Swine Flu Information

Recommended Posts

Clever stuff DYIV. ;)

Vast amounts of information from all over the world being posted here:

http://www.flutrackers.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=1517

great link but has only worried me more and now there is boatloads of reading to do.

why are we hearing about tamiflu but the only treatments discussed on that site are zanamivir and osectamivir? sounds like tamiflu is pointless?

What are NSAIDS? I didn't know that taking ibuprofen or asprin when ill with the flu can cause the problems it does, thought that was what was recommended.

anyone know about vitamin d suppliments and/or dosages for children?

I'd take the flutrackers forum with a seriously big pinch of salt, and don't go doing weird dietary things with your kids.

I know all about internet forums, don't worry, the bits that I was reading were not from armchair warriors but doctors and reprts produced by medical pro's. Aren't you ar gp? anything to this vitamin d thing?

florida state had advised people to stock tamiflu or if they couldn't get it the black eldercerry extract - sambucol. Are they just giving people hope is is fruit extract really any use as an antiviral?

Tamiflu is just a retail name for oseltamivir.

Relenza is a retail name for zanamivir.

What are NSAIDS? I didn't know that taking ibuprofen or asprin when ill with the flu can cause the problems it does, thought that was what was recommended.

NSAID = Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Have a look at the discussion in off-topic about the warnings about this in regards to swine flu.

For medical advice, I would stick to the news/medical articles in flutrackers and not the armchair experts.

If I drop dead before I get a really cheap house I'll be coming back to do some serious haunting.

If that happens, might I suggest you start in Maidstone?

I don't think they will like the taste of donkey anymore than salt :lol:

Pepperoni on pizzas produced on the continent often contains horse/donkey meat, probably the best format to feed it to kids.

My mum is a family planning nurse (where you go for pregnancy advice and knob rot treatment). Their clinics are now cancelled and from next week are "Swine Flu" Centres :ph34r:

There is a certain poetic symmetry with public sector over spending.

Perhaps banksters and politicians will also be over represented.

Nature has it's own undeniable beauty.
