first,I would like to say it is an honor to join such anice dialogue forum.
I faced a-31 years old female single patient complaining of recurrent red cell anaemia(low Hb)that necicitates multiple repeated blood transfusions,&here is whole story:
problem get started 2years back when she got a rickettsial infection manifested in purpuric rash in both palms&soles,spleenomegaly,admitted to infectous department &managed there ,no document regarding receiving a-chloramphicol,few months later spleenectomy was done for here probably on basis of hypersplinism,soonafter, she was presented with severe dyspnea&diagnosed to have a-pericardial effussion that is treated,here suspesion raised about SLE but workup was totally free,
thymoma is ruled out,bone marrow aspirate showed hypoplastic picture with low erythroid &normal other cell lines,no atypical cells were found.
usual Hb is 4%,2.9g% but with changing ESR.

  • Her pancreas might have a dormant infection- or chronic inflamation- hence it eventually invaded the spleen and it had to be removed.You may want to test liver and pancreas- Is the patient underweight, overweight- does she look pre-diabetic?Is she showing lupus symptoms?I am suspecting that liver and pancreas are deficient (perhaps due to a chronic infection) and that toxins are moving back into the blood stream- that's why she has the shortness of breath.It is very hard to hunt down for toxins in the blood- but if her liver or pancreas enzimatic activity looks elevated and if she has too much protein in the urine- we are looking at a chronically deficient and irritated pancreas, and liver. This eventually echo in the heart with the shortness of breath which usually arrives from 30 minutes to 2 hours after meals.She might present inflammation -perhaps thirst, but it will be very hard for her to urinate more than small amounts of pale urine.Possible treatments if my assumptions are correct:Rhodiola Rosea will oxygenate the pancreas and reduce the shortness of breath. Her pancreas is not salvaging oxygen and blood cells- that's why her blood count is not normal.She needs to increase her water intake- she does not have enough blood in her system.Oil of Oregano to clear the infection : at this point antibiotics will cause violent adverse reactions.Decrease animal proteins from her diet- and try to reintegrate if back slowly.Querecitin for chronic inflammation.She will need Acupuncture treatment. Complex B supplementationOmega Supplementation- to replace the lipids in Liver and Pancreas.Keep her hydrated.BestFruit.ps: She will need Milk Thistle (Sylmarin) and Extra Vitamin C and Magnesium.Perhaps Gluthatione.She does not have Lupus, but she might 'get it' if the pancreatitis is not dealt with.

  • Eliminate milk (it slows down the pancreas) and refined sugars. Supplement with Calcium.
