I think you could only make this assumption if they said "patient is on standard htn tx" but since they gave the name hctz, would not be fair to assume they are also taking spirinolactone. I went with process of elimination on this one.
Even checked access medicine's drug adverse effect profile...galactorrhea not listed for hctz
Amazing explanation. Thank you!!
CO2 is carried in the blood is bound to hemoglobin, known as carbaminohemoglobin (HbCO2) (5%), dissolved CO2 (5%), bicarb is 90%
More like Zika Virus (Same a. aegypti vector) since it says she has rash associated to her bone and muscle pain. I had Zika one time (i live in Puerto Rico).
Remember also dengue and Zika are Flavivirus. Dengue can cause hemolysis (hemorrhagic), and Zika is associated with Guillen Barre and fetal abnormalities.
I'm shocked that I found a fellow puerto rican on this site! Good luck on your test!
dont be shocked! me too! exito!
I was thinking that its Murine typhus transmitted by fleas
Yea i get that, but if the patients CD4 was ~35, how in the world did the CD4 count rise enough to stimulate B cell proliferation...? I don't get it
The only thing i can think of is that:
the cd4 count that is given was taken prior to having started the antiretroviral therapy.
Since the question asks about "improved function", maybe its referring to the therapy actually being effective and its managed to increase cd4 count and function so as to be able to contribute to lymph node enlargement due to myco. avium
I swear they make up some of this stuff. Like whats up with the thirst, urination, and peptic ulcer diseases.
hypercalcemia can cause nephrogenic diabetes inspidus; so thirst, urination. hypercalcemia can also cause peptic ulcer disease. His symptoms are all about hypercalcemia due to hyperparathyroidism.
