What are the long term prognoses for nephritis in conjunction with tonsillitis?

I had tonsillitis as a teenager and also developed nephritis with very dark brown urine. My doctor (now retired) was not specific with the type of nephritis dx, or with the long term effects. All he told me was that the type of nephritis I had is usually diagnosed in children 5-6 yrs of age and usually results in death to the child.

Post streptococcal acute glomerulonephritis generally has a good long term outlook. Total recovery from the initial episode is the rule. There is slightly higher risk for you of developing kidney problems as you get older (20-40 yrs) but the odds are in your favor. Your doctor should keep an eye out and any problems that may affect your kidneys should be aggressively treated(diabetes, hypertension.  (+ info)

Does lupus nephritis always lead to hypertension?

I'm just wondering if a person can have lupus nephritis without ever developing hypertension?
I know that lupus itself does not necessarily to hypertension, but if you have kidney involvement, does that always cause hypertension, or can you have kidney involvement with developing high blood pressure?

I can answer this question with a very high degree of accuracy. Lupus Nephritis will always cause hypertension, eventually. That is to say that a person who has initial onset of Lupus Nephritis may not start out with hypertension but as the kidney's worsen, hypertension will definately follow. It is a cause and effect...when the kidney's lose their function, hypertension sets in. If a person has been diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis but they still don't have hypertension it's becasue the kidney's haven't been severely damaged yet. As the disease progresses hypertension will ensue.  (+ info)

How can I make my hereditary dark circles disappear without a lot of makeup?

my under-eye bags are unfortunately hereditary and I don't want to have to apply all this makeup in the morning to hide them. could I just do concealer and powder? or do I absolutely have to take the extra time? help!

no! all you need is lotion concealer and powder. make sure the concealer is one shade lighter than your skin tone. apply lotion under your eyes. dab the concealer under your eyes, focusing on the inner corner, blending out wards. after you all blended apply powder to your face and your good to go.


1.) you dont want to "erase" the dark circles because you will look fake. you just want to make the circles less noticleble.

2.) you can put teabags on your eyes the night before to reduce puffyness

good luck!  (+ info)

How can I get rid of hereditary acne?

I'm pretty sure my acne is hereditary because my dad also has really bad acne. How can I get rid of it? I know everyone's acne is different and different things work for different people, but what helped you the most?

Get good nutrition. These top five nutrients have been shown to have a very positive effect on your skin and in treating acne. These nutrients, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, selenium and chromium, can pack a powerful punch in your acne war.

Zinc - Zinc is the Acne stopper. It works in several ways to both treat acne and prevent it. It helps the body regulate certain hormones which prevents acne, but it also helps with wound healing, tissue regeneration and boosting the body's immune system.Most people in the United States actually have a marginal zinc deficiency, but you can get zinc from many of your favorite foods, such as seeds, nuts, legumes and whole grains.

Vitamin A - Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that helps you have beautiful, healthy hair and skin. You can find vitamin A from fruits and vegetables. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables as fruits give you a good dose of vitamin A by providing carotenes. Oatmeal is a good source of vitamin A, as well as cantaloupe, honeydew melon, broccoli, spinach and sweet potato. Liver contains a megadosis: watch out, vitamin A is stored in the body and you can actually get vitamin A poisoning.

Vitamin E - Vitamin E helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. This is often prevalent in male acne patients, but vitamin E has proven beneficial to both male and female acne sufferers. Almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, spinach, broccoli and mango are all great sources of vitamin E.Even a snack as simple as ¼ to ½ cups of raw nuts and seeds can help your skin become clearer and healthier.

Selenium - Selenium works much like vitamin E in that it also helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. Selenium can be found in foods such as vegetables, meats and bread. Some nuts, such as Brazil nuts and walnuts are also rich in selenium. You can also supplement your diet with selenium, taking 100 to 200 micrograms per day. However, 3 ½ ounces of beef has 35 micrograms of selenium and 3 ounces of tuna has 63. Brazil nuts, though, are the winner with 544 micrograms of selenium per ounce.

Good Luck...  (+ info)

How can I lessen the darkness of hereditary under eye circles without makeup?

I've always had dark under eye circles, whether I'm tired/stressed/etc or not. My mom is the same way, so are my brother and sister, so it's hereditary. Can I lessen the color without the use of makeup?

Thanks :-)

Well what I did was put cold tea bags on my eyes and rest. You could put cucumber on your eyes too. It takes a week for them to get less darker and its very good for your skin.  (+ info)

What are some ways to prevent high blood pressure and heart disease if it is hereditary?

My mom and dad suffer from high blood pressure,high cholesterol. It run on both sides of the family,that along with diabetes and heart disease. My mom started taking blood pressure medication young,in her later 20's. My dad suffered from a stroke due to high blood pressure. I am 22yrs old and do not want to suffer this especially while young. Are there any ways I can be proactive about not suffering from those conditions now and later on in life being that it is hereditary? Or do I not have a chance in preventing it?

Keep your weight down through diet and exercise. And don't have stress in your life. That is all you can do.

If the heart disease has been mostly in one form, then consider testing for it now while there are no symptoms. It might provide problems getting health insurance, but you will be able to take steps to limit future problems. And vote democrat to ease the future insurance coverage problem as republicans are against people with heart disease getting insurance.

If you have a heredity disease it will probably already be detectable. Some forms of cardiomyopathy will appear in the late teens. Many highschool athletes have died from it. How quickly it advances depends in part on your lifestyle.  (+ info)
