The Body-Friendly Sonogram

I find the use of the Doppler/sonogram just fascinating! Most of us use the Doppler or have heard of the Doppler because we watch the weatherman on the news. Or you've heard of a sonogram in relation to pregnancy and seeing a baby in vitro.

But you have no idea how many different diseases can be diagnosed without a biopsy, and without cutting into the body or causing other major damage, by using the body friendly Doppler and sonogram. This is such a great leap forward in terms of diagnosing disease.

Dr. Bard of the Bard Cancer Center (http://www.cancerscan.com or 212-355-7017) in New York City - who has been my link to all things radiology - has told me what can happen, for example, just in the case of a missed diagnosis of parathyroid disease. I always wonder how a disease that has these many symptoms can possibly be missed, but it is - 90% of the time clinically!

If you don't understand the symptoms of a parathyroid disease, first it helps to understand the thyroid and the parathyroid relationship. The thyroid looks like a Monarch butterfly. It wraps its wings part-way around the cartilage in the cervical spine/neck area. The parathyroid is like the circles on the Monarch wings - there are four little parathyroid glands. They can be easily missed - but the symptoms cannot!

The following symptoms can be a signal to you that something may be happening (like parathyroid adenomas):

  1. HAIR LOSS (frontal), DRY SKIN, and BRITTLE NAILS
  2. TIREDNESS, LACK OF ENERGY, and IRRITABILITY
  3. DEPRESSION, POOR SLEEP, and LOSS OF SEXUAL DESIRE
  4. LACK OF CONCENTRATION and FORGETFULNESS
  5. GASTRIC REFLUX, KIDNEY STONES (back pain), and CONSTIPATION
  6. HEADACHES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, and EYE PROBLEMS
  7. MUSCLE PAIN, BONE PAIN, and WEAKNESS!!

What? Holy cow!!!! All these problems may be relieved by a correct diagnosis? What are ya waiting for?

A simple, painless, non-invasive procedure can help diagnose and then help you to decide on a treatment that may be able to relieve so many symptoms. That is the great thing about living in our time medically - we have options. Options, however, are only good if you know they exist!

And THAT is why I write my blogs!!! :)

Warm Regards,

Carol
