Possible CF (input please)

Hello all. I am a 20 year old male, and was recently tested via sweat test for CF. I received the call five days ago that I did not have CF due to the results, but I am not fully confident (as online research has led me to discover that in some, albeit very few, cases, the sweat test may produce normal results despite the patient having CF). Here's why I am not fully confident: 1) I was diagnosed with asthma at a young age--however, this asthma is so mild that it has a negligible impact on my life as of now. I need to take two puffs of my albuterol inhaler MAYBE once a week, if not less than that. I do not usually need it when I work out, and it hardly affects me in any way. However, when I was younger, I had a few more issues with it, and had to take breathing treatments once or twice a day. My mother was told that I a certain portion of my lungs was damaged when I was young, and I will never get usage of this part back (I cannot remember what part of my lungs were damaged). My father has asthma, more severely than I do. My mother has mild asthma as well. This is a point of concern because I know that many times in cases of late onset, early signs of CF are mistaken for asthma. 2) As a child, I had problems with intestinal blocking. I should say, rather, I had one major issue. It has turned into a story I tell my friends to be funny, but now I am a bit frightened. When I was about 4, I had a blockage in my intestine for which I had to go to the hospital and be hooked up ...

Build daily habits that focus on using gratitude to get happier. Gratitude is a way to quickly pivot from one negative feeling to a more positive state of mind. Everyone faces struggles and strife in their life, especially now. Some people are just so good at dealing with the stress, that it seems like their life is perfect. Although establishing healthy practices is super helpful, no one’s life is perfect. Let’s face it, some days are just better than others.

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Quinzi V, Brugiati M, Marchetti E, Mancini L, Marzo G, Lo Giudice A Abstract The aim of this study was to introduce a new adjustable device in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The new appliance has a different way to regulate and move the mandible through the presence of two occlusal lifts, that can leave an open posterior space, and the complex system formed by the peduncle and the steel plate that can easily move forward the mandible. This system guarantees a posterior space for the tongue but mostly for the passage of air. The principal aim of Bruma MAD is to ...

Abstract SUMMARYClinical symptoms of active tuberculosis (TB) can range from a simple cough to more severe reactions, such as irreversible lung damage and, eventually, death, depending on disease progression. In addition to its clinical presentation, TB has been associated with several other disease-induced systemic complications, such as hyponatremia and glucose intolerance. Here, we provide an overview of the known, although ill-described, underlying biochemical mechanisms responsible for the clinical and systemic presentations associated with this disease and discuss novel hypotheses recently generated by vario...

Authors: Lucendo AJ, Molina-Infante J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a non-IgE-mediated food allergy that currently represents the main cause of dysphagia and food impaction in children and young adults. Diet remains the only therapy targeting the cause of the disease. Relevant advances in recent years allow novel approaches to dietary therapy in EoE. AREAS COVERED: An up-to-date review on dietary therapy for EoE is provided, as a potential first-line anti-inflammatory therapy able to induce and maintain remission in a significant proportion of patients. Unpractical elemental diets and...
