    Prednisone before ct scan


    I don't think that prednisone can cause pancreatitis, but probably covered the pancreatitis that you had. From my understanding prednisone reduces inflammation throughout the body. Drink lots of water to get the prednisone and the contrast from the scan out of your system. If you had a slight infection, which you possibly could have since you were having a abdomenal CT scan then prednisone might make it worse. I hope your doctor is very aggressive with this infection. I agree that pancreatitis which is inflammatory will not be enhanced with the pred. However are you really taking pred or are you taking solumedrol which is normally given before contrast? Good luck and I hope your results turn out with the answers you need.

I broke out in a gentle rash that started the next day. The irony is that I saw the dermatologist the same afternoon that I had had the CT in the morning, and I had nothing to show him. Most unlikely the next time will be worse, but it is possible. Nothing dangerous, no swelling, no wheezing or shortness of breath, no hives. To play it safest, I take premeds, antihistamines and steroids (multiple doses of high dose prednisone), starting the day before. Just a mild, slightly itchy raised bumpy breakout on my arms and chest. Steroids, especially by mouth, often take a day or more to kick in. Skipping the contrast injection (non ionic for those in the know) is not an option I am told, as it helps outline the nodes, but a different brand of dye is possible. especially with a colleague and friend as the patient, so this is going to take some finesse to avoid the full course of allergic prophylaxis, which seems to me to be a bit of overkill.

The American College of Radiology recommends the following premedication: You may need to drink a liquid that may be either water- or barium-based if you are having an abdominal or pelvic CT scan.

  6. I’ve been “micro-dosing” berberine, usually around 150-200mg a day for a few days. The smaller dose (most supplements come in 500mg pills) came after I experienced side effects from higher doses. My main focus is on gut repair, but I’ve stumbled across some research, and pieced together a few themes that had been rattling around in my mind, that point towards berberine supplementation as an anti-cancer strategy, which it may be, but as we’ll see it’s dependent on dose. See also: a systematic review of the anticancer properties of berberine And we’re going to get to berberine in just a minute, I promise. But first some contextual housekeeping to set the stage. Glucose, and of course sucrose as well, causes inflammatory spikes in insulin and also acts to feed cancer cells. I’m now more of a plant based guy, but on my long and winding health journey, I started on the ketosis / paleo side, mainly because there are some very compelling authors /commentators on that side of the fence.

Both normal cells, and cancer cells feed at the same trough, or so the thinking goes. For example, Tim Ferriss has had a number of guests on his podcast who I think highly of, such as Dr. The Mayo Clinic claims to have debunked this theory as a “cancer myth,” but it seems to be at the heart of the ketogenic philosophy.
