Is the above result believable? The results show treatment of symptoms of ED, if the medication stops then the symptoms will come back. So yes the results are believable one could say, but they are not permanent. If yes, what makes Cialis cure Erectile Dysfunction permanently? CIALIS does not: Cure ED, increase a man's sexual desire, protect a man or ...

There are three major reasons why we can't just keep someone in an aseptic environment and wait for their CD4 count to drop to zero and - presumably - for HIV to have consumed itself to extinction in the patient: Time. In the Pre-HAART era in a middle-income country like Brazil, the median survival time for someone with AIDS was 1.1 years, but that can be a ...

Yes and no. Type 2 Diabetes is a metabolic disease in which a person’s body still produces insulin but is unable to use it effectively. Reversing Type 2 Diabetes is more a factor of improving the insulin resistance levels in the long term.It depends on several factors whether or not is feasible to reverse the pathology, one among them is the duration of the ...

Short answer Sometimes (and yes, deafening has been used as a treatment for some patients). Tinnitus has multiple causes Although the mechanisms of tinnitus are not completely understood, many forms of sustained tinnitus are not caused by activity in hair cells. Rather, the causes involve auditory brain regions beyond the inner ear, likely due to those ...

This is not the right place to ask that question, you/your sister need to talk with the medical professional who evaluated and diagnosed him. In the USA, whoever proposes to do surgery has a legal and ethical obligation to explain it thoroughly (the reasons for the procedure with the risks, benefits, and alternatives) to the patient or legal guardian of ...

Fortunately "walking pneumonia", also known as atypical pneumonia, is not a lifelong condition. Atypical pneumonia can be caused by various bacteria and viruses. The most common bacteria that causes atypical pneumonia is Mycoplasma pneumoniae. From the CDC: "Most M. pneumoniae infections are self-limiting; however, clinicians routinely treat pneumonia ...

Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when the eye grows too long from front to back. According to the American Optometric Association, Myopia occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is too curved. As a result, the light entering the eye isn't focused correctly, and distant objects look blurred. Instead of focusing ...

This is an old technique called desensitization, or, if you want to be fancy, allergen immunotherapy. Among other techniques, is this one Allergy injections start with a very low dose. A small needle is used which may be uncomfortable, but not very painful. The dose is gradually increased on a regular (usually weekly) basis, until an effective (maintenance) ...

Surprisingly, I find this study to be credible. To understand why, let's start with some background: Following prostate removal, or radiation treatment for prostate cancer, many men experience severe ED due to damage to nerves and blood vessels. Some men recover the ability to have an erection over time, as tissues heal. However, because the men are ...

Since 'the cure' or rather a vaccine against the virus is still only on the horizon, affected populations have to resort to prevention measures and supportive care, once the infection breaks out. Even with a vaccine, mosquito population control and bite prevention will be necessary to control chikungunya disease. Chikungunya at the Door — Déjà Vu All Over ...

There is no cure yet, however, there are some studies which are showing promising results. For example, one study from 2011 demonstrated the benefits of taking β-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) in dealing with diabetes type 2 (T2D). This a long-term metabolic disorder, is directly associated with over-use of body fat and calories. Mouse studies ...

There isn't an app that 'cures' myopia There is at least one 'eye training' VR app for things like amblyopia (which I make no claim about the benefits or drawbacks of); and reports from 2015 of a company set up to do something similar: But the company is about a third of the way through an extensive nine-month trial involving 50 to 60 participants at the ...

The only effective management of viruses is by vaccination. In this way diseases such as measles have been eradicated from some countries. Currently there is no vaccine available so ecological measures such as controlling the mosquito vector need to be employed. Vaccines are under development eg. http://www.nature.com/nm/journal/v23/n2/full/nm.4253.html

There appear to be both genetic and environmental factors for the development of myopia. The results from the Sydney Myopia study found that RESULTS: Children who became myopic spent less time outdoors compared with children who remained nonmyopic (younger cohort, 16.3 vs. 21.0 hours, respectively, P<0.0001; older cohort, 17.2 vs. 19.6 hours, ...

There is no cure as yet, but there are some treatments being used or trailed that reduce the amount of blistering. In America and Japan they do bone marrow transplants for the more severe cases (but it is highly risky, and not always effective). There are various trials going on with creams at the moment for various sub-types of EB, for example for EB ...

Sorry to say this, but epidermolysis bullosa doesn't have a cure, but there are ways to treat its symptoms. Medications can help control pain and itching and address complications such as infection in the ...

Your question contains a number of over simplifications. Cancer isn't one disease. That's not an "excuse", it's a fact that was painfully learned by researchers who rolled up their sleeves to "cure cancer" and realized they had it wrong. Second, "poisons" (I presume you mean chemotherapy) are not the only treatment. You ignored not only surgery and ...

If an average Joe and Jane Smoe think they discovered a treatment that works for them but it's not currently used by conventional medicine and they want to validate it for effectiveness and safety, they can ask an experienced doctor, in case of psoriasis a dermatologist, for an opinion. The doctor can then judge if the treatment deserves further ...

Yes, there is a cure. It won't be 100% effective for all diabetics to completely forgo all of their medication, but around 80% of diabetics will be able to go off all of their medication. This is one of many articles that address this particular topic: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1325029/ In short, the cause of insulin resistance is ...

Although cirumcision slightly reduces the chances of getting HIV, there is another pathology that it prevents almost in its entirety: Penile cancer (still it's doubtfully enough justification to warrant a circumcision public health policy or something, since it's very rare to begin with) Another I can think off-the-top of my head: Cholecystectomy for ...
