I have two liver diseases and fibromyalgia: Is saccharomyces cerevisiai a danger to my healt?


I read that it was a danger to the liver and bone marrow in certain cases?
----------

The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is widely used in baking, brewing, wine making, and biotechnology and previously has had GRAS (generally regarded as safe) status. Recent evidence indicates the involvement of S. cerevisiae in a range of superficial and systemic diseases. Numerous cases of S. cerevisiae-induced vaginitis have been documented as have cases of oropharyngeal infection. Potentially fatal systemic disease due to S. cerevisiae has been recorded in bone marrow transplant patients and in those immunocompromised as a result of cancer or AIDS. A number of studies have indicated that commercially available strains of S. cerevisiae may cause disease in certain individuals.

It seems more of a danger to the immunocompromised.
S. cerevisiae should now be regarded as an opportunistic pathogen, albeit of relatively low virulence  (+ info)

What possible diseases/problems could somebody have from an inflamed liver?


My girlfriend has recently been told she might have leukemia again, its not certain but she said she has an inflamed liver and this might be a symptom of it. But i was wondering if it turns out not to be this (i hope not!) then what else could it be?
----------

Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver cells.
This is usually caused when the liver cells become
damaged and the immune system of the body
responds to it.
The causes of a problem with the liver becoming
damaged are: alcohol consumption, medication
toxification, chemical exposure, hereditary condition,
biliary obstruction/malformation/infection,
viral infections like hepatitis A-B-C, parasite
infections, Mononucleuosis, cardiac/vascular problems,
mushroom poisoning, auto immune disease,
fatty liver disease, cancer/tumors/growth/cysts,
and there are others.

The inflammation inside the liver will cause the
liver to enlarge
in size. This can be seen on an ultrasound or
Ct scan.
Many times this can be treated and if the
cause can be removed, the liver cells can heal
and the problem reversed.
A liver biopsy is the best test done to determine
whether or not the inflammation has lead to a
disease, known as Cirrhosis of the liver which
is when the liver cells die off and form scar tissue
inside the liver that blocks the flow of blood.

I hope this information has been of some help
to you. Best wishes  (+ info)

If someone is an alcoholic what diseases could they get in their liver?


I know someone who was an alcoholic and then their liver stopped working right. It started bleeding and not working right. What kind of disease could this be if they were an alcoholic?
----------

Alcoholics usually cirrhosis of the liver, esophageal varicies, ascites and vitamin deficiencies.

The bleeding comes from when they get ulcerations in the stomach, colon and esophagus.

Why are people with cirrhosis (or any liver damaged diseases) at risk of diabetes?


I understand why they would be at risk for hypoglycemia (b/c if a liver is damaged it cannot store glycogen).... but for diabetes I wasn't so sure why.

Is it because since liver cannot store excess glucose, the body's sugars have no where to go when a person has excessive sugars intake, and so that's why they are at risk of diabetes?
----------

impaired glucose metabolism  (+ info)

Why do patients with liver diseases commonly develop blood clots disorders?


The liver makes many of the proteins needed to make blood clot. In certain liver disorders the liver cannot make enough of these proteins and so blood does not clot so well. People with liver disease will usually take regular blood tests to check liver function and this includes their prothrombin time (the time it takes for blood to clot). Usually blood should clot quickly, within about 14 seconds maximum. Patients with liver disease often take longer.  (+ info)
