This was a new one to me...

Quote:

Salmon calcitonin (Miacalcin; Novartis, East Hanover, New Jersey; Fortical; Upsher Smith Pharmaceuticals, Maple Grove, Minnesota) is a peptide sequence that antagonizes human parathyroid hormone and directly inhibits resorption of bone.21 When used for postmenopausal osteoporosis, this agent is either administered intranasally, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly.

Generally calcitonin is well tolerated, although it can occasionally cause epistaxis or rhinitis in approximately 12% of patients.19,20 It should always be avoided in any patient with a seafood allergy, due to its origin as a salmon product.


From an article on osteoporosis...

Guess what I found in some fresh watercress? Snails! Even though I'd rinsed out the vegetables prior to cooking, I still found a couple of small snails in the soup. Thank God my son is only allergic to crustacean shellfish.

Not knowing if this would cause a reaction in seafood allergic persons, but the chemical I just poured into our hot tub, is all natural...the active ingredient is a natural polymer made from CRAB SHELLS.

Hi. I had posted the question about the contrast dye with the CT-Scans. I spoke to my doctor abt my concern with the CT-Scan w/contrast and he told me there is an alternative. He sent me for an MRI w/contrast which is different than the one they use for CT-Scan. I had no problems with it. When I went for an MRI they couldn't believe how many allergies I have and they told me that quite a few people have reacted with the contrast used for CT-Scans but not many with the contrast for MRI's. They told me they had never had a severe reaction happen to someone getting an MRI. They did say that very few people may experience some itching but it usually happens right away and they treat it right away but they never had a severe situation. I hope this helps other people in the same situation. I had pelvic and abdominal MRI done with and without contrast.

Omega 3 supplements. I have found these in yogurt and orange juice and most recently juicy juice's new juices. Omega 3s are very popular right now, so be sure to be careful!

Cranky the crab strikes again! Well, he might as well have a name...

DH just picked up the dog from boarding. He needed some ear drops and came home with a nice ear wash, too. Only when I picked up the earwash to look for iodine, I saw "chitosan" on the label.Sure enough, Virbac has decided that crab shell makes for a nice substrate in ear cleanser. Smiley Seems crab futures might be a good investment; they're showing up in everything now.

GGA,

Pet ear drops! Thanks for letting us know. Smiley

LOL on "Cranky the crab," though... might as well have a sense of humor about the whole thing!

A particularly UGLY list.


One that makes me look downright CRANKY. You know, to coin a phrase.

The Epi-Otic is something that I have in the past used on our dog.



No more, clearly. Smiley
