Hi. I have mast cell disease diagnosed by elevated prostoglandin d2 and prostoglandin f2 alpha levels. They were both more than double the high normal levels.
I'm more recently having shortness of breath and esophagitis. My gastro Doctor think it's may be eosinophilic esophagitis which could be related to the mast cell disease.
I just had an endoscopy yesterday and they did some biopsies to check for eosinophils.
Does an elevated prostoglandin d2 level confirm mast cell disease? or could I have an eosinophilic disease instead?

I respond well to steroids, but would rather not take them anymore due to side effects.
Are there any treatments other than steroids that lower eosinophils? I want to try one to see if it helps my shortness of breath and esophagitis. Thanks

No, elevated prostaglandin levels does not confirm mast cell disease.

I
Since September I have been suffering with a "sore" on the tip of my middle finger, right hand which doesn't heal. Have been to two rheumatologists, my family doctor (internist), and a vascular surgeon. All seem to think it is a problem from Raynaud's. I have diminished blood flow to that finger. A compounded cream has been used since November and though it helps the pain the raw area is getting larger and the skin around it is peeling. I am worried that I may lose the tip of my finger. Do you have any thoughts on what I should do? What specialist should I go to see?

Brief Answer:
Raynauds Phenomeon

I am 32 years old , married and I have one kid of 6 years. My last LMP is 30th May, 2010. The next schedule date was 28th June, 2010. I did not take precaution in the last month and there is no period till today. On the other hand I notice uneasy feeling. So I perform preg Color card test today morning. The result shows two pink lines in the test card (One is deep pink line and another is light pink line). Does it confirm that I am pregnant?



I do not want any baby at this time due to some unavoidable problem. So if I am pregnant could you please advice me how can I remove it with the help of medicine? I read some thing about RU-486(mefepristone and misoprostol.) in the internet. But I am confused about the administration and quantity of these medicine. So I shall be remain grateful to you if you kindly advice clearly the correct medicine, its administration , side effects and pre-cautions needed for it.



With kind regards,
