Lead poisoning is diagnosed with a blood lead test. This test is performed on a standard blood sample.
Lead is common in the environment. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences reports that no amount of lead in the blood is safe. It is known that levels as low as 5 micrograms per deciliter can be associated with health problems in children.
Additional tests could include blood tests to look at the amount of iron storing cells in the blood, X-rays, and possibly a bone marrow biopsy.
Your child's doctor may recommend your child be tested for lead levels during routine check-ups.
The American Academy of Pediatricians recommends that doctors and parents follow the recommendations of their state or local health department. Some areas, such as those with older homes, have a higher lead exposure risk, so more frequent testing might be recommended for children who live in those areas.
If your area doesn't have specific lead testing recommendations, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends your child be tested for lead levels at ages 1 and 2. Doctors might also suggest lead screening for older children who haven't been tested.
A simple blood test can detect lead poisoning. A small blood sample is taken from a finger prick or from a vein. Lead levels in the blood are measured in micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL).
There is no safe blood level of lead. However, a level of 5 mcg/dL is used to indicate a possibly unsafe level for children. Children whose blood tests at those levels should be tested periodically. A child whose levels become too high — generally 45 mcg/dL or higher — should be treated.

Viruses do not have the chemical machinery needed to survive on their own. They, thus seek out host cells in which they can multiply. These viruses enter the body from the environment or other individuals from soil to water to air via nose, mouth, or any breaks in the skin and seek a cell to infect.
A cold or flu virus for example will target cells that line the respiratory (i.e. the lungs) or digestive (i.e. the stomach) tracts. The HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) that causes AIDS attacks the T-cells (a type of white blood cell that fights infection and disease) of the immune system.
Life cycle of a basic virus
There are a few basic steps that all infecting viruses follow and these are called the lytic cycle. These include:
A virus particle attaches to a host cell. This is called the process of adsorption
The particle injects its DNA or RNA into the host cell called entry.
The invading DNA or RNA takes over the cell and recruits the host’s enzymes
The cellular enzymes start making new virus particles called replication
The particles of the virus created by the cell come together to form new viruses. This is called assembly
The newly formed viruses kill the cell so that they may break free and search for a new host cell. This is called release.
What is gallbladder pain?
Gallbladder pain is (often misspelled "gall bladder") an all-inclusive term used to describe any pain due to disease related to the gallbladder. The major gallbladder problems that produce gallbladder pain are biliary colic, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, and ascending cholangitis. Symptoms vary and may be triggered by eating certain foods. The pain may be described as intermittent, constant, abdominal, radiating to the back, mild to severe depending on the underlying cause.
A brief review of the gallbladder anatomy and function may help readers better understand gallbladder pain. The gallbladder is connected to the liver via ducts that supply bile to the gallbladder for storage. These bile ducts then form the common hepatic duct that joins with the cystic duct from the gallbladder to form the common bile duct that empties into the GI tract (duodenum). In addition, the pancreatic duct usually merges with the common bile duct just before it enters the duodenum. Hormones trigger the gallbladder to release bile when fat and amino acids reach the duodenum after eating a meal (see illustration below), which facilitates the digestion of these foods. Statistics suggest that women may have up to twice the incidence of gallstones than men.
As stated previously, the major gallbladder problems that produce gallbladder pain are biliary colic, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis, and ascending cholangitis. There are two major causes of pain that either originate from the gallbladder or involve the gallbladder directly. They are due to 1) intermittent or complete blockage of any of the ducts by gallstones; or 2) gallstone sludge and/or inflammation that may accompany irritation or infection of the surrounding tissues, when partial or complete obstruction of ducts causes pressure and ischemia (inadequate blood supply due to a blockage of blood vessels in the area) to develop in the adjacent tissues.
The first step of treatment is to locate and remove the source of the lead. Keep children away from the source. If it cannot be removed, it should be sealed. Call your local health department for information on how to remove lead. They can also help you reduce the likelihood of lead exposure.
In more severe cases, a procedure known as chelation therapy can be used. This treatment binds to lead that has accumulated in your body. The lead is then excreted in your urine.
Activated charcoal can be used to bind the lead in the gastrointestinal tract and encourage elimination via defecation. A chemical called EDTA may also be used
Even with treatment, it can be hard to reverse the effects of chronic exposure.
The first step in treating lead poisoning is to remove the source of the contamination. If you can't remove lead from your environment, you might be able to reduce the likelihood that it will cause problems.
For instance, sometimes it's better to seal in rather than remove old lead paint. Your local health department can recommend ways to identify and reduce lead in your home and community.
For children and adults with relatively low lead levels, simply avoiding exposure to lead might be enough to reduce blood lead levels.
Sleep Apnea is a serious issue that does not simply make sleep uncomfortable. It can keep you up for hours and hours, and rob you of the energy you need. It can also be related to other medical issues, such as obesity and hypertension (high blood pressure). To be diagnosed, you may need to take a polysomnogram test, which involves spending a night at a sleep laboratory. Sensors will be attached to your limbs, face, chest and scalp, and will measure such things as snoring, breathing, and the rise and fall of your chest. If your condition is found to be serious, you may be prescribed a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device. It's a safe, comfortable face mask that regulates your breathing. In some cases, surgery may be required. However, if you condition is a mild form of Sleep Apnea, some changes to your lifestyle may be enough to stop it. Losing weight, avoiding sleeping on your back, and ending smoking often help you get better sleep. If you think you have Sleep Apnea, talk to your physician, and begin the process of diagnosis and treatment.

Diagnosing prostatitis involves ruling out other conditions as the cause of your symptoms and determining what kind of prostatitis you have. Your doctor will ask about your medical history and your symptoms. He or she will also do a physical exam, which will likely include a digital rectal examination.
Initial diagnostic tests might include:
Urine tests. Your doctor might have a sample of your urine analyzed to look for signs of infection in your urine (urinalysis). Your doctor might also send a sample of your urine to a lab to determine if you have an infection.
Blood tests. Your doctor might examine samples of your blood for signs of infection and other prostate problems.
Post-prostatic massage. In rare cases, your doctor might massage your prostate and test the secretions.
Imaging tests. In some cases, your doctor might order a CT scan of your urinary tract and prostate or a sonogram of your prostate. CT scan images provide more detailed information than plain X-rays do. A sonogram is the visual image produced by an ultrasound.
Based on your symptoms and test results, your doctor might conclude that you have one of the following types of prostatitis:
Lymph nodes are small bean shaped glands connected by the lymph vessels. The carry lymph through the body, help dispose of waste, and produce white blood cells to help fight infection. They are part of your immune system, like your spleen and tonsils. Lymph nodes commonly become swollen with diseases like strep throat, mono, or mumps as your body produces extra white blood cells to fight the infection. Even a canker sore in the mouth can cause lymph nodes to swell. Natural remedies for swollen lymph nodes support the immune system, help fight infection, and encourage lymph flow. Apple cider vinegar, castor oil, and vitamin C are among simple home remedies for swollen lymph nodes.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is taken internally to reduce swelling in the lymph nodes. 1 – 3 teaspoons of raw and organic apple cider vinegar are added to a glass of water. This tonic is usually taken 1 – 3 times a day. The tonic helps to alkalize your body, putting it into better shape to fight infection. It also contains micro-nutrients which support your health.
Castor oil is used externally for swollen lymph nodes. Massage the castor oil into the swollen lymph nodes twice daily, or more often as needed. If you have a particular area of swelling, you can apply heat after you apply the castor oil. A heating pad or warm rice sock can be used for this purpose.
Peppermint essential oil is a strong and stimulating oil. One or two drops can be applied to swollen lymph nodes twice a day. Some people find peppermint essential oil too strong to apply straight. In this case, add 5 drops of peppermint essential oil to 1 teaspoon of castor oil, coconut oil or olive oil.
Extra vitamin C can be taken to help your immune system fight infection. 1,000 mg of vitamin c are taken 3-5 times a day. If you begin to get loose stools, cut back on the amount you take.
