Brief Answer:
Not documented in any ophthalmic literature,Just a hypothesis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query!
An ophthalmologist follow whats there written in a standard text book.Every procedure mentioned in standard books are being researched for years,numerous trials are done on it before making it a standard procedure.so according to me its his opinion(hypothesis) which is not yet proved.Secondly both the drugs he mentioned are of same group corticosteroids. I dont feel that it can make such big difference using medicine from the same group.So i would say that it is a hypothesis which he has given but he has to prove it firstly.
Thanks!

Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX , Thanks a lot for your answer, it is a correct answer . But there is a difference between Cortiosteroids , because it is written in the Technical Bullettin of the Predniform Forte by the manufacturer Sandoz , that if the Eyepressure is increased instead of reduced , the medicin must be stopped . In my case , my Optalmologist rather increased into 6 drops a day , whereas she diagnosed as Glaucoma Uveitic , caused by bacteria. My bloodtest showed that it was not bacteria or there was no bacteria , it was caused by Allergy . For that reason it went to Eyepressure 50Hg.mm . Only with Diamox it was reduced into 33Hg.mm . Later on the next Opftalmologist treated me with the Laserbeam , where it exploded my arteria . Later I discovered that she did not have any experience beforehand and I was a learning hand . My fate ! But my question is : What is your opinion of the retina dispatch of my right eye in the XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Dr. XXXXXXX Bresser experiences , is he wellknown ? I have to go to him for his upfindings anyways .

Tightening the Tummy Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics,strength training,abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white.When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.

My query is to a dermatologist. My Name is Mrs. Nair, age- 38 years, female. My problem is listed below:

In 2006 April I started having hyper pigmentation on my face, neck and upper back. I consulted a specialist at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore and underwent blood test. As per the blood test my IGE (immunoglobin E) was 460, high above normal. Therefore, I underwent a patch test and the result of the patch test said I was allergic to PPD and some parabens. So my problem was diagnosed as hyper pigmentation due to contact dermatitis. I had used hair colour since February 2006 and as per this result I completely stopped using the same. I underwent chemical peeling, micro dermabrasion and laser treatment subsequently. My facial skin improved a bit, but not much. I had to shift to Egypt on official assignment and here again I consulted two dermatologists. They suggested a skin biopsy for Macular Amyloidosis and a biopsy was done. As per the biopsy report "bundles of collegen found in the dermis and slightly reactive to congo red staining. diagnosis: Amyloidosis."I do not have any itching on the skin except sometimes which i take as due to dryness. Can you please confirm what is my condition? Is there any treatment for this? I would really be grateful for your reply as I cannot consult a doctor from India face to face now as I am still in Egypt.
