Sometimes a Systemic Yeast Infection can have light symptoms, and because of this they're dismissed as nothing to concerned about. The problem is, this allows the yeast to enter the bloodstream where a lot of different problems can eventuate and can even become a life-threatening situation.

The body naturally has a certain amount of yeast that lives in the body in small quantities and actually help the body, without doing any harm to it. There are also different types of microorganisms inside the body that are there to keep the yeast in check so an infection does not occur.

On-going stress attacks, poor choices of food, normal pregnancy changes, immune system deficiency diseases, antibiotic medications and other disease may abolish the tiny microorganisms and thereby allow the Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms to rage.

The Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms can differ from each individual, but here a few of the most usual ones:

Heavy sense of exhaustion and unusual run down feelings may arise.

1. The feelings of sensory disturbances, unusual muscle aches and pains, continual headaches, constant dizziness, and complaints of the sufferering of persistent tiredness are signs of a person with Systemic Yeast Infection.

2. Unusual or sudden sensitivity to chemicals or new food allergies.
Arising troubles which haven't occurred before with several chemicals or foods are common with those suffering from Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms.

3. Problems with the gastrointestinal tract.

On many occasions, as touched on in the previous detail of the food allergies, flatulence, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal itching, constipation, and diarrhea are the most common of the Symptoms.

It is even possible for thrush, a Yeast Infection affecting the mouth and/or throat, to develop.

4. Onset of urinary and genital problems.

5. Development of hives and skin rashes.

You could even be having a case of hives, and not know where they came from.

6. Suddenly feeling irritable or mildly depressed.

Many times people complain of Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms that include: mental confusion, feeling of being in a 'fog', difficulty focusing or concentrating, sleepness nights, memory loss, and decreased attention span.

7. Problems with the autoimmune system.

Some autoimmune disorders that normally become worse from a Systemic Yeast Infection are sarcoidosis, scleroderma, myasthenia gravis, arthritis, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenic purpura, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Yeast flourish on a body that is fed with sugar, refined starch, and chemical additives.
These chemicals, starches and sugars are also readily present in bread, cookies, chips and other junk foods which are a large part of many peoples diets.

When someone is under immense stress, the microorganisms in the body that control the yeast start to die off.

Anytime you think you may have a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms, you need to check with your doctor about what tests need to be run to determine what your body's level of Yeast organism is.
All in all, remember that it's vital to know if you are dealing with a Systemic Yeast Infection Symptoms so you can get the proper treatment.

    ‘Multi-target’ Immune Therapy Improves Outcomes Of Severe Lupus Nephritis
    ScienceDaily (July 7, 2008) — A new treatment using a combination of drugs targeting different parts of the immune system improves the recovery rate for patients with severe lupus involving the kidneys, according to a new report.
    “In our study, multi-target therapy is shown to be superior to traditional therapy for inducing complete remission of class V+IV lupus nephritis, with few side effects,” comments Dr. Lei-Shi Li of the Research Institute of Nephrology of Jinling Hospital, Nanjing University School of Medicine in Nanjing,China.
    The study included 40 patients with severe lupus nephritis. Lupus nephritis is inflammation of the kidneys occurring in patients with the immune system disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). All patients had “class V+IV” disease, meaning widespread inflammation and decreasing function of the kidneys. “This is a severe form of lupus nephritis that is traditionally treated with a single immunosuppressant drug, but the efficacy is very poor,” says Dr. Li. “We considered that, since the impact of severe SLE on the kidney involves various parts of the immune system, it is necessary to treat the different immune targets with a combination of immunosuppressant drugs.”
    One group of patients received this “multi-target” therapy, consisting of the immunosuppressant drugs tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil–commonly used as anti-rejection drugs in transplant patients–plus a steroid. The other group received standard treatment with a single immunosuppressant drug (cyclophosphamide).
    The complete remission rate, with recovery of normal kidney function, was about four times higher among patients receiving the three-drug combination. “For patients receiving multi-target therapy, the complete remission rate reached 65 percent at nine months, versus only 15 percent under traditional therapy,” says Dr. Li.
    Some patients in both groups had partial remission, with some return of kidney function. Overall, 95 percent of patients in the multi-target therapy group had partial or complete remission, compared to 55 percent with single-drug therapy. The rate of most adverse effects was also lower with multi-target therapy.
    Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disorder, in which the immune system attacks healthy organs and tissues. By reducing immune system activity, treatment with immunosuppressant drugs has improved most outcomes for patients with SLE. However, class V+IV lupus nephritis continues to be a major problem–it has a poor response to traditional treatments and can lead to permanent kidney damage. “The prognosis is very poor, so it is important for us to develop a new regimen for the treatment of this type of lupus nephritis,” says Dr. Li.
    Using a combination of drugs that affect different immune targets, multi-target therapy improves the chances of remission for patients with severe lupus nephritis. “The therapeutic effect of our multi-target therapy is apparently superior to traditional therapy for inducing complete remission of Class V+IV lupus nephritis, and also bears good tolerance under relatively lower dosages,” Dr. Li adds.
    The authors stress that their study is only preliminary. The study includes a small group of patients from a single hospital, with a relatively short follow-up time. Larger randomized trials with longer follow-up are required.

    severe calcific tendonitis pain?
    i was diagnosed with this in my left shoulder a few weeks ago, and got a cortisone injection. Pain went away shortly and never returned. A few days ago, I began to have mild discomfort in my right shoulder, then over the period of a couple days, it went from mild, to bad to worse. I’m typing this with one hand. I cant hardly move this arm at all without inducing stabbing pain. I had to go to a different doc, who treated me like crap, cuz i cant get in to my doc till next tuesday. Bad doc reluctantly gave me an injection, wanted me to spend a bunch of money on an MRI. Long story short, my shoulder hurts like SOB and I have to wait till tues to go to good doc. Is it normal that this pain should be this acute and is there anything i can do to relieve it till tues? I am a 32 year old female with lupus nephritis.

      If you have had tendinitis before you might know these solutions. However it is unusual to have such pain in a shoulder which is not being overused. Anyways, try this till tuesday….

      1) Take pain reliever such as Ibuprofen/Advil or even Tylenol Extra Strength works well. These will help reduce the pain immediately.

      2) Apply Ice for 15-20 mins. Do not apply the ice directly on the skin, keep the layer of a cloth.

      3) Do not go crazy and swing your arm thinking that it will get better right away.

      4) Don’T do any activity which hurts.

      Lupus is an auto immune disease. The body’s immune system attacks both good and bad cells, killing everything in it’s path…basically an over active immune system. There are varing stages of the disease and various levels of organ involvement. Every case of Lupus is different which is one of the reasons it is so difficult to diagnose. Some people never get organ involvement and have relatively mild symptoms of joint pain and fatigue. Others have severe organ involvement where Lupus attacks the kidneys (Lupus Nephritis), heart, brain, lungs, GI tract, Liver. It is considered systemic for this reason. Over 50% of people diagnosed with Lupus will have some type of kidney involvement from mild to severe. Lupus can also cause depression.

      Medications used to treat Lupus include steroids (prednisone and Methotrexate), immunosuppressants (Cellcept and Myfortic) and chemotherapy agents (Cytoxan and Rituxan). Plaquenil (an antimalarial) is still used with some patients but it’s use is considered antiquated.

      My wife was diagnosed with Lupus at age 15. She is now 30. She has severe organ involved Lupus that has attacked her kidneys and her heart. Last year she had eight heart attacks and had a defibulator/pacemaker put in.

      That being said we live a relatively normal life inspite of her illness. We have two adopted children. She is a practicing dentist and we live to the fullest. Sure there are days when she can’t get out of bed. Those are the times that we make her breakfast in bed and rent her movies. We have our yearly treks to the hospital sometimes lasting for weeks or months. We see pretty much every specialist in the book on a monthly basis. But we have a great life. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

      My point is that the life your family member can expect to have is the one he makes. One can chose to wallow in their suffering (and believe me there is a lot of suffering) or you can chose to do everything possible each and every day to fight, never giving up or giving in.

      Joining Lupus support groups can be very helpful to get the latest news and talk with people who have been through it. My wife and I run two Lupus support groups, one for the Lupus patient and one for the family and friends affected by this disease.

      I wish you and your family every good thing in the future.

    Kidney Biopsy and Lupus?
    My kidney doctor said i might lupus, but i don’t any symptoms, only tiredness, but i think i’m just lazy..lol…anyways, so he’s going set up an appointment to do a kidney biopsy. Does it hurt to get kidney biopsy. I can’t take pain at all. I’m so scared.. And for those who have lupus, what changes did you do for your lupus? Do you eat different or exercise more?

    Thank You

      If your dr has done blood tests, and found issues with your blood, and certain protiens in your urine, it may be suggestive of Lupus nerphritis. A different type of Lupus Then Systemic Lupus. Your symptoms may very well be different.

      I have Systemic Lupus (SLE). I havent needed a kidney biopsy, but did have a Liver Biopsy because I have Lupoid Hepatitis (autoimmune Hepatitis, fr the Lupus. I know this much, as with a liver Biopsy they do put you to sleep, so you arent awake. The liver biopsy when I woke, was sore, but no massive pain, plus most dr’s and surgons will give you pain killers for the after surgery.

      If your super freaked, call the doctor, and ask him to explain his exact reasoning why he thinks you may have Lupus nephritis. If you don’t like the answer, get a second opinion. But If you do have Lupus Nephritis, you do need treatment right away. It is a needed organ, and you can’t sit and do nothing, the longer it sits, and the more ill you may become. I Co-Own a Lupus/autoimmune support group, several have Lupus Nephritis, and because they acted fast, and take their meds, are able to work, and live thier lives.

      They may change your diet, and some moderate, or mild exersice to begin with can only make you stronger. I swim, to help me with the times when I am down with severe flares (periods of moderate/severe disease activity). Lupus can range from Mild to Severe. He may have also done some pre bloodwork, for autoimmune disease that has come back positive as well.

      The changes I made for lupus over the years have been many as my life and illness have changed. But I have a lot of Central Nervous System Problems, not all with Lupus do. So I had to stop working. I eat better, I took swimming again a few years ago, I created an online support group, I pay more attention to my health, dont drink alcohol anymore or very little. I try to enjoy the good days, weeks or months a lot more, and appreciate them. I rest when my body tells me to. Oh and for the 1st time in my life I actually take most perscriptions perscribed….there are a few, and my dr knows which ones, I just physically can not tolerate. So we found ones I could.

      Good luck,
      Chris

      What is a Kidney?

      In humans, the kidneys are two small organs located near the vertebral column at the small of the back. The left kidney lies a little higher than the right kidney. They are bean-shaped, about 4 in. (10 cm) long and about 21/2 in. (6.4 cm) wide.

      What is its major function?

      They kidneys have a couple of different functions. The main purpose of the kidney is to separate urea, mineral salts, toxins, and other waste products from the blood. The kidneys also conserve water, salts, and electrolytes. At least one kidney must function properly for life to be maintained.

      Diseases and Conditions of the Kidney

      Some of the most common kidney diseases and conditions are: polycystic kidney disease, nephrosis, lupus nephritis, diabetic nephropathy, rhabdomyolysis, kidney stones, and renal tubular acidosis.

      Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an inherited disease characterized by the growth of numerous cysts filled with fluid in the kidneys.

      Nephrosis is a kidney disease characterized by lesions of the epithelial lining of the renal tubules. The lesions cause a disturbance in the filtration function of the kidney. As a result, large amounts of protein is found in the urine.

      Lupus nephritis is an inflammation of the kidney caused by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a disease of the immune system.

      Diabetic Nephropathy is a kidney condition that occurs only in people with diabetes mellitus. It results in progressive damage to the small filtering units of the kidney (glomeruli). About 20-30% of people with diabetes develop diabetic nephropathy.

      Glomerulonephritis is a type of kidney disease caused by inflammation of the internal kidney structures.

      Pyelonephritis is an infection of the kidney and the ureters.

      Rhabdomyolysis is a disorder involving injury to the kidney. It has been linked to the drug crestor.

      A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine and build up on the inner surfaces of the kidney. Kidney stones occur in roughly one in 10 people in the United States. Once a person gets more than one stone, others are likely to develop.

      Renal tubular acidosis (RTA) is a disease that occurs when the kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine, which causes a person’s blood to remain too acidic.

      Kidneys and Diabetes

      Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure, accounting for more than 40 percent of new cases. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a major factor in the development of kidney problems in people with diabetes.
