Ok well i will make this as quick as possible. My brother in law has pulmonary hypertension. Diagnosed 2 years ago. He is on oxygen but has it set to 10L per min or more but O2 wont go above 90 for 5 days and refuses medical help. He is having fits of rage, paranoia, and thinks no one is trying to care for him. He also has diabetes and always consumes sugar and uses his insulin almost 3 times a day. He is putting a mental strain on his family and is getting violent. I am at wits end and know this might make me sound bad but how long does he have.

Hello, my son and daughter in law have been trying to conceive for over a year, they are now having test run, he recently had a seaman test and results were in today, his sperm count is 40,000,000 however, he has some odd shape sperm, some with two heads according to the nurse and request he retake the exam. My daughter in law is very upset and thinks this means they can not conceive, I told her It sounded like they wanted to discuss possibly some risk, becuase they want them to make an appointment with the specialist to discuss the results.

My daughter has Addissons Disease, alomg with absorption problems, recently she went through an Addissons crisis, and her Albumin levels fell to 11, also a lot of her other levels in her body went very low.At the moment she is being fed through an NJ Tube, but she has a lot of swelling inher body, they say that this will subside when her Albumin levels raise. They have risen to 28, but recently they have been going up and down, from m28 to 21 then back to 23 and this week, back to 21, she also has developed an infection in her leg, which I believe can make Albumin levels fall quickly, is this true, and is there anything else you can tell me please I would be gratefull.
