Forgot to say, meanwhile, you could begin a couple of elimination diets, just to see if you have developed a food allergy. Try not eating dairy for a month, and see if that helps. If not next month try a celiac diet, and see if that helps. These are the most common. If you find out what vitamins and...

I had this Dx some years ago. To me it is a meaningless Dx, to disguise an inability to find a causative factor behind the symptoms. it simply means "this person is having digestive problems relating to the bowel which our tests show no reason for." In other words, "we don't know.&quo...

How good are you with advanced mathematics? Do you enjoy mathematic proofs? Are you, or could you be skilled at using the language of mathematics to express ideas and prove ideas? It is a language of sorts after all, which becomes more and more misunderstood by the majority of people the more advanc...

Hello. I am a scientist myself, in the field of human biology, and having worked after college in many areas of clinical laboratories, before going into teaching college students myself. Because my field involves working directly with humans rather than working directly with lab animals or only with...

Protein mass wouldn't increase but percent of protein relative to percent of fats might have begun to increase. Go to elitefts.com and search starvation there for a better and more complete answer regarding starvation.

Hi there. I moved to an area in which "chigger mites" abound, and my home was on a wooded lot with many pines and sandy soil. I was being bitten, but my spouse was not. Some of my neighbors also were being bitten. I found a website that sells a natural product made from cedar oil that help...

Earth without animals would be earth without humans too, since we are also of the animal kingdom. Many plants would die without symbiotic fungi. We don't know the good of viruses, but perhaps they assist in many ways, not the least being keeping a balance in overpopulations of different species? Obv...

Oh yeah, "less developed" is probably a misnomer. That would depend on what it is that one wants to develop. Are we really smarter in every way, we who have possibly used up and messed up too much of the world that is our only home and support? Gee, even a crow knows better than to soil it...

Animal other than humans often communicate by means other than sound. Scents for example are often used more than sounds for communication even in animals that do use vocal signals as well: wild canines are a good example. In wolf packs, alpha females often can tell her pack members what to do by ea...

Oh yeah, forgot to add, if you are using antigen reagent from a supplier, did you use the same supplier pre and post? Also the same lot number of antigen reagent? Small variability in antigens can sometimes occur with new reagent or between lots of same reagent. Also check your expiration dates on e...

Could it be that the maximum amount of antibody antigen reaction readable was already there pre booster in the higher dilutions, while there was more antigen available for reaction in the testing at the lower dilutions? Hope my meaning is clear. Let me try another way. Does the test have only so muc...

Why do you have two proteins to add if you have one particular protein in mind for an antigen-antibody reaction? Are you trying to combine two proteins somehow?
