stops altogether. This is rare, but possible.
As of now, there is much uncertainty as to the cause of Crohn's disease. The leading theory is that it is probably genetic, yet some environmental trigger has set it off. The "environmental trigger" is very vague. It's possible it could be bacteria, stress, or anything else.
Accutane does not cause Crohn's disease. There is no known cause or cure for Crohns disease. Isotretinoin (Accutane) is a powerful drug used in the treatment of acne. This drug may exacerbate symptoms of a Crohn's disease patient, but you can be assured that you already had Crohns disease long before you ever started using the drug for your pimples.
Accutane, developed in 1996, is used for treatment of severe recalcitrant nodular acne that has not responded to other therapies. Isotretinoin, the active ingredient in Accutane is available in generic formulations by a number of other manufacturers, not just Hoffman-La Roche.
In all 5,000 cases so far launched, the empirical proof that Accutane actually caused the bowel disease is still none existent. The suspicion that Isotretinoin may have exacerbated the already present disease is still being investigated.
The Florida court of appeals overturned the judgment where an amount slightly over 7 million was awarded. The plaintiff in that case, Adam Mason, was initially awarded 7 million dollars. The three-judge panel overturned the decision because the argument that use of Accutane was temporarily associated with the cause of his diagnosed inflammatory bowel disease wasn't strong enough. The court of appeals also ruled that Mason did not sufficiently prove that Accutane's lack of a warning label contributed to his illness.
In the other large award case involving bowel disease in 2008, a jury awarded Kamie Kendall over 10 million dollars in compensatory damages after it was alleged that Accutane was the cause of her inflammatory bowel disease. The plaintiff began taking Accutane when she was 12 years old, and two years later was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. It stands to reason that with 5 million Americans using the drug for what it was intended for, bad acne, some will develop serious diseases unrelated to a specific use of a certain drug.
According to the Wall Street Journal, while Kendall was originally awarded damages of over 10 million dollars, appeals courts also ruled that there was never enough evidence to support awarding these damages.
One thing is clear, these lawsuits have not held up in appeals and have no proof that this drug causes bowel disease. It does prove, that in a litigious society such as the United States, the mere suggestion that "someone" is responsible for a disease that is suspected to have been around for thousands of years and identified by Dr. Buril Crohn in 1930 is just cause for lawyers to make money and profit from the misery of others.
Yes. People who have asthma or allergies may already have inflamed and irritated lungs. If so, and if their bodies are already fighting one irritant or illness, it is more difficult for them to fight off a virus. Smokers are also more likely to have irritated lungs and are more likely to catch a cold or the flu. The symptoms for those with allergies will likely be worse. It can also more easily lead to pneumonia.
If you are faithful to each other (i.e. neither of you have other sexual partners) then you cannot contract HIV through sexual intercourse.
However, your words 'clearly don't have it' are disturbing as one can have HIV without symptoms. I suggest you both go along together to get a test so both your minds are put at rest.
Depends on what type of blood test you take. Regular blood tests do not show AIDS, unless you ask for the facility to look for it. If you have a blood test done for, as an example, being a blood donor, then they will look for AIDS
No Lil Flip is still alive living in Houston Texas sippin lean smokin green.
The standard HIV test, whether a rapid test or one sent to the laboratory, will detect the presence of antibodies to the HIV virus. When the body becomes infected, it will attempt to fight the infection by developing antibodies. Therefore, if a test finds antibodies, it has in essence indicated that the HIV virus is also present.
It can if your stomach and upper intestines are actively involved.
Vomiting blood at any time is serious and medical assistance is immediately required. Some of the medications used to treat a Crohn's flare can irritate the lining of the stomach causing bloody vomit.
Anxiety can cause this.Also certain medications.
The end result of HIV is AIDS, the end result of which is often, if not always, death. However, medication has come a long way and if caught early and properly dealt with HIV psitive people can live a long and full life.
No.... only sexual intercourse or blood
If there is blood in it, even in trace amounts then yes, otherwise no. It won't affect you anyway unless you let someone vomit in your mouth or on an open sore or genital area.
I have Lupus...I am a 21 year-old male, and have one of the most rarest instances of being positive for lupus in my blood. It is primarily a disease women have and not likely for teenagers and young adults to show positive results for it. Basically to answer your question, lupus is characterized by an extemely-high ANA count in your blood, which is a person's white-blood cell concentration. To put it loosely, it is the exact opposite of the HIV/AIDS virus where one dose not have enough white blood cells to fend off common colds and toxins. Actually having lupus has seem to keep me very healthy and I rarely get sick, although there are several different types of lupus you can research further...such as ones that will cause rashes and breakouts when exposed to sunlight.
There are 3 main types of lupus (that i know of): '''Drug-Induced lupus''' (lasting only for the duration of the medication causing it) '''Discoid lupus''' (effecting mainly the skin and extremities) '''Systemic lupus erythematosus''' (effecting almost everything; kidneys, brain, heart, lungs, skin, joints, muscles)
No, Crohns is not caused by Diabetes. A study in 2007 suggested a link between the two because both are autoimmune diseases but geneticists who found the gene linking Crohns and type 1 diabetes found it to be insignificant. The overall increase in risk of disease conferred by the various genetic risk factors was between 1.2 and 1.5 times, suggesting routine testing is not worthwhile.
