Schizophrenia does not require mercury or other dental metal pollution for its expression. This pattern is logical when it is seen that young children can have schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is an ancient illness, being described in some very old literature, before dentistry existed. But parasites existed. And moldy food existed. And copper existed Lead and copper are commonly seen in schizophrenia sufferers. The usual source for these is the household water (household plumbing may have lead solder joints). Change plumbing to PVC, then take thioctic acid (100 mg, twice a day). Parasites always found in schizophrenia are hookworms (4 Ancylostoma varieties) in the brain. 7. Give away pets. Schizophrenia is too serious to risk reinfection.
Antipsychotic agents are occasionally used in individuals with depression, either to augment a primary antidepressant's effectiveness or in the treatment of depression with psychotic features. Atypical antipsychotics (i.e., risperidone, olanzapine, clozapine, quetiapine, aripiprazole and ziprasidone) are now used more frequently than older antipsychotic medication. It has become clear that these medications can have significant negative effects on weight, lipid metabolism, and glucose homeo-stasis, contributing to the constellation of cardiac risk factors that constitutes metabolic syndrome (147). Of these medications, aripiprazole and ziprasidone appear to be least likely to promote weight gain, and, to date, have not been found to be associated with an increased risk of worsening glucose homeostasis, although there have been occasional case reports of sudden onset diabetic ketoacidosis or worsening of the lipid profile (147). Both risperidone and quetiapine have an intermediate...
A 56-year-old man with type 1 diabetes and schizophrenia, was referred to the diabetic foot clinic for dry gangrene of his hallux, 2nd and 3rd toes (Fig. 8.28). The patient was new to our clinic, having been transferred from another hospital. The patient's medical history was quite remarkable he had recently been very ill, in ketoacidosis, with a blood sugar level 1200 mg dL (66.7 mmol L). The gangrenous changes in his toes developed during this episode, and appear to be related to a shower of emboli to his toes. Pedal pulses were present and Doppler studies were otherwise normal. He underwent a successful transmetatarsal amputation with an unremarkable postoperative course (Fig. 8.29a). A custom-made orthosis with a stump filler was provided for the patient for use in extra-depth therapeutic shoes (Fig. 8.29b). The patient is very satisfied with the results of his amputation and ambulates normally without a limp. This transmetatarsal amputation has been durable with no further...
Myocardial infarction has rarely been documented as a consequence of hypoglycaemia (Fisher and Frier, 1993). In a series of non-diabetic patients with schizophrenia who were treated with hypoglycaemic shock therapy in the 1930s, 12 of 90 deaths were ascribed to cardiac causes, with the majority of deaths being caused by cerebral damage. It should be emphasised that this long-abandoned form of treatment of psychiatric disease necessitated prolonged and profound hypoglycaemia.
If your house is more than 10 years old, change all the galvanized pipe to PVC plastic. Although PVC is a toxic substance, amazingly, the water is free of PVC in three weeks If your house has copper pipes don't wait for cancer or schizophrenia to claim a family member. Change all the copper pipe to PVC plastic immediately. If the pipes are not accessible, ask a plumber to lay an extra line, outside the walls. This is less expensive, too.
Sleep disordered breathing, cognitive dysfunction, and certain forms of cancer. In addition, insulin resistance and its consequences have been shown to complicate protease inhibitor treatment of HIV AIDS, as well as the use of atypical antipsy-chotic drugs in patients with schizophrenia. Consequently, it is suggested that the various abnormalities and clinical syndromes more likely to occur in insulin-resistant individuals be subsumed under the rubric of the IRS.
It should also be kept in mind that severe chronic mental illness is often complicated by obesity. In over 60 of patients with schizoaffective disorder and bipolar disorder psychotropic drugs were used (118,119). The choice of antipsychotic drugs used in children is particularly poignant in schizophrenia (120). Olanzapine is frequently used as it is effective in inducing remission of mental symptoms, but it is associated with marked weight gain leading to obesity. As the weight problem progresses adherence to the medication decreases, even with newer antipsychotic medications (121).
Change your galvanized pipes to PVC plastic. If you believe you already have plastic pipes or all copper (which leads to leukemia, schizophrenia and fertility problems) you will need to search every inch of plumbing for a very short piece of galvanized pipe left in the system A piece as short as a 2 inch T or Y can be causing all the trouble.
Accuracy of genotyping and exclusion of Mendel errors are important for success, but so is the careful definition of affection status. This may not always be easy for diseases like asthma, schizophrenia or systematic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Even with diabetes, the definition is based upon artificial cut-offs of plasma glucose. Dichotomising variables may result in loss of power. One alternative is therefore to search for linkage to a qualitative trait, e.g. blood glucose, blood pressure or body mass index, instead of diabetes, hypertension and obesity. Heritability (h2) is often used as a measure of the genetic component of a quantitative trait. The higher the heritability, the more likely it is a genetic cause of a trait will be found. Several statistical programmes have been developed to support genome-wide scans of quantitative trait loci (QTL), such as the variance component models SOLAR and Merlin Linkage will only identify relatively large chromosomal regions (often 20 cM)...
A 53-year-old man with a history of schizophrenia, poorly controlled type 2 diabetes of 9 years' duration and a dense peripheral neuropathy with sensory loss extending above the ankle, had developed his own unique method for sensory testing. He used a lit cigarette to establish the level of sensory loss on his lower legs and had several circular scars and burns in various stages of healing. He was followed for routine care in the diabetic foot clinic, for treatment of an intractable plantar keratosis beneath his right 5th metatarsal head. Having missed his last scheduled appointment, the patient finally returned to clinic with the chief complaint of pain in his right foot that had started 2 weeks before.
