Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Who have fevers and abdominal pain, it is more common as we age. So the treatment you mentioned is antibiotics so in general, the ones you mentioned Cipro ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are antibiotics in severe cases, where the infection isn't treated someone actually may have intestinal surgery to remove the infected part of the intestine I wouldn't say in your case. The main concern is that someone can get quite sick from the infection. So if they're on antibiotics and still having fevers or chills a few days later, we would just be worried that the infection isn't controlled that someone has what we might call sepsis where they have fevers or getting sicker. So the first treatment would be to get IV antibiotics and in severe case. Diverticulitis is treated with surgery. So I just keep an eye out for worsening belly pain, ongoing, fever chills. If those are the case, you need to seek medical attention. Dave, thanks for the call six five one nine eight nine nine two two six text is eight one eight zero seven see if we can find another text. We have a bunch of those. Let's see what you can find there. All right one person asked. I've been told that I have low T or low testosterone and need therapy. What are the concerns with this somewhat new therapy? So in general, most people don't need to be tested for testosterone levels in men testosterone levels drop as we age, but unless you're really having symptoms from this. This isn't something that needs to be treated replacing testosterone can increase your risk for heart disease among other things. So it is important to talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks of this idea to know more specifics to give you advice about should I be treated or not? But it is an area where we don't have a lot of long term data. So you want to proceed with caution? Now, the Texas about a month ago. I lifted something heavy the area around my elbow has been sore since then when I lift anything is there a chance, I tore a muscle. What do you think? It sounds more likely that what's more communists that the tendon is bothered rather than the muscle itself. Usually when you tear muscle. You would have a lot of swelling at the time a black and blue area where there would be bleeding around the joint. So it'd be more common to have tendinitis or inflammation of the tendon. There are ways to brace the elbow. So you've heard of having someone having tennis elbow, and there is a brace that could support this area. So I check it out with your doctor and see if just wearing a simple brace or doing physical therapy might help. I'd worry less about a muscle problem. Six five one nine eight nine nine two two six align is open to take advantage of that. Or if it's easier send a text eight one eight zero seven Catherine is calling from Blaine with a question, Catherine. What is your question? Komo news. All right question is I try answering. It's a it's a diuretic, Tennessee. Is that known the cars diabetes. If too long actor, I've been told us says so I wanted to ensure that I know what it's like. Sure. So the caller is taking triamterene and hydrochlorothiazide which is usually abbreviated by doctors to h c TV it's a very very common blood pressure pill. You are right that over time. HGTV does raise the blood sugar slightly. I think it's an overstatement to say it causes diabetes because in most people if it raises your blood sugar from a normal level to a little bit higher. It won't make you diabetic in some people who are right at the borderline of diabetes. It may you know, put you over that edge. Most of the time. There are a lot of different blood pressure medications, including this HDTV with triamterene side, talk to your doctor to say, you know, would you rather be on a different medication, but usually on balance, we don't take people off of this because of this relatively uncommon side effect. So it may raise your blood sugar. That's correct to say that it's causing diabetes is a little bit different. It raises a blood sugar slightly, but in and of itself, it's not gonna take someone who's normal and healthy and just instantly give them diabetes. All right, doctor. We need to take a quick break here. Thanks Kathryn six five one nine eight nine nine two two six a text is eight one eight zero seven keep in mind here around the twin cities and surrounding area.
