Why Use Fluconazole Treatment

One of the nastiest types of infection is fungal infection.  Although they are more likely to grow on the skin, there are more serious ones though that develops in the respiratory system and infect not just the lungs, but also the blood and other parts of the body’s internal structure.  When you develop a fungal infection, it is vital that you treat the infection as soon as possible to prevent further growth, development, and spread of the infection.  Failure to do so may mean longer and costlier treatment.  Fluconazole treatment is needed for treating fungal infection.  Fluconazole treatment is an antifungal medication treatment that you take orally.

Most antifungals are applied on the skin directly to where the infection has developed.  However, if the infection has buried further or deeper in to the skin, or the infection has developed inside of the body, such topical type of antifungal will not work on such.  For cases like this, fluconazole treatment is necessary as fluconazole treatment comes in pill form which you take orally.  The treatment process in using fluconazole treatment is the purging of the infection from the inside of your body.  This effectively gets rid of the infection from your system.

For antifungal fluconazole treatment, it is necessary that you use fluconazole treatment for a course of several days.  The number of days you need to use fluconazole treatment depends on the type of infection that you have developed and the severity that it has.  Course treatment is necessary in completely getting rid of an infection from the body.  This is the very reason why doctors prescribe patients with several days of use of fluconazole treatment when they have a fungal infection.  By completing the course of fluconazole treatment, you will be able to completely purge the fungal infection out of the body.

Salt in the (internal) wound


How many of your patients know how much salt is there in an Oreo cookie? Probably a lot more than you or they might think. Three cookies give you fully 11% of your daily recommend, for children the figure is a lot higher. Perhaps you'd be better to switch to low fat cottage cheese. No you wouldn't. A single serving contains one quarter of the daily adult intake.

These are some of the numbers from a US government commissioned study by the Institute of Medicine which estimates salt causes 100,000 premature deaths due to hypertension and related diseases.

“Salt is very addicting,” says Sidney Alexander, a Boston cardiologist. He sees his patients struggle. “Even though there are good salt substitutes and other spices they can use, they have a hard time giving it up."

There's very little you can do to avoid over dosing on salt unless you eat only food prepared at home. Three-quarters of the salt you consume comes from processed food and that served in restaurants. Some dishes contain three and four times the daily requirement.

This article has some value to the lay person but it is not revealing anything to the practitioner level that is not already known.

Medical reporting must have equivalent status and revelation that would make the medical practitioner sense " value added".

Sam accomplished that through the " direct interview" which created an atmosphere of" scoop". Sam also had a regular pattern of contributions that stimulated readership interest.

come on.... bump it up a notch...or two...... or three........

Q- do you remember the India fable of the blind men examining the elephant.......( used medically as a way to describe the polyclonal response to the same antigen)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyclonal_B_cell_response ?

Q- did you know this is happening in the physician /patient interraction where only one or two parts of the patient's issues are allowed to be discussed per visit?

Let's continue with articles to bring the " art of medicine" to a canvas that qualifies to be hung in the gallery .

You used to have a readership of 50,000 ...why not build on the "why" of that reality?

sadly ...my www.backtype.com/purleyquirt.... URL has closed it's commentshare archive and recommended the participants have their own blog.

Hence future postings here will not have that connection.

Since:

1.Canadian Medicine is my exclusive comment site
( as mentioned before it is part of my breakfast routine :)

2. I have no time to maintain my own blog

I welcome you to simply review their own archives for thematic input on different issues.

???perhaps CM will consider archival sorting and interraction amongst commentshare members who do not wish to form their own blogs or babble incessantly in a forum

* an alternative is to check google...sometimes the googlebot follows Purley around :)

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.
